Parrot treasure
12 July 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

'Talespin' has always been a show dear to my heart. One of those favourites from a young age that holds up really well, and is even more entertaining through adult eyes from appreciating the writing and stories even more.

Have been on a roll reviewing individual episodes for certain shows, animated, non-animated and of as many genres as possible (many as part of certain quests), and decided to do it with 'Talespin' and some others. Something that, as expected and hoped, has proven to be a more than worthwhile project and experience. "Polly Wants a Treasure" is a great episode and nearly a favourite, just lacking the extra something and the parrot is slightly on the annoying side.

The animation is very colourful and atmospheric as always. The music matches what is going on perfectly and it is impossible to forget or resist the theme song, one of the catchiest for anything Disney and ever.

Writing is witty, very funny without being too silly and thought-probing without being complicated. Things don't get too childish and it is all easy to follow. The story is hugely compelling and lively in pace without being rushed, and executes a nice idea imaginatively.

Baloo is a very fun and likeable character as always. Don Karnage is among my favourites of the supporting/recurring characters, his cunning and ruthlessness makes him very memorable. Kit is neither too cute or too bratty, an appealing kid rather than an annoying one and his chemistry with Baloo has heart. Rebecca is charming and suitably shrewd and ambitious without it going overboard that it grates.

Voice acting is terrific, Jim Cummings as Karnage taking the top honours. Charlie Adler is amusing while Ed Gilbert is a spirited Baloo. Sally Struthers and RJ Williams are also on the money.

In conclusion, great. 9/10 Bethany Cox
