Ziggy

Ziggy is one of four vultures who appear in the animated tale of The Jungle Book. The other three vultures are called Buzzie, Flaps and Dizzy. Together they appear to parody The Beatles. I read somewhere that The Beatles were meant to voice the vultures but due to other commitments they were unable to attend the recording. I have no idea how true that is? But it would be nice if it was.

I love the vultures in the cartoon. When I was younger we used to have a show every school holidays called Disney Time. Back then we had very little in the way of Disney Home video and at the time where I lived lacked a decent cinema. Due to this classics such as The Jungle Book were not seen by children of my generation. That was why Disney Time was so popular, we got to see small sections of all these classic Disney movies we never got to watch.

One of the clips I remember loving was that of the vultures. I remember watching them tease Mowgli and loving the way moved. They move as though they are shrugging their shoulders all the time and sort of bounce. They also sing a song called “that’s what friends are for”.

I hope you have enjoyed my pictures over the A to Z Challenge. Some have been more successful than others. Thank you all for visiting, liking and all the lovely comments.

  1. Oh I love the vultures too! They’re so chilled out and funny, and I agree the shoulder shrugging was great hehe! That’s cool you got to see clips from the movies for Disney Time – was it an outdoor cinema thing?

    Congratulations on finishing the A-Z Challenge! 😀 I’ve really enjoyed all of your art this month, and I’m definitely sticking around (you’re in my bookmarks too hehe).
