[[folder:Baloo]]
[[quoteright:259:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tale_Spin_Baloo_4113.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Ed Gilbert

A slovenly middle aged bear and a top notch pilot, Baloo's key goal is to buy back his beloved plane the Sea Duck from Rebecca Cunningham, who has bought his dying cargo service. Baloo is naturally swiped (and anthropomorphized) from Disney's AnimatedAdaptation of ''Disney/TheJungleBook''.
----
!!Tropes associated with Baloo:

* AcePilot: Baloo is a situational bushwhacker/plugger; in open sky, he bushwhacks like a mofo via [[ImprobablePilotingSkills ridiculous aerial acrobatics]], in mountains and cities he plugs like a bastard through [[TryAndFollow terrain manipulation]], both supplemented by occasional usage of AbnormalAmmo - pretty much the only option available to him, as he takes on waves of fightercraft with a ''cargo plane.''
* {{Acrofatic}}
* AnthropomorphicShift: From ''Disney/TheJungleBook''.
* BadassBoast: In courtesy of Shere Khan in ''From Here to Machinery'' after he deactivates a faulty robot pilot.
--> '''Shere Khan''': Quiet, Professor. Let a ''real'' pilot show how it's done.
* BigEater: And How.
* BookDumb: Baloo can barely read or write, but is extremely resourceful and street wise at times.
* ChickMagnet: Throughout the show, he's actually quite popular with the ladies.
* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Determinator}}: He has the occasional HeroicBSOD, but overall he's unstoppable and suicidally fearless when pushed hard enough. Even when he thought ''he had days to live'' he continued with his goals.
* GeniusDitz
* GenreSavvy: While not immune to being suckered in himself, Baloo can be rather streetwise and observant at times, he is wary to some of the shady clients Rebecca naively takes offers from, and is more willing to listen the kids' explanations at times (once debunking Rebecca's NotNowKiddo moment with Kit).
* ImprobablePilotingSkills: Baloo is so good a pilot he can pilot a plane even if he has to resort to directly manipulating the control cables to a craft's flaps and rudder when the yoke was broke. Furthermore, in one episode, he was able to quickly learn how to fly a prototype helicopter, despite the fact that operating that kind of vehicle is a completely different (not to mention ''revolutionary'' for the 1930s) concept in aviation. And don't forget, he was able to successfully "pilot" a prototype jet engine merely by hanging on to it and tugging on it real hard. No wings, no rudder, no ''plane''. Just the engine. He even broke the sound barrier while riding it.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Baloo at times can be rather obnoxious and selfish, and will do anything to shy from work, but cares deeply about his friends and family. Do ''not'' hurt them.
* KnightInSourArmor: While he has JumpedAtTheCall a few odd times, he is often a somewhat resentful hero, especially since he so greatly lacks the HeroInsurance many other heroes have.
* LoveableRogue: Frequently attempting "Get Rich Quick Schemes" or trying to find ways to slack off at work.
* ManVersusMachine: In "From Here to Machinery", which has him competing with a robotic pilot.
* [[PapaWolf Papa Bear]]: To Kit, and Molly to a lesser extent.
* ParentalSubstitute: Again to Kit, with occasional moments with Molly.
* TheSlacker: As true to his Jungle Book incarnation as possible.
* StubbornMule: He's more likely to back down than Rebecca, but he definitely embodies this in some of their feuds.
* TookALevelInBadass: The AnthropomorphicShift from ''The Jungle Book'' turns Baloo from a normal Indian bear to a highly competent AcePilot.
* TookALevelInJerkass: While still a very sympathetic character, ''Talespin's'' rendition of Baloo can also often be more self serving, bad tempered and egotistical than his ''Jungle Book'' rendition, albeit nearly all DependingOnTheWriter.
* {{Tsundere}}: Alternates between friendly and taciturn; the latter often brought out by Rebecca's heckling.
* WackyParentSeriousChild: The surrogate wacky parent to Kit's serious child.

