Talespin in Sweden
The cartoon show TaleSpin made its Swedish premiere in August 1992 when the first part of "Plunder and Lightning" (Blixtattacken) was aired by the public-TV's Channel 1. During the following years the show has also aired in the commercial channels TV3 and Channel 5. Some episodes that never aired during the first run, were then broadcast for the first time.
