Trivia:

The Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., company offices are located on Ventura Blvd. in Tarzana (CA) and the setting is literally a jungle oasis housing memorabilia from the era of the Tarzan creator. His former home in Chicago's Oak Park, where he grew up, is still standing and a bronze marker noting this was placed in the front yard at 700 Linden Ave. on the 100th anniversary of his birth.
