Plot[ edit ] The adventures of Mowgli, a human foundling raised by Akela's wolf pack, and his best friends, fatherly bear Baloo and playful panther Bagheera.
They live in the Indian jungle where many dangers lurk, such as the mighty Bengal tiger Shere Khan. The inquisitive Mowgli often gets himself into trouble and can't resist helping animals in danger or solving other problems Main characters[ edit ] Mowgli voiced by Emma Tate - A young Man-cub raised by wolves in the jungle, as the adoptive son of Daruka and Raksha, and the brother of Lali and Bala.
He keeps a tiger claw which he as a pendant which he took in a battle from Shere Khan. Mowgli is not depicted as naked , as in the book. Bagheera voiced by Sam Gold - A black panther. He is Mowgli's best friend. Unlike his counterpart in the Disney film, Bagheera is not as wise or strict as in the book. Most animals in the jungle never dare to step in the way of the panther. He often fights Shere Khan to save Mow. Baloo voiced by Jimmy Hibbert - A brown bear.
In the series, he is bipedal, wears glasses and he is Mowgli's mentor. Baloo likes to tell stories of the jungle. Kaa voiced by Joseph J.
Terry - An Indian rock python. Like in the book, he is sort of friends with Mowgli, Bagheera, and Baloo, yet moody and feared. Daruka voiced by Aaron Albertus - The adoptive father of Mowgli. Although Mowgli usually lives with Baloo and Bagheera, he visits Daruka's family sometimes. Raksha - The adoptive mother of Mowgli. Lali - The daughter of Daruka and Raksha.
Bala - The son of Daruka and Raksha. Villains[ edit ] Shere Khan voiced by David Holt - A man-eating Bengal tiger who is the main antagonist of the series. In the French version of the show, Akru was actually female and Mowgli's adoptive sister; this later became a problem when the character becomes mates with Maki, and due to his voice actor being a woman, many mistook Sura as female in the English version initially. Sura's efforts to court Lala are, at first, incorrect, but in Episode 24, he proves his worthiness to her by keeping a trio of crocodiles away from her long enough for Baloo to finish them.
In the ninth episode, Akru was briefly exiled from the pack, but re-welcomed after Mowgli conjures a remedy to ease his injuries. Sura becomes a father of two cubs, making Akru and Mowgli uncles.
Vermillion - Lala's father and Alexander's great friend. He competes with Alexander to be the next leader of the pack, when his father, Akela, chooses to step down. He acquires a scar on his left eye afterwards. His fur is red in color. It is later revealed that they had also fought previously to decide which one would marry Luri.
He later moves away, apparently leaving his daughter behind, and becomes the leader of a pack of wolves in a rocky desert area. Bacchus - A fat wolf who can never hunt properly. He is more fitted to babysitting the wolf cubs. He appears more often in the first half of the series, and is occasionally used for comic relief.
He is mentioned later on however, when everyone was discussing the topic of a new leader one of the wolves said Bacchus should lead the pack, much to some of the other wolves' dismay , though no further mention of him occurs after that. Fargas - An old wolf who was saved by Alexander from a pack of dholes.
His fur is pale blue or fully white.
He steals food from the pack's storage in his first few appearances due to apparently being brainwashed by demons; he soon leaves on a journey after being purified by Bagheera, and has not returned since. Lala - Vermillion's daughter and Akela's granddaughter. She has orange fur, though slightly lighter than her father's.
She acts like a tomboy early in the series, and refuses to accept Mowgli as a member of the pack. Later in the series, she matures and becomes more fond of Mowgli, even developing a crush on him ep; "Mowgli Has a Sweetheart". She soon switches to Sura when he saves her from a trio of crocs. By the end of the series, she and Sura are the parents of two cubs, one of whom is given the name Rusty in the English dub.
He is navy blue in colour. Sandah hates the humans after they killed his sister, Dulia and resents Mowgli for being a human. He eventually comes to terms with him, and even though he leaves with Vermillion and his pack, he and Mowgli appear to share a close camaraderie. Sandah seems to be a lieutenant, or beta wolf, to Vermillion.
Certain translations portray him as female. Maki - A golden-yellow and cream, female wolf and Akru's mate. Maki is a great singer and, at one point, she's seen giving singing lessons to Akru.
She is a minor character and appears very late in the series. In the German version she was actually male, due to the fact that Akru was female in that version of the show. She still retained her feminine looks though.
Kichi - Mowgli's red panda friend. His parents are killed by humans.
After Mowgli accuses Kichi of causing trouble which he unintentionally does and being a nuisance, he has a harder time fitting in with the new crowd due to already being an outsider and decides to get on the wrong foot.
