Not bad at all, in fact surprisingly good- should have lasted longer though
22 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I wasn't sure whether this series would be good. I loved the film Tarzan, and I feared this series would be a disgrace. What a surprise! This series is surprisingly good, it isn't as good as the film, but it does really well in terms of character relationships and stories especially.

I do agree that this series should have lasted longer, one season is not enough for a TV series in my opinion, and the series consequently didn't end as well as it could have done. It left room for more but nothing else happened. The animation isn't as gorgeous as in the film, but it is good and colourful, while the music is well composed, the writing is humorous and strong, the voice acting expressive and the story lines engaging with good action. The characters are also fine, Tarzan is charismatic enough, Jane is still the funny and beautiful woman I fell in love with and Terk and Tantor are also funny. The funniest character though is Professor Porter, a lot of the time he is hilarious, and I liked the slimy trade operator too, while there are some cool new characters as well, too many to mention in fact but I especially loved Queen La and the Leopard men.

Overall, a terrific show that should have lasted longer. Don't expect it to be quite the same as the film, just expect a fun show that sticks close to the stories, and you're in for a good time. 9/10 Bethany Cox
