The Jungle Book 1967


One of the most popular Disney films ever, The Jungle Book is a song-filled celebration of friendship, fun and adventure set in a lush and colourful world. Inspired by Rudyard Kipling's"Mowgli" stories, Disney's 19th animated masterpiece was the last animated feature that had Walt Disney's personal touch.

The jubilant adventure begins when Mowgli (Bruce Reitherman), a little boy raised by wolves, is urged by his friend Bagheera (Sebastian Cabot), a wise old panther, to seek safety in the man-village. Feeling very much at home in the jungle, Mowgli resists and runs off. Much to Bagherra's dismay, Mowgli meets a new friend with a happy-go-lucky- philosophy of life- Baloo (Phil Harris) the bear, a lovable " jungle bum." Together, the three buddies find the journey back to civilization anything but civilized! They encounter a crazy orangutan, the hypnotic and sly snake Kaa (Sterling Holloway) and the menacing Shere Khan (George Sanders)!

Louis Prima, J. Pat O'Malley, Verna Felton, Clint Howard, Chad Stuart, Lord Tim Hudson, John Abbott, Darleen Carr, Ben Wright.

This is a classic Disney movie, in the top 5 of their cartoons. It is a really excellent childrens movie. I watched this when I was growing up. Then I watched it with my children when they were younger. And you still don't get bored with it.
