The wolf cubs are first seen when Bagheera brings an infant Mowgli to their cave. The man cub's cries alert Raksha and Rama, the wolf cubs' parents. They notice Mowgli and, knowing the man cub will die if not cared for, take him inside the cave. The wolf cubs are seen ten years later as adults with cubs of their own, and Mowgli has grown up as well. Mowgli howls to his adult wolf siblings, who jump on top of the man cub and lick his face. They are not seen throughout the rest of the film after that.
- The scene where Mowgli is licked by the wolves is recycled animation from the The Sword in the Stone, where Arthur is licked by the castle dogs, Tiger and Talbot.
