A parade of Tarzan & Jane Wannabes
startle the Dum-Dum assemblage with
The Victory Cry of Tarzan's Mangani
The three very popular -- and knowledgeable -- judges:
Linda Burroughs: widow of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Grandson Danton
Dejah Burroughs: Edgar Rice Burroughs' Great-Granddaughter
Llana Jane Burroughs: Edgar Rice Burroughs' Great-Granddaughter
The yell has always been part of their lives since Danton had mastered it so well.
He even did all the yells on the popular animated Tarzan TV series
As each of the contestants give their version of the yell
the audience is captivated.
Watch their reactions.
Joan "J the V" Bledig gives a humorous call to bring the Ape Man down from his jungle perch.
He was late for his afternoon vittles.
Even Dejah and Peggy make guest appearances with crowd-pleasing yells.
Before they give their final verdict, the judges ask all the contestants to gather
to shake the rafters with a mass call.
The judges huddle while the audience awaits the results.
The judges announce the second place winner - who happens to be the oldest contestant.
. . . and the winner is Steve Rychlec
The man with the perfect Tarzan yell . . . and muscles.
Joan Bledig -- the Jane winner -- holds the mic while Steve gives a triumphant Victory Cry.
