* Several episodes imply that Rebecca actually had a FriendlessBackground, her attempts to mingle with high society usually fail because she is actually poor, while, [[ValuesDissonance being the thirties]], she sometimes earns scorn as an entrepreneur due to being a woman. Generally her only close friendships shown onscreen tend to be among Baloo's team. This also adds FridgeBrilliance to Becky's {{Tsundere}} attitude and frustration whenever Baloo doesn't seem to appreciate her.

* Not to mention in the episode "Your Baloo's In The Mail" where Rebecca says her mail with her contest winning ticket wasn't important because she fears Baloo won't take her request seriously, but is insistent that Baloo ''must'' use the ''fastest'' mail service around. If Rebecca had been honest with what her mail was, or if Baloo had just listened to her and realized that [[CaptainObvious if someone is so insistent about using the best postal service method around then their mail must be important regardless of what else they tell you]], a lot of trouble would been avoided, meaning they had two different ways to resolve the problem and in the end failed to do either which led to the DownerEnding that upset so many fans.

** This is also the reason why Hathi and Kaa were ''not'' included in the series: an elephant, and especially a snake, is more difficult to anthropomorphize compared to a bear, ape or tiger.

Klang, is a snake).

to:

** Added to this is that while it's not outright stated, it's pretty much canon that Kit is an orphan. So it's entirely possible that Carnage lured him aboard his ship with [[BlatantLies pretty falsehoods]] and by the time Kit realized what he had gotten into, he had nowhere to go.


** A date on a newspaper and a comment on the Yankees, both found in the "Plunder and Lightning" pilot episode, would place the show in an alternate history 1941. Concerning the Sea Duck's age, Baloo may have been rounding up by a few years. To handwave it, you could actually just blame it all on Wildcat, the mechanic. Judging by his skill in and odd manner of fixing things, it isn't too hard to believe that there is not a single inch of the Sea Duck that was part of the original plane.

Added DiffLines:

** This also explains why the Talespin version of Louie is depicted as, oddly, having a more ape-like pose than he did in the movie, whereas all the other ''Jungle Book'' characters underwent an AnthropomorphicShift. ''He's not trying to be a human anymore.''



to:

* While Rebecca does run a tight ship on Baloo, she sometimes can be just as strict toward Kit (though Kit seems able to [[Main/{{Pun}} bear]] it more easily than Baloo). But consider this, when Rebecca first met Baloo, he already took Kit in as his navigator and a de-facto adopted son, and the way Baloo acted towards her as well as how messy his office looked when she first arrived likely gave her the first impression that Baloo wasn't the best of role models, So Rebecca likely felt she should try to make Baloo a more responsible and disciplined employee so he'd be a better influence on Kit.

* "A Baloo Switcheroo", the episode with the soul switching idol: They cooked up a zany scheme to seed clouds, even created a hurricane by accident, in an effort to create lightning, when clearly, just a few seconds before, we are shown that the idol's power could be triggered by a mere wall socket, which is how Rebecca and Karnage are switched. Karnage's tail gets stuck in a wall socket while they both held the idol and were looking at it, yet nobody seems to notice this fact.

Added DiffLines:

* The choice of the ''Jungle Book'' characters who made it into the cast, compared to the others. Baloo already works on this hind legs like a human in the original movie, so he'd fit easier in an anthropomorphic society. Louie's whole deal in the movie is that he ''wants'' to be human. And Shere Khan comments about how business is like a jungle himself in the pilot.


* "For Whom The Bell Klangs". Thaddeus E. Klang plans to make use of a city that ''works'' on music. It adds another layer to his scheme of searching Katie Dodd instead of studying the Tinabulan language - he's a snake, who have different hearing capablities and were widely believed to be deaf.

* "For Whom The the Bell Klangs".Klangs". The two-parter's main antagonist is Thaddeus E. Klang, a villain who seeks to use the bells of Tinabula for his own ends. He kidnaps [[AdventurerArchaeologist Katie Dodd]], who has the Three Bells of Tinabula in her possession ''and'' can interpret Tinabulan hieroglyphs. Tinabula is a city that works on sound.

* "For Whom The Bell Klangs". It's kinda strange the city works on musical tones. And then, why would [[BigBad Thaddeus E. Klang]] necessarily use Katie Dodd in his plans? You realize: [[spoiler: he's a snake, and snakes have different hearing capablities than mammals.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Baloo and his friends live in a fictional counterpart of the United States called "Usland" (never stated in-series, but according to WordOfGod); in their universe, the fictional version of the Soviet Union is Thembria (stated in-series). When taken together, the names can be taken as puns (us = the USA/Usland; them = the USSR/Thembria).
