The anime adaptation of Mowgli's story from the Jungle Book by Joseph Rudyard Kipling

An explorer and his wife are killed in the jungle. Their baby son, Mowgli, is raised by wolves, and befriends Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther, who teach him the Laws of the Jungle. Rejected by local humans, who see him as a demon, Mowgli prefers to dwell in the forest, where he must outwit the evil tiger Shere Khan. Eventually, after conflict between the humans and the animals, Mowgli defeats Shere Khan and gets to meet the beautiful human girl he has worshipped from afar for so long, leaving behind his jungle friends as he returns to the world from which he came. An anime adaptation likely to remain dwarfed by the earlier Disney classic, this version updates Rudyard Kipling's novel for the 20th century-including planes, for example, understandably absent from the original. Another old story of a human boy reared by animals was adapted as Ta-chan: King of the Jungle.
