Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle is an animated television series produced by Filmation Associates for CBS. Thirty-six episodes were produced between 1976 and 1979, and aired on Saturday mornings from 1976 through 1981.

The series remains unreleased on home video, despite most of the Filmation catalog being available. The legal rights to the series presumably still belong to Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. but may be restricted by ERB Inc's contracts with The Walt Disney Company.

Opening narrationEdit

The Jungle; here I was born; and here my parents died when I was but an infant. I would have soon perished too, had I not been found by a kindly she-ape named Kala, who adopted me as her own and taught me the ways of the wild. I learned quickly, and grew stronger each day, and now I share the friendship and trust of all jungle animals.

The jungle is filled with beauty, and danger; and lost cities filled with good, and evil.

This is my domain, and I protect those who come here; for I am Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle.
