TaleSpin! ♪
Yeah. Beautiful. Pilot to navigator,
where the heck are we?
Six miles south west of Cape Suzette.
Smack in the middle
of some great cloud surfing.
You're an ace, Lil' Britches.
Don't know where I'd be without you.
- OK. Hit the mist.
- Yahoo!
Hang on to your eyeballs, hotshot.
Ah-ha! Yahoo!
All right. Cool it, kid.
Don't go getting show-offity.
- Quit showing off.
- [thunder claps]
Hey, mister. Watch this!
Kit? Kit?!
- No. No!
- Guess who?
Doggone it, Kit. Don't you ever pull
a bonehead stunt like that again.
I thought that you'd
And I And you
Oh, Papa Bear. It was just a half gainer
and a flying dismount.
Don't give me that fancy talk.
You were just showing off
for that other show-off.
Come on. I knew what I was doing.
What you was doing wasn't safe.
[Kit] Since when do you care about safe?
Who flew two tons of dynamite
through a hurricane?
That was a job! There's a difference
between that and taking chances.
- [Kit] Oh, Baloo!
- You don't understand.
There's chances and there's chances
and some of them just shouldn't be took.
Are you writing
the Kit Cloudkicker Rule Book?
What are you two arguing about?
Papa Bear's turned into a mother hen.
I was just doing
a little cloud surfing and he says
Cloud surfing in this weather?
Isn't that dangerous?
Yeah. What if you wiped out
and fell down
and bumped your head or something?
Oh! You're all against me.
I knew what I was doing.
Won't anybody believe me?
There you are, Ace.
Just the man I'm looking for.
That was the greatest exhibition
of aerial stuntmanship
it has ever been my privilege to behold.
- It was?
- Oh! You mean you don't know?
You, courageous captain of the clouds,
you were
Oh great!
Yeah. I guess I was.
- Now, hold on. Who are you anyway?
- Dan Dawson,
of Daring Dan's
dazzling circus of the air,
now at the Cape Suzette Aerodrome,
three shows daily and matinées and
[gasps] You must be
the proud parents of Ace here.
Me married to him?
Baloo and Becky aren't my folks.
I'm an orphan.
You don't say? Me too.
- You ever been to an air circus?
- No. I
My sky-skiing wonderboy,
you haven't lived!
On the house.
You're a personal guest
of Daring Dan Dawson.
Here's looking at you, Ace.
Oh, brother!
Wow! Did you see that, Baloo?
Yeah. I saw it.
Baloo, look. Those guys are good.
I'm one big goose bump of excitement.
[announcer] Ladies and gentlemen,
the man you've all been waiting to see,
the undisputed king of the clouds,
the really great, terrific
Daring Dan!
[Kit] Yahoo!
And now Daring Dan dashes
through the slicing Swords of Doom.
Oh, man. What a pilot.
He's gonna crash!
Stay calm, folks,
it's all part of the show.
Let's hear it for Daring Dan's
Dramatic Dive of Death!
- Yahoo! You see that, Baloo?
- Oh, that's nothing.
Hey, remember when we lost both engines
over Spango Pango
and went into the dive?
Oh-ho! Ten thousand feet.
Baby, there was real danger.
Then, pow! [laughs]
Blew the engine to macaroni!
Boy, was Becky ever mad! [laughs]
- Remember?
- Huh?
Oh, yeah. Sure.
- Hey, Dan!
- Hey, Ace!
Oh, no.
[chuckles] How'd you love the show?
You were great.
Oh, takes one to know one.
Ace, how would you like to join my show?
- [Baloo coughs]
- [Kit] Me?
You. I'll make you a star.
The roar of the crowd,
your name in lights
and more money
than you've ever dreamed of.
- You think I'm that good?
- Kit
Hey, I know guys making
three, four, five hundred a week
not half as good as you.
You're one in a million. You fly with me
and nothing will hold you down.
- Kit, time to go.
- Except, of course, the little people.
Kid, don't let the little people
hold you down.
No matter how big they are.
All right, kid. Come on.