[[folder:Kit Cloudkicker]]
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tale_Spin_Kit_6320.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Alan Roberts and/or R.J. Williams, depending on the episode

Baloo's right hand bear and semi-adopted son. Orignally an air pirate, before stealing a treasure from Karnage and making friends with Baloo.
----
!!Tropes associated with Kit:

* AdorablyPrecociousChild: He's only 12, but he already knows more about planes (if not flying) than Baloo.
* BadassAdorable
* BeleagueredAssistant: On occasion due to Baloo's bumbling.
* BrainyBrunette
* [[CoolBigSis Cool Big Bro]]: A surrogate one to Molly.
* DeadpanSnarker
** ServileSnarker
* {{Expy}}: Though he has rather differing personality traits in places, he has more than a few connections to Mowgli from ''Disney/TheJungleBook'', especially in his relationship with Baloo. The latter even refers to him as "Lil' Britches" as he does Mowgli.
* GuileHero: Often he's better at it than his mentor, although there are a few episodes where their roles reverse.
* HeartwarmingOrphan: At the beginning of the series.
* HeelFaceTurn: Begins the show doing so, defecting from the Air Pirates and joining up with Baloo.
* InnocentProdigy: Kit is often rather intelligent, and sometimes shown to have more common sense than his peers, his occasional childlike naivete or rambunctiousness shows at times however.
* KidSidekick: An example of the KidAppealCharacter being done without [[TheScrappy inspiring loathing in the audience]]. Kit is brave but not entirely fearless, clever but not flawlessly so, and has better people skills than Baloo or Rebecca.
* LukeNounverber
* TheNavigator: He even gets a trophy for it in one episode.
* OnlySaneMan: While he does have IdiotBall moments, he more consistently plays the voice of reason between Baloo and Rebecca when they are at each other's throats.
--> '''Kit:''' You're ''both'' nuts!
* ShorterMeansSmarter: In regards to Baloo, and sometimes even Rebecca.
* SkySurfing: Kit's favorite mode of transport.
* WackyParentSeriousChild: The surrogate serious child to Baloo's wacky parent.

[[folder: Rebecca Cunningham]]
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tale_Spin_Rebecca_Cunningham_7970.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Sally Struthers

A young entrepeneur woman bear that bought Baloo's cargo service (and as a result his plane, the Sea Duck) and renovated it into Higher For Hire. Often butts heads with her employees, especially Baloo, in early episodes, but she softens up as the series progresses.
----
!!Tropes associated with Rebecca:

