The animals made their film comeback in Stallone’s 2018 movie, “Creed II,” the magazine reported.

“In ‘Creed 2’ with my original buddies from the first Rocky ... Cuff and Link, now about 44 years old!” Stallone wrote in his May 5 post.

In "Rocky", Stallone introduced the turtles to Adrian Pennino (Talia Shire) as, "the exotic animals I was telling you about. These are my friends, Cuff and Link," Entertainment Weekly reported.

“I sold them to ya,” Pennino tells Rocky Balboa, reminding him she was working at a pet shop when the film’s star bought the turtles.
