Tarzan and his jungle are visited by former President Teddy Roosevelt and, while on the hunt for animal specimens to study (which of course Tarzan heavily disapproves of), both are kidnapped by conspirators. In the process of escape, Tarzan teaches the President the importance of respecting nature, and he gains a new appreciation for it by the time he leaves, promising to bring that lesson home to America.Read More
Tarzan and Jane attend a Waziri wedding (Basuli and his betrothed). Jane is startled at the Waziri custom for the groom to complete a challenge before he is alowed to wed, and she accidentally causes an upset between Basuli's fiance Naoh and Kewazi, the chief. Meanwhile, Tarzan accompanies Basuli on his quest to find an eagle's feather (from a specific eagle), but a lot of accidents happen along the way.

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
