Jungle Book View Master


When The Jungle Book premiered in Germany in 1968 I had to have the merchandise that came along with the new Disney release.. One of my favorite items was the Jungle Book View Master. I thought those 3-D scenes were produced beautifully. Did you know that the View Master sculptors actually checked their maquettes with director Woolie Reitherman and the animators for approval? A photo of such a meeting is included in the exhibition catalogue/book. 

We had originally planed to give the View Master (enlarged) images some space in the exhibit, but we ran out of room. 

For more images go the the Walt Disney Family Museum website:
