Another Creator/{{Disney}} adventure cartoon from the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' era, this series transplants several characters from [[Disney/TheJungleBook Disney's adaptation of]] ''Literature/TheJungleBook'' into a show about the golden age of seaplane travel, featuring PettingZooPeople. Essentially an animated ''Series/TalesOfTheGoldMonkey'' - especially as one of the key locations is Louie's, an island bar run by the titular orangutan. Also has elements of a LighterAndSofter, Disney version of ''TabletopGame/CrimsonSkies'' (particularly the Air Pirates; see below).

** In at least one story from the ComicBookAdaptation, Danger Woman is described as ''[[Franchise/{{Superman}} "faster than a speeding airship, more powerful than a turbine, able to leap city blocks in a single bound"]]''.

* TitleThemeTune: Played with. While the song itself is a straight example, it's actually called "Spin it".

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: The impression one gets of Cape Suzette while watching the show. The warm climate and the decor at Louie's would seem to place it in the South Pacific (Hawaii?), yet the episode "The Balooest of the Bluebloods" shows that it is within driving distance of Germany or a place akin to it. The best explanation of this ambiguous location may be that the country itself is not the actual United States, as one would be likely to assume initially, but a fictional counterpart thereof, a point confirmed by WordOfGod - Baloo and his friends are supposed to live in "Usland".

* ClockTampering: In "The Time Bandit", Baloo alters the clocks and calendars (and even bribes a radio show host to say the incorrect day) to trick Rebecca into thinking it's Saturday and pay him so he can attend a party at Louie's. HilarityEnsues.
