It was also planned to have the members of the band to both voice the characters and sing their song, " That's What Friends Are For ". However, at the time, The Beatles' John Lennon refused to work on animated films which led to the idea being discarded. However, Walt decided to cut the character for feeling that the film had already much action with the monkeys and vultures. While many of the later Disney feature films had animators being responsible for single characters, in The Jungle Book the animators were in charge of whole sequences, since many have characters interacting with one another.
The animation was done by xerography , with character design, led by Ken Anderson , employing rough, artistic edges in contrast to the round animals seen in productions such as Dumbo. Following one of Reitherman's trademarks of reusing animation of his previous films, the wolf cubs are based on dogs from Dalmatians.
Since Kaa has no limbs, its design received big expressive eyes, and parts of Kaa's body did the action that normally would be done with hands. Two of the cues were reused from previous Disney films. The scene where Mowgli wakes up after escaping King Louie used one of Bruns' themes for Sleeping Beauty ; and the scene where Bagheera gives a eulogy to Baloo when he mistakenly thinks the bear was killed by Shere Khan used Paul J.
Smith 's organ score from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Longtime Disney collaborator Gilkyson was the first songwriter to bring several complete songs which followed the book closely but Walt Disney felt that his efforts were too dark. The only piece of Gilkyson's work which survived to the final film was his upbeat tune " The Bare Necessities ", which was liked by the rest of the film crew.
The Sherman Brothers were then brought in to do a complete rewrite. Disney said the "nice, mysterious, heavy stuff" from both works was not what he aimed for, instead going for a "lightness, a Disney touch". He acquires a scar on his left eye afterwards. His fur is red in color. It is later revealed that they had also fought previously to decide which one would marry Luri.
He later moves away, apparently leaving his daughter behind, and becomes the leader of a pack of wolves in a rocky desert area. Bacchus - A fat wolf who can never hunt properly. He is more fitted to babysitting the wolf cubs. He appears more often in the first half of the series, and is occasionally used for comic relief. He is mentioned later on however, when everyone was discussing the topic of a new leader one of the wolves said Bacchus should lead the pack, much to some of the other wolves' dismay , though no further mention of him occurs after that.
Fargas - An old wolf who was saved by Alexander from a pack of dholes.
His fur is pale blue or fully white. He steals food from the pack's storage in his first few appearances due to apparently being brainwashed by demons; he soon leaves on a journey after being purified by Bagheera, and has not returned since.
Lala - Vermillion's daughter and Akela's granddaughter. She has orange fur, though slightly lighter than her father's. She acts like a tomboy early in the series, and refuses to accept Mowgli as a member of the pack. Later in the series, she matures and becomes more fond of Mowgli, even developing a crush on him ep; "Mowgli Has a Sweetheart".
She soon switches to Sura when he saves her from a trio of crocs. By the end of the series, she and Sura are the parents of two cubs, one of whom is given the name Rusty in the English dub. He is navy blue in colour.
Sandah hates the humans after they killed his sister, Dulia and resents Mowgli for being a human. He eventually comes to terms with him, and even though he leaves with Vermillion and his pack, he and Mowgli appear to share a close camaraderie. Sandah seems to be a lieutenant, or beta wolf, to Vermillion. Certain translations portray him as female. Maki - A golden-yellow and cream, female wolf and Akru's mate. Maki is a great singer and, at one point, she's seen giving singing lessons to Akru.
She is a minor character and appears very late in the series.
In the German version she was actually male, due to the fact that Akru was female in that version of the show. She still retained her feminine looks though. Kichi - Mowgli's red panda friend. His parents are killed by humans. After Mowgli accuses Kichi of causing trouble which he unintentionally does and being a nuisance, he has a harder time fitting in with the new crowd due to already being an outsider and decides to get on the wrong foot. But his friendship with Mowgli would be put to the test when they're prompted to work together.
Later in the series he lives together with Mowgli in his hut.
In the English version, Kichi is referred to as a male. In the German version, Kichi is called Kiki.
The confusion is due to the fact that the character was voiced by a woman in the Japanese version, a common practice in animation voice work for younger or cute characters. He exhibits a similar protection towards her and her family as he did to the English family in the original short story, and extends this protective behavior to Mowgli. Rikki-Tikki kills Buldeo's pet Indian cobra after it tries to attack Mowgli in the middle of the night and later alerts Mowgli that Jumeirah and her family have been holed up by the villagers.
Hathi - The great Indian elephant who serves as the ruler of the whole forest of Seeonee.
He is usually seen accompanied by his two sons. Hathi first appeared in the series proclaiming the Water Truce at the Peace Rock during a drought and told the animals the story of How Fear Came.
Hathi shows up occasionally afterwards, appearing once to help drive Grizzle away, another time to help raze the village, again to show Mowgli the Elephant Dance, and one final time in the series finale when the animals bid Mowgli farewell. Chil - A Brahminy kite who served as the messenger for Akela's pack and Hathi.
Linda - A benevolent English girl although in the American dub, neither her nor her dad speak with English accents who adopts Bagheera as a cab and keeps as a pet. Bagheera tells Mowgli a story about her and we meet her through flashback sequences.
She has a love for not just any animal, but him especially it seems.
She also seems to have a grand understanding of animals through some connection. When her father attempts to whip Bagheera while Linda gives the cat milk, she defends him by shielding him and is slightly injured when he accidentally whips her instead, when she gets in the way. When her father confronts her and Bagheera again and tries shooting him, Linda makes another attempt to protect him by letting him out of his cage and setting him free.
As he escapes to safety, she leaps in front of her father and takes the bullets; her exact fate is unknown, as Bagheera never found out if she survived or not.
Mowgli isn't sure whether he can trust him at first because of all the stories and reputation about humans, and their history with animals, but comes to accepting Bougi's offer to help when he heals him and gives him food.
He turns out to be genuinely kind-hearted. Bougi is later slashed in the back by Shere Khan, defending Mowgli and Meshua from the tiger but eventually recovers and survives. Bougi's name in the English adaptation is Rahhar.
When the family first meet Mowgli, Mari mistakes Mowgli for her son Keshnu, but despite the fact that it's not really him, she still treats him as if he were one of her own and he grows on her instantly. She comes to love Mowgli so much so that she desperately wishes and prefers that he not take on Shere Khan. Mari's name is changed to Meshua Jumeirah's original name in the Japanese variant for the English dub.
Along the way the pair encounters hypnotic snake Kaa Sterling Holloway , an army of elephants, and, much to Bagheera's dismay, Baloo the bear Phil Harris , a lovable "jungle bum" who temps Mowgli with his laid-back, "Bare Necessities" life. But when the two ditch Bagheera, life isn't all fun and games. Crazy orangutans including their jazzy king, Louis Prima run off with Mowgli and Shere Khan is hot on his trail. It'll take the unlikely team of Bagheera and Baloo to keep Mowgli safe.

Kipling's classic story has been thoroughly Disney-fied, but it remains a lively and engrossing adventure with jaunty animation and delightful jazz-inspired songs. The very catchy tunes and expert voice cast deliver lots of laughs. It's justifiably considered a classic despite the modest animation, which is pleasant but relatively streamlined in comparison to earlier Disney masterpieces.
