LOL yes I know it's been rebooted a few times. I was born in '82. It was a philosophical question. If they're telling you it ended, it did. And when it ends, in another five years they'll make a new one.

TaleSpin has aged well mainly because it was spearheaded by one guy who put a lot of work and love into the worldbuilding, and because it was handled well by generally mature writers who didn't try to shove in pop culture references where they weren't needed. I still think that the episode with the ghost pirate guy is one of the most poignant things I've seen done with American "afternoon" cartoons.

But it still has a relatively big fandom because: furries.
current rotation: Sweden, England, Guts, Tony Stark, Netherlands, Blackwall, Nephrite, Aragorn, McCree
future stuff: Genjyo Sanzo, Wolverine, Saionji Kyoichi, Tatewaki Kuno, Nakago, Auron, Dorian, Hawke (rogue)
past stuff: a lot
