Tarzan of the Apes

In 1966, Ron Ely became the face of TARZAN on television and so Ballantine Books added his face to their latest reissue of the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs novel, too.


  1. I disliked the Ron Ely Tarzan series, but it was the only thing to watch on Sunday morning TV. I thought Ron Ely was too thin and the modern setting (not to mention "Jai") put me off. I was a fan of the Johnny Weismuller films and he was (and is) my standard for all Tarzans (or is that Tarzen?)

  2. The show was just OK. Better than the movie Tarzans, but by this time I had discovered Russ Manning's comic book adaptations of the ERB stories for Gold Key, and could never really accept anything less.
