Tarzan (Lord Greystoke), already well educated and fed up with civilization, returns to the jungle and, more or less assisted by chimpanzee Cheetah and orphan boy Jai, wages war against poachers and other bad guys.
Unlike numerous cinematic film adaptations, Tarzan's mate Jane is entirely absent in this production. The decision of omitting this female character was Sy Weintraub 's idea. He replaced the adoptive son, Boy with a young orphaned boy named Jai.
The five "Tarzan" features starring Ron Ely as the ape-man are actually re-edited episodes of this series, in most cases using two-part segments so as to have one cohesive storyline per film.
