I just want to add that last night (and the night before that one...) i had a dream, that involved Pop tarts. One week already, and it's fun because i haven't eat one in 6 years or something (no, no poptarts in spain either....).

Tamago, it's your fault.

No, no. I know that the Disney version twisted him around a bit, but I didn't know from where else would I find a picture of Shere Khan & Bagheera...

I don't remember the movie at all, aside from the snake having hypno-eyes...

In Talespin Shere Kahn is pretty Akio-like, if not always as successful.

I haven't seen the movie you're talking about, but the name Shere Khan is nowhere in the book, which leads me to think that it was a Disney creation... I dunno. I haven't seen all of the Disney movie in its entirety either so I'm not really an authority.

Shere Khan is actually in the book, but there are several different versions of the book, and some of them leave the stories with Shere Khan out. Why, I have no idea. But he's actually in one of the very first stories about Mowgli, demanding that the wolves give Mowgli up because it is his Night to hunt man by the law of the jungle, and he killed Mowgli's parents so Mowgli's life belongs to him. I can't remember exactly what goes on, but the wolves obviously end up keeping Mowgli.

Shere Khan is like Saionji because he is crippled-- they call him Lungri, the Lame One, because one of his paws is lame-- and it is this inferiority that drives him to be as vicious as he is. Much the same as Saionji, whose perceived inferiority to Touga drives him to be the way he is.

Re: General SKUpidity

Well, he was in the book but the edition that I read never referred to him as Shere Khan. But he is indeed like Saionji in the books - the Disney version is more like Touga, but that's stretching it a bit.

Re: General SKUpidity

Yeah, I have the complete works, and I'm pretty sure he's referred to as Shere Khan in there, although I will check. I know the character is, for sure. I think it's really weird how Kipling's works get so split up and changed around. I haven't run into that with any other author.

Re: General SKUpidity

If Akio was a cat, he'd be a tiger.

If Touga was a cat, he'd be a lion.

Re: General SKUpidity

Touga would be a lion. He's lazy, egotistical and has lots of sex. How much more of a lion can you get?

As for Kipling, yeah. And I can't check the book that I read because I don't have it anymore - it wasn't all of his stories but it was more than just The Jungle Book and Rikki-Tikki-Tavi.

Touga seems to be the type just to lay back and let them 'entertain' him.

The Jungle Book is on Project Gutenberg: http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/236

It doesn't appear to be the complete version, alas.  It leaves out "Red Dog" and probably a number of other stories.

First appearance of Shere Khan in the book:
Tabaqui sat still, rejoicing in the mischief that he had made, and then he said spitefully:

"Shere Khan, the Big One, has shifted his hunting grounds. He will hunt among these hills for the next moon, so he has told me."

Shere Khan was the tiger who lived near the Waingunga River, twenty miles away.

"He has no right!" Father Wolf began angrily"By the Law of the Jungle he has no right to change his quarters without due warning. He will frighten every head of game within ten miles, and II have to kill for two, these days."

"His mother did not call him Lungri [the Lame One] for nothing," said Mother Wolf quietly. "He has been lame in one foot from his birth. That is why he has only killed cattle. Now the villagers of the Waingunga are angry with him, and he has come here to make our villagers angry. They will scour the jungle for him when he is far away, and we and our children must run when the grass is set alight. Indeed, we are very grateful to Shere Khan!"

"Shall I tell him of your gratitude?" said Tabaqui.

"Out!" snapped Father Wolf. "Out and hunt with thy master. Thou hast done harm enough for one night."

"I go," said Tabaqui quietly. "Ye can hear Shere Khan below in the thickets. I might have saved myself the message."
