TaleSpin! ♪
I have never been so embarrassed
in my entire life.
Oh, sure you have!
Remember the last time we went out?
Tonight you turned a perfectly
charming dinner into a football game.
Yeah. And I think some thanks
are in order, Becky.
That's Rebecca. Reb-ecc-a!
Though the look on Mr. McFibble's face
when you tackled him into the caviar
He always did have egg on his face!
Get it, Baloo! Caviar?
Egg on his face? [guffaws]
Whoa, Beck uh, Rebecca.
You're startin' to have a good time.
Yeah, well, maybe I am. So?
Well, you better be careful.
Or someone might mistake us for friends.
Maybe we are a little, Baloo.
Stranger things have happened, Rebecca.
- Becky.
- Becky.
Just think of it. You and me, friends.
We'd talk more, trust one another,
help each other out,
and stick together through thick and
A movie, Becky.
They're shootin' a movie!
Move it, folks. Comin' through. Medic!
Quiet on the set.
Lights. Camera. Action!
Va-va kaboom! Oh-ho!
It's Kitten Caboodle!
Oh, no!
Another accident!
I'll save you, Miss Caboodle.
My hero!
Baloo! Are you all right?
Speak to me. Say something.
Did you get the license number
of that piano?
Hey, did you see this?
Oh. I guess you already have.
Wow! I didn't even
have to pay for these.
I just found them lying on
a bunch of doorsteps.
Hey, Becky, do you think I could
get these bronzed?
I'm going to get your head bronzed,
Baloo, if you don't get to work.
You're just jealous 'cause you didn't
get your picture in the paper.
- I am not!
- You are, too.
- Am not!
- Are, too!
[phone rings]
Higher for Hire.
Sure! We'll take the deal.
Tantamount Studios wants you to fly an
important stunt in Miss Caboodle's film!
Wha? Wha-hey!
And I'm gonna be with Kitten.
- And maybe I can get a part in a movie?
- And I could see a star?
You better believe it.
In Starrywood anything's possible!
Since when do you guys accept a job
without asking me, your boss, first?
But you're comin' too.
Besides, I'm not askin' my boss.
I'm askin' my friend.
They're paying three big ones!
- When does he start?
- [car horn]
Wow! Talk about service!
- Wow, isn't that
- Oh, yeah.
Yeah, it is! It is!
- Hey, look.
- [screaming]
Oh. And over there!
There's some of my favorite stars.
My favorite star is the North Star.
[Baloo] Oh-ho-ho,
does she shiver my timbers!
I hoped you'd do the stunt,
you big hunk of a bear!
[Rebecca] Hey!
Show me where.
How silly! That's not till tomorrow.
Let me give you a
personal tour of the studio first.
Oh, solid. De-lighted!
[banging and scraping]
Guys, wait for me!
Excuse me, miss. You forgot the tip.
Can you break a ten?
Frankly, my dear, I don't have a dime.
I don't believe One of these days
Why I [mutters]
Baloo! Here I am, guys. Baloo!
And over here is where we build sets
for my faaabulous movie.
Here I am. Baloo!
Oh! You scared me
in that mummy costume.
Are you doing a horror film?
Costume? Mummy?
I'm the cameraman
on the Kitten Caboodle flick. [sobs]
Nobody's safe on that movie.
Every ten minutes something goes blooey!
Really, you show business types
are so dramatic.
I'm sure accidents just happen.
Then again
[Rebecca] Baloo!
Well, Becky! Where you been?
Where haven't I been?
I thought friends were
supposed to stick together.
[photographer] Make-up!
Kiki wanted me to take
some publicity shots.
You know. Kitten!
[photographer] Ready, Mr Baloo!
Never mind that, Baloo.
Something weird is going on around here.
[Kitten] Oh, Baloo!
Just in time for a little luncheon.
You hear that, Becky?
We're gonna chow!
Good. That'll give me time
to tell you about the accidents
I'm sorry. But this is a private lunch.
Hey, how do I look, Miss Cunningham?
Listen, Kit.
I've got to talk to you about
Sorry, but I'm on my way to an audition.
Maybe Wildcat can help.
- Wait? Where is Wildcat?
- Stargazing.
I can't get one star
to stay still long enough.
Baloo's some friend! Something fishy's
going on and he won't even listen.
[terrified cry]
Not another accident!
We'd better move.
That was very dangerous!
Maybe you should think twice about
being a stuntman.
A stuntman? Lady, I'm just the
accountant for the Kitten Caboodle film.
I'd be crazy to be a stuntman
on this movie.
I pity the poor bozo who's flyin'
the big, important final stunt.
He's sure to be a goner.
Oh, no! That's the stunt Baloo's doing.
I've got to warn him.
Ooh, how nice to see you again!
Pleasant dining.
I've got to tell my friend about
an accident that hasn't happened yet
but probably will
if I don't get to him first.
