.::THE FILM::.

"Oh-We-Ay, Talespin. Oh-We-Oh, Talespin...."

”Talespin” is another in the long line of Disney afternoon shows I grew up watching as a child. It was quite the popular show, it even had action figures, of which I own most of.

The show was a semi-spinoff of Disney's theatrical Jungle Book film as it featured several of that movie's characters, most notably Baloo the bear, Shere Khan the tiger and Louie the orangutan only they were all recast as well...40's era characters. Baloo was now a pilot, Shere Khan now an evil business man, and Louie ran an bar. Rounding out the cast were Baloo's kid sidekick, Kit Cloudkicker, his boss who owns their air service, Rebecca Cunningham and best of all, air pirates led by the villainous(and somewhat over the top) Don Karnage. The show was great at mixing action beats with more comedic elements and it was often big in the ratings for it.

Volume 2 is the 2nd release of this great Disney series and includes some of my favorite episodes. Some of the best ones include "a Jolly Molly Christmas", "Gruel and Unusual Punishment", and "Pizza Pie in the sky". They even had one that was basically the show's version of the classic comic character (and then movie star); The Rocketeer entitled "Bullethead Baloo". “Talespin” was far from an average toon.

No features.



.::AUDIO & VIDEO::.

Like “Ducktales” Volume 3, the sound quality is a bit better than the previous sets, but not by much. Same with the picture.



.::OVERALL::.

”Talespin” was never my favorite show from the Disney Afternoon but I still liked it a lot as a child. I prefer Gargoyles and Ducktales to it but it's about on par with Darkwing Duck in quality and if you like any of those, you're likely to enjoy this toy. Fans of the show and animation fans alike will get a big kick out of it.
