Trivia

In the course of the first season's shooting, Ron Ely (Tarzan), who insisted on performing his own stunts, sustained seventeen different injuries. These included: singeing his arms and legs running through a burning village, being bitten on the forehead by a "tame" lion (in a later fight with the same lion, he was bitten on the lower left thigh), falling down a hill and ripping the skin off the tops of his feet, falling twenty-five feet (7.6 meters) off of a vine and separating his shoulder, falling off of another vine and breaking his other shoulder, fracturing three ribs, and spraining both wrists.

Alternate Versions

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. See more »

Clean cut Tarzan
19 August 2018 | by stephenrusellSee all my reviews

Whole show is clean cut IE the safaris coming into the jungle, never wearing jeans etc. Can tell the indoor sets from Mexico wilds alone. Otherwise routine TV fare, Very G rated. Even Tarzan is clean vs roughened by the jungle. In real life everyone would look gritty, dirty, etc esp Tarzan. Or hed look worn by the heat,humidity, etc. Classic for the ages. & who wears suits into the jungle? saw similar on Man from UNCLE episode. Very lame. Arms were always std Safari fare, never any semi autos, etc from WW2 era since show occured Today ( in 60s). OK plots. 2 bad didnt have Tarzan vs Commies seeking some ore to mine & Tarzan comes to rescue.
