Trivia: Tarzan
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
  • The Other Darrin: Michael T. Weiss replaced Tony Goldwyn as the voice of Tarzan in the TV series. Alex D Linz is his younger voice for the prequel.
    • Susanne Blakeslee replaced Glenn Close as the voice of Kala in most of her later appearances.
    • Olivia D'Abo replaced Minnie Driver as the voice of Jane in the TV series.
    • Jeff Bennett replaced Nigel Hawthorne as the voice of Professor Porter in the TV series.
    • Several other actresses, such as April Winchell and Audrey Wasilewski, replaced Rosie O'Donnell as the voice of Terk in most of her later appearances.
    • Jim Cummings replaced Wayne Knight as the voice of Tantor in most of his later appearances.
  • Relationship Voice Actor: In the Japanese dub, basically Raoh is married with Mamiya, rather than Yuria instead, while Souther wants to kill both of them.
  • Same Language Dub: A weird case. According to BRIAN BLESSED, although Tony Goldwyn provided the voice for Tarzan in the theatrical animated Tarzan film, Brian provided Tarzan's iconic yodel.
  • Science Marches On: The main reason Disney changed the Mangani to gorillas is because of this: Gorillas have been found to be the Gentle Giants of the jungle.
  • Throw It In: The scene where Jane was ranting about what happened to her, her father and Clayton, after being rescued from the baboons? That whole thing was improvised by her voice actor, Minnie Driver.
    • Likewise much of Professor Porter's reaction to her ranting was improvised along with other lines such as "Oh, just like Aunt Isabelle" when Jane describes how Tarzan walks.
