The earlier Tarzan novels are [[PublicDomainCharacter out of copyright]] in the US, but not in Europe, and TheOtherWiki suggests he's also trademarked by the author's company. Altogether, that explains why ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' only refers to him as [[CaptainErsatz "Lord Greystoke"]].

* Creator/BoDerek and Richard Harris once starred in another film titled ''Tarzan The Ape Man'' in 1981, which was a more adult look at the Tarzan mythos, focusing mostly on Jane and featuring a large supply of FanService. The film was a flop since children could not see it, male audience members hoping to see a naked Bo Derek were disappointed to see what was mostly a romance film with Tarzan playing a supporting role, and female audience members were turned off by the more blatant scenes of nudity (if they were interested in seeing a "Tarzan film" to begin with). Derek reportedly firing most of the cast and crew before filming ended did not help matters, either.

* VineSwing: Tarzan's preferred transportation method, so much that he's the TropeCodifier. Surprisingly {{Averted}} in the original books, but done in [[LostInImitation every single other appearance]].

* BarbarianLonghair: Being [[RaisedByWolves raised by apes]], [[WildChild Tarzan]] doesn't pay much attention to how his hair looks. Though in the book series, after learning about "civilized" humans through his father's old books, he cut his hair with a knife to set himself apart.

Though most adaptations after the Disney film have him keep his long hair.
