A feature of Pecos Bill's background prominently featured in the Disney adaptation is that he was raised by coyotes.

[introduction to "Pecos Bill"
Master of Ceremonies
Here's a tall tale straight from the chuck wagon, just the way the old-timers used to tell it. According to them, Pecos Bill was the roughest, toughest, rootin'est, tootin'est, shootin'est cowpoke that ever lived. Well, any story about old Pecos is bound to be right strong medicine, so maybe it's best to sashay into it kinda gentle-like.