* AffectionateNickname: Refered to as "Becky" by Baloo. Rebecca seems to treat it as such, only accepting the name whenever she is in a good mood with him.
* TheAllegedBoss: Rebecca plays with this. She has ControlFreak issues and is perfectly willing to push Baloo and others around in her schemes; however, she is usually all bark and no bite, and usually acts more as a bossy childish friend than an authority figure, something Baloo takes advantage of time and time again.
* BenevolentBoss[=/=]MeanBoss[=/=]PointyHairedBoss: Rebecca can be considered an unusual mix of all three tropes in one. While she mostly leans towards the first due to her protagonist role and viewing her employees more as her friends, her occasional temperament, [[ControlFreak superiority complex]] and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} outright quirkiness]] leads to her being less than pleasant to work with [[DependingOnTheWriter on occasion]], especially in early episodes.
* BrainyBrunette
* CatSmile: Her default smile.
* CloserToEarth: {{Played with}}. While Rebecca often plays TheStraightMan to Baloo's rowdiness and antics, she has her own moments of stupidity and arrogance (most of which Baloo himself plays [[SanityBall the voice of reason]] towards). DependingOnTheWriter, one or the other may be playing the part of OnlySaneMan that episode.
* ControlFreak: Rebecca plays with this. She is frequently very insistent in getting her own way, but is more bark than bite and a lot more lenient and enduring than a usual employer.
* DamselOutOfDistress: She has her moments of this.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DeathGlare: She has a pretty good one, which she gives Baloo in "Time Waits For No Bear".
* DitzyGenius
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: The show seemed to enjoy having little Rebecca kick around big hefty Baloo. However it is downplayed in terms of violence, and Baloo is at least granted forms of revenge besides his own hand.
* {{Expy}}: Of Rebecca Howe in ''Series/{{Cheers}}''. Her role in the series, and her rivalry with Baloo, are both very similar to her namesake.
* TheFinickyOne: Especially when acting as a Foil to the lazy, slovenly Baloo.
* GenreSavvy: She's usually aware of Baloo's zany schemes, and is often prepared to deal with them.
* HeroAntagonist: Often acts as such in some of Baloo's LoveableRogue moments. While she can be [[MeanBoss rather overbearing]] about it ([[NotSoAboveItAll and not above playing up herself]]) she usually just wants Baloo to do an honest job of things. A lot of times when she gets the larger SympatheticPOV, Baloo is actually painted as something of a {{Jerkass}}.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Rebecca is something of a [[SmallNameBigEgo pompous]] [[KnowNothingKnowItAll know-it-all]] who has nothing against [[BecauseISaidSo pushing her weight around]] to get Baloo to follow orders. Whenever Baloo is taken out of the picture, however, [[CantLiveWithThemCantLiveWithoutThem things often fall apart]] due to Rebecca's physical and emotional dependence on him to help run the company. Some obvious dents left from being a single mother are also apparent.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: A pretentious hot head who frequently clashes with Baloo, and can be ''very'' abrasive with him. That's said, it's clear that she really does care for him deep down. She's also a [[MamaBear loving mother to go with it.]]
* LovableAlphaBitch: Something of a grown up variant. Rebecca is extremely snobbish and self important at times, and often looks down on those lower on the chain than her, but is a loving mother and ultimately devoted to her employees. Not to mention her huge showings of humility whenever she realises she's taken things too far.
* MamaBear: [[DontExplainTheJoke Literally...]] and also within the meaning of the trope. Friend or foe alike, you're in ''big'' trouble if something happens to Molly.
* NotSoDifferent: Despite their very contrasting ethics, Rebecca shares more in common with Baloo than she'd like to admit. She will recurring berate him over one of his flaws, only minutes before she makes a similar mistake (eg. chastising Baloo over his temper, before he has to restrain her from assaulting a client).
* ParentalSubstitute: Not nearly as prominently as Baloo, but she has her moments with Kit.
* PinkMeansFeminine
* PositiveDiscrimination: Averted. She and Baloo juggle the SanityBall rather evenly.
* SexySecretary: She may be the boss of Higher For Hire, but she basically doubles as this also.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Oh yes, very much.
* SlapSlapKiss: Though it doesn't really develop past subtle teases, Rebecca was very much designed to have this relationship with Baloo, when not arguing or berating him (or in some rarer cases [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale outright attacking him]]) she is very caring towards him and it is very obvious there is some romantic tension between them.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Gets hit with it as bad as Baloo at times. Borders IronButtMonkey territory in "The Bigger They Come, The Louder They Oink".
* SmallNameBigEgo: She knows a lot more about running the company than Baloo, but a lot of her money making schemes are terrible and she has a very high opinion of her business thinking. As she once insisted, she's never wrong.
* StubbornMule: To occasionally insane lengths. She will never admit she is wrong.
--> '''Rebecca:''' Would so! [[ComicallyMissingThePoint I'm just never wrong!]]
* TookALevelInKindness: Subtle example. While she still has rather arrogant moments on occasion, Rebecca is more consistantly gentler in many later episodes. A lot of her later appearances also focus on her friendship and devotion to Baloo getting stronger ([[ShipTease the hints to it going beyond that also become stronger]]), at least in comparison to earlier episodes, where she was often at Baloo's throat and could act like an all out {{Jerkass}} at times.
* {{Tsundere}}: Once again, DependingOnTheWriter.
* UglyGuyHotWife: Kind of fills in this role in regard to Baloo.
* VitriolicBestBuds: As often as she clashes with Baloo, she is often shown to be rather devoted and caring towards him whenever problems occur (at least once she outright tried to [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice her life]] to save him). She even openly refers to Baloo as her best friend.
* [[spoiler: WidowWoman: This was confirmed in the short lived comic book series.]]
* WillTheyOrWon'tThey: It is highly unlikely that Rebecca and Baloo will ever become an official couple, since they are both basically boss and employee.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Molly Cunningham]]
[[quoteright:269:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tale_Spin_Molly_7089.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Janna Michaels

