In this campy adventure, a man raised in the mysterious African jungles by a pride of lions is captured by circus people and taken to New York along with his feline pals. Just before the boat is to dock, the lion-boy jumps ship and swims to shore. Dressed only in a loin cloth, he begins stalking the city streets where he encounters a pretty girl who quickly teaches him English. They fall in love, but before they can live happily ever after, the jungle King must help prevent disaster after a fire in the Brooklyn Zoo erupts and panic stricken animals begin running wild in the streets.
