Johnny Weissmuller made him famous. Carol Burnett made it fun. But the origin of Hollywood’s iconic jungle scream is shrouded in mystery.
In 1932, in cinemas across the country, actor Johnny Weissmuller stopped high on the cliff and flew with a wild cry, which he could roughly translate as "Aah-eeh-ah-eeh-aaaaaah-eeh-ah-eeh – aaaaah! "
Krzyk Tarzana od dawna jest jednym z najbardziej rozpoznawalnych i kultowych dźwięków w Hollywood, tak samo jak „Szczerze mówiąc, moja drug, nie obchodzi mnie to” Rhetta Butlera i „Khaaaaaannnnn! Captain Kirk.
But exactly how this jungle scream came about remains a mystery. Was it really Weissmuller’s voice? Or was it something more complex?
The scream was first introduced on the pagesTarzan of the Apes, powieść Edgara Rice’a Burroughsa z 1912 roku, w której opisał ją jako brzmiącą jak „okrzyk zwycięstwa byka małpy". Over the next fifteen years, Tarzan made several leaps to the big screen. But these silent films made viewers imagine the sound majestic than a scream.
Then, in 1929, he called one of the first talkiesTarzan the Tiger with actor Frank Merrill, who first recorded an attempt to scream. Unfortunately, it sounded like a drunken sports fan’s wail:
Three years later, Johnny Weissmuller, an Olympic swimmer with no acting experience, got into a blindfold and defined the role – and screamed – for decades to come. Weismuller later said his famous version of the Tarzan screamed was inspired by the yodeling of his German neighbors, along with his own success in a yodeling contest he’d won as a boy.
But MGM, the studio that shot Tarzan’s first films with Weissmuller, said it reinforced the cry in post-production. Apparently they added and mixed:
1Weismuller’s second voice, improved
2The trace of a howling hyena, reproduced in reverse
3A note sung by a female opera soprano whose speed varied to produce a fluttering sound
4The snarling dog
5The roar of a camel
6A raspy note of stringed violin strings
Another story is that a famous opera tenor was hired to record the scream, and the tape was then manipulated and rewound so that the second half of the scream was the first half reversed.
Weissmuller denied that there were ever sonic tricks and in many of his public appearances until his death in 1984, he always honored signature requests. If he lacked cinematic reverb and high fidelity, he still sounded similar to what he heard on screen.
However, Tarzan’s scream was achieved, it was so perfect in Weissmuller’s early films that the sound was reused for decades. No matter which actor was playing Tarzan, when it came to the yell, they cued up Weissmuller’s original “Ah-eeh-ah . . “. As an example, here’s a scene from the 1981 Tarzanremake with Bo Derek:
Later, of course, the comedy Carol Burnett gave birth to screams of comic effect on her TV show (scroll to 4:46).
Today, there are many YouTubers who’ve taken a crack at the he shouted. Here are three of the funniest Tarzan nominees:
For nearly 100 years, Tarzan of the Apes has entertained and captivated men in print, radio, and film. For men who feel trapped in the iron cage of corporate and suburban life, Tarzan represents the ability to tame their original side and escape to the wilderness to revive their masculine spirit. In fact, the characters creator, Edgar Rice Burroughs, created the Tarzan character as an act of liberation from his disappointing and boring life. In an interview, Burroughs confirmed this motivation:
We wish to escape not alone the narrow confines of city streets for the freedom of the wilderness, but the restrictions of man-made laws, and the inhibitions that society has placed upon us. We like to imagine ourselves wanderers of freedom, masters of ourselves and of our will; in other words, each of us would like to be Tarzan. At least I’d like to; I admit it.
Tarzan represents the idealized noble savage. Son of the British nobility, he is adopted and raised by a tribe of monkeys when his parents are imprisoned and die on the West African coast. Tarzan later meets the American Jane, whom he takes as his wife, and the two try to establish a normal life in England. But annoying restrictions and annoying civil society hypocrisy force Tarzan back to the jungle. Virtuous, heroic and athletic, only the wilderness offered a freedom and adventure that resembled a home.