Bubbly six year old daughter of Rebecca. Occasionally rambunctious and fond of sneaking into some of Baloo's travels. Sometimes pretends to be her favorite superheroine, Danger Woman, complete with a homemade costume.
----
!!Tropes associated with Molly:

* BadassAdorable: Not nearly as profound as Kit, but has her moments.
** DamselOutOfDistress: She takes after her mom in this regard.
* CheerfulChild: Albeit with the occasional BrattyHalfPint moment. For instance, the pilot episode shows she's not above a little blackmail to get what she wants, but when Baloo gets in trouble with Rebecca losing his cargo when she is with him on that occasion, Molly immediately upholds her part of the bargain and bails him out.
* CompanionCube: Her doll Lucy, as shown in the page pic.
* [[spoiler: DisappearedDad: The comic book series explains that her father is deceased.]]
* EvilDetectingBaby: Okay, Molly is actually six, but she's still a very young kid, and is often shown to smell a rat, especially if it's hanging around her mother.
* LittleMissSnarker: DependingOnTheWriter, Molly can have a surprisingly dry wit about her.
* MoralityPet: WordOfGod claims Molly was created to bring out Rebecca's softer side and motherly instincts to balance her more arrogant bouts with Baloo.
* PingPongNaivete: Molly can range anywhere between [[WiseBeyondTheirYears being way more observant than the adult members of Higher For Hire]] to [[TooDumbToLive trying to play high dive from her apartment's balcony]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Wildcat]]
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tale_Spin_Wildcat_5047.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/PatFraley

Eccentric mechanic for Higher For Hire. Spacey and not too bright, but kind-hearted and extremely competent at his job.
----
!!Tropes associated with Wildcat:

* BodyDouble: In "Citizen Khan", it's claimed that he is "virtually identical" to Shere Khan once he's dressed properly. To the audience, this is an InformedAttribute, but it seems to be true in-universe for almost everybody. Khan himself, however, is rather... unimpressed.
* [[BunnyEarsLawyer Bunny Ears Mechanic]]: A cheerful {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and generally unaware of social niceties, true. But he was also a genius mechanic, a competent pilot ([[CaptainCrash albeit with few directional skills]]), and on occasion, surprisingly perceptive regarding matters of the heart.
* CatsAreMean: Utterly {{averted}}; he's the nicest character in the series.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Where to begin...
* FriendToAllChildren: Kit and Molly are few examples of this.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Most episodes about him prove this such as "Paradise Lost" and "The Sound Of The Furry".
* GeniusDitz
* KindheartedSimpleton: The most consistently kind character in the show; however, this is played alongside his completely brainless demeanor.
* MachineEmpathy: One of his skills.
* ManChild
* NiceGuy
* OneOfTheKids
* PercussiveMaintenance: His favorite repair technique seems to be hitting whatever the problem is with a mallet. And most of the time it works!
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Don Karnage]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tale_Spin_Don_Karnage_4775.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JimCummings

Spanish-accented captain of the Air Pirates, intent on getting past Cape Suzette's security and plundering the town. A somewhat clownish villain who usually serves as the show's main antagonist.
----
!!Tropes associated with Don Karnage:

