Becoming Baloo by Monkey-Scientist Becoming Baloo by Monkey-Scientist
Ah yes, a body-swap classic: The Talespin episode "Baloo Switcheroo". This was an episode where Kit Cloudkicker and everyone's favorite dancing pilot bear Baloo swap bodies due to a magic idol. After they swap bodies, this weird yet rather unique perspective shot is given. Kit (in Baloo's body) is staring at Baloo (in Kit's body) as he tries to make sense of the situation. I really love the shot of Kit's body in the eyes of Baloo, it's a really cool perspective shot that most body-swaps tend not to do. Though I don't get why he's smiling, I never understood. I mean Kit (as Baloo) is supposed to be freaked out, yet he's got this rather creepy grin going on. Maybe he realizes that now that he's in an adult, he can go to R rated movies without parental supervision. :D

Don Karnage and Rebecca also swap bodies later on in the episode, though only for a few minutes of screentime. So yeah, the swap itself was very fun. It's your typical body-swap story, but it involves Baloo! I mean, who wouldn't want to swap bodies with Baloo? Well, I mean Kit doesn't, but I'm sure other people do! Baloo is one handsome bear. :) There was also a monkey archaeologist in this episode, but sadly he did not get in on any of the body-swapping. And unfortunately, there was no swap between Louie and Shere Kahn, which I think would've been really awesome and hilarious. It would've been great seeing Shere Kahn trying to run a juice bar successfully as Louie, especially when trying to mix drinks with big meaty ape paws :D

Yeah, I wish they would've stayed that way as well. Kit looked good as an old fat bear. :D

It would be! Sadly, long-term swaps are rare in cartoons.

This honestly wants me to do some sort of bear related story or something.

Even though I didn't watch Tailspin (or at least I don't remember doing so) Baloo as he is im the show remains one of my fave TF subjects because honestly... he's kinda handsome lol.

i did see a clip of this episode when they swap. It's interesting how they did it with the flashing lights and Baloo and  kit switching places. Though I like to imagine it was the kinda body swap that involves both of them physically transforming into each other rather than simply swapping minds. But that's just moi ^.^

I'd love it if they transformed into each other, to be honest. There's not enough TF swaps out there, sadly. :D

Agree, though tbh i would just love to see more TFs into Baloo in general.
Like the idea of someone turning into a cartoon dad-ish bear XD
