Storyline

Opens in a jungle village where a white woman,Miss Banks, is teaching the natives English in a makeshift classroom and her aide, Lola, is teaching a white boy, Bomba the Jungle Boy, the alphabet in an adjacent makeshift jungle. This paradise is soon lost when a couple of white hunters invade the area, an elephant sanctuary, with the intentions of killing a lot of elephants for their highly-profitable tusks. Their first order of business is to kill their guide and then go after the elephants. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

Asian Elephants were used-because African Elephants are hard to train.Larger ears were attached to the Asian Elephants to hide the fact See more »

Goofs

The story takes place in Africa, but all of the elephants, except those seen in brief snippets of archive footage, are Indian, not African; in some of the sequences, obviously lifted out of previous films, large, artificial ears have been attached to the Indian elephants to make them look more like their African cousins, but the results are nothing more than ludicrous.

Elephants are strolling around as muscular Bomba (Johnny Sheffield) rides one through the African jingle. Bomba must swing into action when a snake threatens his bird. After this, Bomba visits attractive Donna Martell (as Lola). This shapely brunette is helping "old maid" schoolteacher Edith Evanson (as Miss Banks) teach the natives to read. Bored with her job, Ms. Martell is much more excited to be tutoring Bomba on the side. The jungle boy is a quick study, in academic areas...

Bomba learns to spell "L.I.O.N", but Ms. Martell is more interested in "L.O.V.E." A good jungle boy, Bomba is not interested in finding a mate. Frustrated, Martell decides to make Bomba jealous by seeming to be sexually available for trigger-happy John Kellogg (as Bob Warren) and amorous Myron Healey (as Joe Collins). On safari, this dastardly duo is out to shoot elephants and steal local ivory. Lola's idea is dumb and dangerous. You could say: Whatever Lola wants, Lola doesn't get.
