I thought I'd start the ball rolling on this cartoon.
While Talespin was not my very favorite, I still enjoyed it. In some ways it's better than The Jungle Book, from which it was spun off. The interactions and wisecracks passed between Baloo and Becky were so funny, and Kit and Molly are absolutely adorable.

I enjoyed the series. While I wouldn't say it's one of my favorites, it was so interesting to see Jungle Book characters if they lived in a humanlike society: Baloo as a take-life-easy pilot, Louis as a swinging juice bar owner, and Khan as a cold-hearted buisnessman.
In a way, it really reminded me of an animated Wings with the straight-laced owner Becky being like Joe, Baloo being like his brother, and both shows having dopey but good mechanics. Though I read the inspiration for Becky and Baloo was Rebecca and Sam from Cheers, which also makes sense since Wings and Cheers was the same fictional universe.
My nephew, whom I watched it with, was laughing hysterically and jumping up and down with excitement as it is chocked full of perilous situations, which entertained me more than some of the episodes lol. The song is very catchy.
