Baloo vs Yogi Bear

For a Friday post I thought we could have some fun by pitting two famous bears against each other. Fighting in today's battle is Baloo from TaleSpin and Yogi Bear from The Yogi Bear Show.



* Can fly a plane without thumbs

* He's a bear and has a job as a pilot

* Once donated his entire paycheck to the starving munchkins of The Wizard of Oz

* Has a sidekick

* Can easily fight off air pirates

* He knows who killed JFK


* People have heard rumors about what goes on in the plane with Kit

* Crashes a lot

* Got expelled from school for downloading porn in the library

* Doesn't wear pants (which doesn't help the rumors)

* Thinks Paris Hilton is a good person

* Doesn't know how to read



* Has a knack for stealing picnic baskets

* Has a sidekick

* Saved a litter of kittens from a burning hospital

* Snappy dresser

* Invented meat loaf

* Is tight with Yogi Berra


* Hangs out with a young bear, kinda creepy

* Goes #2 in the geyser holes in the park

* Gave the ranger an STD

* Doesn't have a steady job

* Doesn't pay child support to Kanga from Winnie the Pooh

* Has a severe gambling problem

My vote is for Baloo. I loved TaleSpin. Anybody play the NES game? Who do you think is the better bear?



I watched Talespin all the time, but I never could figure out if Baloo was actually the bear from the jungle book.... They're totally unrelated, right?

Baloo all the way. Great as a pilot, great as a jungle bear. Plus I still enjoy randomly annoying people by singing the tailspin theme.

The fact that Yogi is a snappy dresser has won my vote..

I don't know this Baloo, but his support for the Munchkins wins my vote!

You brought way to many valid points to the table. I vote for a draw, but edge to Yogi due to his Hanna B. political connection.
