Audio problem: In the beginning, you can hear the sounds of the jungle, including the laugh of a kookaburra. The problem is: The film is set in India and kookaburras are only in Australia, not India.

Continuity mistake: When Mowgli is with the monkeys, Bagheera is on Mowgli's left, but then suddenly he is on Mowgli's right.

Other mistake: In the opening sequence, Mowgli is running at full speed through the jungle, accompanied by Bagheera the black panther, who is mostly unseen until Mowgli finally collapses, exhausted onto the jungle floor. Mowgli lies on his back, talking to Bagheera, and neither are breathing heavily or showing any sign of exertion following their lengthy run.
