George of the Jungle

The title segment, George of the Jungle, was a spoof of the popular Tarzan story. The title character, George (voiced by Bill Scott), was a dim-witted but big-hearted "ape man" who lived in the jungle. He is called upon each episode to save its inhabitants from various threats. He is famous for not looking where he is swinging and thus slamming face-first into trees or other obstacles. George's love interest is Ursula (voiced by June Foray), whom George refers to as "Fella." He has an ape for a friend, appropriately named Ape (voiced by Paul Frees), who is far more intelligent than George. Then there is Shep, George's pet elephant who acts like a lap dog, or as George calls him, "great big peanut-luvin' poochie." Also of note is the Tooky Tooky (or Tookie Tookie) bird famous for his call: "ah ah ee ee tooky tooky". James H. Pierce and Joan Burroughs Pierce starred in the 1932-34 Tarzan radio series 1964 Edition of Tarzan of the Apes Tarzan, a fictional character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, first appeared in the 1912 novel Tarzan of the Apes, and then in twenty-three sequels. ...

George is supported by his playmate/love interest Ursula (voiced by June Foray), his sapient gorilla friend Ape (Paul Frees), who is more intelligent than George (and sounds remarkably like Ronald Colman); and his pet elephant, Shep, who acts more like a lap dog, or, as George calls him, "great big peanut-luvin poochie".

GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE (547 words)
GEORGE is a silly, love story both children and adults can enjoy, though for vastly different reasons.
Fraser brings the lovable and naive George endearingly to life with a newly buff bod wrapped in nothing but a loin cloth that is a site to behold.
Using George's ignorance of the ways of man against him, he manages to get Ursala to return to the real world without her jungle love.
