The Jungle Book Baloo and Mowgli Good olï¿½ Papa Bear! sculpted by Bruce Lau is Limited to Production Year 2011.
Be-bopping along and singing a jungle song, Baloo the jive-talking bear and Mowgli the man-cub are an inseparable pair. I kept thinking how can I make this bear and this kid feel closer together, noted animator Ollie Johnston, while fellow Disney artist Frank Thomas added, that with Baloo and Mowgli,"I think we got the strongest friendly relationship between two characters we ever got in any picture. Baloo was to originally have had a much smaller role in The Jungle Book but the relationship between the boy and bear was so heartfelt, the jazzy bruinï`s role grew. Plussed with a pewter cowlick on Mowgli, this irresistible sculpture highlights the humorous and heartwarming jungle-born kinship between two of Walt Disneyï`s most cherished characters " the endearing Little Britches and his ever-lovin" Papa Bear
Raised by a wolf pack, all 10-year-old Mowgli wants is to stay in the jungle. But Shere Khan, the tiger who hates men, has sworn he will kill the boy. So Mowgli's friends Bagheera, the panther, must take this man-cub to the man-village before it's too late. Along the way, Mowgli searches for a place to belong, adopting the life of an elephant, a bear, a monkey, even a vulture. Unfortunately, the naive Mowgli's friends often prove more dangerous than sincere. Angry at Bagheera and his adopted "papa bear," Baloo, for trying to take him from the jungle, Mowgli soon finds out that friends are the ones who tell you what you need to hear, even if it's not what you want to hear.
