According to the series bible (guidelines handed out to episode writers), Don Karnage is based off of Kevin Kline's character in "A Fish Called Wanda." Kit Cloudkicker is based off of the Artful Dodger, Johnny Quest, and the kid from the 1965 film "A Thousand Clowns." Furthermore, Rebecca Cunningham was considered a divorcée but it's implied that it doesn't matter whether she's a divorcée or a widow as long as the love/hate dynamic exists between her and Baloo. It's left to the audience to decide. It is also said that Rebecca inherited the cargo business from her father but this is changed entirely for the series pilot. See more »

The 90s opened up with a clever Disney favorite, "TaleSpin," the TV cartoon series that featured characters from "The Jungle Book." Join Baloo and Kit Cloudkicker as they fly the Sea Duck like you've never seen it before: out of Cape Suzette, to Louie's, up mountains, through jungles, on water, in volcanoes, looking for adventure, looking for treasure, looking for fun, all in one action-packed cartoon adventure!!!!!
This was a favorite of mine as well as my family's. This ran on The Disney Afternoon the entire first half of the 90s until the original cartoons moved to the Old Disney Channel in 1995, which I have seen on vacation once in 1996 before getting cable in March 1997.
And good news: today the DVDs are here!!!!! Relive the fun and excitement of "Dun, dun, dun, TaleSpin!!!!!"
