Pygmy Hippo Shoppe

World Jungle Souvenir Guide

What an incredible souvenir from the "World Jungle Compound" in Thousand Oaks California!

Originally called "Jungle Land USA", the facility opened in 1929 and not only was an animal theme park, but many TV and movie productions used the park's trained animals and facilities for filming.

Some of the most notable films include: The Birth of a Nation, The Fugitive, Tarzan the Ape Man, Doctor Dolittle, and The Adventures of Robin Hood.

The facility closed in was used 1969 because of competition from other Southern California amusement parks, and because the facility "didn't blend in" with the increasingly urban character of Thousand Oaks; The location is the current site of the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza.
