!!Provides Examples Of: * CallOfTheWildBlueYonder: Kit Cloudkicker admires his mentor, Baloo, and hopes to become a remarkable pilot some day. The few times that Kit has taken the controls have overwhelmed him, though. However, as far as riding an airfoil goes, Kit takes to "cloudsurfing" like a bird to the sky.

Added DiffLines:
* TheSociopath: Daring Dan Dawson from ''Stormy Weather.'' LackOfEmpathy? He doesn't care if Kit gets hurt or killed during a stunt, cutting his straps and forcing him out of the plane during the climax and it's not the first time this has happened. Manipultive? Constantly feeds off Kit's ego and forces him to do the climactic stunt by pretending to take him home. Need for stimulation? An aerial daredevil by profession. Grandiose sense of self worth? Doesn't have much respect for non-daredevils, using terms like "little people" or "rubes." Shallow emotions? Painfully sycophantic when Kit threatens to quit.

* SpiritualSuccessor: The series is basically a [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom Furry]] version of the old TV series ''Series/TalesOfTheGoldMonkey'' which was itself inspired by ''Only Angels Have Wings'' and ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk.''

** This is pretty much how Baloo always fights back any time the Sea Duck is attacked; he does fly a cargo plane with no guns after all.

** One showed up in "The Incredible Shrinking Molly"; Molly confuses him with a MadScientist at first.

* AffectionateNickname: [[TheNicknamer Baloo]] dishes out a lot of these, but perhaps the most notable are "Lil' Britches" (for Kit) and "Becky" (for Rebecca). Rebecca's treatment of her nickname also mirrors the trope, only accepting it when she is on happy terms with Baloo. Kit calls Baloo Mowgli's nickname for the original, "Papa Bear".

* AllThereInTheManual: The short-lived comic series confirms Becky's [[spoiler:status as a widow]] and goes into some detail about Kit's life before linking up with Don Karnage.

* AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering: The vast majority of the scenes with Don Karnage and Gibber, and some dialogs between Baloo and Wildcat.

** Baloo can be considered something of a "Bunny Ears Pilot" as well, slovenly, obnoxious and BookDumb, but is an ingenius and versatile flyer (including piloting prototype helicopters and a bare jet engine!). One could argue whether Rebecca's quirks make her a "Bunny Ears Businesswoman" as well.

* CastingGag: The decision to cast Ed Gilbert and R.J. Williams as Baloo and Kit, respectively. They had previously been cast as a father-and-son bear duo in the mid-1980s Creator/{{NBC}} cartoon ''{{Kissyfur}}''. * CatFight: Rebecca had one with most female villains. Mainly [[spoiler:Kitten Kaboodle]] in "A Star Is Torn" and [[spoiler:Muffy Vanderschmeer]] in "A Touch Of Glass".

** Ironically Col. Spigot's first appearance in "The Idol Rich" is about the one time he and Baloo instantly recognise each other.

* CutSong: A scene in the TV movie "Plunder & Lightning" where Rebecca sings "Home Is Where The Heart Is", a lullaby to Molly as Kit listens in was cut for time when it was split into four episodes.

Added 'Big Beautiful Woman'
Added DiffLines:
* BigBeautifulWoman: Two examples of significant note and numerous examples seen in background characters, namely Plane Jane, a pilot from the episode 'Waiders of the Wost Tweasure' whose aviation and adventuring skill rivals Baloo's and Sally, the sultry-voiced DJ from the episode 'The Time Bandits'.

* PrestigePeril: Work-a-day pilot Baloo learns that he's the last survivor of the Bruinwald bloodline, and thus, heir to a barony. Suddenly, Baloo is living large, and loving it. However, Baloo is shown portraits of his predecessors, each of whom died under peculiar circumstances. It's revealed that the Bruinwalds were all murdered by the one who would have stewardship of the barony in the absence of any Bruinwald.

*** The episode "The Road To Macadamia" is a straight up homage to the "[[Film/RoadTo Road]]" movies starring BobHope and BingCrosby but with Baloo and Louie. ** Baloo's gypsy costume in the episode "A Spy In The Ointment" is extremely similar to Little John's costume from an early scene in the Disney version of RobinHood. This is actually FridgeBrilliance when you consider that Phil Harris was both the original voice actor for Baloo and the voice actor for Little John in the movie where the costume originated from.

* BeserkButton: The pig from "The Bigger They Are, The Louder They Oink" goes on a ballistic rampage whenever it hears the word 'bacon'. It becomes a ChekhovsGag when Baloo and Rebecca weaponize it to escape from natives.
