Movie Reviews

Spin it!
Razz N Jazz | 08/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."

"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"
Still fun!

"As always the concern with shows you loved as a kid: will it be as good when you watch it as an adult? Alas, usually the answer to that question is no.

However, my boyfriend and I took a chance on this DVD and I must say it is one show that retains its excellence all these years later! The animation is clean (not yet outsourced, I think), the plots don't have holes, and the jokes are funny (and clean!). (Don Carnage- portrait of villainy, yes/no?)

I am hoping Duck Tails and Chip n' Dale's Rescue Rangers are as good a buy as Tail Spin is."

"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!!"
