  • Good Tarzan bondage scene

    7.5
    This episode has one of the better bondage scenes from the old 1970's Tarzan cartoon. The Bolmangani (evil gorilla men) have Tarzan captured with ropes around his hands, arms, and feet, and placed on the conveyor belt to be killed.

    The first season of the Tarzan cartoon featured bondage and captures in nearly half of the episodes. Later seasons featured less bondage, but often they used clips from earlier episodes (like this one) for flashbacks, stock footage, etc.

  • Once one accepts the premise of talking gorilla men, one is left with a great story about uniting to stand up to bullies with an excellent scene of Tarzan in peril. Grade: A-moreless

    ** SPOILER ALERT **



    Plot - The episode starts with Tarzan raising a golden orphaned lion cub to adulthood. While investigating the disappearance of a tribe of monkeys, Tarzan encounters a hanging village of talking monkey people who are being enslaved by talking gorilla men. Soon after entering the gorilla city, Tarzan is captured, tied up, brought before their emperor, and placed on a conveyor belt, which would drop him out of a very high window onto a pile of rocks far below it. A monkey boy steals a spear and attempts to free Tarzan, the golden lion drops in to stop a trio of gorilla men from chasing the boy, and Tarzan breaks his bonds, frees the monkeys, and helps the monkey people drive out the gorilla men.



    Once one accepts the premise of talking gorilla men, one is left with a good story about uniting to stand up to bullies with an excellent scene of Tarzan in peril.



    The gorilla emperor is an excellent villain, enslaving monkeys and monkey people and having Tarzan tied up and placed on a conveyor belt to be dropped out of a very high window.



    Defeating the gorilla men, who are enslaving monkeys and monkey people and having Tarzan tied up and placed on a conveyor belt leading to a perilous drop, provides excellent tension.



    Tarzan in trouble - Betrayed by the cry of his monkey-boy companion, in response to his mother's scream, Tarzan is captured, with one gorilla man holding each arm. Tarzan is brought before the gorilla emperor with his hands tied behind his back. Our hero is then placed on a conveyor belt, with ropes around his arms and chest, his ankles, and his hands still tied behind his back, to be dropped out of a very high window onto a pile of rocks far below it.



    Grade - A-

    • Tarzan: Your people far outnumber the Bolmangani. Why have you not stopped this long ago?
      Kolni: We are too small.
      Tarzan: Hando the hornet is even smaller. But he and his tribe drove the Bolmangani away. Your people can do the same.

    • Kolni: No, Tarzan! It is useless to try!
      Kolni's mother: You will only wind up a slave like the others.
      Tarzan: You are the slaves.
      Kolni: What do you mean?
      Tarzan: You are slaves to your own fears. Even now, you are under the Bolmangani's power as surely as if you were chained to one of their ore carts. And things will never change until your people decide to change them!
