Tarzan of the Apes is not an a messed up book. Furthermore, only two books, Tarzan of the Apes and The Return of Tarzan, are written by Burroughs. The rest are written by a random author who some how came to own the rights to Burroughs books. The movies are not at all similar to the books. Taking into account all of the movies. Though Disney’s animation does touch the surface it is still not close to the book except for the names and relations. Which in are in some cases our mixed. For example Clayton plays a terrible hunter. While in the book Clayton is Tarzan’s cousin and an English Lord.  Great video though a lot of people don’t realize it’s a book.

In the movie frozen Elsa's and Anna's parents left on a ship and never came back. well would if there parents were Tarzans parents sence they were on a ship and they crashed on to a island so that means Tarzan is Elsa's and Anna's brother.

First, stop pronouncing Tarzan in American accent. Learn how to pronounce in African accent you stupid ass. I'm American too but whenever you are talking about foreign people's names and places you better pronounce in their accent

The cannibalistic behavior wasn’t put in the movie because it’s racist, also portrayed in Moby Dick. You know who is known to eat people? The dutch, check out the festival of chocolate hands. Dracula also, you it’s weird how europeans pan off their disgusting behavior on other races. Like accusing Africans of being racist 😂😂😂

I think I prefer The Legend of Tarzan starring Alexander Skarsgard because it's closest to the original, and there wasn't any racism. The story you shared of Tarzan is very similar to the new movie of Tarzan, but also slightly different.

I love listening to your version of the origins of stories. I just found your channel a couple of weeks ago, and have been playing catch up as often as I can. I personally prefer the Tarzan movie starring Alexander Skarsgard, I like the eye candy..I mean that version. I grew up watching Ron Ely playing Tarzan on Saturdays, and always enjoyed the upright moral messages.

Would u ever do videos on the theory on how Disney movies are connected like this and the little mermaid w the ship and then the dining set that's in this that matches chip and the others from beauty and the beast... I know I'm missing one. Or the pixar timeline theory by Disney I believe... In a toy story 4 magazine I read... Your videos rock. Keep it going. Or Even Easter eggs if that would be something you could do.

Everyone is making comments about the racism expressed in the book but the book was written some time ago when such attitudes were the accepted norms. I'm not saying that was right but Burroughs was a writer not a civil rights activist. Its interesting to note that we seldom hear criticism about Abraham Lincoln for the racist remarks he made in his speeches just because he did free the slaves but not because he set out to do so but because the realities of his situation forced him to do so.

Wait hold up. If the Tarzan was born in the jungle and the family had very little belongings, how did they have a picture with them and their baby together. Like think about it. This was 1912 right so they wouldn’t just have a Polaroid camera just lying around, they had just barley not even like 30 years prior made the very first camera in history.

I read the child version of Tarzan when I was little. As far as I remember, Tarzan was able to prove that he is the heir to the Clayton fortune. Behind the family photo of Tarzan, there was a baby hand print. They matched it it with Tarzan's fingerprint and it was a perfect match.

Is there seriously an entire generation where most people think Tarzan was created by Disney? Come on, Tarzan is an American classic. My family has an entire set of the original 9 book series. That goes from the first book up through "Tarzan And The Golden Lion" Starting with "Ant Men" the books had a distinctly different feel. It is part of the "original series" but I think Burroughs original Tarzan story ran out at Golden Lion. I think the series was so popular he just expanded the concept and continued. He kinda ended up going to far in my opinion but many people also enjoyed his later books. Anyways, I am kinda shocked that in just a few years so many younger people are unaware of a series that was wildly popular.

I agree, I think that I one of the luckiest people of the new generation to have discovered Tarzan. I actually read only the first 3 books and some comic books, but I plan to read the entire ERB series. Tarzan itself as a character is better than superheroes nowadays, and I really dislike the fact that some people call him "the jungle Batman", when Superman's author said that Tarzan and John Carter inspired him to create the Man of Steel, so....

I still think Tarzan is massively racist, but then again this book was made during the height of African colonialism, slavery was still a thing in the states for the next five years.

Among the 1700+ comments someone might have mentioned already, but in the books, the great apes (who raised Tarzan) and the gorillas are not the same species, in fact they are mortal enemies. The gorillas are referred to as "Bolgani".
