Ape - Cultured,
well-mannered brown ape companion of clumsy Tarzan type on the cartoon series
GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE/ABC/1967-70.
The cartoon's title theme summarizes George and Ape's
"When he gets in a scrape/he'll make his escape/with the help of
his friend/an ape named Ape."
Ape speaks like the suave 1930s British film actor
Ronald Colman (celebrity voice provided by Paul Frees). When Ape needs to send a
message through the jungle he beats on his belly (his "tum-tum tom-tom").
John Cleese provided the voice of "an ape named 'Ape' " in the live-action motion
picture adaptation of the cartoon series George of the Jungle (1997) and the
video sequel George of the Jungle 2 (2003).
