However, probably the most famous incarnation of ''Jungle Jim'' to modern audiences is the series of 16 ''Jungle Jim'' films made by ColumbiaPictures between 1948 and 1955, starring Creator/JohnnyWeissmuller (a former big-screen {{Tarzan}}) as Jim. Weissmuller also starred as Jim in the single-season TV series that ran in 1955-56. He had a comicbook revival in 2015 as part of the King/Dynamite series of miniseries. Fittingly, his miniseries sees him relocated to [[ComicStrip/FlashGordon Arboria]] by earlier events in the series.

The comic's early years generally featured stories revolving around pirates, slave traders and other common jungle invaders. As WorldWarII approached, ''Jungle Jim'', like many other American comics, developed a wartime theme, in which Jim fought the Japanese, and it moved from its position as a topper strip to its own independent Sunday page. The strip ended in 1954.

Artist Alex Raymond and writer Don Moore created the original strip as a topper to run above Raymond's ''FlashGordon''. ''Jungle Jim'' and ''Flash Gordon'' were launched simultaneously on January 7, 1934. Aside from Jim Bradley, characters included the large, strong native Kolu, and Lille [=DeVrille=], a FemmeFatale introduced two years into the strip's run.
