Gizmoduck and Bubba were jump-the-shark moments for the show. They didn't really add anything character-wise except comic relief and suspension of disbelief for some really bizarre storylines (not that the show didn't require any from the get-go. I mean, really: Who keeps a pilot on payroll who crashes every thing he flies?). They basically introduced science fiction to what is supposed to be a classic Indiana Jones adventure serial, and much like the fourth Indy movie, didn't work too well.

bborchar: Tailspin and Darkwing Duck were my favorites, until Batman came out later.


Add Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers and Gargoyles to this list and you basically nailed my adolescent TV viewing

Also...Reboot

SockMonkeyHolocaust: Tailspin's universe always used to throw me for a loop. It had that PG-13 edge that anime had in the late 80s/early 90s.


As a sucker for alternate universes where air travel is the major mode of transportation, Tailspin totally did it for me. Floating gas stations! Louie's bar being moored high in the sky on bamboo poles! Plus re-casting Shere Khan as an opportunistic CEO was pure genius.

Hell, now when I get the chance, I am going to go play Crimson Skies.

Fun fact: Gadget from Chip and Dale was the first time I was aware of Rule 34.


Gadget is responsible for 40% of all furries on the Internet.

/Cheetara is responsible for the other 60%

Plus, Disney's Aladdin series was great as well.

I'd rather live in St. Canard anyway.

bborchar: I was the exact audience for these shows, and watched them religiously everyday after school. It was nice to no longer have to wake up at 6 am on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons. Tailspin and Darkwing Duck were my favorites, until Batman came out later. The stories were darker and more dangerous, which I loved. I think Tailspin and Ducktales stand the test of time the best, though...we just got the Ducktales movie on DVD, and my 4 year old loves it. She now plays with my husband's Scrooge McDuck toy, which was his favorite when he was her age. I'll probably show her Tailspin, too.


The late 80s-mid 90s was a great time for animation and kids programming. Thank jebus we have Venture Bros. today.

Evidently the first season may be streamed for free to Amazon Prime members. I was unaware of this.
