TaleSpin overview


(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!

even Boom Studios anounces the return of Darwin Duck and Ducktales and that could give us a hope for Talespin, they say "Mickey´s mailbag" is full of requests about going back to Disney Afternoon, and other people like Boom comics are responding in some way, and everybody wishes Disney could revive Disney Afternoon with brand new episodes, but there is one problem: !!I'm a very impatient guy!!, it's taking too long waiting for a definitive answer :mad:

I really cannot remember the last time I watched a Talespin episode, but I know that I was still in primary school at the time; probably back in '94 to '97 (Ages 7-10). This was one of my favorite animated TV series as a kid, and I won't make a fuss about it when I say that I would still love to re-live some of those episodes. They were very entertaining, funny, and also very meaningful. I just wish that I could remember more about the series, but they were great to watch. Always loved it and always will.
