Storyline

George is the king of the jungle and protector of all who live there. George may be dim-witted. He may be clumsy. But what do you expect from someone who swings into trees habitually? Besides, he still manages to save the jungle and it's inhabitants from the numerous threats that besiege them. George is aided by his friend, an ape named Ape, Ursula, and his pet dog/elephant Shep. Other cartoons with George of the Jungle include Tom Slick, a gallant race car driver and Super Chicken, a fowl super hero who dips into the Super Sauce. Written by Brian D. Switzer

Three Shows For the Price of One!
14 November 2000 | by briankistlerSee all my reviews

Super Chicken was so WICKEDLY funny.....even HILARIOUS....the way it took all those super heroes, like Superman, Aquaman, etc., and brought them DOWN.....quite a few notches!!.....and completely destroyed their dignity. It was equally hilarious to see that puny, masked chicken, with an assistant side-kick, who was ten times bigger than he......that huge, goofy, lion, Fred, who talked just like Ed Wynne from MARY POPPINS (Fred Wynne sang that song, I LOVE TO LAUGH, in that movie).

Tom Slick was about a lot more than just a race car star. There was a whole assortment of villains, and even monsters, whom he raced against (or was confronted with)......vampires, sea monsters......you name it!.......whatever you would least expect could be in a story, about Tom Slick, they were there!!

George of the Jungle, though the starring show of the series, was not my very favorite of the three shows, but, so much of America loves George, (as evidenced by the release of that movie, just a few years ago), that pay me no mind, with that comment.

I will say that the concept of "taking on" Tarzan, like that, was incredibly creative and innovative, in a cartoon. I also truly loved the theme song, and all the footage that accompanied it (including the real life car, that explodes into flames!). I must say that it was a happy day, for me, when I discovered this late 60s show!
