Baloo

Baloo is the wonderful, larger then life character from Walt Disney's 1967 film 'The Jungle Book.' He can also be found in other films such as 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse,' 'The Jungle Book 2,' and he even has a cameo in 'The Lion King 1 '.' In TV shows he can be found in 'Jungle Cubs,' 'House of Mouse,' and in one of my personal favorites from the Disney Afternoon, 'TaleSpin.' He can also be found in a few different video games such as Disney Universe, The Jungle Book, Kinect Disneyland Adventures, The Jungle Book Groove Party, and TaleSpin. Finally he can be found in various merchandise such as pins, books, vinylmations, toys, and clothing.

During the films he lives in the Jungle, but during TaleSpin he lives in the town of Cape Suzette. He has many friends that help him along the way such as King Louie, Kit Cloudkicker, Mowgli, Colonel Hathi, Shanti, Bagheera, Ranjan, the Cunningham's, and Sergeant Dunder to name a few. His enemies include Don Karnage, Shere Khan, Colonel Spigot, and Kaa.

Baloo is an overweight sloth bear, during the films he has no outfits just his normal blueish gray fur. But in TaleSpin he has quite a few different costumes he wears, most notably his maroon flight hat, and his yellow shirt. Baloo is really a parental figure in both The Jungle Book and TaleSpin. In the Jungle Book he becomes a father figure to Mowgli while in TaleSpin he is a father figure to Kit Cloudkicker who calls Baloo 'Papa Bear' and he calls Kit 'Little Britches.'

He has been voiced by quite a few people over the years such as Phil Harris, John Goodman, Ed Gilbert, Joel McCrary, Steve Curtis, and Pamela Segall.

Baloo can be found in Disney parks around the world, but most notably in Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade, Fantasmic!, Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade, Mickey Mouse Revue, Disney Stars and Motorcars Parade, Celebrate a Dreams Come True Parade, and in some versions of It's a Small World.
