Joel Hodgson (creator of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988)) and writing partner, Nell Scovell, did a pass on the script early on. They added the opening cartoon sequence and were the first to make Ape talk. As typical of a lot of credit arbitration, the first writer and last writer received on-screen credit. See more »

Deep in the heart of Africa is a place no man has ever entered. The place that belongs to the lion, the elephant and the ape. A place known as the Bukuvu. Travellers flying overhead can only glimpse at its many marvels, its sparkling rivers, its lush veldts, its billowy cloud formations and its hidden mountains. Never fear, my friends. All was not lost. Scraped and boo-booed, they searched high and low, but they never recovered their most precious cargo.

At the end of the credits, Ape says "Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the king of the jungle". You then hear George yell, followed by a loud thud. See more »
This is a great family movie! My children, aged 4-8, love it and it has become one of my all time favorite live action family films. I have enjoyed watching it many times and it is a welcomed addition to our family video library. The drums beats never fail to get me in the mood for George.
