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 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 »

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.
