“This is my domain, and I protect those who come here; for I am Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle!”
Filmation’s Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle originally aired Saturday mornings on CBS, beginning in September of 1976. 36 half-hour episodes were produced from the series debut through 1979.
The cartoon stuck somewhat closely to author Edgar Rice Burroughs’ version of the famed character and Tarzan (voiced by Robert Ridgely) was portrayed as a well-spoken, intelligent individual. The loin-clothed hero guarded over the jungle, along with his monkey sidekick, N’kima and assorted lion, gorilla and elephant pals.
