The Jungle Bunch is a delightful movie about a cute and loveable penguin named Maurice, voiced by Golden Globe and Emmy award winner and New York Times best-selling children's author John Lithgow, debuting on DVD & Digital Download on May 29, 2012, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The movie is an incredible story of how a Penguin's egg fell off an Antarctic ice floe and somehow ended up in the jungle. Adopted and raised by an affectionate tigress, Maurice is totally convinced that he is actually a tiger!!! He divides his time between hunting, re-painting his stripes and teaching his own adopted son, Junior the Tiger Fish, his own special brand of hunting techniques. Maurice, Junior and all their jungle buddies form a happy, go-lucky but rather dysfunctional family.
Ping and Pong, two penguins from Maurice's native Antarctic village, are in search of "The Great Tiger Warrior" to save their village from an oppressive group of walruses. Their search leads them to Maurice's jungle home where they tell him of their plight. Determined to help, Maurice, joined by Fred, a warthog convinced he lives in a musical; Batricia, the only bat afraid of the dark; Miguel, a more than primate gorilla; and Gilbert, a tarsier afraid to leave his limb, form a team and embark on an adventure they will never forget!

What we Think:
This movie scores extremely high on my cute radar! I knew as soon as I saw the synopsis that our children would LOVE it and I was right. From the second they popped it in, they were laughing and engaged and they remained that way throughout the entire movie. They have watched it again and again and it's currently in the DVD player in our family van so I don't see them getting tired of it anytime soon. This is one of those movies that parents don't mind watching over and over again. It's a great story of acceptance and overcoming adversity and I am sure we will be watching it many more times!!!
