The movie was filmed during the Fall of 1965 with Mike Henry experiencing so many traumas (Chimp bite, infections, etc) that by January 1966 he quit the Tarzan movie series. The movie was shoved to the side for two years to work on the 1966 TV series as well as the release of "Tarzan & The Great River" (1967) that young actor Steve Bond (The Jungle Boy) had aged from 12 to 15 by the time the movie was filmed and released for the big screen.

Mike Henry's last film outing as Tarzan is in this film Tarzan And The Jungle Boy. Although shot in Brazil, but with establishing shots of African wildlife to make sure that Tarzan after a few films away from Africa was back in his native habitat. Too bad that this warmed over remake of Tarzan Finds A Son was not better than what MGM did on its back lot jungle sets back in the days of Johnny Weissmuller.
Tarzan takes on an assignment to find a lost kid in the jungle played by young Steve Bond. He hears about it from journalists Ron Gans and Alicia Gur who want to tag along, but Tarzan moves better on his own. For any number of reasons they should have stayed behind, but Gur especially wants the story. They kidnap a drunk Cheta and follow Tarzan into the jungle with Cheta on a leash.
Tarzan And The Jungle Boy features 1960 Olympic Decathalon champion Rafer Johnson as the villain locked in a struggle with his real life brother Ed for the succession to be tribal chief. They have their own little Decathalon in the jungle which consists of versions of the Javelin, the pole vault, and the broad jump. That's easily the best part of the film.
This one's a little too unbelievable for me to swallow, especially Tarzan telling some kid about the benefits of civilization.
