Liberia: The Legend of Tarzan
This beautifully illustrated sheetlet of nine stamps issued by Liberia to celebrate the Legend of Tarzan. Featured on the nine stamps are birds & animals, a snake, monkey, and butterfly. The background shows Tarzan as a boy with a small paragraph explaining the story.
Collector's Note:
In the 1935 "Restless Knights" short the Stooges were not really trying to do a Tarzan skit, but rather were doing a wrestling exhibition for a queen. However, there was a Stooge short done in 1937 where Tarzan was mentioned specifically. In "The Sitter Downers" Moe and Larry use dynamite to blow cement off Curley's feet. Curley lands in a tree. His wife, Dorabell, tells him, "Come down outa there Tarzan." and proceeds to knock him out of the tree with a 2x4.
