"Look for the bare necessities, the simple bare necessities, forget about your worries and your strife...", 22 December 2011
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

This is another one of the better sing-alongs from the series. The Jungle Book to this day is still one of my favourites due to its memorable characters and catchy songs. And here we have the two best songs from the film shown here, Bare Necessities and I Wanna Be Like You, used to great effect. Throughout the video the animation and music are wonderful, and Jiminy Cricket and Professor Owl are likable and entertaining hosts. Of the rest of the songs, the only one to not do much for me was You are a Human Animal, which even when watching the video over and over as a child was one of about four or so songs featured of any of the videos that never struck me as particularly memorable, and some of the animation in it was rather flat and hurried. The two Jungle Book songs, the jazzy Everybody Wants to be a Cat, the affecting Old Yeller and the adorable Cinderella Work Song more than make up for it though, as do Figaro and Cleo and The Ugly Bug Ball. In conclusion, I like this one a great deal, like all the Disney sing-alongs it is educational for kids getting into Disney, and it is fun with some great songs. 9/10 Bethany Cox
