Cheetah! What is it?
Cheetah must be seeing things. What is it, Tarzan? What is it?
Uguna. Strange sound in sky. Big. Far off.
I don't hear anything.
Tarzan hear. Cheetah hear. Elephant hear.
Now I hear it. Like a great wind coming.

It brings back wonderful memories where, after going to church Sunday morning and having Sunday dinner (always roast beef, country ham or fried chicken), my sisters and I would gather around the old tabletop Philco B&W TV to watch "Jungle Theater" which always showed either Tarzan or Jungle Jim (Johnny Weismuller's other alter ego). This was always one of my favorites, especially the dive off the Brooklyn Bridge and Tarzan giving his famous yell in the shower, fully clothed. And to us and all our friends, there was only one Tarzan, Johnny Weismuller. Alas,kids today don't know what they're missing. Ongowa, pacey, Cheetah!
