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!

Dark Mode for Minions Source!

 

Within the few days that Minions Source has been open to the public, some users have mentioned that the yellow background is "too bright for their eyes." After making an attempt to tone down the color of the background, we decided that it just didn't look good, so we reverted back to the original background and made it clear that we won't be altering the design any further. But to keep the peace and respect the eyesight of others, I've decided to make a secondary design. As you can see from the screenshot bellow, I've gone with a blue theme that I referenced from [...]

Dancing around the color wheel...lol

 

Okay folks, one more little (read: FINAL) update on the situation with the Minions Source color scheme and brightness fun.  lol  We've considered how things looked since it was requested, by a miniscule number of people, that we change the brightness of the yellow because it was apparently so overwhelming...

In discussion with the moderators, and also with some experienced, artistic and creative members, we've made a command decision: the new setting wasn't working.  It was toned down...dark.  Muddy.  (In the exact words of one of those queried [...]
