Editorial Reviews

In the yellow hues of the African plains, hunting was easy for the leopard, whose light coat served as camouflage. When all the animals moved away, the hungry leopard had to follow them to the striped, splotchy, spotted forest. But he didn't stand a chance of survival unless, of course, he acquired spots himself. Rich in language and subtle humor, this inspired adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling classic comes alive with the gentle sounds of South African a cappella harmonies. Ages 5 and up.

I bought this for my kids because I remember the music so fondly from when I was a child. The video quality is just ok, and it was anything but easy to play it at all. I have a new mac, but the video wouldn't play in chrome, safari, and wouldn't work on my new android phone, and there's no android video app on the nexus player for our tv... so you have to install amazon underground on an android phone and then allow untrusted apps, then install the actual amazon video amazon app via amazon underground... this is the reason people pirate. All this for a sub-dvd quality viewing.

I love the music and narration from this content. The DRM experience here... sucked. Buy the DVD instead.

This is a great video for kids to wind down and snuggle. I loved these videos as a kids and so glad they are back for my kids to enjoy. I wish they would make more cartoons like this, where kids can take time to enjoy the art, music and story without to much commotion.

I used to have this story as a Windows 95 computer game, but now that I'm using Windows 8, I can't go back and play it again for old times' sake like I want to. This movie is the perfect solution to my wish for a walk down memory lane. I adore the music the Ladysmith Black Mambazo performed for the game, the audiobook and the movie, and Danny Glover's narration makes this story every bit as lovable as it was meant to be when Rudyard Kipling first wrote it.

In summary, I am so glad I found this again. Thank you, Amazon!

Danny Glover was an excellent choice for reader, paired with Ladysmith, really brings to life a classic story to get a new generation of kids into Kipling's "How so" stories.

This reminds me of the children's stories from my childhood. The characters are memorable and fun. The language is ticklish and festive..

Still have the books but no 8-track tape player. Glad to get this because now I can use with grandchildren.
