- Awesome Music: From the same man who did RoboCop (1987) and The Hunt for Red October, Basil Poledouris had provided a memorable soundtrack for this movie.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: In his review, Roger Ebert talked about the In Name Only premise and wondered "What's next? Tom Sawyer with a car chase and a shoot-out?" Well...
- Narm: Tabaqui's Disney Villain Death, which is clearly a cheap effect and has him screaming in a hilariously odd way and his eyes bugging out.
- Retroactive Recognition: Lena Headey (a.k.a. Queen Gorgo and Queen Cersei) as Kitty.
- Special Effect Failure: The green screen effect mentioned under Narm.
- What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: This movie is surprisingly dark, with several violent action scenes and rather gruesome deaths for the villains.
- WTH, Casting Agency?: Mowgli should, logically speaking, be Indian, seeing as the story is set in India and seeing how the child Mowgli is clearly Indian and has a clearly Indian father. But for the grown-up Mowgli they decided on the Ambiguously Brown route, and went with the Chinese-Hawaiian Jason Scott Lee.
