Ranjan, hush. It's starting.
Come, children. Come watch.
Mowgli, tell us your story.
I never knew where I came from, but I always knew where I belonged.
This is me and Bagheera, the panther who found me in the jungle.
He's a good friend of mine.
But my best friend of all was good old Papa Bear.
Man, we had some crazy times together.
And when the monkeys grabbed me, things got really crazy.
Go, Papa Bear!
Then, I came face to face with the meanest, scariest tiger in the whole jungle.
You stay away from Mowgli, you mean, old tiger.
Or I'll tie some fire to your tail and burn your butt!
I got him, Mowgli! Did you see? I got him.
You sure did, Ranjan, but it's gonna be kind of hard to finish the story now.
But we all know how it ends.
Shanti blinks her big, beautiful brown eyes at you, and you followed her into our village.
I did not.
Something was in my eye. Both of them?
Well, you were so ugly you made my eyes water.
Well, you... Now, now.
We give thanks for Shanti's beautiful brown eyes.
Without them, Mowgli would never have found his way into our lives.
Come to think of it, you used the same trick on me.
And you still fall for it.
Thank you for a wonderful story, Mowgli.
Good night, Mowgli.
Watch out for Shere Khan on your way home.
You and your stories.
Everyone knows tigers don't come into the village.
Tigers go wherever they want!
Good night, boys.
Tomorrow's gonna be so great.
What happens tomorrow?
Well, then, you will need plenty of rest for doing nothing tomorrow.
Off to bed.
We never get to stay up late.
Even wild beasts need their sleep.
Help! Ferocious tiger!
Good night, my little wild thing.
Good night, Mowgli.
Why do you always call him "Sir"?
His name's "Pa. "
Come on, Mowgli! Wake up, it's morning!
You said we would go to... Ranjan! Ranjan!
Do you wanna wake up the whole village?
When does the tiger roar?
I don't know.
After he catches his prey.
Let's go get our prey.
Where are you going so early?
To do our chores? Yeah!
Not without breakfast, you aren't.
That's okay. We're not hungry. Gotta go!
Boys, where are you going? To do our chores!
Bye, Papa! See you later!
Remember, don't cross the river!
You can take the boy out of the jungle...
But you can't take the jungle out of the boy.
That's what worries me.
What are you doing here? Getting water.
What are you doing here?
I'm on the lookout for danger.
There's no danger around here.
Well, keep this just between us?
Yesterday, I saw tiger tracks.
Tiger tracks? Right.
It's Shere Khan.
I hear he's looking for me, seeking his bloodthirsty revenge.
So keep your ears open and always watch your back, or the last thing you'll ever hear is...
When does the tiger roar?
You're horrible! Horrible, stinky boys!
Come on, Ranjan. He's a bad influence.
Now, don't move.
That wasn't very nice, you know.
Stop that. You're not a jungle boy.
Why are you so scared of the jungle?
Because it's dangerous.
Dangerous? But Mowgli says...
You shouldn't listen to everything Mowgli says.
But I thought you liked Mowgli.
Well, I do. I like Mowgli.
You left this at the river.
She's in a bad mood.
Hey, Ranjan, you want to see a little trick I learned in the jungle?
That's a pretty good trick.
Well, here's a little trick I learned right here at home.
That's a neater trick.
Like I said, Ranjan, don't listen to him.
She's right, Ranjan, don't listen to me.
Listen to the jungle.
Can you hear it?
And when you hear that rhythm, you get a crazy feeling inside.
That morning sun peeks over the mountains And all the rhinos rub their eyes When they hear Hear what?
Hear the jungle rhythm Those birds are Tap-tap-tapping the tree trunks The busy bee hums as he flies Loud and clear To the jungle rhythm Now, you can hightail it out of the jungle But it never leaves your heart First you feel that beat start bubbling under Then you hear the tom toms loud as thunder It's moving me!
Sounds a lot like being free When you feel Feel the jungle rhythm Yeah, guys.
Feel the jungle rhythm Come on, Shanti!
Can't do without rhythm And when it fills the air Animals everywhere join in the dance Hey, give me that!