But his friendship with Mowgli would be put to the test when they're prompted to work together. Later in the series he lives together with Mowgli in his hut. In the English version, Kichi is referred to as a male. In the German version, Kichi is called Kiki. The confusion is due to the fact that the character was voiced by a woman in the Japanese version, a common practice in animation voice work for younger or cute characters.
He exhibits a similar protection towards her and her family as he did to the English family in the original short story, and extends this protective behavior to Mowgli. Rikki-Tikki kills Buldeo's pet Indian cobra after it tries to attack Mowgli in the middle of the night and later alerts Mowgli that Jumeirah and her family have been holed up by the villagers.
Hathi - The great Indian elephant who serves as the ruler of the whole forest of Seeonee. He is usually seen accompanied by his two sons. Hathi first appeared in the series proclaiming the Water Truce at the Peace Rock during a drought and told the animals the story of How Fear Came.
Hathi shows up occasionally afterwards, appearing once to help drive Grizzle away, another time to help raze the village, again to show Mowgli the Elephant Dance, and one final time in the series finale when the animals bid Mowgli farewell. Chil - A Brahminy kite who served as the messenger for Akela's pack and Hathi. Linda - A benevolent English girl although in the American dub, neither her nor her dad speak with English accents who adopts Bagheera as a cab and keeps as a pet.
Bagheera tells Mowgli a story about her and we meet her through flashback sequences. She has a love for not just any animal, but him especially it seems. She also seems to have a grand understanding of animals through some connection.
When her father attempts to whip Bagheera while Linda gives the cat milk, she defends him by shielding him and is slightly injured when he accidentally whips her instead, when she gets in the way.
When her father confronts her and Bagheera again and tries shooting him, Linda makes another attempt to protect him by letting him out of his cage and setting him free. As he escapes to safety, she leaps in front of her father and takes the bullets; her exact fate is unknown, as Bagheera never found out if she survived or not.
Mowgli isn't sure whether he can trust him at first because of all the stories and reputation about humans, and their history with animals, but comes to accepting Bougi's offer to help when he heals him and gives him food. He turns out to be genuinely kind-hearted. Bougi is later slashed in the back by Shere Khan, defending Mowgli and Meshua from the tiger but eventually recovers and survives. Bougi's name in the English adaptation is Rahhar.
When the family first meet Mowgli, Mari mistakes Mowgli for her son Keshnu, but despite the fact that it's not really him, she still treats him as if he were one of her own and he grows on her instantly. She comes to love Mowgli so much so that she desperately wishes and prefers that he not take on Shere Khan.
Mari's name is changed to Meshua Jumeirah's original name in the Japanese variant for the English dub. Like the other family members, he eats up Mowgli right away.
When the family is kidnapped and held captive, Mowgli rescues them and helps them escape, one way of which is by saving them from the other villagers and he has his animal friends guide them to another town when the animals destroy the residents' homes. Later, in the middle of their trek, Nil succumbs to pneumonia. Nil is renamed Sanjay in the English translation. Her grandfather originally found Mowgli when the boy was on his own from his wolf pack, saying the boy reminded him of his grandson. Though Mowgli chooses to remain in the jungle at this time, he does meet his human friend later, along with Meshua.
Meshua's family later adopt Mowgli into their family as their new son, since their other son had died. Her name is Jumeirah in the English version. Villains[ edit ] Shere Khan - A Bengal tiger who is the main antagonist of the series. Cruel and cunning, rebellious and menacing, he violates many Laws of the Jungle including eating humans, eating the human's cattle, and over-hunting.
He's also fearless of most things except that he's a pyrophobe or one who fears fire , he's frightened by guns and he withdraws when it comes to Hathi or Kaa taking action. His loathing for humans is part of a history that goes back to his first ancestor's encounter with one. The injury on his right hind leg is dealt by Alexander in a fight. In the last showdown, Mowgli defeats and slays Shere Khan by stabbing him in his heart.
Tabaqui - Shere Khan's sidekick. Unlike the other versions of Jungle Book, he is a bungling striped hyena yet he is still referred to as a jackal as he was in the original story who never seems to get anything right. He's also notorious for being idle, greedy, incompetent, conniving, dimwitted, dastardly and chatty. Later, he and another hyena meet their defeat when Mowgli and Shere Khan go against each other once more and both hyenas are gored by water buffaloes.
It is unknown if they died from being gored or merely fainted and later fled the scene. They also work for the tiger. Louis and the other monkeys constantly wreak havoc in the jungle and heckle the denizens. They are based on the Bandar-log from the stories.
