Storyline

An infant girl is orphaned in the Amazon rain forest and is raised by the native chief, Montaro. As she grows up, she becomes a lithe maiden perfectly at home in the jungle, armed only with a special neckband she can use as a throwing weapon that her jaguar companion, Ghost, is trained to retrieve. Together, with Montaro, who is armed with the mystic Staff of Power, they now search for her father and helping people along the way against the dangers of the jungle and its enemies Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@home.com>

A very underrated series
28 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

During the early 80s, Jana aired on Cartoon Express on the USA Network, and having been born in 1978, and thus too young to have seen the series when it originally aired, Cartoon Express is how I came to see this excellent series. It is one of the many cartoons that I watched as a kid that I now wish I could see again, but at this time, it doesn't exist in either VHS or DVD format. This show is about a young woman who was shipwrecked along with her father in the jungles of South America. A Native American warrior named Montaro rescued Jana from drowning, but her father was not found. Now grown up, Jana searches each episode for her father. This was a great show for what it was, and it's a sad thing that Cartoon Network has never picked Jana up to air either on CN itself or on Boomerang. I only hope they do one day, so I can once again experienced this piece of my childhood.
