Yay! New PopMatters

Oh awesome awesome, most awesomeness of all. It's Tailspin and it's on DVD and I don't care who knows it but I think that was just one of the doggone trippiest Disney after school cartoon shows to float down the pike. Here's the idea: Let's take The Jungle Book characters and put them in this weird airtaxi situation where they have to battle corporate executive Shere Khan. They don't hardly make 'em like this no more. God, to be a fly on the wall when someone pitched this puppy to Disney.

Anyway, Popmatters has a review of it alongside other children's DVDs of note. Always worth a read.

Thanks to Big A little a for the link.

I can't tell you how gratifying it is to hear that someone else thinks "Tale Spin" is as groovifying as I do. Trippy, indeed -- do you remember the part wherein the cute bear sidekick goes surfing in the clouds? Or how the King Louie character runs a Casablanca-style island bar? And of course we must all give Mad Props to whoever wrote that stuck-in-your-brain-to-dance-forever theme song. Spin it, let's begin it!
