Let me tell you something, Balto. A dog can not make this journey alone, but... Maybe a wolf can.
— Boris to Balto
Boris Goosinov, or Uncle Boris as he is called by Muk, Luk, and sometimes Balto, is a Russian-born snow goose who raised Balto from a pup. He is the deuteragonist of the first film and the secondary tritagonist in the sequels. He speaks with a heavy Russian accent. In the first film, Boris mentions his last name is Goosinov. He was voiced by the late Bob Hoskins and currently Charles Fleischer in the sequels.

Personality

Boris in the first film, had great faith in Balto when he left to save Nome. Boris also was afraid of the local bully Steele. In the 2nd film, Boris told Balto that even though he didn't want to believe it, Aleu would be half-wolf. Boris was also revealed to be superstitious and believed in mystical stuff. In the 3rd film he developed a crush on a goose named Stella, but lied about flying with her to hide his fear of heights. His habit is gulping nervously.

Appearance

Boris has the appearance of the average snow goose with white feathers with black tipped wings, tail-feathers and eyebrows, but has a little tuff on his head, and a slight crick in his neck. Also visible is his bags from age under his eyes, making him look quite old.

Trivia

  • Boris's voice actors, Bob Hoskins in the first film and Charles Fleischer in the sequels, both starred together in Disney's and Touchstone's film Who Framed Roger Rabbit as Eddie Valiant and the voice of Roger Rabbit, respectively.
  • In the closed captions for Balto II: Wolf Quest, it says that Boris has a Yiddish accent.
