Quotes from

King Louie: [singing] Now, I'm the king of the swingers, whoa / The jungle V.I.P. / I've reached the top and had to stop / And that's what's botherin' me / I wanna be a man, Man Cub / And stroll right into town / And be just like the other men / I'm tired of monkeyin' around.


[Shere Khan is calmly stalking a deer just as Colonel Hathi and the other elephants frighten off his would-be prey with their noise]
Elephants: Hut, two, three, four. Hut, two, three, four.
Shere Khan: What beastly luck! Confound that ridiculous Colonel Hathi!


[Shere Khan watches Colonel Hathi and the other elephants look for Mowgli while tearing down a bunch of trees]
Shere Khan: Element of surprise? Ho! I say. And now for my rendez-vous with the lost man-cub.

Facts about

Because of their busy band schedule, Louis Prima and Phil Harris recorded their song "I Wanna Be Like You" separately.
The Vultures were originally going to be voiced by The Beatles. The band's manager, Brian Epstein, approached the Disney studios about having The Beatles appear in the film, and Disney had his animators create the Vultures specifically to be voiced by the band. But when Epstein took the idea to the Beatles, John Lennon vetoed the idea, and told Epstein to tell Disney he should hire Elvis Presley instead. The look of The Vultures, with their mop-top haircuts and Liverpool voices, are a homage to The Beatles; one bird's voice and features are clearly based on Ringo Starr. When the Beatles departed the project, the song was rewritten as a barbershop quartet, to make it timeless.
The last film personally overseen by Walt Disney.
