(NBC, September 9-December 2, 1978)
Created by Doug Wildey, Jana of the Jungle was a pastiche of Tarzan with a healthy dose of Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. In fact, it began life as a Sheena show with the assumption that the character was in the public domain. However, shortly after Hanna-Barbera Productions had sold the concept to NBC, Sheena’s rights holders came forward with a hefty price tag. Wildey quicky reworked his concept into the series that would make it to air.
