Trivia

This film was due to be entitled "Carry On Tarzan" but Peter Rogers was unable to get the rights to use the word Tarzan. Then they considered "Carry On Jungle Boy", which is what the movie was known as during the shoot, before eventually settling on the final title "Carry on Up the Jungle" after principal photography had finished.

Safari Madness
16 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kind of a take on Tarzan films, this film stars a truncated version of the Carry On group, but it has Sid James, Joan Sims, Charles Hawtrey, Kenneth Connor, Bernard Bresslaw, Frankie Howerd and Jacki Piper, so thats fine. Its basically the adventures of an African safari and the crazy things which happen, such as mingling with the animals, tribesmen and each other. The only person I would have liked to see is Kenneth Williams, as they could have written a part for someone scared of his own shadow and he would have been perfect for it. That said, the film is full of the usual innuendos that the Carry On films all have and this one is fun. Not the best in the series but still worth watching.
