Release "TaleSpin" Volume 3 on DVD
TaleSpin (1990-1991) was a ground breaking series from Walt Disney Television Animation. Based partially on the extremely popular characters from the 1967 Disney animated film The Jungle Book, and partial based on the 1982 ABC series Tales of the Gold Monkey, the series was an instant success fueling the further success of the syndicated block of Disney animated shows known as The Disney Afternoon, and left a permanent mark on American culture.
In 2009, the popular web site IGN listed TaleSpin number 81 out of their Top 100 Best Animated TV Shows. It was nominated for an Emmy in 1991, as well as been translated into multiple languages and shown in countries all over the World. It has been featured in Disney comics, and still runs in syndication abroad.
After years of being out of print from a few VHS releases, Disney released TaleSpin along with several other Disney Afternoon series on DVD. Without fan-fair the sets depended on word of mouth. TaleSpin received 2 volumes over two years with one final volume to go, before the series was dropped due to 'Lack of Interest'.
We, as a collective body of fans, urge Walt Disney Home Entertainment to finally release the end of this treasured classic onto DVD. Let us enjoy the final 11 episodes, whether through the more preferred method of a standard retail DVD, as were the first two volumes, or simply via the DVD-on-Demand program. We feel the excuses for denying fans access to the end of this show must come to an end.
If Walt Disney Home Entertainment properly markets and advertises this final volume and does not have overly high list prices (two problems that plagued the first two releases) we know it will sell better than the previous volumes. There is a strong fan base for this show and we are ready to demonstrate with our pocket books how beloved it still is, if we are given the opportunity. Thank you.
