The Red Dogs are minor antagonists in the Jungle Cubs TV series, and were the main antagonists in their only appearance, "Red Dogs". They are notorious pack of dholes who, according to Bagheera, are marauders that almost destroyed the jungle, where the cubs lived, the last time they came.
Role in the series
In the series, an episode featured the cubs driving the red dogs out of the jungle by themselves; with the dogs attempting to attack Khan in the temple where the cubs hung out. Bagheera, Kaa, Hathi and Louie lured the red dogs into a chase, each one hiding after a certain distance to allow another to take over, culminating in Baloo tricking them into falling into a gorge filled with bees.
- Like the cubs (excluding Louie), the wolves and Mowgli, the Red Dogs are characters adapted from the original novel.
- The dholes are also the ones who kill Akela in The Second Jungle Book.
- The Red Dogs resemble the original design of Tabaqui and also Don Karnage. Ironically, both them and their pack leader are both voiced by Jim Cummings.
