The Jungle Book tells the story of Mowgli, a little boy who was raised by wolves and needs to return to the world of human beings in order to escape a man-eating tiger. He is almost stopped from getting to the “man village” by an ape and is helped to succeed by a bear. The hilarious Disney Characters from The Jungle Book who entertain you are:

  • King Louie
    King Louie is an orangutan and is “king of the swingers” in the jungle. He wants to be more like Man. King Louie captures the “man cub” Mowgli hoping to learn the secret of “man’s red fire”.
  • Baloo
    Baloo is an easygoing, fun loving, bear who lives in the jungle. He teaches the “man-cub” Mowgli about the “Bare Necessities” of life. Mowgli calls Baloo “Papa Bear”.

The Lion King follows the adventures of Simba, a young lion who runs away when his evil uncle kills his father, the King. Heir to his father’s throne, Simba returns when he’s grown up to take back his homeland with the help of his friends, including these Disney Characters from The Lion King who entertain you at the Stone of the Sun and Moon:

  • Rafiki
    Rafiki is a baboon that helps Simba discover his place in the Pride Lands. He shows Simba, that his father Mufasa lives within him. Rafiki is playful and eccentric, but very wise and respected.
