Once upon a time, Bagheera the black panther finds an abandoned human baby in the jungle. She untrusted him to a family of wolves. For ten years, the "little man" named Mowgli grows peacefully among his wolf cub brothers. But the whole jungle trembles when Shere Khan the man-eating tiger comes back. In order to protect Mowgli, the wolf pack asks Bagheera to take him to the nearest human village. The two friends start a long journey through the jungle where they meet Kaa the snake hypnotist, the Colonel Hathi's elephant squadron, King Louie and his troop of monkeys and the unforgettable Baloo.
