Rumor: Launchpad to star in TailSpin

It has been rumored that when TaleSpin was created, Launchpad was originally meant to star in the role of Baloo.

Tad Stones commented on the Old Haunt forum:

I forget whether this was in this thread or another, Talespin was never to be Launchpad’s show. It evolved from a show called “B-players” that concerned all the co-stars of Disney features trying to get acting jobs or odd jobs to finance their careers. Sort of a Roger Rabbit conceit. Launchpad wouldn’t really fit in a TaleSpin world. I mean, we changed him a lot to fit him into Darkwing’s.

Thank you Tad for clearing that up!
