The Jungle Bunch: The Movie (also known as The Jungle Bunch: Back to the Ice Floe) is a 2011 French animated television film which serves as a pilot movie for the children's series The Jungle Bunch to the Rescue. It was later dubbed into English and released straight-to-DVD in the United States a year later, with John Lithgow headlining the cast.
At the South Pole, the walruses install a rule of terror for the penguins. Pong and his sister travel to the Equator, where legend says a jungle 'penguin warrior' and his six companions live, who can come rescue them. Tiger-striped bird 'tiger' Maurice is flattered and accepts the task. After recruiting gorilla Miguel, warthog Fred, frogs Bob and Al plus tarsier Gilbert, they set out. On the way they meet and recruit bat Batricia. After a long journey, they arrive in Antarctica and take on the giant bullies.
Steve Staley, J.B. Blanc, Bryce Papenbrook, Cam Stance, and Terrence Stone are credited under the pseudonym names Donald Leary, John White, Richard Smallberries Jr., Stan Hanks, and Terry Stone respectively.
This is the only Jungle Bunch media to be dubbed at Dubbing Brothers, as the rest of the franchise would instead be dubbed at SDI Media.
