The Jungle Book (1967)
Happy Golden Globes day! This is the last film that Walt Disney himself worked on before his death in 1966. It has catchy music and fun characters, including Baloo the Bear and King Louie (voiced by the jazz legend Louis Prima) as well as the villainous Shere Khan and Kaa the snake. Kaa is voiced by Sterling Holloway, who was also the voice of Winnie the Pooh and let me tell you - it's really disturbing to hear Pooh's voice coming out of the mouth of a giant man-eating python. Look for an appearance by a quartet of vultures who are curiously reminiscent of a certain Fab Foursome from Britain. Also appearing is Phil Harris as Baloo - my favorite Disney voice actor. And what is Bambi's mom doing in India?
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
