Don Rosa and TaleSpin cameo

Don Rosa and TaleSpin cameo

The famous Disney comic artist Don rosa contributed to TaleSpin...

Some of you probably already know that the famous Disney comic artist Don Rosa, who gave us memorable comics like "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck", also wrote the scripts of two TaleSpin episodes : "I Only Have Ice For You" and "It Came from Beneath the Sea Duck".

These were actually the first two scripts written for TaleSpin; I couldn't find it, but I remember reading an interview, in which Don Rosa explained that he gave up after doing these two scripts, because doing scripts for TV wasn't "his thing", but he still loved working with the staff behind TaleSpin. He also said that while "I Only Have Ice For You" was heavily rewritten, the Disney staff retained pretty much everything from his "It Came from Beneath the Sea Duck" script.

There's also another thing you may not know : there's a TaleSpin cameo in one of his comics! More precisely, "The Island at the Edge of Time". That comic was released in 1991, and...

Isn't it obvious? The plane...the pilot...That was a wonderful way to honor his work on TaleSpin :)

I know it's not Baloo, but he has a shirt and a cap. (yeah I know, most pilots do...?) Still, the plane makes no doubt.

No, the pilot isn't Baloo I don't think. He looks more like an adult Kit Cloudkicker with his hat turned around, whose doing what he loves best, flying!

I think it's only the plane that made the cameo. The pilot looks nothing like Baloo.

Baloo's lost weight and had plastic surgury! Too think it may have gone this way, too be honest I'd have liked to have known.
