Two years after a loose adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic hero hit the big screen, Disney brought Tarzan back to television with The Legend of Tarzan, which spent two seasons split between ABC & UPN, then moving to cable on and off for the next decade.
Unlike his 1976-82 Filmation series for CBS, Tarzan (Michael T. Weiss, ex-The Pretender) is joined by wife Jane (Olivia D'Abo, ex-The Wonder Years), and her father, Professor Porter (Jeff Bennett). Some of the classic Burroughs novels were adapted again for this series, and Disney cleverly snuck Burroughs himself in for an episode (voiced by Steven Weber, ex-Wings). There were plenty of guest stars as well, ranging from singer Sheena Easton to TV vets such as Neil Patrick Harris, Dave Thomas, and Stephen Root. Only 38 episodes, however, were made, well below the maximum episode limit imposed by Disney.
Following is this series' adaptation of "Tarzan and the Lost City of Opar":
