Great childhood movie.

It may have nothing to do with the original book and the characters aren't really developed, but the story is still fun and engaging, the characters still have a likable personality and the animation is as great as Disney's animation gets.

Le Livre de la Jungle a pour lui des chansons entraînantes, des personnages sympathiques et des décors vraiment jolis. Malheureusement, Wolfgang Reitherman n'en fait pas grand chose. En effet, le film est un assemblage de scénettes pas forcément très intéressantes, mais plutôt réussies dans leur ensemble. Mais cela ne fait pas un film et l'ennui pointe très vite le bout de son nez devant Le Livre de la Jungle. Rien ne se passe avant le troisième acte et tout va beaucoup trop vite à ce moment-là. Il n'y a rien de touchant, il est difficile de s'attacher à Mowgli. C'est très dommage et cela rappelle la triste époque où les Disney étaient plus connus pour leurs chansons que pour les films en tant que tels (bonjour La Petite Sirène).

Thoroughly enjoyable animated adaptation of the Kipling story about a young boy who grows up in the jungle and befriends other animals. Some jazzy tunes including 'Bear Necessities'

I remember as a kid, I would watch it at least 5 times a week, the songs were cache, the characters are beautifully developed, including Shere Khan who is my favorite villain.

The songs remain as catchy as ever, and this film stands as a tribute to the enduring appeal of some of the best work of Walt Disney himself.

An ok film, just wished it was more closer to the book.

The story doesn't have nearly as much substance as the original Rudyard Kipling novel, and the animation is only kind of decent, but at least a good deal of the characters and songs are genuinely enjoyable to sit through.

This is a 1976 classic Disney movie that is a funny movie for kids and family to enjoy, the singing in this movie was good so see this classic!

Hardly one of Disney's greatest, but a vibrant and memorable one at that.

161027: Had to refresh my memory regarding this film after seeing the 2016 version. Considering its release date, this film still has fantastic art and, what I will now call, a decent story. Decent only because the 2016 film stole my heart...and has a story that appeals more to my nature. Though similar, the each film has a totally different outcome. Personally, I like that Mowgli who wants to stay in the jungle and is much better equipped to do so. The 1967 Mowgli suffers from tombstone courage, an annoying trait that would not result in this film's happy ending. But, times have changed and with that I have changed as well. Look forward to having the 2016 Blu-Ray sitting next to this DVD. Both are worth having in the collection.

Someone give that boy some nipples. Anyway, this movie is just fine. It's really meh. Shere Khan is the only great part of this movie. Milt Kahl is kind of a legend.

One of the films of my childhood, I cannot give it a different mark, although when I rewatched yesterday after maybe ten years I still found it an incredible movie but maybe only for small children.

Untouchable interpretation.

As Walt's last film, The Jungle Book was very good! The characters are very likable and the songs are catchy.

After a mediocre effort with the The Sword in the Stone, the studio gets back on track here with what might be the best Disney film of the pre-Renaissance era. Tackling Rudyard Kipling's Mowgli stories, the producers ventured out of their comfort zone and brought the India-based jungle tale to life with an end product that is pure, unrequited revelry. From instantly admirable characters from the big oaf Baloo and the rambunctious colonel Hathi and his patrol. Excellent voice acting and original designs give these animals some life, even given its low detailed animation. The Jungle Book also boasts some delightful, jazzy tunes courtesy of the Sherman Brothers (masterminds behind most of Disney's older musical hits) and it's hard not to tap your foot and sing along to songs like the scat-jam "I Wanna' Be like You".

The film is a total masterpiece in childhood and adulthood. The songs are catchy and fun, the animation is smooth and clean, the characters & villains are charming and intelligent, and the ending is a passionate conclusion to Mowgli meeting the love of his life as he follows the girl to the man village & this ending is also a magical & peaceful final frontier to Walt Disney flying to the heavens.

Really great classic. The characters were the best and it's a fun move to sing along to.
