George was a dimwitted, clumsier version of Tarzan, who, despite the warning in the catchy opening theme to "watch out for that tree," would inevitably eat bark as he splatted into trunk after trunk. But his awkwardness was only one of life's daily difficulties for the hunky, loin-clothed ape man. George would often forget that his curvaceous wife Ursula (voiced by Jay Ward staple June Foray) was a woman, and that his pet Shep was an elephant, not "a big, gray, peanut-eating dog." Luckily, George was often helped out by his more-human-than-ape friend, the erudite Ape.
