Baloo Bear is a bush pilot; he used to own an air cargo business ("Baloo's Air Service") and a plane (the "Sea Duck") but lost everything when he was not able to pay the loan for his plane.
Now he works for Rebecca, in order to repay his debts and get back his plane.
He also stumbled upon a young orphan (Kit), who (due to a few events) consider him almost like a father.
His two other friends are Wildcat (the mechanic) and Louie, the bartender of the place where Baloo is spending most of his time...
Also called :
"Poppa Bear" (Kit)
"Mr. Baloo" (other characters)
From the outside :
* Overweight, lazy, allergic to work, rude, slob, careless, irresponsible, sloppy, unreliable.
* Messes up everything Rebecca asks him to do (even mailing a letter!!)
* Gets very easily attracted to fame and has a very big ego
From the inside :
* Excellent pilot, never hesitates to save anyone in trouble, golden heart, always finds a way to correct his mistakes.
* Torn between being a father for Kit, and being his best friend
between liking Rebecca, and wanting to quit his job / buy back the Sea
* Torn between having fun, and doing his job correctly
