I'm awake, I'm awake.
I know it's been three days
without sleep, but we're almost home.
- Can you hang in there?
- I could fly this baby in my sleep.
[yawns] Which is not a bad idea.
I'm awake!
Good. Ease her down.
[Baloo] Beddy-bye, it won't be long now.
- Shipping report.
- [man] Yes, Mr. Khan.
Your new tanker will be ready to ship
the crude oil by the end of the week.
- Move it up to Wednesday.
- As you wish.
- Next.
- [man #2] Yes, sir.
That shipment of imported spices will be
in your grocery stores by morning.
Are we the only stores offering nutmeg?
- Uh Why, yes, sir.
- Excellent.
Raise the price 25 cents a tin.
But won't the consumers
be upset over the
Yes, but they'll pay anyway.
- Next, the energy report.
- [snoring]
Oh! Ahem
All coal-burning plants
are up 14 per cent.
3.00am! Doesn't Mr Khan ever sleep?
Ever heard of vampires?
is running at half-capacity,
and should be ready for a full test
Sir, you asked us to alert you when
the plane was nearing the danger zone.
Yes, indeed.
Proceed, commander.
Yesterday we lost one of our transport
planes on a secret cargo route:
the Master Run.
- Did it crash?
- No.
It vanished.
One moment the pilot was on the radio.
The next he was gone.
Tonight another plane is making the run.
Only this time we have
one of our gunships cruising the area.
Khan Tower calling gunship.
Come in.
Roger. Captain Hotspur here, over.
Have you picked up the plane?
Affirmative, sir. It flew over
ten minutes ago and we're tracking it.
I'll relay the signal to your office.
As you know, this system is still new
and the plane's location is imprecise.
Now watch.
[Hotspur] Curses. She's disappeared!
They haven't been seen
in this area for weeks.
Could it be magnetic disturbance?
Instrument failure?
Quite frankly, we're completely baffled.
So, gentlemen,
we have a mystery on our hands.
I want to know exactly
what's happening and where.
Why not just send out another plane?
Negative! I know my pilots.
No one will volunteer for a jinx run.
Well, in that case,
we need to find a patsy.
A chump. A flying fool.
What gives?
My eyes are open this time, honest.
- Our lights are shot.
- Well, you're my navigator, Kit. Think!
I've got it!
That's usin' your headlights.
[Kit] Mountain dead ahead!
Turn! That's it.
More altitude!
Port, Baloo!
[Kit] We did it! There's Cape Suzette.
Well, you've got real nerve, Kit.
Now don't let it go to your head,
but I think you're gonna be
a great pilot someday.
As great as you?
[chuckles] It's something to shoot for.
Mrs. Cunningham, you and your crew
have saved our koala bear.
I want you to know how grateful the zoo
is for these eucalyptus leaves.
Well, we're just glad we can help
that poor, starving little animal.
- Isn't that right, Baloo?
- Oh, yeah, yeah.
Makes me feel all squooshy inside.
Lightning! I'm awake.
Good morning, flyboy.
Morning? I don't want to see morning.
You two are heroes.
- We are?
- For saving that koala.
Please, Rebecca,
can't I sleep just ten more hours?
Rise and shine.
And smile!
"Risked his life
for a bushel of leaves"?
The fool.
Then again, he may be
just the sort of fool I need.
See? My plan worked splendidly.
Now everyone in Cape Suzette
knows what a great service we offer.
Let me see that.
- It's a good picture.
- It's a stupid picture.
No, it's a good picture
of you looking stupid.
At least you got your picture
in the paper.
- I never do.
- Never say never, Kit.
They did print your name.
What?! Kit Clownkicker?
Relax, kid, it's only words.
Look out!
I'm out of control.
[wild jabbering]
There you go!
Hey, the Sox won again last night.
Wildcat, what is going on?
You mean the new delivery bike?
Baloo is supposed to make
our downtown deliveries on that?!
I couldn't find a regular bike,
so I put a motor on this one.
- Snazzy, huh?
- Well
What do you say, hotshot?
Me? On that?
Oh, baby!
Pardner, this looks like a job
for the pros from Dover.
Heads up! Delivery bike comin' through.
Free samples from Lee's bakery!
Get your muffins! Shop at Lee's!
Muffin samples!
Muffins and bagels!
Whoa, baby!
Oh! Down.
Oh, my gosh! Step on it, Baloo!
Hang on, little baby!
You did it, Lil' Britches.
You were great!
Say, aren't you that pilot
from the paper?
Well, uh yeah.
Hey, look. First he saves the koala,
and now a baby!
No, no, wait a minute.
You've got the wrong guy.
- Where's Kit?
- I don't know.
He stormed in here, threw his
airfoil in the corner, and left.
I'm worried about him, Baloo.
I think I know where he is.
Keep the bench warm, Becky.
Hey, buddy. You sore at me?
No. But it's not fair.
You mean all this publicity nonsense?
Yeah. They cut me out of photos,
they misspell my name,
I fall off a building
And they give me all the credit, right?
Aw, now, listen to me, Kit.
None of that fame stuff means anything.
You know who you are
and that's all that matters.
Hey, kid.
I think you're the best.
Thanks, papa bear.
Well, I'm glad you're OK now, Kit.
Yeah, Baloo's right. You can't let
this fame stuff go to your head.
I still say it's
a stupid-looking picture.
If that's Wildcat again,
I'm gonna feed him that tricycle.
Good day. I have a message
for Mr. Baloo from Mr. Khan.