You'll dance along with 'em Feelin' it steal your soul We'll stomp our paws Flap our wings Maybe do one or two crazy things Yeah, that's it!
Shanti! Try this.
There we go. No.
Take a look. Perfect.
Check out those chat-chat-chattering monkeys Swinging through the banyan trees Two by two Two by two To the jungle rhythm Sounds like a wolf pack way in the distance Singing pretty harmonies
To the jungle rhythm Yeah!
Yeah, that's it!
Now, you can hightail it out of the jungle But it never leaves your heart First you feel that beat start bubbling under Then you hear the tom toms loud as thunder It's moving me!
Sounds a lot like being free When I feel When I feel When I feel When I feel Feel the jungle rhythm Wait, wait, stop. You're crossing the river.
Mowgli, you can't go in the jungle!
It's too dangerous! Mowgli!
Shanti, what is it?
Children, come inside this instant, all of you!
That includes you!
I am very disappointed in you.
You put everyone in danger.
You know that you're not allowed to cross the river, and yet you deliberately disobeyed me.
But I... No, Mowgli.
The jungle is a dangerous place.
I should know.
You are confined to your room without dinner.
That should give you plenty of time to think about what you've done.
Mowgli, I was only trying to...
You can hightail it out of the jungle
But it never leaves your heart
Look for the bare necessities The simple bare necessities Forget about your worries and your strife Yeah, I mean the...
That bring the bare necessities of life Now, that's more like it!
Look at you!
Growing like a proverbial weed.
Let's see if you still got it.
Take it away, Little Britches.
I said, take it away!
This ain't gonna work. You just ain't Mowgli.
I guess I gotta get used to singing solo.
He's just not getting over that...
No, not again!
Get out of here!
Now, don't worry. I'll take care of it.
Bagheera. How's it wagging?
This has to stop.
You can't keep trying to take Mowgli from the man-village.
The boy's future lies with his own kind.
His future can wait.
I miss my bear cub.
It's not safe for him in the jungle.
You know Shere Khan is looking for Mowgli.
Just let Shere Khan try something.
We handled old Stripes once. We'll do it again.
Baloo, don't push your luck.
Out of the way, Baghee. You're not going near the village!
That's it! Hathi! Plan B!
Hup, two, three, four!
Keep it up, two, three, four!
Now, remember, men, our objective is full and complete containment.
Prepare for Operation...
Stop that Bear?
Very good, son! Yes.
Prepare for Operation Stop that Bear!
By the ranks or single file Over every jungle mile Run, Baghee! You're in the parade ground.
No, please, stop!
I told you, Baloo, there's no way we're letting you near the man-village.
You ain't gonna stop me now, Baghee.
Look out below!
Search the water!
Follow me. This way.
Nothing here, sir.
Check over there!
I've got him, Colonel!
Confound it, soldier!
That's a fish!
Disgrace to the uniform.
This log can't possibly support your weight!
Why, my dear boy, back in '88 in service to the Crown, I found myself straddling a...
No, not again.
Well, they don't make trees like they used to.
Got him! Got him right here.
Disguised as a panther, Baloo.
It's me, Hathi! Put me down!
Keep searching, men. Couldn't have gone far!
Who are we looking for, anyway? Confound it, man!
Don't turn me in, little guy. I just want to see my bear cub.
I won't. I miss Mowgli, too.
This way, quick!
Hey, thanks, kid. You're all right.
Say, fellas, look who's coming. That's Shere Khan.
What we gonna do? Don't start that again.
Lucky. Hey, Lucky.
That's the one we told you about, Shere Khan.
Shere Khan. You don't say.
Hey, watch this, watch this. I got one for you. Check this out.
Hey, hey! Look at me! Look at me!
I'm Shere Khan, and me tiger tush has been torched.
Ask me if I could whoop that tiger. Go on, go on, ask me.
Can you whoop that tiger?
I Shere Khan.
Did you get it? Did you get it?
Save me! Save me!
I've been outwitted by 40 pounds of scrawny man-cub.
I'm cracking myself up here.
I don't know how I do it.
Mind if I drop in?
Boy, am I glad to see you! What are you doing here?
What am I doing here?
Feeling right for the first time in a while, that's what.
