Johnny Sheffield again dons a leopard loincloth as Bomba in the second film of the series. In this adventure the jungle boy sets out to avenge the killing of his monkey friend by a panther and ends up being the centerpiece of a jealously battle for his attention.
The lagoon where Bomba and a girl go swimming would later be used in the TV series Gilligan's Island.
Catering to production code, Johnny Sheffield wears tight fitting dark underwear beneath his loincloth which can easily be seen during both a windstorm and the climatic fight with a panther scenes (see below).
