Product Description

TALESPIN features beloved JUNGLE BOOK star Baloo the bear in his very own series. Happy-go-lucky pilot Baloo and his navigator Kit Cloudkicker are the intrepid flight crew for a cargo company owned by expert businesswoman Rebecca Cunningham. Throughout their travels, Baloo and Kit encounter familiar characters like the tree-swinging nightclub manager King Louie and corporate big shot Shere Khan. There's excitement at every turn as our heroes face off against Don Karnage and his band of evil Air Pirates, with only Baloo's skills and Kit's wits to save them. With three discs packed with laughs and thrills, the sky's the limit with TALESPIN!

Amazon.com

The ever-swinging Baloo from Disney's Jungle Book has taken up flying and is now the proud pilot of his very own bush plane--problem is, Baloo's laid-back, "work only when you want to" attitude is definitely not conducive to running a thriving business. Add in a young orphan bear named Kit Cloudkicker who's befriended Baloo and stolen a valuable treasure from a band of pirates led by the evil Don Karnage and a newly graduated business major Rebecca Cunningham who's recently purchased the deeds to Baloo's plane and cabin, and you've got an animated series that simply explodes with adventure and conflict. This three-disc, animated DVD set includes the 1990 four-part television pilot and 23 additional one and two-part episodes. The plots encompass everything from piracy and circus performing, to childrearing, oil shortages, and the unexpected importance of good spelling, but what always remains constant is Baloo's willingness to stand up and fight for his friends and what is right, even in the face of the toughest enemy. Throughout his adventures, Baloo also encounters many old acquaintances from the jungle including the corporate maverick Shere Kahn and the ever-cool nightclub operator Louie. (Ages 3 to 10) --Tami Horiuchi

Format: DVD
First of all, I'm glad that the pilot episodes are being released regardless of whether they are the 100% correct version. Ducktales and Chip N' Dale's Rescue Rangers (CNDRR) didn't even have any version of their pilot episodes. That fact alone makes Talespin a superior release.

Secondly, I could get nitpicky, but whether they released the edited "movie-ized" version of the pilot episodes or the actual 5-part separate version doesn't matter to me much. I'm just glad this piece of animation gold is finally out.

Thirdly, Talespin is the series that ruled all other series. It gets better and better each time I see it. It has that fun adventure feel that the Gummi Bears had. And unlike CNDRR, Ducktales, or Darkwing Duck it kept it stories edgy and interesting without over resorting to cutsie-wootsie episodes (except the Molly ones). The story revolved around a man-child (bear-cub) called Baloo. So while he was childish in nature the stories took place in the adult world for the most part.

Finally, killer animation, great characters, interesting twists on the roaring 20s/30s, and Baloo "The Greatest Bear Ever" make this truly the crown jewel of Disney television animation.

TaleSpin was THE SHOW I used to watch on weekday mornings before going to elementary school!!! This is taking me waaaay back!! A true classic!! I just love this whole DVD thing!!!! They could never do this with VHS tapes. (Sigh) I love you, Disney!!!! This is one of those great shows I never thought I'd get to see again--like DuckTales, Chip & Dale's Rescue Rangers, and Darkwing Duck (which will be out on the same day as TaleSpin). Awesome!!!!!! YESSSS!!

This is the greatest cartoon ever made. That dosen't sound biased at all right? I loved this cartoon growing up and watching them again is like reliving a simpler time. This show is just a good as when I was a kid which is not true for many of the things I liked then. When I finished this set the only thing I wanted for was another set with the shows that I remembered while watching this series. I love the style of the planes and the backgrounds all inspired by the 20's, and 30's. I didn't realise this but I owe my love of Strawberry soda to this show. I love the characters all adapted from the Jungle Book movie. Even that sort of rminds me of the old Hollywood system where one studio would use the same cast of actors in different movies.

Kids should see this, adults should see this.

As good as the cartoon is the DVD's are bad. There is no remastering, there is no superior audio quality. Not one special feature to be found. As good as these shows were and as much as they were the Disney cartoons a generation grew up with; Disney just dosen't care about quality anymore.

It's been years since I had seen thsi show properly. I was about 8 when it first came on and remember watching this fondly in reruns in the early 90's.

Compared to most of the AHDD-inducing cartoons out there today, it's good to go back and relive classic cartoon memories with this set. I'm so glad that Disney has finally released it on DVD for us.

Sure, you don't get snazzy bonus features and some people complain about the pilot or an episode being censored or uncut, but you know what? Who cares! I could never tell the difference when I watched these episodes. Extras would've been a nice treat, but not necessary to enjoy this great show.

This box set of Volume 1 of Talespin gets 5 stars, simply because it's a show that, if you haven't watched, you should give it a try. Hopefully kids of today will pick up these DVD's and cherish them like we did when we were children back then.

I wanted to say thanks to the team, including the staff and voice cast who helped create this masterpiece back in the good ol' carefree days of 1990 and '91 (for me, at least) FINALLY, my favorite animated series on DVD. One down, two more to go!! This first edition contains "Plunder & Lightning" (I don't have the DVD yet, but another Spinner friend tells me it's the four-part edited version) =( - other ep's appear to be complete, though. At least it's assured that the episodes have not been altered or major edits processed. Any comments please visit my TaleSpin and Baloo website. Just type my name - I will have a tribute to Tony Jay (and my 2003 interview with the voice of Shere Khan) up shortly. Peace - Joe Goria
