Longtime Disney scribe Bill Peet had a falling out with Disney when this project was in its initial story stages. Peet disliked the way the film was escalating into a full-scale musical (perhaps wanting it to progress along simpler lines, as in his "Sword in the Stone" script just before), and left Disney to write and illustrate children's books full-time.
This was the first animated Walt Disney Studios to be released after Disney himself died in December 1966. However, most of the film was completed before the time of his death.
The soundtrack LP for The Jungle Book was awarded the first Gold Record for an animated movie soundtrack (Gold Records were given for selling over 500,000 copies).
