Trivia

Almost every element from the George of the Jungle cartoon series is included in this movie... even the "Never argue with the Narrator" line that shows up in Jay Ward's cartoons. See more »

Goofs

The Golden Gate bridge is plainly in the background of the Ursula's balcony scene, but George, who should have seen it, is suprised later to see "the biggest rope bridge George has ever seen" (the Bay Bridge; while larger than the Golden Gate, it's not enough larger to provoke that kind of reaction from someone who's seen the Golden Gate).

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: 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.

Crazy Credits

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 »

Laugh of the Jungle
4 May 2000 | by (Jungle West, Indonesia) – See all my reviews

Brilliant smashing comedy movie! The characters are original and fun. As if you're seeing a big family in a movie, everyone's interacting perfectly.

The animals are definitely the best. The ape, especially the elephant. Very funny and spectacular!

Just watch it with the whole family. It's really fun. I promise.
