Storyline

George is the king of the jungle and protector of all who live there. George may be dim-witted. He may be clumsy. But what do you expect from someone who swings into trees habitually? Besides, he still manages to save the jungle and it's inhabitants from the numerous threats that besiege them. George is aided by his friend, an ape named Ape, Ursula, and his pet dog/elephant Shep. Other cartoons with George of the Jungle include Tom Slick, a gallant race car driver and Super Chicken, a fowl super hero who dips into the Super Sauce. Written by Brian D. Switzer

Dutiful, But Dumb
9 April 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This is definitely one of the most underrated shows ever produced by Jay Ward. It was by far the easiest one for me to get into due to the fact that unlike Rocky and Bullwinkle, it didn't go into long out story lines. Also the supporting features Super Chicken and Tom Slick could have been series in their own right. George is just as funny today as it was back in 1967 and his supporting cast of Ape, Ursula and his elephant/doggie Shep all made this a classic show.
