One day, as Baloo reads the newspaper, he finds out that Cape Suzette is holding a flying contest, where the winner will recieve a lifetime work contract. To win the contest, the competitors have to collect ten cargo crates from different places around the world in the shortest amount of time. It isn't just Higher for Hire who's interested in entering the contest. Shere Khan of Shere Khan Industries also enters the contest. The City Official announces that Shere Khan Industries and Higher for Hire are the two finalists, and as decided by a fair coin toss, Shere Khan Industries will compete first. Even with attacks from Don Karnage and his Air Pirates, Shere Khan Industries makes a seven-day delivery record. In order to win the contest, Baloo and Kit must beat Shere Khan's record, which won't be easy with attacks from Don Karnage and his Air Pirates.

The game is a cross between a 2D sidescroller and a ShootEmUp for up to two players, playing as either Baloo or Kit Cloudkicker. The goal of each level is to find at least ten cargo crates in order to unlock the exit.

Not to be confused with [[VideoGame/TaleSpinCapcom the Nintendo version of the game]] released by Creator/{{Capcom}} for the UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem in 1991, and ported to the UsefulNotes/GameBoy in 1992, or [[VideoGame/TaleSpinInteractiveDesigns the Turbo-Grafx 16 version of the game]] released by Interactive Designs in 1991 for the UsefulNotes/TurboGrafx16.

!! This game provides examples of:
* AbsenteeActor: Molly, Wildcat, and Louie do not appear in this game, despite being main characters on the TV series.
* AirborneAircraftCarrier: The Iron Vulture (which is referred to as the Iron Claw in the game), which serves as the FinalBoss.
* BratsWithSlingshots: A slingshot is Kit Cloudkicker's basic attack. While it is able to attack enemies at a further distance than Baloo's paddleball, it's only half as powerful.
* CharacterSelectForcing: If a one-player game is played with Kit, the flight stages are a lot more difficult. The computer controls the Sea Duck, which can sometimes cause it to bypass power-ups necessary to beat the stages, specifically, health power-ups that keep the Sea Duck from taking too much damage. To beat these stages with Kit, the best advice is to play a two-player game so that another player can control the Sea Duck. However, if a second player is unavailable, the best choice you have is to play a one-player game as Baloo. Thankfully, this problem was fixed in the Game Gear port.
* CoOpMultiplayer: In a two-player game, Player One is always Baloo, and Player Two is always Kit. This feature is notably absent from the Game Gear port.
* CoolPlane: The Sea Duck, especially during the final battle with the Iron Vulture.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Shere Khan. He wants Shere Khan Industries to win the contest so he can acquire Higher for Hire in a hostile takeover.
* DramaticThunder: Used in the Game Over screen, when Shere Khan wins the contest and acquires Higher for Hire.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Baloo attacks his enemies with a paddle ball. It's twice as powerful as Kit's slingshot, but can only attack enemies at a short distance.
* ItsAWonderfulFailure: If you get a Game Over, Shere Khan wins the contest and buys out Hire For Higher, complete with DramaticThunder and [[SoundtrackDissonance unfitting music]].
* JungleJapes: The Jungle, which serves as the first level.
* LethalLavaLand: The Pirate's Hideout, which takes place in a dormant volcano, and serves as the ninth level. Baloo and Kit must fly the Sea Duck through it. This level is entirely omitted from the Game Gear version.
* MacGuffin: Baloo and Kit must collect at least ten cargo crates from each level before unlocking the exit.
* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: The alligator enemies, which slap Baloo or Kit with their tails.
* PowerUpFood: Hamburgers restore lost health, and ice cream temporarily freezes all enemies.
* RuinsForRuinsSake: Italy, Greece, and India, which serve as the third, fourth, and sixth levels, respectively.
* ShiftingSandLand: Egypt, which serves as the fifth level.
* SkyPirate: Don Karnage and his henchmen, especially Mad Dog, Dump Truck, and Gibber (who are referred to as The Weasel, Brutus, and Blaster, respectively, in the game), all three of whom are fought as bosses. Eventually, Karnage himself becomes a boss.
* SkyscraperCity: The Lost City, New York, and San Francisco, which serve as the second, seventh, and eighth levels, respectively.
* SoundtrackDissonance: Surprisingly cheery music plays in the Game Over screen, wherein Hire For Higher is bought out by Shere Khan. The thunder and lightning in the background certainly does not help matters.
* TimedMission: Kit and Baloo have only seven days to beat Shere Khan's record and win the contract. Collecting clock power-ups turns back time.
* UnexpectedShmupLevel: Happens fairly frequently. Baloo and Kit use the Sea Duck to travel from one country to the next, all the while dodging Don Karnage and his Air Pirates.
* TheUnfought: Shere Khan. He is only seen in a cutscene at the beginning of the game, but is interested in entering the contest as part of his plan to acquire Higher for Hire.
* AWinnerIsYou: Your reward for beating the game is a shot of Baloo and Kit in front of Higher For Hire above the words, "Congratulations! You win the city contract" as balloons fly into the sky.
* WorldTour: Baloo and Kit travel around the world to collect crates and beat Shere Khan's seven-day record. Among their locations are Italy, Greece, Egypt, India, New York, and San Francisco.
