- Young Mowgli and Kitty fall in love, and are reunited later in life against all odds.
- The montage of Kitty and Dr. Plumford teaching Mowgli how to interact with society again. It beautifully evolves from a pet project into a friendship with him.
- Baloo survives being shot in the end. It's a wonderful reveal with Dr. Plumford remarking that he was a "very good patient."
