Meanwhile Jane is able to identify Velociraptor, a dinosaur genus described in 1923. It's the easiest to assume that the series {{retcon}}ned the original movie's time period to the 1910-s.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: Since the show is set in the jungle, it's hardly surprising that many of the human characters go barefoot. While Tarzan never wore shoes in the first place (aside from whenever he wore the suit his human father left behind), Jane never wears shoes anymore either in the series, having adapted to the jungle setting. Professor Porter still mostly wears his original English clothes.