Hey, kid, show me you can still fight like a bear.
Little Britches, you lost your touch.
I've got something for you.
Mowgli, it's me.
Don't be mad.
I get grounded all the time.
Mowgli, I'm sorry you got in trouble.
Come on, man-cub, show yourself.
Come on! Come on!
Wait. No! No!
Come on, stick and move.
Help! Wild animal!
Wild animal? Where? Come on, let's get outta here.
What? What is it?
What's that bear doing here?
There's a wild animal in the village.
What is the matter?
There he is! There's a tiger!
Where are you going?
No, come back! Come back! You're going the wrong way.
Wow, a tiger!
Don't let him get away!
We gotta get out of here.
Shanti, get indoors!
No, no, no, he's over... No!
Shanti, wait for me!
Come on, come on. Follow me! Follow me!
Hold on, Mowgli!
Where are you?
Mowgli! They must be in the jungle.
What a weird scene. Is that place always like that?
You don't know the half of it. That village was terrible.
All you ever hear is rules, rules, rules and work, work, work.
Kid. Watch your language.
That's all they do! Washing, dressing...
Man, I'm tired just listening to it.
Sounds like they're kinda screwy over there.
I don't want to talk about it.
Who's Shanti? She's just a girl from the village.
Now, hold on.
Not the one that lured you into that village in the first place.
Yep, that's the one.
I knew it, I knew it. I knew she was trouble.
I even tried bringing her to the jungle, and she got me in trouble.
I just wanted her to see how much fun we have.
And she got you into trouble for that?
She thinks the jungle is a scary place.
Where'd she get that crazy idea? You got me.
Do my snake eyes deceive me?
It's the succulent man-cub.
Well, you're with me now, kid.
Forget that girl. You're better off without her.
You got everything you need right here.
And me, I've got my old singin' partner back.
Then hit it, Papa Bear.
Look for the bare necessities The simple bare necessities Forget about your worries and your strife I mean the bare necessities Old Mother Nature's recipes That bring the bare necessities of life Wherever I wander Where you goin'?
Wherever I roam Oh, yeah.
I couldn't be fonder of my big home The bees are buzzing in the tree To make some honey just for me When you look under the rocks and plants Take a glance at the fancy ants And maybe try a few Thanks, Baloo.
The bare necessities of life will come to you They'll come to you Baloo.
I don't ever want to see that girl or that village again.
Well, of course you don't.
It's just us bears from here on in.
Hey, you remember everything I learned ya?
You bet I do, Papa Bear.
Now, when you pick a pawpaw Or a prickly pear And you pick a raw paw Well, next time beware Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw When you pick a pear try to use the claw But you don't need to use the claw When you pick a pair of the big pawpaw Have I given you a clue?
The bare necessities of life will come to you They'll come to you They'll come to me?
I so despise these song-and-dance routines.
Is that you?
He's gotta be here somewhere.
I shall never again associate with man-cubs.
Where could he be?
Why, the little...
Who is it?
Might I be of some assistance?
Are you lost, little one?
Are you hungry?
Bad snake! Bad snake!
Ranjan? What are you doing here?
You leave Shanti alone!
Okay, Ranjan. I think he's had enough.
You're not getting away that easy.
Ranjan, what are you doing?
You're not supposed to be here. We have to get you home right now.
No! Mowgli's in trouble, and we're going to find him.
I can smell him.
He's this way.
Okay, but stay close.
We don't want to run into any more scary animals.
Anyone I know?
Did I say man-cub?
Well, well, I... I... You know...
I'd love to stay and shoot the breeze and all, but...
What's your hurry?
No reason. I... I...
Where is he?
The man-cub Mowgli.
I know you know.
Well, but I... I don't.
Please don't insult my intelligence. It makes me irritable.
He's not in the village.
I know where he isn't.
Now, tell me where he is.
Well, he's... He's... He's...
The swamp! He's at the swamp, yes.
Yes. Trust in me.
He'd better be, for your sake.
He is, he is!
I'd take you there myself, but I'm afraid I'd slow you down, indigestion and all.
What is... What on earth?
Colonel Hathi! Take cover!
No! Not again.
Colonel Hathi, what is the meaning of this?
