Swing from the rafters
The story of Tarzan takes place in the 1888 off the coast of Africa. A family escapes a burning ship and arrives in the wilderness of Africa, building themselves a treehouse. At the same time, a gorilla couple lose their son. While they are moving, they hear the cries of a baby and discover that the parents of the human family are dead. With the feeling of loss from their own son, the gorilla mother takes the human baby in as their own child. The child is named Tarzan, but the father does not accept it.
Why can't we be friends?
Time passes and Tarzan grows. He is able to earn the respect of his father by killing the leopard who killed both his parents and the child of his adopted mother and father. But all of a sudden there is gun fire heard; humans have come to this land. Tarzan goes to explore and finds three invaders: Professor Porter, his daughter Jane, and a hunter guide Clayton. Tarzan is able to save Jane from some baboons and tried to communicate with her. There is conflict between the gorillas and the humans. Tarzan does not understand why that is so, as he sees the good in both. But Tarzan returns to the human camp to learn more about the people who look like him. He is ready to leave when the humans leave, but again conflict erupts between the two. In the end, Tarzan must decide whether he should stay or go back to the human world where his parents are from.
