Trivia

Originally, the role of Baloo was supposed to go to Phil Harris, who had voiced the character in The Jungle Book (1967). However, during the first recording session, it was found that Harris, who was by then eighty-five-years-old, had aged to the point where he could no longer do the voice successfully, and the role was performed by veteran voice actor Ed Gilbert instead.

Alternate Versions

In the original two hour pilot "Plunder & Lightning",there was a song where Rebecca sang a lullaby to Molly while Kit listened in. It was most likely edited out due to time restraints when it divided into a four part episode for syndication. See more »

8 August 1999 | by pologuySee all my reviews

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....
