Synopsis:

Hunters beware! Tar-chan, king of the jungle, protects the animals from those who would capture or kill them. And with a bounty on his head, life isn't easy for the muscular hunk. Whether he's fighting poachers and bounty hunters, taking care of the whims of his once-model-now-fat wife Jane, entertaining the advances of nubile teenager Helen or fighting with his archrival Anabebe, Tar-chan's life is never dull. But between attempting to learn how to fly, unwillingly taking on new 'students' and trying to beat the heat, will the warrior ever have time to relax?

Want more jungle action with less crudeness and more weird? Do check out Guu, a far more interesting and hilarious series.

Papuwa

Papuwa

When the young Kotaro (errr...Rotaro) washes up on Papuwa island with a case of amnesia, he has no idea that his life is about to take a turn for the bizarre. With housemates such as the man-maid Liquid, an asexual snail and a transsexual fish with legs, Rotaro will have his hands full! But beneath the tranquility of the island lies a dangerous secret that could destroy the island, and the answer lies only with Rotaro. With enemies from his past afoot, his friends trying to eat him and a giant poisonous mushroom trying to get him high, what’s a young boy to do?!

If you like the wacky humor of Tar-chan but want something less crude and even more spastic, please check out the far superior Papuwa. It's more hilarious and better in all ways.

Ultimate Muscle

Ultimate Muscle

Humanity, beware! The nefarious alien race of wrestlers known as DMP have crash landed on Earth atop a giant fist, and only one boy has the power to stop them: Kid Muscle! Son of the legendary King Muscle, Kid is said to have the power of Ultimate Muscle; and thus, he is chosen to lead the new generation of wrestlers to victory over the DMP. However, back on Muscle Planet, Kid has no intentions of fighting; he's lazy, immature, and more likely to pass gas in the face of an enemy than fight. Attempting to escape from these duties, Kid uses the power of his farts to blast away, yet accidentally finds himself on his way to Earth anyways. There, he meets his father's old trainer named Meat – a man who is hell bent on turning Kid into a super wrestler. Can Kid and the other wrestlers use their skills to defeat the DMP?

Both series are plagued with horrendous character designs, crude humor and a dose of ecchi for good measure. If either appealed to you, definitely try out the other.
