|“||Deep in the African Jungle, lives a mysterious figure. His name is legendary. His strength is remarkable. And his theme song... Is pretty good, too!||„|
|~ Narrator from the teaser trailer of the Disney's George of the Jungle movie|
|“||George, George, George of the Jungle
Strong as he can be
(Yell) Watch out for that tree! (Ooh!)
George, George, George of the Jungle
Lives a life that's free
(Yell) Watch out for that tree!
When he gets in a scrape,
He makes his escape
With the help of his friend,
An ape named Ape.
Then away he'll schlep on his elephant Shep
While Fella and Ursula stay in step...
With George, George, George of the Jungle
Friend to you and me.
(yell) Watch out for that tree!
Watch out for that... ( yell ... "Oooh!") tree!
George, George, George of the Jungle,
Friend to you and me!

George of the Jungle, also known simply as George, is the heroic titular protagonist of all George of the Jungle media. He is a dimwitted parody of Tarzan, as normally, both feral men wear only loincloths. In the 1967 TV series, he was voiced by the late Bill Scott. Brendan Fraser portrayed him in the 1997 live-action film, but because he declined to reprise the role in its sequel due to playing D.J. Drake in Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Christopher Showerman did the portrayal instead. Whereas, in the 2007 animated series, Lee Tockar did his voice.
George is king of the jungle, who was lost in the African wilderness as a baby following a plane crash.
George survived a plane crash in the heart of Africa, but was tragically lost. Here, he grows into a man who rules the jungle. An heiress named Ursula Stanhope explores the area with her snooty fiance, Lyle, who abandons her when a lion attacks them. George swoops in to save Ursula, and takes care of her while Lyle and a couple of poachers (in search of the mythical "White Ape", which is George) try to find her. George and Ursula eventually fall in love with each other, and they go back to San Francisco for the requisite plot. George and Ursula have to deal with the treacherous Lyle and Ursula's disapproving, meddling mother in order to stay together and live happily ever after.
