Tarzan TV series where the He-Man had to have had a blow dryer

This series is re-running on some channel lately. What always catches my attention is Tarzan’s hair. It looks like he just walked out of a Manhattan hair stylist. Hair is always 1990’s perfect cool.  The only time it looks like he really is a Tarzan is when he jumps in a river and that lion’s mane gets wet.  Notice the producing countries, that may be a clue as to why this series was so bad.


Tarzán was a French-Canadian-Mexican television series that aired in syndication from 1991–94. In this version of the show, Tarzan (Wolf Larson) was portrayed as a blond environmentalist, with Jane (Lydie Denier) turned into a French ecologist. The series aired in syndication in the United States.

Ron Ely, famous for playing Tarzan in the original series, played a character named Gorden Shaw in the first season episode “Tarzan the Hunted”.

Jane has a professionally manipulated doo going as well.
