Disney's Tale Spin was an animated children's television series that aired for two seasons in 1990.
It featured two main characters: Baloo who we know from Disney's Jungle Book and Kit Cloudkicker who went on plenty of adventures that included air pirates, one of whom was Don Karnage.
In 1991, Playmates released a series of figurines and toys including as shown on the left, Disney's Tale Spin Toy Plane called Don Karnarge's Tri-Wing Terror.
Don Karnarge's Tri-Wing Terror included a "realistic" sounding turbo propeller, which I believe you had to manually turn to hear, a gun sight, a retractable pilot's canopy, aerial attack guns, tri-wing design, detachable bombs and high-flying pontoons. New but in an open box, Don Karnarge sold recently in the toy department of my eBay store for close to $200.
The Tri-Wing Terror is just one of a number of Tale Spin toys that are rare and sought after, fetching good prices on eBay.
The Giant Baloo Collector Action Figure shown here on the right sold for more than $70 recently through the eBay store Tootsie's Toys.
And eBay seller reddogedwards found a happy collector for The Molly Cunningham plush toy shown on the left, who was willing to pay more than $1,000 for this prized memory from the 1990s.
Not all of Disney's Tale Spin toys are so valuable. There are plenty of items that are affordable, like pins, comic books and McDonald's toys, but there are also a few really special pieces, like those sold items shown here on this page and the following items that are available on eBay right now:
