Il Libro della Giungla

Today's little offering is some unusual depictions of characters from The Jungle Book by Italian Disney comic artist Giovan Battista Carpi and Claudio Mazzoli. These appeared in an English translation of an Italian Disney Encyclopedia series back in the early 70's. First up is King Louie dressed for either a night out on the town or an audition for a local dinner theatre production of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Down below we have a cool picture of Chip n' Dale grabbing a ride on Bageria's back. This picture isn't all that crazy, but I always love when characters from different films interact. (How cool would a cartoon of Chip n' Dale annoying Bageria be?!)

And last we have this picture...I'm not sure what the scenario is supposed to be here. It appears Donald Duck is dressed as a Canadian Mountie and raking Baloo's back. I'm sure Baloo appreciates a good back raking, but I don't thing this would make as good a cartoon as Bageria and Chip n' Dale.
