High adventure in the skies and on the ground are a daily occurrence for Jungle Book's
Baloo in this second volume of 27 Disney Talespin
episodes. Baloo, his sidekick Kit Cloudkicker, boss Rebecca Cunningham, and mechanic Wildcat operate a fledgling airplane charter service "Higher for Hire" that's continually on the brink of bankruptcy and is seemingly destined to land one complicated job after another. From archeological digs sabotaged by evil villains to treasure hunts-gone-wrong, half-baked money-making business schemes, Baloo's return to school, and some crazy schemes to preserve the idealism of childhood for Kit and Rebecca's young daughter Molly, Baloo and the gang can consistently be counted upon to become entangled in one sticky situation after another. Friend Louie the swinging nightclub operator is an integral part of several episodes as is the evil Don Carnage and the formidable Shere Khan. A host of new characters include old-time flyer Joe McGee, woman archeologist Katie Dodd, the dastardly Thaddeus Klang, and the Queen of Walla Walla Bing Bang. Baloo's comical bumbling and uncompromising resolve to stand up for his friends make this is a fun adventure series with a nice message about friendship. (Ages 3 - 10) --Tami Horiuchi
