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!

NIMH News - fan works!

 

**EDITED!  (See below in the section about articles)

As far as I know, we haven't seen any recent fan news, from any source (and if I am wrong, then I definitely do apologize) which featured any fan works.  People do enjoy having their works get attention and feedback, and fan news entries can be a big help in that area.  So today's Secret of NIMH fan news is all about fan submissions! 

So far, over on The Secret of NIMH Source, we've seen some nice fan art and images, a couple of good articles (courtesy of yours truly!), and some informative forum [...]

Ice Age Source now live!

 

Welcome to the Ice Age! Ice Age Source is our third English Source site to open up this year, along with The Secret of NIMH Source and Gravity Falls Source. The site is dedicated to the hit animated franchise by 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios, featuring the chilly adventures of Manny, Sid, Diego, and of course the show stealer himself, Scrat the sabre-tooth squirrel.

In the past, Ice Age Source was only available as a French site, until now. The French content along with the site's design made by Nakou, was translated to the English side by me (Karlamon) using [...]
