Jann of the Jungle is really Jane Hastings, a circus trapeze artist and animal trainer. When she comes to the jungle as a stunt double for the female star of an adventure movie, the natives on the set acclaim her as 'Jann'. Many years ago, a white woman was the friend and protector of the Africans but she met a white man who was a lion hunter and left with him. This was Jane Hastings' grandmother. Feeling at home in the verdure, Jane decides to stay on as the new 'Jann of the Jungle'. Cinematographer/photographer Pat Mahoney stays too, to watch over the new Jann.
Jungle Tales was renamed Jann of the Jungle starting with issue #8 (Nov. 1955). The series continued to issue #17 (June 1957).
