Thoughts on a revamped Talespin.
There is a new poll on the website that asks which Talespin character would be best suited to staring in their own series. In theory let's say that in a perfect world Disney would finally wake up and realize what a gem they have in Talespin. (I can dream can't I?) Instead of continuing the original Talespin they decide to try and resell it from one of the other main character's perspective. I tried to envision what that would be like if Wildcat, Kit or Don Karnage were the stars of a new show in the Talespin universe. This is my imagination and my whimsical thoughts only.
The theme song would intro with a Charlie Chapman musical number and then play into a circus type theme. Wildcat would bumble and bump his way through chaotic sleuth adventures and mysteries that Molly would take him on when he babysat her. Through some odd stroke of luck they would always pull through and solve the problem. Every show would end with Molly saying, "Wildcat you saved the day!" Wildcat's reply, "I did?"
Kit's series would be four years into the future. We could follow him and the Jungle Aces lives through their first jobs and the awkward teenage moments. Can you envision Ernie on his first date or Kit receiving his pilot’s license? Comic relief!
The group would work as extras down on the docks constantly over hearing or bumping into danger. Possible scenarios would include Don Karnage's men, gangsters, Trader Moe, or Shere Khan's pilots. Molly could join up with them part-time or have resources that the Jungle Aces do not have access to. (In the series Molly would have a knack for dead languages and interpret maps and hieroglyphics?) They would save Cape Suzette a few times. The Jungle Aces would mostly be trying to dance around danger from being in the wrong place at the wrong time with an occasional treasure hunt.
There are quite a few fans of the Plundering Wonder out there. I am afraid that my idea for his show does not do him justice and is pretty lame. He is such a comical character that I could see him and his crew doing some slapstick routines. They are constantly failing at their plundering expeditions. You hate to see the hero of the show keep loosing so may be every once in a while Don Karnage could taste sweet victory. He who fights and runs away lives to fight another day!
Now I want to know what you think. I posted a new topic called Talespin Revamped! under the Talespin Series forum. Please post your comments there. What character would you revamp and what would be the context of the series? So take the poll and make some comments in the forum. I am looking forward to your ideas!
