|Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle
Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle made its debut in the fall of 1976. Based largely on the work of
comics artist Burne Hogarth, TLOTJ featured impressive animation which was far above
the average norm. Tarzan's body movements were heavily rotoscoped, and the jungle
tapestry had realism and depth, a rarity in television animation up to this point. The
animation had a very "full" look to it. The background music had an exotic, moody flavor,
and the production overall had a lush, decadent look and feel.
Tarzan's face was also more expressive than the average animated television character,
simplistic dots had generally still been the norm in television animation up until this point.
Robert Ridgely, a Filmation veteran, provided an excellent voice of Tarzan. He would be the
voice of main characters for arguably three of the best animated adventure series of the
era, the other two being Filmation's own (The New Adventures of)
Flash Gordon and Ruby Spears' Thundarr the Barbarian.
In this author's opinion, TLOTJ remains one of the finest cartoons ever
produced for the small screen.
Tarzan, paired with a variety of other super heroes would continue on for a very succesful
run. In the fall 1977, he was paired with the New Adventure of Batman as the shows were
fused into the Batman/Tarzan Adventure Hour. The following season several Filmation
original heroes were added to form the hour and a half action extravaganza Tarzan and the
Super 7. In 1980, Tarzan and the Super 7 components parted company, as the latter was
repackaged for NBC as Batman and the Super 7, while Tarzan was combined with
Filmation's animated Lone Ranger to form the Tarzan/Lone Ranger Adventure Hour.
