“Who are these people, and why are they talking
“It’s that author, Robin Maxwell,
the illustrator Joe Jusko,
Jim Sullos - president of the Edgar Rice
another brilliant Tarzan artist, Thomas Yeates,
Scott Tracy Griffin, who’s written the
Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration
coffee table book.
They’re all walking encyclopedias about us.”
“`The Naked Truth About Tarzan and Jane” - that’s
the name of the panel?!”
“Why so shocked? We never wear clothes.”
“I don’t like the looks of this. Who are
“Enid Markey and Elmo Lincoln.
They were the first onscreen Tarzan and Jane...a
silent film in 1918.”
“I don’t think so. Look at his hair.
Look at her dress.”
“Her mother made that dress.”
“Next slide, please!” Now!”

“That’s better. Hey look, babe, you haven’t
got on any underwear.”
“After the Hollywood censors got a look at this
in the first two Weissmuller-O’Sullivan
movies, they had a fit.”
“They weren’t too happy about the nude underwater
'Tarzan and His Mate' either. Pretty risque
“Too true. But didn’t we have fun?”
“Whoa! Okay, okay...Jane, I did not have
sex with that woman.”
“La of Opar? Hell no. She’s trying
to kill me!”
“Look, right there. See the tears?
I just told her I only had eyes for you.”
“I recognize this gal.
In ERB’s novel Tarzan and the Lion Man
a mad scientist steals Henry VIII’s genes
and implants them in a family of apes.
I think that’s Anne Boleyn in the vines....I
know, I know, it sounds crazy.
You’ll have to take it up with Ed.”
“Oh look here, darling! Our favorite vacation
Thomas Yeates really captures the mood, doesn’t
“I prefered that week in Pal-U-Don.
We were much more relexed.
Remember? They let us bring Tantor.”
“I like this one of you. You look like
you could rip the head off a Mangani bull.”
“And here you are, actually doing it!”
“Love the ripped blouse. Joe Jusko’s the
king of pointy bras.”
“This is one of my favorites of us and Sheeta.
Are you ripped!”
“Can we go back down the to the Exhibit Hall?
I think I saw the blonde Targaryen princess from
`Game of Thrones’
......or we could just get a pretzel dog.”
