    Trivia (7)

    • Prior to Talespin, voice actors Ed Gilbert and R.J. Williams starred as father and son in the NBC cartoon Kissyfur. In another odd coincidence, both actors were cast as bears.

    • Don Karnage's massive airship, the Iron Vulture was originally going to be called the Sky Shark. It also had a much more fishlike appearance in the early concept art.

    • Kit Cloudkicker's first name is leftover from an unproduced Disney TVA series called Metro Mice which starred two mice detective: Colt Chedderson and Kit Colby. Metro Mice eventually evolved into Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers.

    • The series was partially based on a defunct aspect of the DuckTales series; namely, that Launchpad McQuack was originally conceived as the operator of an air cargo service. Though finding his way into Darkwing Duck, McQuack was never slated for the Tale Spin.

    • To perfect his rendition of Baloo's voice, Ed Gilbert studied recordings of Phil Harris and practiced for many hours until he had it just right.
