George of the Jungle returns in 2007

george of the jungleA new cartoon version of George of the Jungle based on the movie version starring Brendan Fraser and not on the original Jay Ward cartoon is currently in production with a launch date set for Fall of 2007. I hate to admit it, but George of the Jungle was before my time and I never saw a single episode of it, though I am a big fan of Ward so I'm sure I would have loved it. While the cartoon won't be based on the original, the look of the characters themselves will be based on Ward's designs. The Cartoon Network series, like a lot of cartoons these days, will be done in Flash.

I remember George of the Jungle from my childhood (on a bill with Super Chicken and Tom Slick), and I can tell you that that image of George you're using doesn't look like the Jay Ward character at all.

I hate that this is happening.

I remember GOTJ from when I was a kid, although it wasn't one of my favorites (the theme song was probably the highlight). It was kind of a one-joke cartoon from what I recall. I'll be curious to see what Cartoon Network does with it.
