I'm really getting old if Ron Ely is an "early Tarzan". Buster Crabbe was an early one. Johnny Weissmueller was a johnny come lately. Ron Ely? Are you kidding me?

By the way, I'd really like to know where Ron Ely got his haircuts in the jungle, not to mention his dental work.

Tarzan with Ron Ely was the stupidest show in the history of television. F Troop might have been, but it suffered from the disadvantage that it was supposed to be stupid, it just couldn't measure up to Tarzan with Ron Ely.
