Bagheera the Panther and Baloo the Bear have a difficult time trying to convince a boy to leave the jungle for human civilization.
A notable character from Rudyard Kipling's book not featured in the film was Tabaqui the Cowardly Jackal, a sidekick to Shere Khan. He was likely not included as the idea of a canine failing to eat the film's protagonist was already used in the previous Disney animated film, The Sword in the Stone (1963). The role of a villain attempting to eat the film's protagonist was instead given to Kaa.
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 ...
After the fight with the monkeys Baloo and Bagheera have black eyes. They seem to be reversed at one point, but that's because they're looking at reflections in a pond.
There are no end credits for this feature film. However, the credits are at the beginning.