* AffablyEvil
* BerserkButton: Do NOT call him "crazy".
* TheDreaded: Averted, although he ''yearns'' for this status.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: While Karnage thrives on being seen as ruthless and fearsome as possible, he refuses to KickThemWhileTheyAreDown. He even saved Baloo's life in a scuffle between them, so he could beat him on fair grounds.
** At once point when he just can't find the rubies on the Sea Duck he was positive Baloo was carrying he and his pirates disembark and leave Baloo unmolested, assuming his info was wrong. Hilariously enough Baloo DID have them, he just hid them very well.
* LargeHam: Thanks largely to Creator/JimCummings' voice acting.
* LaughablyEvil: In spades.
* LoveableRogue: Charming despite his own self-absorption.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Something of a narcisistic oaf, and prone to PokeThePoodle on many occasions, however he is a genuine menace to those flying in his realms.
* SkyPirate: Surely you have heard of the most infamous of sky pirates!?
* SurroundedByIdiots: Much more intelligent than his crew for the most part. Given his own cluelessness at times however, it can invert into TheBlindLeadingTheBlind.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: A mixture of French, Spanish and Italian.
* WorthyOpponent: Conveys this treatment towards Baloo at times. On at least one occasion he attacked Baloo without any cargo, seemingly just wanting to spar with him.
* WouldHurtAChild: He has no problem throwing Kit off of his flying ship, the Iron Vulture in "Plunder And Lightning". It's a good thing Baloo saves Kit at the last minute.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Shere Khan]]
[[quoteright:317:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tale_Spin_Shere_Khan_6104.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TonyJay

A stoic and highly powerful businessman, implied to have enormous power over Cape Suzette's economy. Like Baloo and Louie, Khan is swiped and anthropomorphized from ''Disney/TheJungleBook''.
----
!!Tropes associated with Shere Khan:

* AdaptationalBadass: Disney's Shere Khan was already a {{Badass}} compared to the original version, but ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' version was implied to be afraid of bullets. This one ain't. See TheStoic below.
* {{Affably|Evil}} AmbiguouslyEvil: While not the nicest person in the world, it's debatable whether he's evil or not. In any case, he's still genuinely polite.
* AntiVillain: His villainous roles in the show are actually outweighed by the times he assists Baloo.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBaritone: Remember [[Creator/TonyJay who voiced him]].
** BadassInANiceSuit
* BadBoss: When he gets a phone call late at night in "Citizen Khan":
--> '''Shere Khan''': ''(sigh) This will teach me to let my employees go home after a mere sixteen hour workday.''
* BigEntrance: He's very fond of these. "Citizen Khan" has a great example; his plane appears with ominious music, the door opens and he emerges from the shadows. The reaction of the corrupt sheriff and his BumblingSidekick is OhCrap.
* CatsAreMean: At times he falls under this.
* TheChessmaster
* TheComicallySerious: Khan in personality is rather serious and almost sinister. However, his interaction with a lot of other characters (particularly his employees) has something of a slapstick tone at times.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Though less corrupt and more ruthless.
** Played straight in one episode where he creates a fake oil shortage with Don Karnage in order to overprize the fuel.
* DeadpanSnarker: This gem in "Louie’s Last Stand";
--> '''Benson''':''I plan to invest in glow in the dark sunglasses. They’re easy to find during a power failure.''
--> '''Shere Khan''': ''[[SarcasmMode Fascinating, Mr. Benson]] -- and when you find them, you wear them in the dark?''
* DeathGlare: Frequently. If it’s meant for you, ''run!''
* TheDreaded: Even his YesMan is scared of him.
* [[EveryoneHasStandards Khan Has Standards]]: The episodes "Citizen Khan" and "Louie's Last Stand" proved this quite nicely.
* KnightOfCerebus: Played with. While not the most antagonising villain (and even prone to acts of good will), Khan is a much more serious and intimidating figure than most of the other more comical RoguesGallery and is implied to hold a very dangerous amount of power if not for his scruples.
* NobleDemon
* PragmaticVillainy: Khan is merciless to those that get in his way, but savvy enough to know the consequences of [[KickTheDog Kicking the Dog]] too many times, and is generally tough but fair to his associates.
* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: While he will partake in the odd corrupt scheme every once in a while, his moral code prevents him from doing anything exceptionally heinous.
** He has outright stated that his motto is "to always repay your debts and never break a deal".
* TheStoic: Big time. The arguably best example of this is in "From Here to Machinery" when he doesn't even ''flinch'' when gunfire hits the drinking glass he's holding.
* TookALevelInKindness: Shere Khan, while always affable, was designed to be an intimidating and gleefully murderous force of evil for the original ''Jungle Book'' film. In the series, his villainy was far more restrained, and he is shown as far more sympathetic, or at least pragmatic figure in comparison.
* TranquilFury: The master of it, managing to be an incredibly terrifying figure to those around him, without once raising his voice.
* WickedCultured
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Louie]]
[[quoteright:260:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tale_Spin_Louie_4770.gif]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JimCummings

