On an idyllic island paradise, a box with a little boy Baloo and his trained elephant Jumbo washes up; the duo perform song-and-dance routines for the enjoyment of the quirky inhabitants. But the peace is soon destroyed when the island is caught up in a war between two neighboring islands; ultimately, after many great hardships (including the king of the island wanting the innocent Jumbo dead, only tearfully reconsidering after Baloo's sorrowful pleas) and the total obliteration of the two large islands by each other, the inhabitants persevere and rejoice in their survival, and the paradise is soon restored to its former glory.


  • Sanrio's first film.
