Trivia

Resenting the iconoclastic vision of the character, the heirs of Edgar Rice Burroughs pressed charges to prevent any use what so ever of Tarzan's name in the film. That's why "Tarzoon" suddenly became "Shame", even in its French version. One can also notice there is no mention of the author's name in the credits. See more »

Classic must see for every teenager
26 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Classic cult movie that everyone remembers as a teenager.

My memory of the film still makes me laugh and have not seen it for 30 years or so! I wonder what I would think if I watched it again now aged 45.

It's playground humour will not appeal to everybody, but anyone one who hasn't seen it should give it a go.

It will entertain anybody who finds VIZ funny or people who giggle when they fart in a lift and then leave at the next floor, or people who get into a lift just to fart and then leave on the same floor!

The animation is very good for it's time and it is what it is.

Great.
