Quote "For me? Aw, you shouldn't have."

Kit Cloudkicker serves as navigator aboard Baloo's plane, the Sea Duck, which is in the service of the air cargo service, Higher for Hire. For the most part, Kit was voiced by R.J. Williams, while occasionally, Alan Roberts did his voice.

Physical appearance Edit

Kit is a twelve-year-old, brown furred, anthropomorphic male bear cub. He wears a green sweatshirt, white dress shirt, a blue and red baseball cap worn backwards and has the ability to "cloud surf" (also referred to in the show as "cloud skiing"). The baseball cap was a gift to Kit from Baloo, as a sign of friendship and trust.

Personality Edit

His ambition was to become a pilot and to purchase his own aircraft.

Occasionally showing a selfish streak, Kit sometimes put his dreams ahead of those of his friends. Having lived on his own for most of his life, Kit's distrust of adults was apparent in the show. He warmed to Baloo only after being given the chance to fly the Sea Duck, and even then was ready to leave for greener pastures.

Nevertheless, he looked upon the other members of the "Higher for Hire" company as a surrogate family, affectionately referring to Baloo as "Papa Bear" on occasion. He clearly demonstrated his fondness for Rebecca Cunningham's adorable and very beautiful tomboy daughter, Molly, on a number of occasions, having been seen giving Molly "Piggy back" rides, and on one occasion rescuing her on his airfoil (the device Kit uses for cloud surfing - see below). Baloo gives him the nickname "Little Britches".

Kit once chastised Baloo saying “You can't tell me what to do! You're NOT my dad!” - this was a decision Kit would come to regret[2].

Skills and abilities Edit

Kit had the ability to cloud surf; using a crescent shaped metal device called an airfoil and a regular cord attached to the back of the Sea Duck allows him to 'surf' in a similar fashion to someone water skiing, hence this is also referred to in the show as "cloud skiing". It was not made clear where Kit learned this skill, but he demonstrates at numerous times throughout the various episodes that he is incredibly adept at it. Baloo would often give his permission for Kit to tow behind the Sea Duck when appropriate, trusting in Kit's skill to let him have some fun. Baloo also had enough confidence in Kit to keep himself safe on the airfoil when separated and under attack, or when Kit had to be outside for something important. Outside of such situations however, he did not like Kit to take unnecessary risks, such as doing dangerous tricks or stunts.

History Edit

Being a homeless orphan, Kit at some point came to live with the Air Pirates, under Don Karnage's tutelage. After a year however, he eventually "got sick" of them and attempted to break out on his own. He first encountered Baloo when he hid in the Sea Duck to escape from the Air Pirates because they were trying to find him.

Trivia Edit

  • Despite having formerly been an Air Pirate only being mentioned in the pilot of the show, in the comics it is brought up frequently by both him and the pirates.
  • Kit's name is also an abbreviation of the name "Kristopher", though Kit is never acknowledged like this.