- See you soon, Ace.
- Real soon!
[Kit imitates plane]
Man, what a pilot!
And then he asked me to join his show.
Says I'm one in a million.
Dan says I'll make tons of money
and get my name up in lights.
Hey, what do you think
of Ace Cloudkicker?
Well, goodnight Ace.
Man, you should have seen
this one stunt.
Dan goes into a stall,
pretends his plane's on fire, then he
Baloo? He's just excited.
I'm losing him, Becky.
That dippy Dan's a bag of hot wind
blowing Kit right out of my life.
I know, but Kit is talented.
Maybe he's cut out for something better
than hauling cargo.
And if he is,
who are we to hold him down?
Then again, I never knew you
to give up without a fight before.
I'm gonna win that kid back. Yeah.
We'll spend tomorrow at Louie's
for some fishing and swimming and
Oh, man, is he gonna be surprised!
Goodnight, Baloo.
[cock crows]
Rise and shine-ola, kid!
Wait till you hear
what we're doing today. We're gonna
Kit? Hey, kid!
Wildcat, what are you doing? Kit and me
are taking off in two minutes.
You are? Well, Kit said,
"I'm going to the airfield and"
Come on. Gas her up, get her ready.
Me and my partner
got places to go and things to do.
Er Right, Baloo.
He'll be back any second now.
Yes, sir. Any second.
- Whoops-a-daisy!
- Nice stunt.
Hey, that's what the people pay to see.
Captain Kit Cloudkicker.
Ace of the Skies! Wow!
Thought you'd like it.
So Wanna join the show?
Make the big bucks? Hm?
Yeah! I mean I don't know.
Me and Baloo, we're sort of partners.
Um Can I think about it?
Well, think fast, Ace.
We pull out tomorrow morning.
If you wanna come,
be at the airfield at dawn.
Ah, here we are. Ready to show him
the new stunt I taught you?
You bet.
Baloo, how about letting Wildcat
get back to work on the engines?
- If Kit isn't showing up
- He'll show up! He'll show up!
He'll be dropping in any second.
- [approaching engine]
- Man, when he's right, he's right!
- Wow!
- Pretty slick, huh?
You you you
What were you doing?
Dan and I call it
"The Cloudkicker Dive to Doom." Hey
Wait till we try it
in front of a real audience.
Dan says they'll pay big bucks
to see me do
to see me
Gee, I didn't scare you, did I?
Kid, scare doesn't cover half of it.
Baloo, that's mine.
Come on, give it back! Baloo!
[Kit] Look, I wasn't in any danger.
I knew what I was doing.
[Baloo] There's no point in taking
chances that shouldn't be took.
How's 500 a week? How's that
for a point? I'm gonna be rich!
Oh, kid. Wake up.
You'll never see a dime.
That phony is all baloney.
He is not! Dan was right.
You're just one of those
big little people holding me down.
Now, look.
He's filling your head full of guava.
He's a Oh
You just stay away from that guy!
No! You can't tell me what to do!
You're not my dad!
Now, Kit, don't go and take it
like that. I was just I mean
I Kit?
Oh. Goodnight, Lil' Britches.
Help! Police!
Becky, call the cops!
Hang on, Kit. I'm coming for you!
Baloo, he wasn't kidnapped.
He left.
- I think you know where he's gone.
- I do?
Oh, no!
Kit? Kit?
[announcer] And now,
the star of our show, Daring Dan!
And introducing his newest partner,
Kit Cloudkicker.
- [cheering]
- Hear that, Ace? They love you.
I just wish Baloo could see me.
Kit! No! Wait!
Yeah, right. Here we go, Ace.
Can't keep your fans waiting.
Oh, Kit, no!
Don't worry, folks.
It's all part of the show.
Let's hear it
for that high-flying ace of the skies,
Kit Cloudkicker!
- [cheering]
- [band plays]
He ain't my kid and they love him.
Maybe Becky was right.
Maybe the kid is cut out
for something special.
Something better than hauling cargo
with a fat, stupid old bear like me.
So long, kid. I knew you when.
