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.
