...the characters, music, and animation more than make up for any shortcomings, and the result is pleasant entertainment for everyone.

Whatever it lacks in heroic reach it more than makes up for in sociable personality and devastatingly expressive animation from the Disney masters, making it an underground classic that's impressively stood the test of time.

It's also got great knockabout visual gags, mercifully little cutey-poo sentiment, and reasonable songs.

I'll never get that "Bear Necessities" song out of my head, ever. I guess that's a testament to the movie.

The Jungle Book isn't without its rough spots, but on the whole it's fully deserving of its place in the Disney canon.

February 28, 2003 uneven episode in the Disney legacy, without much shape and substance beyond the concept of jumping from one scene to the next in order to get to the next musical number.

The Jungle Book is fun, cheerful animation; high on hummable songs and comedy; and low on scary moments.