[Dan] What did I tell you, partner?
When Dan says big bucks, he means big.
Oops. Forgot your share.
Is this all I get? You said
Hey, hey, hey! You got your dressing
room to pay for and your new uniform.
It all adds up, Ace.
'Course you could pay it off sooner
if you gave the rubes something
they'd really pay for, like uh
- Oh, I don't know. A new stunt?
- New stunt?
Great idea, Ace! A new stunt.
I call it "The Flaming Tunnel of Fear."
What do you think, Ace?
Is this gonna wow the rubes or not?
[gulps] Surf through all that fire?
- I don't mind taking chances, but
- Well.
Guess I figured you wrong, Ace.
Didn't think you were chicken.
Who are you calling chicken?!
I'm Kit Cloudkicker, remember?
Look, anything goes wrong and I'm toast.
Nothing's gonna go wrong.
Old Dan here will have everything
under control.
You want the big bucks, don't you?
The more danger,
the more the dummies pay.
You gotta take a little chance
now and then.
- OK, Dan. It's just that
- Attaboy!
Knew I could count on you partner.
Wonder what you're up to, Baloo.
Having fun, I bet.
Nothing's shipped in a week.
We can't go on like this.
I'll have to do something.
Looking for a pilot named Baloo.
- Your name Baloo? I got
- OK. I surrender.
Lock me up.
I got nothing to live for anyway.
You're not here
about the parking tickets?
Nope. Gathering information on this guy.
Know him?
Dan Dawson, alias Dan Dubronke,
alias Daring Dan, alias
What you want him for?
Besides shooting off his mouth.
We've heard stories people have been
hurt doing those crazy stunts of his.
No proof yet,
so we're asking anybody who
People hurt? Where is he?
We'll be watching him tomorrow
at New Fedora.
Gotta catch him in the act, see?
Now, if you
- Hey!
- [Rebecca] Baloo, no!
When I get through with that guy,
he'll be able to count all his teeth
on one finger!
[Dan] What do you mean, wait till later?
The show's on now.
The rubes have paid their money, sonny.
But, Dan, there's a storm coming.
Look, there's no point in taking chances
that shouldn't be took.
Do the stunt or you're fired, fly boy.
- How's that for a point?
- What?!
Come on, partner. Can't keep
your fans waiting. Let's hit the clouds.
Hit your own clouds, partner.
You can't fire me. I quit!
[thunder claps]
Whoa, whoa, whoa! Silly me.
Forget what I said. Bad Dan.
Guys, cancel the stunt! Finito!
See? No stunt. My fault. You were right.
I'm real sorry.
You wanna leave? It's OK. Anything.
Just, please, don't be mad at me.
Well, uh
Oh, Ace, you're the greatest.
You're not sore, I'm not sore.
I know how it is.
Listen, uh [coughs]
Since the show's over,
I've got some time on my hands.
How about I give you a ride home?
One last flight, for old time's sake.
- OK.
- That's my boy.
[thunder claps]
Oh, where's my navigator
when he needs me?
Guess I oughta
give the stuff back to you.
Nah, keep it. Call it a souvenir
of your next stunt.
Huh? You said you were taking me home.
Light 'em.
Dan? What are you gonna do?
I'm not gonna do anything, Ace. You are.
Fly or fall.
It's all the same to the crowd.
[announcer] Don't worry, folks.
It's all part of the show.
Presenting Daring Dan's
Flaming Tunnel of Doom!
- [Kit grunts]
- [thunder claps]
Don't worry, Dan.
It's all part of the show.
[Dan yells]
- Oh, Baloo.
- Now, now.
You wanna miss
the best part of the show?
[Dan yells]
[grunts, blows]
Dan Dubronke, alias Et cetera,
et cetera. You're under arrest.
Here's looking at you Ace!
[Kit] Thanks for saving me.
I'm I'm sorry I left.
If you'll have me back, I
Pilot to passenger, you wouldn't know
where I could find me a good navigator?
Navigator to pilot,
Cape Suzette straight ahead.
Pilot to navigator
