Storyline

In the jungles of India, an orphaned human infant named Mowgli is taken in by a wolf pack under the sponsorship of the black panther, Bagheera. As Mowgli grows up with his canine family, he finds that he has a lot to learn about life in the jungle under the tutelage of Bagheera and Baloo the Bear. At the same time, Mowgli learns to thrive in his own way as he handles the threat of the tiger, Shere Khan and his minions. Throughout the boy's adventures, there is also the growing mystery of his origins and humanity that would change his life forever. Written by Kenneth Chisholm

17 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i love the jungle book my first experience was when i was four watching Disney's movie. i always wanted to be Mowgli. my love for the movie made me stumble upon this anime i was looking around a video store and i found this version made by Nippon animation the tape only included episodes one and two. but i instantly fell in love with the version. and collected all the videos available unfortunately the first ten episodes were only available. but being such a big fan i wondered through TV channels on sky looking for the show after a couple of years i found the show on a Chanel named Chanel east i videoed the episodes i needed but then the Chanel stopped showing them and i have never seen the whole series. after the red dogs episode. but for anyone who loves jungle book or anime this is great. i personally love it more than the Disney version. to witch the show is very different. if you find any videos buy them. overall excellent viewing David Percival aged 19 from the UK.