When Burroughs introduced Tarzan to the newspaper in 1912, he created one of America’s first superheroes. Tarzan developed special talents and abilities that allowed him to survive and thrive in the jungle. He could climb trees and swing branches in the jungle with the same speed and skill as the monkeys who raised him. Unlike his monkey family, Tarzan was a skilled swimmer which turned him into an amphibious killer. Hed dive from staggering heights and swim great distances. In addition to his physical talents, Tarzan has developed several mental talents. In a few days he could learn new languages and even talk to animals.

Boys and men in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries wanted to imitate the monkey Tarzan. Tarzans physical prowess has inspired men for nearly 100 years to get in shape and harness their inner wild man. Today, were giving a short primer on developing four of Tarzans key skills: swimming, diving, climbing, and swinging. While you may never need to swing from a vine to save your lady or climb a tree to save your own life, its good to know you could if you had to!
How to swim like Tarzan
In Tarzan movies, a frequent scene is that of the Ape Man diving into a river and swimming briskly to fight an alligator thats circling Jane. Tarzan fights an underwater battle with a giant reptile and defeats it by twisting its neck or stabbing it with a knife. But to get to the alligator before he eats his lady, Tarzan needs to swim fast.
In movies, Tarzan always uses crawl punch (which we often refer to as freestyle). And for good reason. The forward crawl (also known as the American or Australian forward crawl) is the fastest and most effective of all swimming movements. Swimming is such an essential skill for Tarzan that film producers in the 1930s brought five-time Olympic gold medalist Johnny Weissmuller to the role of Tarzan.

Tarzan’s forehead technique is pretty simple. He floats face down in the water with both arms outstretched in front of you. This is the starting position. Beat your legs alternately with short, up and down strokes. The arms alternate with sweeping movements. The movement of the arm can be divided into three parts: pulling, pushing and retrieving.
Lower your hand into the water so your thumb goes first. This is called catching the water and prepares you for the pull. The pulling movement takes place underwater in the shape of a semicircle. It ends in the front of the chest as seen here:
The thrust begins when your hand reaches where your chest is. Youll feel your palm pushing the water behind you, instead of pulling it towards you. The push ends with an arm to the side of the body.
Recovery begins with pushing. Bring your arm out of the water, bend your elbow, and rotate your forearm outward until it points forward. The arm extends straight forward until it is fully reached forward.
Keep your face in the water as you crawl.
Breathing is done by turning the head to the side so that the face rises above the surface of the water. After inhaling, the face is submerged again and the swimmer exhales his nose underwater. How often you breathe depends on your personal preferences. Some swimmers inhale every second arm stroke, while others inhale every third arm stroke.
How to dive like Tarzan
Tarzan constantly dives into rivers to rescue one of his monkey friends or the old lady in distress, Jane. In Tarzans New York Adventure, he takes a death defying dive from the Brooklyn Bridge in order to escape the police, so he can save a jungle boy who was taken by the circus.
Diving into the water allowed Tarzan to quickly reach his destination. Also, it looks cool to dive a swan from a tree branch.
Carol Burnett wypowiedziała się niedawno, aby ujawnić, jak jej kultowy krzyk „Tarzan" uratował ją przed napadem.
- pin it
Podczas lat prowadzenia legendarnego programu rozrywkowego „The Carol Burnett Show”, Carol Burnett stała się znana ze swojego krzyku „Tarzan”. What many fans don’t know, however, is that her yell once saved her from being mugged.
Kultowy „Tarzan" Yell Burnetta
W wywiadzie dla Larry’ego Kinga Burnett wyjaśniła, że po raz pierwszy zaczęła krzyczeć „Tarzan", gdy miała około 9 lat, po tym jak obejrzałaTarzan cousins movies. She made sure to clarify to King that it’s not actually a yell at all, but rather a “Tarzan” yodel.
„Tarzan" Yodel ratuje Burnetta przed napadem
W wywiadzie z 2014 roku w programie „Today" Burnett ujawnił, jak ten „Tarzan" jodłował kiedyś przed napadem.
„Byłem bardzo młody i szedłem ulicą" – wspomina Burnett. "It was late at night".
At that moment, this iconic comedian was on his way to get a newspaper and noticed that a man had approached her from behind.
"This guy came up behind me, like a mugger or something".

