After how much I enjoyed my first 30 day challenge, I thought it would be great fun to start a brand new one, about one of my favourite things! Kudos to PonyTaorPonyBoy for originally posting this, I’m really excited, yay!
Picking my first character was a bit difficult, as I didn’t want any overlap in the rest. So as much as I’d have loved to pick Sully from Monsters Inc. or Scar from Lion King, this one had to go to…
Baloo is voiced by Phil Harris, who also voiced Little John in Robin Hood and Thomas O’Malley in The Aristocats (my second favourite Disney character). He’s a legend in his own right. He adores Mowgli, takes him under his wing, and teaches him “The Bare Necessities”. If I were lost in a jungle, The Bare Necessities is definitely all I’d need to know.
Although it’s difficult to make Baloo any cooler than he already is, SOMEHOW IT HAPPENED in the updated live action version of The Jungle Book, released last year. Baloo is voiced by Bill Murray – what doesn’t get better when it’s voiced by Bill Murray?
