History: After his supply plane crashed while flying across Africa transporting goods intended for the Allied armed forces during World War II, aviator Roger Drum found himself amnesiac and stranded in a strange lost land full of prehistoric creatures, as well as a human tribe and their brutish enemies, the Cave People. Over time he became a master of the jungle, and when he slew a giant snake feared to be an evil god by both tribes, using the last of his bullets, he gained their friendship, bringing peace to the valley. The tribes dubbed him Thun'da after the noise the gun had made. Later, after being forced to slay a sabretoothed tiger that attacked him, Thun'da adopted its cub, raising it to be his friend, Sabre.
