King Louie is a character created by Walt Disney Animation for their 1967 film The Jungle Book, based loosely on the book of the same name by Rudyard Kipling. In the original film, he is the king of the apes in the Indian jungle and wants to be human, and has his monkeys kidnap the man-cub, Mowgli, believing that Mowgli can teach him how to make fire. Louie is loud and energetic and loves to party, and in spite of his "chaotic neutral" role in the film, later productions such as the TV shows TaleSpin and Jungle Cubs have featured him as being good friends with Baloo the Bear.
