When Huell Met a Leopard

Support Provided By

Yes, that's Huell Howser dressed like Tarzan. Doubtless there's someone out there who's always wondered what Huell would look like dressed in a faux animal skin. You're welcome, ma'am or sir. Happy Friday.

The pressing question, of course, is why Huell would dress like Tarzan. As you'll find out from watching the below clip from a 1979 bit Huell did for WSM-TV in Nashville, it was to hype an interview with "Wild Kingdom" host Jim Fowler. And an African leopard. (If you're antsy to see the leopard, skip ahead to 2:08.)


It's an awesome video, and it eventually leads to this scene, which is even more awesome than Huell dressed like Tarzan:
