The Jungle Bunch: The Movie tells the entertaining and thrilling tale of Maurice, a penguin who has been raised within the jungle by an adoptive mom so he believes that like her, he is tiger! So much so that he paints stripes on himself and “hunts” for prey.
His life is pretty uneventful until two penguins, Ping and Pong, make the voyage from Maurice’s Antarctic birthplace to the jungle. They’ve come in pursuit of “The Great Tiger Warrior” whom they hope will take up the defense their colony from a heard of walruses that threaten to take over and throw out their way of life.
Maurice, sensing his duty, assembles an unlikely team of misfit jungle buddies which include Fred, a musical warthog, Batricia who although a bat, is afraid of the dark, the sweet but simple gorilla Miguel, and finally a terrified tarsier named Gilbert. The teams sets out to save the penguins’ home and in doing so, they end up on an adventure they’ll won’t soon forget!
The voice of Maurice is supplied by New York Times (best-selling) children’s book author and Award-winning actor John Lithgow. In a behind the scenes interview, Lithgow (below) shares how he enjoys the animation in this family-friendly film and he gives his take on all of the characters.
