|First Quote:||“For me? Aw, you shouldn’t ‘a!”||A bit about Kit:||Kit is a young, orphaned bear-cub full of spirit and spunk, and is also Baloo’s best friend, partner and navigator. Before he met Baloo, he was a member of Don Karnage’s air pirates. His past before that is a mystery. After spending a year with the air pirates, Kit claims that he ‘got sick of them’, and after Don Karnage stole a valuable jewel from Shere Khan, Kit decided to make his move – to take the jewel, leave the pirates and begin a new life. While trying to escape Karnage (in the pilot episode), he runs into Baloo (literally) at Louie’s place. We get the impression that Kit is fearful and hesitant of trusting adults. But in this same episode, Baloo saves Kit from Karnage, and this appears to be a turning point for Kit. He opens up to Baloo, and begins to trust and admire him. Kit now refers to Baloo as his ‘Papa Bear’, and loves him life a father.
Considering Kit is a former pirate, he has suprisingly good manners and is highly respectful of adults – when he initially introduced himself to Rebecca, for example, he took off his hat, and he refers to her as ‘Miz Cunningham’.
One great part about Kit has got to be his hobby – air surfing. Air surfing involes Kit soaring through their air (usually towed behind a plane) on his boomerang shaped board known as his air foil. Who knows where he learnt how to do this or where he got his board.
Being on his own and having had to fend for himself all of his life, Kit is very independent and street wise. In a way, it’s kind of ironic that Kit is one of the cutest characters in Talespin (second cutest – Molly takes first prize). Acting much older than his years, he hates being treated life a kid, and loaths the fact that he is to young to get his pilots license.
