* 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 ''WesternAnimation/{{Kissyfur}}''.
* 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.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The last 11 episodes were completely unavailable on DVD for many years, but they were finally released exclusively through the Disney Movie Club in June of 2013, and through stores a couple of years later. This also makes ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' the first of WesternAnimation/TheDisneyAfternoon shows to completely avert this trope.
** Played straight regarding the original feature-length version of the pilot, which had several additional or alternate scenes compared to the syndicated version of the four episodes, as well as an additional song. The likelihood of that ever seeing a home video release is slim.
* MarketBasedTitle: The show somehow became ''Captain Baloo'' in Germany[[http://youtu.be/scf9-faOHvY?t=8m38s]]. Maybe Disney thought that the PunnyName title won't translate well into German. It's either that or they were trying to compete with [[Series/CaptainBluebear another famous bear captain]] in Germany.
* MissingEpisode: Both "Flying Dupes" and "Last Horizons" were pulled from circulation.
* NamesTheSame: Dougie Benson from "Louie's Last Stand" is no relation to comedian [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doug_Benson Doug Benson]].
* TheOtherDarrin: Kit was voiced by two actors--first Alan Roberts, then R.J. Williams. "A Bad Reflection on You" uses both Roberts and Williams; it's difficult to tell them apart, but you can do it if you're familiar with the subtle differences in their voices and you listen carefully.
** R.J. Williams is Kit in "A Bad Reflection on You" part 1, and Alan Roberts is Kit in the "A Bad Reflection on You" part 2. The key to telling their voices apart is that R.J. Williams, who was Kit in "Mommy For A Day" and "Captains Outrageous" sounds a little bit older than Alan Roberts who was Kit in "Stormy Weather" and "The Time Bandit".
* TheOtherMarty: Allegedly Phil Harris was hired to record lines for at least five episodes before Disney decided to replace him with soundalike Ed Gilbert (see below), who also rerecorded Harris' work.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: This ain't the first time R.J. Williams (Kit) and Ed Gilbert (Baloo) worked on a cartoon together. An Creator/{{NBC}} cartoon called ''WesternAnimation/{{Kissyfur}}'' had Williams and Gilbert as the main character and his father, respectively.
* RoleReprisal: More than ''Voice Actress Reprisal'' instead in the Mexican Spanish dub: Rebecca Cunningham is voiced by Diana Santos, who curiously voiced Mowgli in the dub of ''Disney/TheJungleBook''. In the same dub, the late Carlos Petrel (who voiced Shere Khan) reprised that role in the series.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The Sea Duck was originally intended as a vehicle for [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Launchpad]] [[WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck [=McQuack=]]] for his own cargo service in an unused story idea for ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''.
** [[Disney/TheJungleBook Phil Harris]] was apparently to play Baloo again for the show, however his vocal range was thought to have aged too much following auditions, and soundalike Ed Gilbert took the role instead.
** Some people who worked on the show, however feel Phil Harris still sounded young enough to voice Baloo, and the real reason he was passed over was because he would have been too expensive to pay every episode.
*** In the writers' bible, Shere Khan was named "Mr. Downs", and Don Karnage was named "Anthrax" ([[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal and wore no pants]]). Also, Spigot and Dunder were originally designed as cats.
* Creator/DonRosa wrote "It Came from Beneath the Sea Duck" and "I Only Have Ice for You".