Man is in the jungle!
What does he want?
Think they'll come out?
I think they're over here.
Perhaps I was too harsh with the boy.
Don't worry. We'll find them.
Children, can you hear me?
Almost got it, Baloo.
Them primo mangos, always the hardest to get.
This is the life.
Hey, check this out.
Hey, not bad. Where'd you learn to do that?
Shanti showed me.
I... No, I... I said wanti.
I wanti another mango.
No, no, no, that's not what you said. You said Shanti.
No, I didn't.
Yes, you did. No, I didn't.
Yep. I heard it.
You know what? Who cares about Shanti?
Because it's just a stupid trick, right?
You don't need her, kid. You're with old Baloo now.
What are you laughing at?
What are you doin' out here, Baghee?
Haven't you heard?
Man is in the jungle.
What do they want?
They're searching for Mowgli.
I thought that perhaps maybe you have seen the boy.
Well, you know his future is in that village.
I just wish I knew where he was.
Yeah. Sorry. Man, wish I could help you out, Baghee.
Enough games, Baloo. Now give me the boy.
Baghee, Baghee, Baghee, Baghee. I can explain.
I can explain. I...
Can explain, but I don't have to, 'cause you can plainly see Mowgli is not here.
I'm all alone.
I know he's around here somewhere, and he can't hide forever.
Well, he won't get past you, Baghee.
Kid, where'd you go?
What are you tryin' to do? Scare the tick out of my ticker?
The whole village looking for me?
We can't let nobody see you.
I thought they were mad.
We gotta lay low, hunker down, hibernate, like...
They must really miss me.
I wonder if Shanti's with them.
You definitely don't want her to find you.
We can't let anyone find us, especially that girl.
Come on, Baloo. We gotta get moving. Lay low, hunker down, hibernate, like.
Now, Mowgli, what if that girl tracks us down?
What are you gonna do?
Then you're gonna have to scare her.
Scare her? Has the milk run out of your coconut?
No, she's terrified of wild animals.
In case you haven't noticed, kid, I'm no wild animal.
Except at parties.
I suppose I'm more of a honey bear.
You can do it, Baloo.
You're the one that taught me, remember?
You scrunch up your eyes like this, and show your teeth like this, and roar like this...
No, no, no, no. Like you mean it.
Do you want that girl to take me back to the village?
Yeah, man! That was great.
Well, I don't know.
Trust me. That'll do it.
Well, in that case, Mowgli, consider that girl scarified.
Thanks, Papa Bear.
Anything for my Little Britches.
Okay, let's skedaddle.
Now, don't you worry.
I got a place downriver. It's the perfect hideout.
Real quiet, huh?
You want quiet, go back to that man-village.
This place is happenin'.
Okay, here's the village. We crossed the river...
Ranjan, be careful.
Okay, we went right.
No, no, no, no. Left, left, I mean.
Right. No, left, then right, and...
This jungle all looks the same!
Ranjan, what's that?
Mowgli? He must've been here.
Or some animal with really sharp claws.
That snake lied to me.
Now, don't take it out on the water just because you don't like the reflection.
I mean, not everyone can be born with such great looks.
You let that tiger get his claws on you, and you won't be so good-looking.
What, that pussycat? He's harmless. Watch this.
What's the matter, Stripes?
Man-cub got your tongue?
Lucky, let's find something to do somewhere else.
No, no, no, no. Hang on, fellas. I got another one.
How many men does it take to whoop a tiger?
None. A little kid could do it all by himself.
Come on, Lucky, let's go. Come on, Lucky, let's go.
In fact, we heard that kid is right here in the jungle.
Right under your whiskers.
I heard he's headed back to the village.
Wrong again, kitty.
No, Lucky, keep your gob shut.
No, they say he's headed downriver with a bear.
Downriver, you say?
Don't listen to him.
Yeah, he's new around here. He don't know anything.
On the contrary, he seems to know quite a lot.
Hey, hold on, hot pants! Where's the fire?
Isn't it ironic that your name is Lucky?
Come on, lads! This way! Let's get out!
This is the perfect hideout? This is King Louie's place.
Was, kid, was. He's splitsville.
