The series' title character, Kašnga**, was a white boy who managed to flee from an expedition into Congo in Africa, that was attacked and destroyed by natives. He - whose's real name is unknown - grows up among apes into being a strong and righteous figure with the bynames Jungle King and Lord of the Jungle.
