This Hollywood power couple remains on a shelluva run.

Oscar-nominated Sylvester Stallone’s cinematic pet turtles Cuff and Link, 43 years after their cameo appearances in the original “Rocky” movie, are still alive and kicking. The celebrity reptiles even made a comeback last year with small roles in “Creed II,” Stallone revealed in a recent Instagram post.

“In CREED 2 with my original buddies from the first Rocky ... CUFF and LINK, now about 44 years old,” wrote Stallone in a shot where he’s standing in front of the turtles’ tank.

The post by the 72-year-old actor earned closed to 400,000 likes. There’s a chance Stallone’s flippered friends could outlive him: Turtles are know to live as long as 80 years.

The pets first appeared briefly in a scene featuring Stallone as Rocky Balboa with his love interest Adrian Pennino, as played by Talia Shire in the 1976 movie “Rocky.”
