In the late Eighteen Eighties off the coast of Africa, a younger couple and their toddler son escape a burning ship, ending up on land near uncharted rainforests. The Man and Woman (Tarzan's organic mother and father Earl & Lady Greystone) are killed by a savage feminine leopard named Sabor. Kala, a gorilla who recently lost her personal child to Sabor, hears the cries of the orphaned infant and finds him within the ruined treehouse. Kala is attacked by Sabor, who desires to kill and eat the baby, however, Kala manages to get Sabor tangled within the ropes holding the derelict rowboat, and he or she and the child escape.
Tarzan means in mangani "white skin", but his actual name is John Clayton the third, Lord Greystoke. Having survived in the jungle since his early childhood, Tarzan has shown bodily skills superior to those of the athletes of the civilized world. He additionally has superior intelligence and he learns the English language without the assistance of anybody utilizing picture books taken by his mother and father.
