The family of the late Louis Prima (who voiced King Louie in The Jungle Book (1967)) sued Disney because Jim Cummings did too good of a job impersonating Prima when he voiced the character in this show. As a result, King Louie was completely absent from The Jungle Book 2 (2003) and was replaced by King Larry in House of Mouse (2001), the twin brother of Louie (also voiced by Cummings). See more »

This is hands down one of the best TV series Disney has ever produced.
"Tale Spin" is a classic. I love it so much that I'm not sure where to begin to sing its praises, so let's begin at the beginning. Michael and Patty Silversher wrote the single most IRRESISTIBLE theme song ever for this show! One listen and you just know you're in for a good time.
Scripts--For being a "kids' show," this series had a wide variety of story lines, and they were not totally geared toward comedy. The stories ranged from hilarious ("Mach One for the Gipper") to extremely touching ("Her Chance to Dream") to Indiana Jones-style adventure ("Search for the Lost City").
Voices--The cast was perfect, especially Sally Struthers as Rebecca. R. J. Williams as Kit Cloudkicker, Tony Jay as Shere Khan and Jim Cummings as Don Karnage.
There are other things I could get into, such as the quality animation, beautiful backgrounds and nice music score, but once you see an episode these things will all speak for themselves. This was, and still is, a fun and entertaining animated series. Disney has yet to top it.
