The story takes place in a tropical jungle where people are conspicuously absent. But one day Bagheera the Panther (voice of Sebastian Cabot) discovers a baby in the wreck of a boat. Feeling pity on the child, Bagheera takes him to be raised with the wolves. Ten years later, the child has grown into Mowgli (voice of Bruce Reitherman). Mowgli discovers that his life is in danger because of the return to the area of Shere Khan the Tiger (voice of George Sanders), whose hatred of humans is such that Mowgli faces certain death if discovered. Bagheera agrees to transport Mowgli to the human village, where he will be safe from Shere Khan. Along the way to the village, night falls and Mowgli and Bagheera almost succumb to the man-eating snake Kaa (voice of Sterling Holloway). Escaping Kaa's coils, they run into the lock-step military elephant band of Colonel Hathi (voice of J. Pat O'Malley). Afterwards, Mowgli, who doesn't want to be sent to the human village, runs away from Bagheera and meets up with the fun-loving Baloo the Bear (voice of Phil Harrris). With both Bagheera and Baloo to protect him, Mowgli is saved from several more life-threatening situations -- including a barber-shop quartet of vultures, the crazed King Louie of the Apes (voice of Louis Prima), and Shere Khan himself -- before making it to the village of humans.

My two-year-old grandson loves it. Unlike "The Lion King," his other favorite video, this one doesn't hold as worrisome a degree of violence. The music is fun, and though the portrayal of women isn't ideal, it's not totally objectionable. Enjoy!

I purchased this as a Christmas present, for a disabled young girl I know, and it will not play.

This film is a world-class classic for just about everyone. It has been a childhood favourite of mine and will always have pride of place with all my other DVDs. It is the ultimate family film and always has been and always will be. It's not the kind of film that can be criticised, because it's just so wonderful in it's own innocence. If you want something to share with kids, then this is it, and if you just want to watch something which will help to recapture childhood whimsy, then it'll do that too. It is the pure magic that cinematographists strive to produce every day, and don't realie is already out there.
