Trivia

Many aspects of this show were duplicated in the animated series TaleSpin (1990). Baloo is a bush pilot in the South Pacific (even wearing the same outfit), and flying a similar plane. Baloo has a friend named Louie who runs a bar, a slow mechanic and a female lead, who's his boss. Only the time period has changed. See more »

Excellent Show shame it's not on video
8 October 2000 | by (Hereford, England) – See all my reviews

I have watched the episodes many times and considered them excellent, shame they are getting old now and need replacing. Hopefully the series will be available on tape or preferably on DVD. Then people to young to see them at the original airing can see the show!!
