Chuck Jones' take on Mowgli
26 April 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Legendary animator Chuck Jones has brought another Jungle Book story to life after Rikki-Tikki Tavi and The White Seal, with excellent animation and story telling by Roddy McDowall and Dean Elliott's musical score. You know, the only adaptation of the "Mowgli" stories I had known is the Disney version, but I love both! including the version from Russia. But unlike Disney's version, Jones adhered to the original story, although Shere Khan becomes a white tiger and there is no reference to his lameness...of course I did not know the tiger was lame in the original stories. And also we got to see his spineless slave/henchman - the jackal Tabaqui (animated by veteran Jones' animator from the Warner Bros. years - Ben Washam), who didn't appeared in the Disney version; I love how made his appearance in the picture...what a grin.

I love the little wolf babies, they're SO cute! I also love that bit a animation put into the scene when Rashka (Mother Wolf) told Shere Khan off.
