Trivia

Many of the planes featured in the series have real-life analogies: the SeaDuck is a Conwing L-16 Heavy Transport with Superflight 100 engines, similar to a Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar; the CT-37 Pirate Fighter is based on the Gee Bee Model R Super Sportster with a second pair of wings and pontoons instead of landing gear; and Louie's midair refueling plane is analogous to the Grumman G-21 "Goose".

Goofs

The dock setup for Higher for Hire changes almost every episode to accommodate the direction from which the Seaduck is heading. See more »

Bring this show back!
8 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Along with Darkwing Duck this is unfairly cancelled. Disney has been in decline since Tarzan and we need a show like this to get Disney back on track. Ed Gilbert and Jim Cummings were perfect for the voices of Louis and Baloo (sounds familiar?) The theme tune is also catchy, one of the catchiest theme tunes ever I'd say. Out of all the villains, which are all great on their own merits, Tony Jay stands out as Shere Kahn. Louis and Baloo actually sound very similar to the voice overs in the Jungle Book, which isn't a bad thing at all. As a matter of fact, it's quite inspirational! The animation was spot on, and the script had plenty of wit that has been severely lacking in animations for years. PLEASE BRING THIS SHOW BACK! 9/10. Bethany Cox
