Trivia

The show had an interesting run in the United States. Originally, only the first season was aired. When the series Tarzan: The Epic Adventures (1996) was canceled mid-run, the networks aired episodes from the second and third seasons of this series in its place, strung together into one hour blocks.

Goofs

Although the program is set in Africa, the elephant portraying Tantor is clearly an Asian elephant, having considerably smaller ears than her African counterparts. See more »

Quotes

Jane: How do you always make everything so simple?
Tarzan: Practice.

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! :)
