The character Cheeta-eh orginated from Starzan.
Mentioned in the movie.
Rene shouted Chitae. It's his famous chant from the Starzan comedy.
This movie basically spoof Hollywood's Tarzan. Joey de Leon should have titled it as Tarzan but due to some copyright problem they made it as Starzan, still with character Jean as Jane (his love interest), and Chita became a human aide named Chita-eh.
