Nanuk is a minor character in the 1990 show, TaleSpin.
He is a large polar bear who lives in the Arctic in an igloo and speaks with an Inuit accent, and to whom Baloo delivers pizzas in the episode "Pizza Pie in the Sky". He is one of the customers of Baloo and Louie's "Pizza Pie in the Sky" pizza air delivery business, but the first delivery to him involves the wrong-sized pizza, prompting two more repeated deliveries to him, each of which also go awry.
He is a polar bear that wears a purple-coat. He also has purple eye corners around his eyes, scruffy eyebrows, and a grey muzzle.
- Despite being labeled as a Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus), he has a aggressive and striking appearance that is similar to a Pizzly, which is a cross between a Grizzly Bear and a Polar Bear combined.
- He was almost voiced by Jim Cummings. However, that idea was scrapped, and the role has since been given to Dan Gilvezan.
- He is possibly similar in size to Tiny, another polar bear character in the show.
