Sex & Nudity

  • Someone sang he was the king of swingers.
  • The main character Mowgli (human child) only wears a loincloth.
  • There is a part where Bagheera pulls on Mowgli's underwear; Mowgli having to use his feet in order to kick him off and get him to let go.

Violence & Gore

  • The film contains a few scenes of mild violence, such as a boy pulling a snake's tail causing it to knock its head against a branch, or a tiger biting a bear on its rear and a tiger catching fire from a branch that is tied to its tail.
  • However, these scenes are portrayed humorously with comical sound effects, and do not depict any detail of injury.


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • This is a family film. No drugs, alcohol or smoking is used in any way, shape or form in this feature.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The villains Shere Khan and (mostly) Kaa may upset very young children.
  • Some comic violence is used in this movie. Very brief loud accordian music is used at the scenes where Kaa gets his knotted tail stuck inbetween two trees and eventually pulls it out like a spring. At the very end of the film, there is a very intense fighting scene. Baloo The bear gets clawed at the end by Shere Khan and faints (this scene has made a lot of children cry in the past). However, Baloo survives and a panicked Shere Khan runs away with fire on a stick tied to his tail (the rain washes the fire away and Shere Khan runs away unharmed, but still very scared).
