Quotes

Mowgli: Akela goes free to live as he pleases, and you will not kill him! For that is not my will! You have told me so often tonight that I am a man, and indeed I would have been a wolf with you to my life's end, but I feel your words are true! So, I do not call you my brothers anymore, but dogs! As a man should!

THE Best Mowgli adaptation
11 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

THIS is the the best adaptation of Mowglie's Brothers. It follows the original almost exactly, with two added scenes of Mowgli dressing up in sheets to scar Tabaqui, and dropping a melon on Shere Khan.

this got me to read all of the Jungle Book stories as a young child. As far as Shere Khan being white, I always thought he was supposed to be, and looked for some reference to that in the books. In "Tiger! Tiger!" the villagers DO think SHere Khan is a ghost, but it's because of his lameness, the same as "wicked old money lender, who passed away some years ago." If he were white it would have only increased their superstitions, but what I think happened was this: Chuck Jones considered doing more adaptations of Kipling; and since it wouldn't animate well to show a limping tiger, he decided on another reason the villagers believed he was a ghost--namely making him white. Unfortunately, "Tiger! Tiger!" never got made.
