Trivia

The show had an interesting run in the United States. Originally, only the first season was aired. When the series Tarzan: The Epic Adventures (1996) was canceled mid-run, the networks aired episodes from the second and third seasons of this series in its place, strung together into one hour blocks.

Although the program is set in Africa, the elephant portraying Tantor is clearly an Asian elephant, having considerably smaller ears than her African counterparts. See more »

Roger: The rent's cheap?
Dan: Oh, yeah. I knew it was something.

Goofy, corny fun...
3 September 2003 | by monalisa_777See all my reviews

Good TV for a slow Saturday afternoon. I was a fan of this show during its original run in the US. Recently I found a video of old episodes and decided to watch my childhood favorite with adult eyes.

To be sure, the writing's not great. For example, there's an episode where Jane, temporarily blinded by an injury, says to Tarzan, "I'm so happy to see you!" SEE him? Umm...she's blind. Bad choice of words on the writer's part. And just about every episode ends with Cheetah the monkey doing something funny and everyone laughing.

So technically speaking, it's not the greatest. But it's a lot of fun. The dialogue, silly as it was, made me laugh out loud a few times, and I was never bored. If nothing else, watch it for Wolf Larson, who's absolutely gorgeous, or for the late Sean Roberge, who turns in a respectable performance as Tarzan's skinny sidekick Roger.
