Trivia (1)

Originally, the role of Baloo in TaleSpin (1990) was supposed to go to Phil Harris, who had voiced the character in the original 1967 film, The Jungle Book (1967). However, after one recording session for "TaleSpin," it was found that Harris, who had turned 85 just before recording began, had aged to the point where he could no longer do the voice successfully. In order to perfect his rendition of Baloo's voice, Ed listened to old recordings of Phil Harris and practiced for many hours until he had it just right.
