Added DiffLines:

* InformedSpecies: Tabaqui does not look very jackal like.


* ShesAManInJapan: In an odd example of this trope, Mother Wolf and Father Wolf occasionally switch voices in the English dub, which has the consequence of changing who does what in a few scenes. In particular, in Russian it's Mother Wolf who stands between Shere Khan and Mowgli at the council rock. In the English dub, this is inexplicably changed to Father Wolf.

Added DiffLines:

* DubPersonalityChange: A strange minor example: the opinions of the wolf council are switched in the dub. This results in one of the members apparently changing their mind to be ''against'' Mowgli joining the pack when he grabs Tabaqui's snout, as opposed to being impressed by it and accepting him.


* ShesAManInJapan: Common to such adaptations, Bagheera is female in this version, on account of "panther" being a feminine word in Russian.

''Adventures of Mowgli'', known simply as ''Maugli'', was a Soviet animation that was released behind the Iron Curtain from 1967 to 1971 as an animated series consisting of five episodes. It was later [[CompilationMovie compiled into a single movie]] in 1973. Obviously, this is an adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's ''Literature/TheJungleBook'', which follows it more closely than its [[Disney/TheJungleBook American counterpart]] released around the same time.

* SnakesAreSinister: Much like the original book, Kaa the python averts this trope, being a wise mentor for Mowgli. Except for the scene where he hypnotises the monkeys, which approaches EldritchHorror. White Hood the cobra plays this trope straight, although [[HarmlessVillain "she has outlived her venom"]] as Mowgli puts it.

* AndroclesLion: Mowgli earns the friendship of the elephants when he rescues their calf from a pit.
