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!

New Animation Source forum style!

 

Until recently, I had never noticed that the default style for the Animation Source forums was a bit...ugly. Bland, white and grey, without even a proper site logo. And yet, most of you who aren't old members had this style!

So, I've worked today on that issue, and here's a totally new forum style for you!

New forum style
Much better, don't you think?

Also, I have reworked the creation of forum styles entirely. They were a pain to make, which explains why there were so few, and most were poorly made.
Now, it'll be very easy for site builders to create new styles, so hopefully [...]

Music player updated

 

JWPlayer

 

I have updated the left menu music player (that you can find on almost all sites) to the latest version, and customized the look so it fits better.

The titles of the tracks were usually not readable (only the first letters), I have removed the thumbnails so the title is now correctly displayed!

If some of you get errors, try to clear the cache of your browser. It should solve the problem. (CTRL + F5)
