The frist time I saw this movie was on 1972. Now my children and grand child are enjoying it the same.

A bear necessity!!!

on 5/12/2012

This movie is more than just another Disney masterpiece. The Jungle Book is a great tale of friendship and adventure. Although almost every animated feature that was created during Walt Disney's life is a classic, this one in particular holds a special place in the heart of many men (and now thanks to video and DVD, boys) who saw it while growing up. There isn't a boy alive who can see this movie and not want to be Mowgli. What a life it would be to live in the jungle, with friends like Baloo and Bagheera. It is every young boys dream to be so free.

ReviewSource At-A-Glance Film Reviews
Review The Jungle Book was the last Disney animated feature film that Walt Disney himself was personally involved in. It wasn't a bad film to go out on, though budget cuts are evident in the final product. Save for some beautiful panoramic establishing shots of the jungle, for instance, most of the backgrounds are drab, sometimes even blank. The story is based on Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book novels, but very loosely (Kaa the boa constrictor, for instance, was one of Mowgli's best friends in the books, but a comic yet deadly enemy in the film). If you can accept the sweeping changes the characters made in the transformation to the screen, they are rich and effective. Baloo is lovably jovial; Bagheera is the noble, refined, put-upon parent figure; and Shere Khan, as voiced by George Sanders, is an utterly terrifying villain, oozing confidence and raw power. Good family entertainment.

Review Louis Prima-typecast as King of the Apes! Now there's an idea worthy of Rudyard Kipling...not that it's Kiplingesque, only that it's of satisfactory magnitude. I don't remember all of these musical interludes in Kipling either, and they do more to ruin the rhythm and spirit of the thing (with the obvious exception of Mr. Prima's number) than contribute anything. Children really are capable of watching cartoons that don't take time out for musical numbers every ten minutes, I assure you. Some of the characters are great, Louis obviously (enjoy his work or be doomed to frown lines before you're 30), but also Baloo the Bear and the Liverpudlian Vulture. I have to say that hanging out with bears and vultures looks like a lot of fun. I mean, animals couldn't make a film about hanging out with judges and insurance salesmen half as appealing.

Quotes ...ideal for very small children - and also for grown-ups in need of a little stress relief and a smile.
Christopher Null, ...some of the best songs Disney ever did...Baloo the bear has since become an institution in the American cartoonisphere.

Mike Pinsky, DVD Verdict ...who can resist those songs?
Rob Thomas, Capital Times Fun characters, irresistible songs -- a Disney classic.
