Dana Olsen's screenplay began as a spec script titled "Gorilla Boy" (Olsen's nickname for his son). While shopping the screenplay to the studios, he intentionally avoided Disney because he knew they had the film rights to George of the Jungle, and figured they wouldn't be interested in another Tarzan-type spoof. As it turned out, Disney didn't have a script for the movie and happily looked at (and bought) Olsen's story. See more »
When Ursula swings on the vine to help George she slams into a tree. On the way back she is wearing a vest. When George reaches up to catch her she has no vest. When he is holding her in his arms the vest appears again. See more »
Deep in the heart of Africa is a place no man has ever entered. The place that belongs to the lion, the elephant and the ape. A place known as the Bukuvu. Travellers flying overhead can only glimpse at its many marvels, its sparkling rivers, its lush veldts, its billowy cloud formations and its hidden mountains. Never fear, my friends. All was not lost. Scraped and boo-booed, they searched high and low, but they never recovered their most precious cargo.

At the end of the credits, Ape says "Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the king of the jungle". You then hear George yell, followed by a loud thud. See more »
How many times can you laugh at George swinging into a tree? Every single time!! I fell out of my chair laughing the first time I saw this movie and every time since. Anyone who has not seen this movie should immediately endeavor to do so. The whole movie is flawlessly put together to provide sensational entertainment for anyone with the merest hint of a sense of humour.