[all] Mr. Khan?
"Your presence is requested
at your earliest convenience."
"Please see that your earliest
convenience is at one o'clock."
- What could Khan want, Baloo?
- Sounds fishy, Baloo.
Usually Shere Khan's too high and mighty
to pay attention to the likes of us.
Shall we go? The limo awaits.
[English accent] After you, old boy.
Then again,
maybe this'll be good for business.
Baloo Bear and Kit Cloudkicker
to see Mr. Khan.
Which one of you is Baloo?
Read the papers, man! I am.
Then you can go up. The kid stays.
Hey, we're a team.
Yeah? Well, this doesn't
mention any Cloudpicker.
That's OK, Baloo. I'll wait down here.
You sure, partner?
Of course.
Well, all right. I won't be long.
Oh, baby! Where are the bleachers?
Ah, Baloo. A decided pleasure.
Uh, ditto.
Baloo, I want to add my thanks
to those of the community.
Hey, I can see
the Sea Duck from here!
Yes. I know.
You showed tremendous nerve,
flying under adverse conditions.
Oh, well, actually
For such bravery I hereby
present you with this gold trophy,
proclaiming you
the best pilot in the world.
- Me?
- Come, come.
You more than deserve it.
Gee! Maybe I do.
And because you are the best,
I also have a special job for you.
If you can handle it.
If I can handle it! Of course I can!
Uh, what is it?
The Master Run.
It's an ultra-secret cargo route.
And it's very demanding.
Are you up to it?
Hey, you're talking to
the best pilot in the world, right?
[chuckles] Excellent.
Baloo. Hey, Baloo!
Huh? Oh, Kit.
Hey, cast your peepers on this, guy.
"The best pilot in the world."
You? That's great!
And guess who's gonna fly
a special run for Khan.
Don't you mean, "we"?
I knew the newspaper story
would be a good idea.
But why would Khan want us?
He's got a million pilots of his own.
Hey, he wanted the best.
Why, after this run everyone'll
want me to fly for 'em.
People will come for miles.
"Baloo for hire. No job too big."
No head too big!
It may be your ego, buster,
but it's still my plane.
Oh. Right.
This is valuable artwork, you know.
A painting.
Must be an awful fat frame!
Gotta protect my cargo.
Kit, get the rope.
- It's behind the door.
- I know where the rope is!
Don't forget to buckle up, Kit.
I know, I know! I've done this before.
- So where are we going?
- Sorry, that's top secret.
But I'm your navigator, remember?
Oh. Uh, right.
"Best pilot." [chuckles]
If only he knew
what lay in store for him.
[lively music]
Make sure they top off the tank, son.
I'm gonna need every drop.
Hey, Baloo!
Say, man. Nice trophy.
Oh, this little thing?
Just something I picked up
for being the best pilot in the world.
Ooh! What'd you do to get that?
Not much, really.
There I was, Louie, no sleep for days,
flying in a raging storm,
when a lightning bolt
hits the plane, crash!
All the lights go dead,
I can't see a thing.
But my cargo must get through.
So I muster all my strength,
grab the stick
and pull the wounded Sea Duck left,
right, left, past dangerous mountains.
Until, by the seat of my pants,
I managed to pilot her home,
saving the poor koala
in the nick of time.
And all by himself, too!
Oh, um, well
Kit was there, too, of course.
Of course!
And now I'm on a special run
for Mr. Khan!
A mission only a pilot
of my stature could handle.
Really. What's that?
Well, it's supposed to be
a secret, but
it's the Master Run!
Man, is this a dead party!
Well, better the party than you, Baloo.
Two planes have vanished
on that run this week.
Come in, Louie. This is Wily Paul.
I'm approaching the Twin Spires.
No sign of wreckage yet, over.
Twin Spires? We fly right through there.
The two planes went down
somewhere round there.
Wily's looking for salvage.
Now, you be careful, Wily. Over.
Nothing but clear skies ahead.
- See?
- Aaggh!
I can't see!
There's something wrong
with my instruments.
I'm upside-down. Gotta correct.
No good. Mayday, Mayday!
Wily? Wily!
- What could have happened?
- It must have been pilot error.
No way, man. Wily's the best.
I'm the best!
Don't matter who's the best, Baloo.
There's something out there
gobblin' up airplanes.
Could be a giant sea monster,
could be a hole in the sky.
All I know is, you go out there, baby
you don't come back.
Baloo, maybe you should just
call off the run.
Ixnay, Kit. You're makin' me look bad.
Well, I'm off.
Danger or not, I've got a job to do.
So long!
That's where Wily's plane went down.
The Twin Spires.
Baloo, maybe we should turn back.
I mean, it's just you and me now.
You don't have to impress anyone.
No one'll think you're chicken.
Chicken? Me?
In case you forgot,
I'm the best, kiddo.
Baloo, you're lettin' that trophy
go to your head.
I am not!
You and me used to be a great team
until you started losin' your nerve.
Now why don't you just check the cargo?
Now! I've got flyin' to do.
Louie, this is Baloo, over.
Baloo! Hey, is everything cool, man?
Heh-hey, don't worry about old Baloo.
The master pilot can handle
the Master Run. I've
Baloo! Is everything all right?
I'm fine. I just
Oh, no! I'm upside down!
No, it's all right.
I'll just flip the plane.
Baloo, we're not upside down!
That's better.
Now I'll just pull up a bit.
[Kit] No!
Quiet, Kit! I know what I'm doin'.
Ooh, look at the flyin' fishes!