A jiving orangutan and owner of LocalHangOut for air pilots, Louie is Baloo's best friend and occasional comrade in adventures and {{Zany Scheme}}s. Similarly anthropomorphized from ''Disney/TheJungleBook''.
----
!!Tropes associated with Louie:

* ChivalrousPervert: To many of the show's female characters, including Rebecca (who is less than flattered). Occasionally, he and Baloo will compete for the same woman (as in "For Whom the Bell Klangs" and "The Road to Macadamia").
* JiveTurkey: Ya dig, cuz?
* NiceHat: He's rarely seen without it. But when he is...
** BaldOfAwesome
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Baloo.
* WeaksauceWeakness: [[spoiler: He's highly allergic to anchovies.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Mad Dog]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/CharlieAdler
[[quoteright:238:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tale_Spin_Mad_Dog_4066.jpg]]

The whiny, brownnosing, but ultimately disloyal [[EliteMook lackey pirate]] of [[TerribleTrio Don Karnage]]. He is nearly always [[EvilDuo paired with Dumptruck]]. He has a very nasal voicetone. While he follows Karnage out of a sense of greed and fear, he'd turn on him in a moment flat if he thought he could get away with it, and stab him InTheBack (episodes: "Stuck on You", "A Baloo Switcheroo").
----
!!Tropes associated with Mad Dog:

* BadassMustache: A variation; the three whiskers hanging from his snout vaguely resemble FuManchu's mustache.
* BrainsAndBrawn: The brain (more or less) to Dumptruck's brawn.
* DirtyCoward: "Me? Oh, why me? Send Dumptruck! Send Hacksaw!"
* EvilDuo[=/=]ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Dumptruck.
* LazyBum: "Can I help it if I have a hangnail?"
* NiceHat: He always wears his flight helmet.
* PowerTrio: Big/Thin/Short variant (he's the thin one).
* ProfessionalButtKisser: "Well, a thousand groveling pardons, captain, but could we just ask you one little question?"
* TheResenter: "Tell ya the truth, we've grown attached to both of 'em! Keep Karnage!"
* TheSlacker
* SpikesOfVillainy: His outfit includes spiked bracelets.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Dumptruck]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Chuck [=McCann=]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tale_Spin_Dumptruck_4711.jpg]]

He's another [[EliteMook lackey pirate]], definitely the muscle of [[TerribleTrio Don Karnage]]. He is nearly always [[EvilDuo paired with Mad Dog]]. His gruff side comes out when he's all business, but when he's not on the job or angry, he actually reveals a rather jovial, good-natured side. He is, sadly, not the brightest star in the sky. He speaks with a Swedish accent.
----
!!Tropes associated with Dumptruck:

* BrainsAndBrawn: The brawn to Mad Dog's (for want of a better word) brain.
* TheBrute: "[[Franchise/FantasticFour It's clobberin' time]]!"
** ShoutOut: This was pretty much intentional since Chuck [=McCann=] voiced both Dumptruck and The Thing.
* TheDitz: "Oh boy! Vee're goin' fishin'! I love worms. Especially vit' french fries!"
* DogsAreDumb
* DumbMuscle
* EvilDuo[=/=]ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Mad Dog.
* MadeOfIron: During "In Search of Ancient Blunders", he's merely stunned after surviving a PianoDrop.
* NiceHat: It's a top hat with with a feather in it.
* PowerTrio: Big/Thin/Short variant (he's the big one).
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Gibber]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Chuck [=McCann=]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tale_Spin_Gibber_9147.jpg]]

