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 (kchishol@rogers.com)

Version showed on national television India
6 June 2010 | by kirodi meenaSee all my reviews

It took some time to locate the original series on IMDb. I watched few episodes recently in Hindi and wanted to get the whole series but did not know what was the original version. Then I searched with director's name viz Fumio Karakoa and found this and verified with run time. I loved the series in school days around year 1995 when it was showed dubbed in Hindi on Doordarshan at morning hours on every Sunday. With "Sindbad the Sailor" this was a favorite watch on Sunday mornings. I have read the text by Rudyard Kipling as well but I really enjoyed this version more. With the opening sound track "Jungle Jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai, chaddi pahan ke phool khila hai" written by Gulzar this show has been one of the most popular among kids. With advent of Cartoon Network we have got access to other popular cartoon series in India but for me this series holds a special place.
