He is called upon each episode to save its inhabitants from various threats. George's love interest is Ursula, whom George refers to as "Fella." He has an ape for a friend, appropriately named Ape, who is far more intelligent than George. Then there is Shep, George's pet elephant who acts like a lap dog.
Each episode featured three unrelated cartoons: George of the Jungle, Tom Slick, and Super Chicken.

George of the Jungle - Secondary characters - Netflix
Narrator – The narrator of each George of the Jungle episode. In comparison to the narrator of the original cartoon, he speaks in a documentary-style fashion, often beginning each episode claiming “To survive in the jungle”. often followed by a situation in complete contrast to the first impression of his introduction. Dr. Scott – The modern doctor now living in the jungle with his daughter. He has formed a somewhat friendly (and often hostile) rivalry with the local Witch Doctor, continuously trying to disprove his barbaric medicine and shaman skills with modern science (often with equally unsuccessful results). Witch Doctor – A very compact, diminutive character who believes his shaman skills are the solution to all problems. He often competed with Dr. Scott and his modern medicine to see who can solve a problem first, although neither usually provides the solution to whatever problem they tackle. Big Mitch – A conniving golden marmoset and frequent pest to the jungle community. He lives in an ancient temple full of riches and booby traps, and has a pair of bongos with him. Shep – George's elephant friend who actually acts like a dog. He travels with George on most of his adventures, only rivaled by the Tookie-Tookie bird. He is very untrained, and can often be seen destroying sections of the jungle. Shep likes to play with George a lot, often playing with him when he should be helping people throughout the jungle. Tookie-Tookie Bird – George's second pet, a parrot-like bird that can only say his own name. Howie - A howler monkey who runs a juice bar.