Now, me and the monkeys have turned it into the greatest secret hideout ever.
Excuse me. Comin' through. Hey, Baloo!
Good to see you back again, man.
Everybody knows about it.
But if everybody knows about it, how can it be a secret?
I mean, everybody who's anybody.
Nobody who's nobody don't know nothin' about no place that everybody who's anybody knows about, you dig?
My head hurts.
Hey, turn the thinker off for a minute and just dive in.
Step aside, and I'll show you what a real rug-cutter can do.
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the boss of bop, the jack ofjive, the jungle cat who's really gonna keep it alive.
Get ready to stir it up and serve it up.
I'm talkin' about, Baloo is in the house!
Hey, cats, all right!
When we start to move Hey, honey, it ain't no joke We got a savage groove We didn't learn from human folk No human folk
'Scuse our incivility We're W-I-I-I-L-D When the music plays all the people stomp their feet Go, Baloo.
But a stompin' paw can lay down a better beat Tell me we ain't naturally W-I-I-I-L-D It's a snap to bring out the beast in you You're free like ze bird It's true Or a frog or a hog Baby, we were born free From the baddest cat to the sweetest little deer Tonight's the night we're gonna get our tails in gear Show me your ferocity Go W-I-I-I-L-D We snort, we squeak Up high or deep underground We snarl, we shriek We fly round and round and round You sweet thing, that's inhuman, baby!
The old mongoose gets good and loose The ocelot gives it all he's got The parakeet goes...
The red macaque shouts "Hang on, Jack"
The tiny worm The pachyderm The spotted cat The water rat The great cuckoo The bear Baloo Are W-I-L-D Here's the thing If we're broke, we never squawk We don't need to check no clock To know what time it is It's time to rock When you dance like that hey, honey, it sure is hip I can't stand it!
I want to tip my hat but I got no hat to tip I don't need no hat Ask me why and I won't lie I'm W-I-I-I-L-D We grunt, we growl Up high or deep underground We hoot, we howl We fly round and round and round My, oh, me, it's plain to see We're W-I-I-I-L-D He, she, me, you-nique-ally W- I-I-I-L-D Every beastie running free W- I-I-I-L-D
That's my boy.
They don't swing out like that in your man-village, now do they, kid?
Big fat no. Say, what's that village like, anyway?
Hey, don't bother the kid.
He told me all about that scene.
Let me lay it out for you. Those people are crazy.
Everybody works and nobody plays.
They got nothin' but rules, rules, rules.
And there's even this girl who thinks the jungle is a scary place.
But, you know, it doesn't matter, 'cause Mowgli's never gonna see that village or that crazy girl again.
Ain't that so, kid?
That morning sun peeks over the mountains And all the rhinos rub their eyes When they hear Hear the jungle rhythm
Did we find Mowgli yet?
Are you tired?
I'm sure we'll find him soon.
Come on, hop up.
You okay up there?
How could it be Half as good as being free?
Part of me Like the jungle rhythm
Like the jungle rhythm Did you hear that? Hear what?
It sounded like Mowgli.
Mowgli! Ranjan, wait!
Are you okay?
I feel vine.
What are you doing up there?
Hold on, I'll be right...
I can't believe I finally found you! I thought I would never see you again!
You out here, kid?
Hey, Little Britches?
You're not really helping. Ranjan, stop pulling.
So, what are you doing out here, anyway?
I came to save you.
Save me? From what?
That wild bear that carried you off.
Baloo, don't! No, no, no! Stop! Wait!
My poor sneezer. That hurt.
You come anywhere near Ranjan, and I'll really show you hurt.
Wait! Don't make me do it!
Wait, wait, wait! Calm down! It's okay.
But he's attacking us! Attacking?
I'm the one that got socked in the schnozzle.
Well, that's because you scared her.
But you told me to scarify her!
What? No, no, no, no. I...
Mowgli, you planned this?
Come on, Ranjan.
No, Shanti, I can explain! Don't even bother.
Man, you weren't kiddin' about her. She's bad news.
No, she's not!
She was just trying to help, and you scared her!
First, you tell me to scare her, then you tell me not to scare her.
