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.
Mike Henry, who had just filmed several big-screen adventures as Tarzan, was to have also played the lead on this show, but backed out. Ron Ely, who took his place, was originally to have performed as a Tarzan impostor in a proposed episode of this show.
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.
