Eh. The George of the Jungle cover doesn't really excite me. Quite skippable. 2 out of 5 stars.

It's decent. Weird Al's voice is very suitable for this version of the theme song. It's definitely not one of his best, but it's not that bad. <3

This song just came up on my iPod and I went all "hmm... I wonder what's the deal with this". Google search brought me right to this topic, and while I'm sad to see nobody knows (other than "it's just a straight cover"), it's comforting to know we've been all asking the same question for almost 15 years.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that it was because the record company mandated a cover, as well as a Cindi Lauper parody (and in protest he made Girls Just Wanna Have Lunch deliberately bad).
Love and peace.

What do you mean by "what's the deal with this"? I feel like I know the deal. Basically what Sappho said.

According to the backer's update for the PledgeMusic, Bill Scott did the "Tarzan-like" yell for this song.

Does anyone know if Mr. Scott did a *new* vocal recording? Or was it an archived recording from the original series?
