According to the series creators, TaleSpin was a rush project in order to fill a gap in Disney's afternoon schedule as well as keep people from being laid off in the television animation department. The concept for the series came in the summer of 1989 (The Jungle Book (1967) being the film it was based off of because, when inflation was considered, it was the fourth-highest grossing Disney movie of that time) with the series being more or less fully developed by August 19, 1989. Voice acting for completed screenplays began in October 1989. The first episode aired, "I Only Have Ice For You", was shown in May 1990 as a sneak preview on the Disney Channel, with the series beginning regular airing in September 1990. See more »

i found tale spin a fun and entertaining cartoon...i really liked the fact that the characters from the jungle book were placed into a role in this cartoon. a cartoon which had some pretty complex plots, always maintained a simple enough wit, to keep children entertained. it was very humorous...i loved it!!! truly a cartoon classic....
