"The jungle V.I.P."
on August 12, 2015
These clamshell-cased Disney videotapes are of fine quality.
They have Hi-Fi audio and are recorded at SP speed.
The ones I own are still working so many years later.
THE JUNGLE BOOK was the last movie that Walt Disney directly oversaw. The finished picture in no way resembles Rudyard Kipling's original story, as Disney felt this was too dark for a cartoon. With top notch songs like "The Bear Necessities" and "I Wanna Be Like You," talented performers and animation that was part Xerox, part hand drawn, "The Jungle Book" is a fitting career closer from the greatest name in family motion picture entertainment, Walt Disney.
This movie is also available on DVD.
After "Jungle Book," the next Disney animated feature was THE ARISTOCATS (1970).
Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.

JUNGLE BOOK TRIVIA--
The Beatles were to record voiceovers for "The Vultures," but conflicting schedules made it impossible.
The song "Trust in Me," originally called "Sands of Time," was almost used in MARY POPPINS (1964).
The elephant Winifred is the only female with dialogue.
According to Kipling's widow, the name "Mowgli" is actually pronounced "MAU-glee."
"Baloo" means "bear" in Hindi.
