Bear pilot versus robot pilot
29 June 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. "From Here to Machinery" is still one of my favourite 'Talespin' episodes.

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 with a bucket-load of action and adventure.

Baloo is a very likeable lead that one roots for. Don Karnage is among my favourites of the supporting/recurring characters, his cunning and ruthlessness makes him very memorable. Shere Khan is suitably suave and menacing and 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 while Ed Gilbert is a spirited Baloo. Sally Struthers and RJ Williams are also on the money and Tony Jay couldn't have been a more perfect successor to George Sanders voicing Shere Khan.

Overall, wonderful. 10/10 Bethany Cox
