It could be argued that as Mowgli, the loin-clothed lead of Disney's The Jungle Book, was raised by wolves he doesn't really understand the concept of manners or appreciation. Yet the wolves in the film are depicted as rational, polite creatures, so Mowgli's ingratitude is obviously ingrained perhaps his father was a banker. During the climatic set piece of The Jungle Book, the man hating Shere Khan has Mowgli cornered against a rock. He snarls and raises his giant paw ready to swipe the head clean off the man-cub's shoulders when, at the last moment, Baloo jumps in and saves him. In the ensuing scuffle ol' Baloo takes a claw to the snozz and drops down 'dead', clearing a path for Mowgli to save the day by setting everything on fire. Ignoring Mowgli's pyromaniac tendencies and skipping past the tears he sheds for Baloo's 'passing', he never actually says thank you to the big grey bear for saving his life. Not even when Baloo miraculously comes back to life. Furthermore in the next scene, having previously stated he wants to stay with Baloo forever, Mowgli spies a gigantic-eyed young girl fetching water from a stream and instantly falls head over heals in love with her. He follows her into the man-village like some love-drunk Hugh Grant, leaving Baloo and Bageera behind in the bushes without so much as a wave. Save your goodbye's Mowgli oh, you have. Clearly he has never heard of Baloos before hoes. But then again, that rhyme doesn't work and is pretty offensive.
