Did You Know?

Narrator:Now, we must be content to skip ten or eleven whole years, and only guess at the wonderful life Mowgli led among the wolves, because if it were written, it would fill an enormous book. He lived with the Seonee wolf pack, and with the cubs, although they of course were grown wolves almost before he was a child...See more »

Chuck Jones' take on Mowgli, 26 April 2008
Author: Julia Arsenault (ja_kitty_71) from Canada

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.