Kid, I only got so much room up in this noggin, and it's fillin' up fast!
You just don't understand.
All right. How's about layin' it out for me?
Read you loud and clear, kid. You wanted that girl to find you.
Where are you?
There you are.
I'm so sorry.
Will you let me explain?
Come on, at least talk to me.
You seem surprised to see me, man-cub.
I can't imagine why.
I wasn't going to let you get away with what you did to me.
You see, you humiliated me, man-cub.
Surely you do realise I simply can't let you live.
You're going to try and outrun me.
Come on, this way!
All right, stay here.
Ranjan, wait here. I gotta go help Mowgli.
But I want to help Mowgli, too! No, no.
I'll be right back, I promise.
Hold still. Calm down, kid.
Now, where's Mowgli? Shere Khan!
Shere Khan? Hold on!
No matter how fast you run, no matter where you hide, I will catch you.
Come out, come out, wherever you are.
Hurry! Hurry! Faster! Faster!
Not another man-cub.
Can't you go any faster?
What is the meaning of this? Mowgli's in trouble!
Take the kid, Baghee. I'll help Mowgli.
Mowgli, is that you?
You stay away from me! What are you doing here?
Hey, I'm here because when... I'm really not in the mood.
... a member of my den has a problem... I spent a night in the jungle.
I was attacked by a snake, but I really don't care!
That's why I am here to help Mowgli! 'Cause I am here to help Mowgli!
You what? You are?
I guess we're on the same side.
I guess so.
All right, you go that way. I'll cover you.
Well, isn't this a delightful turn of events?
So, what's it going to be, man-cub?
You or your adorable little girlfriend?
Two... No, don't!
No more games, man-cub.
Mowgli, look out!
No! We can do it!
You're looking a bit down in the mouth today.
Hey, hey, what's the matter? Cat got your tongue?
I always said you had a good head on your shoulders, Khannie, me boy.
This is fantastic, playing to a captive audience.
I just love it.
Bagheera. Hey, Mowgli.
It's awfully good to see you, man-cub.
Come on, come on, follow me.
Bagheera, this is Shanti, my best friend from the village.
There they are! Papa!
Come on, Mowgli.
Mowgli, I have to go.
Well, come on, Mowgli.
Come on, Ranjan.
It's okay, kid.
That girl isn't so bad after all, now, is she?
Go on, Mowgli.
Really. Don't let her get away.
Come with me.
Now, you know I can't do that.
I'm going to miss you, Papa Bear.
Me, too, Little Britches.
All right. There. Come on, now. You better hurry up.
Hey. Wait up!
What took you so long?
Race you back.
Come on, Ranjan.
We're over here!
Shanti! We've found the children!
You gave us quite a scare.
Shanti, I was so worried about you.
I'm okay. Mom, I'm so sorry. I was just trying to help Mowgli...
I'm sorry, sir. It's just...
No, Mowgli. I'm sorry.
I should've understood that the jungle is a part of who you are.
I'm just glad you're safe.
You won't believe it.
There was a big, old snake, and I beat him up.
Of course you did.
I'm proud of you, Baloo. That was a very brave thing...
Don't go getting any ideas about running after him and trying to talk him into staying here with us.
He belongs in that village, and you know it.
He's got his whole future there.
I'm sorry, Baloo. You're absolutely right.
I'm really going to miss that kid. Me, too.
Wait a minute.
I'm having myself an idea.
Come on, Mowgli, we'll be late.
I'm right behind you.
Just getting some water.
All right, but be careful, son. I will. See you, Pop.
Let's see if he remembers to actually bring back some water this time.
Hey, Shanti, let's remember to actually bring back some water this time.
Man, that beat is chillin' me.
Hiya, Papa Bear. Hey, there, Little Britches.
Look for the bare necessities The simple bare necessities Forget about your worries and your strife Yeah, man!
I mean the bare necessities That's why us bears can rest at ease With just the bare necessities of life Yeah!
With just the bare necessities of life One more time!
With just the bare necessities of life Yeah, man
Can you hear it?
Yes! Take it away!
Crazy, man. Crazy!
Here we go!
Check this out.
This place is happenin'.
Can you hear it? Yeah.
