True, those buzzards are like the Beatles and the movie itself has some rhythm in its songs (even the Indian jungle background underscore almost throughout the movie)and storyline. The artists made a great job in drawing the animals- it seems that they drew them while being confronted with them. I may want to read the story to compare with Disney's live action one with Mogli giong back to the jungle with Kitty when he's much older and the other Disney action movie seen only on TV where Mogli does socialize more with the wolves and Shere Khan does more Attacking. This movie would be the best to watch out of all of those versions. I guess the reason why there is a sequel is because he shrugged his shoulders at the end, and many would question if he comes back. Hey, being hooked can occur whether or not you were in the wild... :) Overall, for any age, it's a sensational movie to watch- a masterpiece you want to buy for the holidays!
The influence of the 1960's is all over this Film,right down to the Buzzards,very reminiscent of The Beatles.One of the few Disney Films that dates itself.
I loved this as a kid, and to my surprise I rather enjoyed it as an adult. Not too much cutie-pie crap, and if it doesn't stick too close to Kipling's story it doesn't do a bad job.
This film needs to be back on DVD! By the way, why was the sequel made?
