Literary Toons: Tarzan and the Golden Lion (1976)

From season 1 of Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle comes a slightly altered adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan & the Golden Lion, which explains the origin of the great golden lion, Jadbalja, who was raised & trained by Tarzan himself (Robert Ridgely). Burroughs' original story also included Tarzan's wife, Jane, who would not appear in the cartoon until the final season, and son Korak, who Filmation never used at all.

Rating: A-.
