The Jungle Book
Disney's enduringly popular animated adaptation of the Mowgli stories by Rudyard Kipling. Mowgli (voiced by Bruce Reitherman) is raised in the jungle by wolves, where his friends Baloo the bear (Phil Harris) and Bagheera the black panther (Sebastian Cabot) keep a close eye on the man cub. When rumours spread that vicious tiger Shere Khan (George Sanders) has returned to the jungle, Baloo and Bagheera agree that Mowgli would be safer back in the village with the other humans but the journey home is complicated by unexpected encounters with crazy orangutan King Louie (Louis Prima) and hypnotic python Kaa (Sterling Holloway). The film's most famous song "Bare Necessities" won an Oscar and this was the last film overseen entirely by Disney before his death.
