In the 1880s Jason McCord travels the country trying to prove he's no coward. He needs to do this because the military career of this West point graduate came to an end when he was thrown out of the army after being accused of cowardice.
Tarzan (Lord Greystoke), already well educated and fed up with civilization, returns to the jungle and, more-or-less assisted by chimpanzee Cheetah and orphan boy Jai, wages war against poachers and other bad guys.

Square-jawed, super tall Chuck Connors takes on Africa. One of Ivan Tors' series based on Tors' own 1967 movie, "Africa, Texas Style" starring Hugh O'Brien.
A retired British Commander hires Texas Cowboy Jim Sinclair (Chuck Connors) to help him teach the Masai how to domesticate wild animals American Style.
As a Chuck Connors fan, I was glad to see him back in action after a bad run on "Branded," an unusually silly Western series that had him going town to town running from a charge of cowardice in the U.S. Cavalry.
Was this better? In some ways. Not a great series, but definitely fun. It was running around the time of the Tarzan with Ron Ely and Daktari (whose theme song went "Daktari - Daktari - Daktari, Daktari, Daktari")
both, shows about Africa.
I don't remember much about the series, except, Jim Sinclair dressed in Safari garb, carried a big carbine rifle, and rode a horse.
Also, I remember lots and lots of African animals. It wasn't that great of a series, but it kept me entertained. Nothing Connors did could rival "The Rifleman," I don't believe.
