Trivia

Many of the planes featured in the series have real-life analogies: the Seaduck is similar to a Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar, the CT-37 Pirate Fighter is based on the Gee Bee Model R Super Sportster with a second pair of wings and pontoons instead of landing gear, and Louie's mid-air refueling plane is analogous to the Grumman G-21 "Goose".

Goofs

The dock setup for Higher for Hire changes almost every episode to accommodate the direction from which the Seaduck is heading. See more »

User Reviews

This is hands down one of the best TV series Disney has ever produced.
25 June 2000 | by (Columbia, SC) – See all my reviews

"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.
