Bagheera the Panther and Baloo the Bear have a difficult time trying to convince a boy to leave the jungle for human civilization.
King Louie calls Mowgli "cousin." This is technically accurate as both humans and apes are primates.
Many strange legends are told of these jungles of India, but none so strange as the story of a small boy named Mowgli. It all began when the silence of the jungle was broken by an unfamiliar sound.
Bagheera: It was a sound like one never heard before in this ...
Hathi claims Shere Kahn is miles away when Bagheera warns him Mowgli is in danger after the boy ran away as the tiger would kill him while alone. In reality elephants like all mammals except humans can smell animal scents from miles away meaning they should be able to detect Shere Khan's scent.
There are no end credits for this feature film. However, the credits are at the beginning.
