Trivia

Wolf Larson beat out Joe Lara for the role of Tarzan. Lara had previously starred in the made-for-TV movie Tarzan in Manhattan (1989) and would later go on to play the title role again in the series Tarzan: The Epic Adventures (1996). See more »

Goofs

One of the species that Jane is attempting to protect is the Green Iguana. However, Green Iguanas can only be found in Central and South America, not in Africa. See more »

Quotes

Simon: I missed the city once, Jane. I missed the rush and the color, and the sight of women so beautiful in their dresses and high heels. Then I looked at this jungle, at the birds and the trees, the ground so alive beneath me, and I realized that out here in the middle of nowhere, in a place not even on the map... I was closer to God.

Only saw 1 episode, but the best laugh I ever had!
15 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

This actually lasted 3 seasons!?!

Maybe I just caught an early episode, but I didn't think it would bode well for the series.Typical generic episode plot: strange illness makes people/animals sick. When Jane teaches Tarzan a new word, "antidote", Wolf Larson delivers what is the funniest line I've ever heard on a unintentional sitcom, in straight 'surfer-dude' monotone (You can almost hear him use the word 'like' at the beginning of the sentence):

"(Like,)Tarzan find antiDOTE." (Emphasis intended on the last syllable)

There, I've said my peace. I hope you found it as amusing as I did! :)
