Disneys latest animated epic owes as much to The Lion King and the tale of the ugly duckling than to the Johnny Weissmuller live-action series or the Edgar Rice Burroughs novels. Like The Lion King, it begins with a brief introduction to the world of the African jungle. Two sets of mothers and fathers care for their babies. One set of parents is human, shipwrecked and making a new home for themselves in a tree. The other parents are gorillas, raising their baby in the gorilla community. When the baby boys parents and the gorillas baby are killed by a tiger, the gorilla mother adopts the human baby and raises him as her own. Her mate, the leader of the gorillas, agrees reluctantly, but insists that the boy is an outsider, who can never be one of them. The boy, called Tarzan by his gorilla mother, is hurt by this, and tries to fit in.

    Disney released only eight animated films,(A Goofy Movie,Pocahontas,The HunchBack Of Notre Dame,All Dogs Go To Heaven 2,Hercules,Anastasia,Mulan and Tarzan).

    Do you mean during a particular time span? Because of course Disney has released many more animated films than those.

    Clayton kinda resembles Merlock from DuckTales The Movie and Gaston from Beauty And The Beast.
