The Jungle Book is a 1967 Disney film about Mowgli, a feral child whose friends Bagheera and Baloo try to make him leave the jungle before the evil Shere Khan finds him.
The Top Ten
1 Bagheera

Yelling is no way to teach Mowgli what is right or to show that you care.

This is my dad's favorite character.

The best character ever in Disney.

2 Kaa

Kaa is my boy, and if I were a character, then I would be him.

The same voice as Winnie the Pooh (creepy, right).

3 Baloo Baloo is a main fictional character featured in Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book from 1894 and The Second Jungle Book from 1895. Baloo, a sloth bear, is the strict teacher of the cubs of the Seeonee wolf pack. His most challenging pupil is Mowgli. Baloo and Bagheera, a panther, save Mowgli from Shere... read more

In my imagination, I see this bear shaking hands with Ranjan's father. The village leader thanks him for saving the children by giving him a necklace.

It's hard not to like his laid-back attitude.

4 King Louie King Louie is a fictional character introduced in Walt Disney's 1967 animated musical film, The Jungle Book.
5 Shere Khan

Shere Khan, please listen. It's true that there are some bad humans in the world, but most humans are good. I know you'd agree with me if you got to know them, just like your mother wanted. Your mother would have wanted you to be friends with humans.

Shere Khan, we'll break up the statue's mouth and set you free if you promise to let Mowgli protect you from hunters. Do you promise? I know it sounds crazy, but you have to trust him.

Let it go, Shere Khan. It's time to put the past behind us. You should have known that some humans are hunters, not all of them.

6 Mowgli

Mowgli, I don't blame you for wanting to join the animals. And because Shere Khan is defeated, I'm giving you a most precious gift: a choice. You can stay in the jungle with your friends, or you can return to your kind in the village. It's up to you.

You really do want to stay in the jungle, don't you, Mowgli?

He makes the right choice at the end.

7 Buzzie, Flaps, Ziggy & Dizzy

I liked the vulture song about friends.

8 Colonel Hathi
9 Shanti

Ranjan: You? In the jungle? I thought you were scared of it.

Shanti: I used to be scared, but I can change my mind. You see, there's no place like the jungle for an innocent baby elephant. Go ahead, Ranjan. Be a jungle boy.

I don't understand why people choose to hate on Shanti.

She's just a misunderstood stranger.

10 Akela

Akela! Rama! Shere Khan has been defeated! The jungle is once again a safe place for Mowgli to stay.

Well, he died unexpectedly in the movie, didn't he?

The Contenders
11 Rama
12 Raksha

Raksha, the mother wolf, is one of my favorite Jungle Book characters.

A mother wolf who raises Mowgli.

13 Hathi, Jr.

He's such a nice and likeable lad. He should be on top.

14 Winifred

She told off Colonel Hathi when he refused to search for Toad (Mowgli).
