Chuck Jones' take on Rudyard Kipling's story of the sea, 9 April 2008
Author: Julia Arsenault (ja_kitty_71) from Canada

I love seals and I love animation from Chuck Jones. Based on the story by Rudyard Kipling about Kotick, a rare white seal, who grows from a sweet little pup into an adult who later saves the colony from cruel hunters...I am against seal-hunting myself and I do also love a good animal story. As with other Kipling stories like Riki-Tiki Tavi, and Mowgli's Brothers,Chuck Jones once again made a masterpiece with great animation, story telling and also adding Beethoven's 6th Symphony in the music mix.

I love the scenes when Kotick was a little baby, he's SO cute! especially when he's practicing barking.