Burnett added that the man grabbed her by the shoulder and said, "OK, OK, miss".
While most people would be scared right now, Burnett was just furious with rage.
„I byłam tak wściekła, że się odwróciłam" – opowiadała. In the heat of the moment, Burnett did her famous "Tarzan" yell, right in the wannabe mugger’s face!
In fact, his strategy worked and the suspected bandit was so baffled by what he was doing that he ran away.
"Ten frajer uciekł!" Burnett said with a laugh. She went to tell the audience. "In case you’re ever" in that situation, "this could work".
„Powiedział:„ Nie mogę poradzić sobie z szaloną kobietą "- żartowała gospodarz Kathie Lee Gifford.
“Exactly,” Burnett agreed. “It worked!”
Keep that in mind if you ever get attacked!
Burnett’s difficult family situation
Recently, Carol Burnett secured temporary legal custody of her 14-year-old grandson while her daughter Erin continues to struggle with drug addiction.
„Ze względu na problemy z uzależnieniami i inne okoliczności, z którymi moja córka Erin zmaga się, wpływając na dynamikę jej najbliższej rodziny, mój mąż i ja wystąpiliyy moja córka News, składając petycję o opiekę.

We will continue to keep Burnett and his family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Aaaaaaaa … Transcript Tarzan?
2 November 2007 by Gabriele
So seldom do things come on the radio that I think I genuinely have something to say about that today’s item on the Tarzan call on PRI’s “The World” interested me.
To put the money where my mouth is, I tried to write it down:
It took about 5 minutes (including the time I had to spend figuring out how to stop in the Finale). I’m not super confident about the exact pitches of the yodeled bit, but with a little more time I’m sure I (or someone with bigger ears) could get closer to it. The point is, it’s not rocket science.
By the way, to Burroughs Estate: if you are still looking for a legal option and are looking for someone to do an expert opinion for you, I’m sure we can find the right terms….
You know what’s not fair at all? The fact that Tarzan doesn’t get anywhere near the hype and glamour that other heroes get. Could the Hulk jump from tree to tree to the vine? Could Superman use his mind to control entire animal populations? Will Batman look good in anything other than a leather thong? No, no and no! So, here’s a game in honor of the hero who is the real king of the jungle.
Bring 2–4 children to the stage with you. Make sure the audience hears you, ask attendees if they know Tarzan. They will probably say yes, but take a moment to describe it anyway. Tell them what he looked like, what he wore, what he did, describe his powers and then mention that he had the patented Tarzan Scream. DON’T DO IT; just say he did it. Ask them if they know how it went, but don’t let them practice it at all.
Then explain that you will give each of them a chance to make Tarzan scream in front of the crowd. They only have one chance to scream Tarzan, and then the crowd will pick a winner.
Put the mic in front of the first student’s face and let him/her belt it out. Then give the others a turn, one at a time. Before letting the crowd pick a winner, you may want to recreate the real sound effect through your PA system. Upewnij się, że zwycięzca but „swingującą” dobrą nagrodę.
One of my childhood heroes was Tarzan. You know, a fictional character raised by monkeys in African jungles. He swung in the trees, swam in lakes, and lived in this wonderful tree house. This was my life as a child. I had a tree house and a swing with a rope between tall pine trees in East Texas. We lived on a lake where I was allowed to swim. It was fun fantasizing about being Tarzan when I jump out of my tree house on a rope swing and let myself go as I fall into the cool lake water.
I also perfected my Tarzan cry.
If you ventured to the swamp side of Lake Cherokee in the early 1970’s you may, very well, have seen a sunburned little boy swinging through the trees in nothing but his swim trunks. No doubt you would hear him scream his signature Tarzan scream.
Did you know the Bible talks about crying out to God? I know that may sound disrespectful but it’s true.
Today I have a lot of appreciation for Jennifer, my wife, for this blog. She’s the one who turned me onto Psalm 22 This Psalm is full of Messianic prophecies which are prophecies about Jesus. However, it’s the early part of this passage that talks about yelling at God.
(Ps 22: 1) My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why don’t you help me so far And from my words moans ?
I underlined the word moans because in the ancient Hebrew it actually meant to roar or to yell like a wild beast. Like Tarzan’s scream or the lion’s roar. The excerpt continues …
(Psalm 22: 2) Oh my God, me. scream during the day, but you can’t hear; And at night and I am not silent.
Again, in the Hebrew, that word scream means to accost someone and plead with them. David, the author of this Psalm, approaches God as a person who grabs someone by the collar, stands straight in his face and asks for help. David was in grave danger when he wrote this. Tak bardzo, że mówi, że wołał do Boga jak dziś i w nocy.
One of the things I love about the Psalms are their redeeming qualities. No matter how bad it is, God always comes in the end. David cried out to God, and at first it seemed that God was far away and not listening. However, God never abandons us or abandons us. By verse 24 we see God’s redemption.
(Psalm 22:24). Because he does not disdain or disdain the suffering of the needy. He didn’t turn his back on them, but he listened to their cries for help.
In other words, when we accost God and yell at Him for help, He doesn’t ignore us, belittle us or turn His back, but He listens to our cries and delivers us. Every time that.
Unleash your inner Tarzan. Getta indietro la testa e grida a Dio. Let’s yell at Him and plead for His help. Let us scream out for deliverance from pandemics and injustice. We roar for awakening to come to this earth. Let us accost heaven and plead for God’s Kingdom to come and His will to be done on this earth today, in Jesus name. Let it be so.

