My Introduction to Tarzan
22 January 2002 | by (Kansas City, MO, USA) – See all my reviews

This was my first exposure to Tarzan, along with the old Johnny Weismuller movies, although I remember being confused at the differences between the two versions. I preferred my Tarzan `smart,' meaning speaking perfect English, but I always wondered why the cartoon Tarzan didn't carry a knife (thanks, network censors!) But otherwise it was perfect, the kind of show that made me go out in the backyard and do Tarzan yells until I was hoarse. It also made me seek out the Tarzan novels in my school library, and made me a fan of one of fiction's great heroes.

I really wish someone would show this series again (Cartoon Network, I'm looking at you!) It had adventure, excitement, fine animation, and it made an excellent introduction to the Tarzan legend. I hope I get to see it again someday.
