NOTES: "Orangutango-Jango!" (From Walt Disney's The Jungle Book).
It’s no wonder this madcap monarch is known as King Louie the most, for he’s the most outrageous animal in the jungle. This kooky orangutan holds crazy court in an ancient temple, where Louie loves to dance up a storm when he’s not lounging on his elaborate throne. Complete with an urn full of jungle delicacies, and plussed with wire, pewter and resin, this irresistible sculpture set captures both the setting and the royal insanity of this Jungle Book favorite, proving this absolute ruler is absolutely bananas. King Louie entitled “Orangutango – Jungo” is a numbered limited edition of only 750 pieces and releases in spring 2010.

WDCC Disney Classics bio
WALT DISNEY CLASSICS FIGURINES - The Classics Collection started in 1992 with three scenes, Bambi, Cinderella, and Fantasia's Sorcerer Apprentice. Many other series have since been introduced. Some figurines are limited, and some have been retired. Some of these figurines have risen high on the secondary market.
The figurines are made of porcelain, and the process is similar to that use to make Hummel figurines. Individual pieces are molded, put together, and fired in an oven. Then they are painted and fired again.
Each figurine is marked on the bottom, signifying the year it was produced. The marks represent significant milestones in Disney history. The figurines with the first year mark are usually the most desirable.
