Welcome to TaleSpin Source!


(Click Play to listen to the TaleSpin theme)

Talespin is a Disney TV series, aired in 1990 as part of the "Disney Afternoon" TV programme, and lasted for 65 episodes.

A plane crashes...
Following the success of previous series such as Gummi Bears or Ducktales, TaleSpin is a mix of genres : comedy, adventure, drama...

The story relates the adventures of Baloo, as a bush pilot in the 1930's. Careless and easy-going, he ends up working for a business woman named Rebecca for her air service : "Higher for Hire".
But life in the little town of Cape Suzette isn't easy, as the "air pirates" leaded by the dangerous and big-ego pirate Don Karnage, hijack and plunder the planes without mercy. Kit, Baloo and Rebecca

Baloo's life is about to change when one day, he meets with a young orphan bear : Kit, who despite being cute, seems to have a dark past...

On first sight, the show may seem like a Jungle Book spin-off, as three famous characters (Baloo, Louie and Shere Khan) are present - but this is VERY far from the truth, the show being very unique and creative on almost every side : clever and varied stories, great characters, good animation and orchestral musics... 

And while this was a series "marketed" with kids in mind, it has different levels of reading, so that both kids and adults alike will love the stories. The show never hesitates to mention "hard" topics : money problems, jealousy, treason, war, death...while staying true to the Disney values!

In a few words, this is an animated gem that Disney should be proud of, and should SHOW it!

A new Ducktales series in 2017!!!

 

What comes at a total shock for me, totally unexpected coming from Disney, is the confirmation that Disney will be making a whole new series for "Ducktales", coming on Disney XD in 2017! 

Ducktales reboot

The official press release states that the new series is a reboot, while keeping the same main characters and even side characters (Gizmoduck, anyone?)

For the youngest readers here who don't know about the series, this is the most cult and most popular animated series of Disney in the 80's/90's! It's a series based on the famous comics released by Carl [...]

A tribute to 2D Animation

 

This video will speak for itself!

I think it's quite beautiful and I like they were able to include so many animated features in it, with a lot of non-Disney which are actually Sources sites here! (Balto, Cat's don't dance, Anastasia, Spirit...)

This video was noticed and reported by "The animation guild blog", and here's an article to it : http://www.rotoscopers.com/2015/02/11/check-out-this-loving-tribute-to-2d-animation/
