Piloting memory
13 August 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. "The Old Man and the Sea Duck" is one of my favourite episodes of 'Talespin'.

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.

Baloo is very likeable as a character that one roots for. The supporting characters add a lot, especially the mysterious stranger.

Can't fault the voice acting, with excellent work from Ed Gilbert and Hal Smith.

Overall, wonderful. 10/10 Bethany Cox
