August 16th – Creature you’d want to adopt (An animal or creature character you’d want as a companion)

My first thought for this prompt was the Mooncalfs from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them but then I thought they would need a lot of looking after and I’m not sure they’d make a great companion. Then it hit me. The character I’d want as a companion is

I love Baloo from the Jungle book to Tailspin. His character is the fun-loving, friendly guy who lives a responsibility free lifestyle. He puts himself in danger to help Mowgli when Shere Kahn has him in is sights.

Now as I mentioned he is the fun-loving guy and not one to shy away from a performance

I think the reason why I like Baloo so much is because when I was little every Saturday morning was my time with my dad. He carved out time in his busy schedule to make sure he had time with me as he was working two jobs. Saturday Afternoons was Disney TV shows which consisted of Ducktails, Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers, Gummibears and Tailspin. I’m still close with my dad but he always makes me feel nostalgic.

Baloo isn’t necessarily a character I’d want to adopt I think he’d be way too messy and not very domesticated (even if he does turn out to be a pilot) but I would love him as a companion and we could sing amazing duets.

🎵Look for the bare necessities 🎵

  1. Oh my goodness, I love this character and I remember watching this too. Baloo totally cracked me up and I love all of this performances. I think it’s special, the time that you and your dad shared and I liked hearing about that. Those are some of the best things in life. This is such a fun loving character and he would be that one messy friend that you’d just love, even though he is a messy.

    1. Those Saturday mornings with my dad are something I cherised ☺️. Doesn’t matter if Baloo is messy he would certainly make you forget about your problems.

    1. I didn’t even think of Toothless. How great of a character he’d be? You could fly off and go to where ever you wanted and if you got into any trouble well you’d have a dragon to help you

  2. LAURA!!! I love that you chose a character as a companion rather than to adopt! And Baloo is a perfect one for that… I also watched Chip and Dale and Ducktails as a kid with my brothers and we just loved it all! I also love the song the Bare Necessities! It’s such a great mantra to have. And I love that you shared about your dad… I’ve got to admire a man who made time for you even working 2 jobs! I bet you love him so much. ❤️

    1. My parents are really something. They’ve been through hell and back but still make time for their kids and grandkids. Everytime I see these cartoons I remember the time together with my dad before my sisters came along. Baloo is special to me because of it ☺️
