Life is a spinning wheel,

it has been said.

With each spoke, a tale to be told.

So keep silence along the banks,

and I will tell you one of these tales.

A story as enchanting as

the jungle itself.

It is about pride and

power and treasure...

and about fangs and claws and talons.

But mostly, it is about love.

My new command was

at the edge of the world,

surrounded by a million miles of jungle.

With me was my daughter, Katherine,

whom everyone called Kitty.

Leading us was an Indian guide...

whose son was called Mowgli.

From the moment they were born,

Mowgli and Kitty had a common bond,

for both of their mothers had left

this world while bringing them into it.

Also with us was my good friend,

Dr. Julius Plumford,

who was to be our surgeon.

Oh, look at that.

Damned elephant!

Pull yourself together!

Shere Khan.

All right.That's enough.

That's enough!

I say, could somebody

possibly grab this elephant?

Sorry to bother you.

And as surely as a tiger

named Shere Khan...

was to be the jungle's royal keeper,

Mowgli was destined to become its lord.

Well done, Mowgli.

Buldeo, what on earth's going on?

Shere Khan!

He's returning!

- Shere? A tiger?

- Shere Khan, king of tigers!

He's angry because these men with

their guns have gone into his jungle...

and killed more than they can eat.

What is a tiger caring,

a few animals here or there?

Would you allow someone to break

into your house and steal your food?

These three broke the jungle law.

Shere Khan knows it.

We best beware.

All right.

What is this?

Baloo.

- And in English?

- Bear.

Good.

I'll bet you can't tell me what this is.

Bagheera.

Panther?

Very good.

And who do you think this is?

- That's me!

- You? Shere Khan?

The holy man say I'm half a tiger.

You are half a tiger?

He say when I see Shere Khan

and show no fear,

then I be whole tiger.

Where did you see

this holy man, Mowgli?

In my dreams.

No.

Help!

Tiger.! Tiger attack.!

Geoffrey, what in God's

name is going on?

A tiger!

I think it got Claibourne!

Claibourne? Right.

I'll see to him.

Stay here, Mowgli!

Bapu?

Damn!

Get him out of the way!

Bapu.! Bapu.!

Shere Khan!

Ha! Shoot him, Buldeo! Ha!

God! Mowgli!

Mowgli!

Mowgli!

Got you!

Damn it! Damn it!

Get out of my way!

Out of my way!

Oh, my God! The boy!

Where's Mowgli, Father?

He's gone, Kitty.

The boy is gone.

Bapu?

Bapu?

Bapu?

Bapu?

Bapu? Bapu?

Bagheera.

Shere Khan.

Baloo?

Keep up, ladies, keep up!

Now, who can tell me what kind

of monkey that is over there?

Nevermind, nevermind. Um...

What about those over there?

Who can name those? You see them?

Anybody?

Kitty!

Yes, Doctor?

Perhaps you can name the primates

that we are a bout to paint.

That one there is a macaque,

those two are rhesus,

and the bunch up there are langurs.

Well, at least I've taught

somebody something.

Oh, my goodness! There's a

spider-monkey with a mustache!

- Oh, where?

- Where?

He's got a white hat on

and a linen suit.

Now, this bridge...

separates mankind from

the animal kingdom.

To cross over there is

to take your life in your hands.

You see this sign?

It says, " Danger:

" To cross this bridge

is to enter the black jungle,

the jungle of death."

- Actually, Doctor,

- Hmm?

All the sign says is,

" Beware, this bridge is old."

It's a very literal translation, Kitty.

Come on, ladies.

We'll do our painting down there.

- I dare you to cross it.

- I would never.

- Neither would I.

- Well, I certainly wouldn't.

I would.

Why am I not surprised?

Hello.

Hello?

Hello?

He'll kill you.
