Mowgli has a chat with Kaa - the snake
We get a glimpse of Mowgli's early childhood spent with the wolf cubs. Twelve years pass and Mowgli is now a young man. He wanders into the villiage and is captured by the men, led by Buldeo (Joseph Calleia) - who thinks Mowgli is evil, like the beasts of the jungle.
His mother, Massua (Rosemary De Camp) agrees to care for the boy, not knowing that Mowgli is her child - who disappeared many years ago into the jungle. Mowgli learns the ways of man, gets some money and buys a knife... so he can return to the jungle and defeat Shere Kahn. He feels that man is the evil beast - not the animals in the jungle. He wants out - even though he is fond of Buldeo's daughter, Mahala (Patricia O'Rourke).
