Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Darleen Carr who played the voice of The Girl (Shanti) is the younger sister of The Sound of Music (1965) actress Charmian Carr (Liesl von Trapp). She stopped working with Disney Studios after this film.
  • Walt Disney told his animation crew to "throw away" Rudyard Kipling's book, "The Jungle Book" because the original concept storyboards were too dark and dramatic. During pre-production, Disney assigned animator Larry Clemmons to head story development on the project. He gave Clemmons a copy of "The Jungle Book," and told him, "The first thing I want you to do is not read it."
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Baloo asks Mowgli to scratch his left shoulder, however when Mowgli scratches him, he scratches his right
  • Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman were hired as songwriters after Terry Gilkyson wouldn't distance himself from the "darker" side of The Jungle Book. His song "The Bare Necessities" was included in the film, and was the only song from the film to be nominated for an Academy Award. Two other songs written for the film (by Gilkyson) can be heard on the soundtrack CD: "Brothers All" and "The Song of the Seeonee."