Another of Don Karnage's [[EliteMook pirates]]. Gibber usually stays close to Karnage, ready to whisper some idea or observation to his captain. He seems to be an advisor of sorts.
----
!!Tropes associated with Gibber:

* AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering: Happened at least once when his suggestion for what to do with an experimental jet engine apparently involved selling it in a flea market.
* BullyBulldog
* CaptainObvious: Most of the advice he whispers to his captain tends to make him into this, something said captain finds quite annoying.
* OnlySaneMan: At times. Unfortunately because he doesn't like to speak out loud, he's usually ignored.
* PowerTrio: Big/Thin/Short variant (he's the short one)
* TheUnintelligible: The only time he's ever raised his voice above a whisper too soft to be understood was during the singing scene in the 4 part pilot.

A OneShotCharacter who became very popular with the fans, Katie is a feisty AdventurerArchaeologist who gets Baloo and Louie to help her find the lost city of Tinnabula. She appears in the two-part episode "For Whom the Bell Klangs".
----
!!Tropes associated with Katie:

* AdventurerArchaeologist
* AdventurerOutfit
* DamselOutOfDistress
* {{Determinator}}: She's determined to find the lost city of Tinnabula no matter what.
* FieryRedhead
** SignificantGreenEyedRedhead
* MsFanservice
* NerdsAreSexy: She is literally a fox.
* OneShotCharacter
* SheCleansUpNicely: When she dresses up for a formal dinner.

->'''Voiced by:''' Liz Georges

Another popular OneShotCharacter[=/=]AdventurerArchaeologist, Myra is the Minister of Culture and eventual museum curator for the small desert nation of Aridia. During the episode "In Search of Ancient Blunders", Baloo and Wildcat help her defend the upside down pyramid of King Utmost from both a rampaging {{mummy}} and the Air Pirates.
----
!!Tropes associated with Myra:

* AdventurerArchaeologist
* AdventurerOutfit
* BadassBookworm: She seemingly disappears from a fight scene... and then stops Dumptruck from clobbering Baloo [[PianoDrop by dropping a piano on Dumptruck's head]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Her epic confrontation with the mummy.
* BrainyBrunette
* {{Meganekko}}
* MsFanservice
* NerdsAreSexy: Though not as sexy as Katie.
* NiceGirl: She's as friendly and polite as you could hope... most of the time.
* OneNameOnly: Her last name is never revealed in the episode, but according to {{Fanon}} it's Foxworthy.
* OneShotCharacter
* ShesGotLegs
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses

[[folder:Princess Lotta Lamour]]
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tale_spin_lotta_lamour_5887.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KathSoucie

Yet another desert vixen OneShotCharacter with a fan following. Lotta is the lovely, lively princess of the titular nation in "The Road to Macadamia", and she teams up with Baloo and Louie to save her beloved kingdom from EvilChancellor Trample.
----
!!Tropes associated with Lotta:
* BadassPrincess: She's not afraid to confront Trample ("Touch me and you're dust, buster!"), and during a fight she knocks out several of the chancellor's {{Mooks}} with a big mallet.
* BrainyBrunette
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: And how!
* {{Expy}}[=/=]NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Since "The Road to Macadamia" is an AffectionateParody of the ''Film/RoadTo'' movies, it's fitting that Lotta is based on and named after Dorothy Lamour, the usual female lead in the films.
* PinkMeansFeminine
* PrincessesPreferPink
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: In contrast with her bumbling father King Amok, a HorribleJudgeOfCharacter who trusted the ObviouslyEvil Trample despite Lotta's well-founded suspicions.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: She knew that Trample was up to no good before Baloo and Louie showed up, and with their help she takes him down.
