You are invited to come along on an extraordinary musical adventure with Mowgli, a boy raised by wolves in the jungle. With the help of his friends--the bear Baloo, the panther Bagheera and the python Kaa, Mowgli is learning to survive as they teach him about "Jungle Law." Does anyone know what will happen when Mowgli encounters the hooded cobra who guards the treasure vault? It's always difficult to judge hilarious coconut-tossing monkeys, especially when they take our hero prisoner.
