When the Professor's rival, Samuel T. Philander, visits Africa, he must come up with something spectacular to become famous on before Philander. That's when Tarzan tells them about Pellucidar, an underground world where dinosaurs live. But Philander follows them there and takes pictures.

The Professor learns about a spiritual silver ape that, supposedly, cures the injured of the jungle. Not believing this is a spiritual creature, he plans to study it more. But when Philander steals his notes and finds out about the ape, he plans to capture it.Read More
In this episode, Philander blames all of his problems on Archimedes Porter and his ""missing link"" son-in-law, Tarzan. Then Philander even knocks his experiment table over and loses...Einstein's Theory of Relativity?
Nonetheless, two cockney thugs barge in, trying to collect their dues from Philander who obviously doesn't have the money. Philander then tries to convince the bounders that Tarzan is a missing link, and he persuades them to follow him into the jungle.
Meanwhile, Archimedes is feeling rather distraught over his problems ""fitting-in"" in the jungle, so he dons a loincloth and tries to at like Tarzan.
Tarzan and Jane though decide to go berry picking with Tantor and Terk instead. This then leads to an idyllic scene where Tarzan rests his head on Jane's lap, while they share berries. (Very ""B. Lagoon,"" I think. lol ;)

Ed then tracks down Philander in a run-down apartment building/flophouse, and Philander goes on to tell of his adventures in Africa, meeting Tarzan, exploring Pellucidar, being embarrassed by the photos of the baby baboon, etc. (I'm surprised though that he didn't go on to talk about how he'd captured Maghani, the Silver ape, and almost threw Tarzan overboard after he'd been injured.) Anyway, Ed finds Philander's story of Pellucidar a bit too unbelievable so he leaves. But a waitress convinces him to at least ""check it out"". After all, Philander's photo features a real guy in a real loincloth surrounded by real apes, doesn't it?
Ed proceeds to sail to Africa, where he meets up with Hugo and Hooft, who recall their own adventures with Tarzan, escaping the wild animals and theirRead More