CLINTON >> There is one, and only one, of history’s most distinguished authors whose literary achievements annually are celebrated by people whose attire trends to T-shirts labeled “Dum-Dum” and who happily compete to perform the best imitation of the victory scream of the Great Ape.
A tip from Johnny Weissmuller. Attend the 2015 Burroughs Annual Dum-Dum Convention for Bibliophiles Thursday through Saturday at William Stanton Andrews Memorial Town Hall.
Since 1960, the nonprofit literary society has gathered each year to honor the achievements of Edgar Rice Burroughs, the prolific writer of science fiction stories and novels made internationally famous with the publication of his first "Tarzan" story in 1912
Uznany na stronie rodziny Burroughs jako młody człowiek, który zawiódł w każdym swoim przedsięwzięciu – wojskowy, jako kowboj, „ksigowy”, sprzedawca temperówek – dopóki nie pisa niećęćamić. first literary sale. By the end of his career, he had authored nearly 100 stories and novels, became the first author to incorporate himself, purchased a ranch that became the city of Tarzana, California, and was described by the great science fiction writer Ray Bradbury as “probably the most influential writer in the history of the world “.

Although these works, now in the public domain, remain the cornerstone of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. today, Burroughs Bibliophiles – among many devoted to Burroughs’ work – carried his torch in their own unique way.

Tarzan, as we may all recall from Burroughs’ story, was born to Lord and Lady Greystoke after they were marooned in the jungles of Africa, and the infant was adopted by the great ape Kala after the death of his parents.

