A series from my childhood, which I really loved.
I rewatched it recently, only to find out that I still love this series^^

In it's core, it's a story about growing up, about maturing, learning more about the world, finding new friends and such. This is also the aspect I love most about this series:
We see how Mogli grows up, gets stronger and gains the respect of his wolf comrades.

Another good point are some of the characters:
We got Bagheera, who's really an awesome friend Mogli got. He saves Mogli's life several times and they share a close friendship. Especially the end got another surprise in this friendship read more
