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!

Strange Magic Gets Box Office Curse

 

Earlier this week, George Lucas’ animated fantasy Strange Magic flew into theatres across North America, and ended up with a box office record. However, that record isn’t as glamorous as some people would expect.


"Nobody came to our party?"

The computer animated comedy musical, which was distributed by Disney under the Touchstone Pictures banner, earned a dismal $5.5 million on its opening weekend at the box office. This officially makes Strange Magic the worst ever opening for an animated feature playing in over 3,000 theatres, beating previous record [...]

DreamWorks Shutters PDI Studio

 

In a time of major struggle, DreamWorks Animation has reported that it will immediately shut down one of its main studios, Pacific Data Images. The impact of the closure will be big as approximately 500 staff will be dismissed. Some of PDI’s laid-off staff will be relocated to DreamWorks’ Glendale studio.

The closure of the studio and the layoffs comes in the wake of some of DreamWorks’ recent animated features under-performing at the box office, which includes Rise of the Guardians, Turbo, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, and Penguins of Madagascar, all four of which [...]

Taking the reins of Animation Source!

 

Hey Sourcers! :)

Allow me to unveil some of my plans for this new year!

AS 2015

I have good news! Now that I can dedicate more time to Animation Source, I am thinking of all the possible ways to improve Animation Source and take it further.

My short-term goal is to :

- Put an effort into finishing the Sources sites that were being worked on, but never got "released", (such as "Secret of NIMH Source", "Regular Show Source"...)

- Make the current sites more active. I'll describe more specific plans about this later, but I have already started by [...]

The Oscar Battle Begins

 

With a great year of animation out of the way, the time has come to for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to announce the nominations honoured to the best of 2014 cinema. With plenty of acclaimed animated films in 2014 (well, at least better than what we got in 2013), it was a tough call on which ones would get in, especially when Pixar was absent that year. But now the nominations for Best Animated Feature have been announced and here they are!

With the help of Marvel, Disney's Big Hero 6 succeeded in pleasing a wide range of audiences, whether [...]