History and origin
Although the RKO Picture version of the Tarzan screamed ostensibly was that of Weissmuller, different stories exist as to how the Tarzan Yell was created. Many have speculated that a man named Lloyd Thomas Leech was the original voice of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Tarzan Yell. He was an opera singer in the 40s and 50s and in the 60s. He won the Chicagoland Music Festival on August 17,1946 He went on to sing throughout the U. S. touring with several opera companies. There are recordings of his recalling his account of how the Tarzan screamed was created. His story is supported by his children and grandchildren.  According to the newspaper columnist L. M. Boyd (circa 1970),”Blended in with that voice are the growl of a dog, a trill sung by a soprano, a note played on a violin’s G string and the howl of a hyena recorded backward.” According to Bill Moyers, it was created by combining the recordings of three men: a baritone, a tenor, and an Arkansas talker.  Another widely published view concerns the use of Austrian yodeling which is played backwards at abnormally high speeds. But Weissmuller argued that the scream was actually the same voice as him. The version of him is supported by his son and his partner in Tarzan, Maureen O’Sullivan.
In the 1999 Disney animated film, based on the Tarzan series, the character releases an updated version of the scream at various times.
The Tarzan screamed is often used for comic effect in later, unrelated movies, particularly when a character is swinging on vines or doing other “Tarzanesque” things. The sound clip used in Weissmuller’s films was also used exclusively in the Tarzan animated series and the television series Tarzan (1966 – 1968) with Ron Ely, rather than having an actor portray Tarzan in an attempt to mimic a distinctive scream. Komiczną wersję tego krzyku wykonał Ray Stevens w swoim nowatorskim hicie z 1969 roku „Gitarzan”. It was even used in a 1981 film Tarzan, the monkey. The scream is heard at the Carolina Hurricanes home games. Comedian Carol Burnett screamed at her request during his weekly Q&A session on her comedy series. Even a version of the scream has appeared Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi as a character, Chewbaccy sways on a vine towards Imperial Scout Walker on the forest planet Endor. The scream is also heard in the third prequel Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith in a similar scene of a wookie jumping on a tank of attacking droids. It was also used for the dubious comic effect in the James Bond film Octopusin 1983

Description of the sign:The brand is made up of a famous soundTarzan he shouted. The trademark is a scream consisting of a series of about ten sounds, alternating between the chest register and the falsetto voice, as follows:
- a half long beep in the thoracic register,
- a brief upward burst of an octave plus a fifth from the previous note,
- a short note down a major third from the previous note,
- a short sound on a major third from the previous note,
- a long note below an octave plus a major third from the previous note,
- a short sound one octave higher than the previous note,
- a short sound on a major third from the previous note,
- a short note down a major third from the previous note,
- a short sound on a major third from the previous note,
- one long note below an octave plus a fifth from the previous note.
The recognition of the trademark registration in the territory of the European Union is uncertain. In late 2007, the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) stated that ERB, Inc.’s attempts to maintain such a brand must fail legally, arguing that ‘what has been presented as a graphic representation cannot, from the outset, serve as a graphic representation of the required sound. Ekspert słusznie zatem odmówił przyznania daty zgłoszenia “. However, the trademark registration was updated in 2010 (for slot machines)  and in 2014 (for online use). 
Other Tarzan screameds
The very first version of the Scream can be found in the partially soundproofed seriesTarzan the Tiger (1929). Ta wersja jest opisana jako „Nee-Yah!” Noise. 
W serialu radiowym Tarzana z 1932 roku z Jamesem Pierce’em krzyk brzmi jak „Taaar-maan-ganiii". W języku małp wymienionym w powieściach Tarzana „Tarmangani" oznacza „białą małpę". 
A very similar scream was used for Burroughs’ own Tarzan film,The new adventures of Tarzan (1935), shot in parallel with the MGM Weismuller films in Central America starring Herman Brix as the cultured Tarzan. Krzyk można najlepiej opisać jako dźwięk „Mmmmm-ann-gann-niii”, który stopniowo narasta coraz wyżej. 
Elmo Lincoln recreated his victory scream in a 1952 episode of You asked for it. 
Donkey Kong has also been known to use the Tarzan screamed (although it sounds like “Ooo-wa-ooo-aaooaaooaa-ooo!”). His Tarzan screamed is first heard in Donkey Kong: Battle in the jungleand was later used inDK Jungle Climber,Phrases from Donkey Kong Countryand further onDonkey Kong Country: tropical frost.
Krzyk Tarzana jest używany jako melodyjny refren w singlu Baltimory „Tarzan Boy”.  This refrain ironically plays in place of an ordinary Tarzan screamed when Haru climbs and struggles to keep his balance on the top of a palm tree in The Ninja of Beverly Hills. The chorus was also used in a 1993 jungle-themed commercial for Listerine Cool Mint mouthwash. 
In the 1999 animated film, the Tarzan screamed is dubbed by Brian Blessed, who voiced the villain Clayton. This was done after Tony Goldwyn, who voiced the title character, blew the rumor out of him.
Jane (played by Maureen O’Sullivan) used the Tarzan Yell variation.
