Disney’s Coyote Tales was a TV movie that aired on the Disney Channel in 1991 and is also an extended remake of The Coyote’s Lament, an episode of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color from 1961 which was an anthology series originally hosted by Walt himself. Since Walt’s death, The Coyote’s Lament was the last time that the characters Bent-Tail the Coyote and his son Bent-Tail Junior would make an animated appearance for three decades until the episode was remade into Coyote Tales directed by Robert Heath.

The TV movie was made with re-cut and re-dubbed footage of the original Coyote’s Lament but instead of being voiced over by Walt Disney, the coyotes were now voiced by Jim Cummings who has made a name for himself doing the voices of several Disney characters. Like the original, Coyote Tales begins with a pack of coyotes sitting up on a hill performing the song "Yip Yip Yip Yowl" before being interrupted by Mickey’s dog Pluto barking in the distance. Among the coyotes are an elderly Bent-Tail and an adult Junior who has a son of his own now. Both Bent-Tail and Junior teach the pup to be proud of being a coyote by telling him various different stories where they’ve had run-ins with Pluto which are foretold through a marathon of their old cartoons as flashbacks. Unlike the original, the movie also featured other classic Disney cartoons like The Whalers, Beezy Bear and Lambert the Sheepish Lion.

While the original Coyote’s Lament has surfaced, Coyote Tales has never aired on the Disney Channel since the early 1990’s nor has a copy of it surfaced anywhere, leaving minimal information on the TV movie.

I actually used to own a copy of this, it was one of my favorites as a kid, unfortunately it eventually got taped over.

I also used to have it on vhs but I'm not sure if it was taped over or went missing. It's a real shame. I've been looking all over for this but couldn't find it anywhere.

I found a link to an article here mentioning that it supposedly) aired again in August of 1996 http://artic...animal-tales and since I speculate more people had Disney Channel in 1996 than in 1991 (I believe it was once a premium channel) that should at least increase the hopes of someone having recorded it

I don't have Comcast so I can't confirm if it's legitimate.
