The Smurfs are little blue creatures that live in mushroom houses in a forest inhabited mainly by their own kind. The smurfs average daily routine is attempting to avoid Gargomel, an evil man who wants to kill our little blue friends.
This casts key characters from the Jungle Book into a 1930's pacific setting where Baloo is a bush pilot who finds himself as part of a struggling courier company.Written by

Initially was meant to be a spin off of DuckTales (1987) with Launchpad McQuack in the role that eventually went to Baloo. Disney decided to make it a stand alone series with characters from The Jungle Book (1967) after the success of the theatrical re release of the film in the early 90s. Launchpad McQuack was later featured on Darkwing Duck (1991). See more »
The dock setup for Higher for Hire changes almost every episode to accommodate the direction from which the Seaduck is heading. See more »
If it's got wings I can fly it! Sometimes even if it doesn't.

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 »
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!!!!!"
