A sadvertising reader brought this interesting Tarzan Toy to attention. It's a real toy from Mattel, marketed a circa 1998ish.
It's "Rad Repeatin' Tarzan!"
And from judging the video, we're enlightened as to the meaning behind Tarzan's mighty cry...and why Tarzan prefers to spend so much time alone in the jungle.
If I were in the Focus Group (of course this product went through rigorous consumer testing before launching, right?), I'd have gone with "Vine Swingin' Tarzan" instead of "Rad Repeatin'" - all that "Repeatin'" and he'll be blind in no time!
