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!

Inside Out wins big at Annie Awards

 

Pixar’s Inside Out was the movie that brought the studio back to the spot light, and now stands as one of the most critically-loved animated features of the decade. It was no surprise that Pixar would get a lot of accolades for this film, but it became the big stand out at ASIFA-Hollywood’s annual Annie Awards where it won almost all the feature film categories.


Inside Out was this year's big winner at the Annie Awards.

Inside Out took home ten of the eleven feature film awards including Best Animated Feature. The only exceptions being Best Animated [...]

Site updates!

 

 

The updates are small, but I would like to mention that the merchandise page is now complete... for the most part. lol There's one other tab that I need to work on, but I was at a loss as to what to include there, and I wanted to get this project out of the way. But when I do eventally do finish that tab (which I've deactivated for now), I'll see that it be added to a future news article. That aside, I created the pages in way that shows a picture of the item (which links to the product on Amazon), then a description next to it.

 

I've also added a [...]
