That's a kid's cartoon movie.\par

\par
One of ERB's all-time best. Both Tarzan AND dinosaurs. Hard to beat. But \par
entitled Tarzan at the Earth's Core -- one of the Pellucidar series\par
\par
I checked my complete set of ERB novels. Here goes:\par
\par
The Pellucidar Series (the story of David Innes' travels in a dino-filled \par
hollow inner earth).\par
At the Earth's Core, 1922\par
Pellucidar,1923\par
Tanar of Pellucidar, 1929\par
Tarzan at the Earth's Core, 1929\par
Back to the Stone Age, 1937\par
Return to Pellucidar, 1941\par
Land of Terror, 1944\par
\par
The Caspak Series (Shipwrecked survivors on a south sea dinosaur island).\par
The Land that Time Forgot, 1918\par
The People that Time Forgot, 1918\par
Out of Time's Abyss, 1918\par
\par
There are also several Caveman novels:\par
\par
The Cave Girl, 1913\par
The Eternal Savage, 1925\par
\par
Out of Time's Abyss has a passage I found particularly memorable:\par
\par
     HERE LIES JOHN TIPPET\par
           ENGLISHMAN\par
  KILLED BY TYRANNOSAURUS\par
     10 SEPT. A.D. 1916\par
                R.I.P.\par
\par
If you enjoy Burroughs' dinosaur fiction, you might find Dinosaur Wars to \par
your liking. In writing it, I was led in part by a desire to update ERB in \par
terms of dinosaur science, and to delete his implicit sexism and racism while \par
keeping in mind his admirable heroes.\par