Fine, fine. Are you a movie star?
Movie star?
What does that have to do with it?
We only serve movie stars.
Hold your bananas, buster!
I can find my own way out.
How nice to see you again!
So, darling. About this Rebecca.
Rebecca? Rebecca who?
[laughs] Darling!
Your humor is so humorous!
You know. Rebecca, your girlfriend?
Girlfriend? Oh, no. She's just my boss.
Just your boss? Why, you
Becky! What are you doin'?
Friends are supposed to help each other,
remember? So I'm helping you eat.
You again?
Get rid of her.
I wasn't hungry anyway.
Becky, what gives?
It's my job to embarrass us, not yours.
You said we were friends.
Why did you tell Kitten we weren't?
Now, Becky. We are friends!
Wait a minute.
You're not jealous of her, are you?
Jealous? Of an empty-headed bombshell
with a body that could stop a moose? Ha!
Good. I only said those things
'cause stars are so sensitive, you know.
You're such a bright, capable woman.
True. Kitten might feel
a little inadequate around me.
Right. And if she got upset,
she might fire me from the stunt.
The stunt! Baloo,
you've got to quit immediately.
All kinds of terrible accidents
have been happening.
It's as if someone were
sabotaging the film.
Accidents? Sabotage?
Two of my least favorite words.
- I'd better talk to
- Oh, Balooey!
Kiki's got a big surprise
for her baby bear.
Well, see you around, Becky.
Thanks! Let's do lunch.
Baloo! You're acting like
a complete idiot, even for you.
Well, if he won't do
something about this, I will!
I'm going to get to the bottom of
this accident business.
I feel terrible about these accidents,
but the public loves the intrigue.
It guarantees big box-office success.
Perhaps I'll win my Oscar at last.
He's the one causing the accidents?
Ah, the actress I sent for.
So, sabotaging your own film.
Admit it now and maybe
the police will go easy on you.
No need to audition, young lady,
You've already got the part.
Get her into costume immediately.
You won't get away with this!
Causing accidents is a
- Ahh, actresses are so temperamental.
- [crashing]
You'll never get away with this!
Hey, just stick to the script, OK?
The girl's a natural!
Why, how'd she get a part?
Why do I always have to repeat myself?
I said cut!
[Rebecca] Help! Stop!
Gee! Maybe the director
wasn't the one causing the accidents.
Do you want another take, CV?
Huh? Do you? Huh? Huh?
Hey, over there! It's the
Beck! You're crushin'
the flowers I got for Kiki.
Baloo, look. Whoever that mysterious
figure was, it's causing the accidents.
Oh, right, the accidents.
Come on, pal, we'd better go find
Balooey! Here I am.
For me? Come, Poopsie!
Kiki's going to take her baby bear out
for a final faaabulous meal
before he flies his big,
important stunt.
Baloo, you can't go.
You have to listen to me!
Hey, simmer down!
We can talk later.
Later? You might not have a later!
You'll have to excuse her.
She skipped lunch.
Fine, Baloo. Don't listen to me.
But someone's causing these accidents
and I'm gonna find out who it is.
Even if I have to guard
your stunt plane all night!
I'm doing this for you, Baloo.
Wherever you are.
[Baloo and Kiki laugh]
Excuse me for a moment, sugarloaf.
I'm gonna go freshen up.
Of course. Take your time.
- [tapping]
- What?
Hey, you!
Come back here, you
You Starrywood saboteur!
[startled cries]
[spooky laugh]
Ohh! Ohh!
[female voice] Get off of me! Let go!
It's you!
It's you. You've been the one
causing all the accidents!
Yes. Yes, it was I!
- But why?
- You
You wouldn't understand. [sobs]
It's It's all so terrible.
So's your acting.
All right! So my last two pictures
flopped and my career's on the skids.
I need the publicity
to put me back on top.
It's as simple as that.
Now, if you'll excuse me
You risked all those
people's lives for a movie?
Hey. That's show biz.
I'm not gonna let you risk Baloo's life.
I'm gonna tell him everything!
Go ahead, darling.
But I've got that big, dumb galoot
wrapped around my little finger.
Who do you think he'll believe?
Me or you?
Baloo and I are friends!
He'll believe me!
Places, everybody!
I don't believe you!
See? Told you so.
Ready for the big stunt,
Oh, anything, Kiki.
But I saw her sabotage
the plane myself, Baloo.
Sabotage, schmabotage!
Jealousy, more like it.
Now, simmer down, Becky, and
- It's Rebecca!
- Well, fine.
But I'm doin' this stunt for Kiki.
Got it?
Stunt crew at the ready!
That's my cue.
Break a neck uh, leg, baby bear.
[Rebecca] But Baloo!
Hey! Let go of my leg, lady.
Look, Baloo, as a friend
Don't fly this stunt.
We aren't friends any more,
are we, Rebecca?
What is holding up this stunt?
All right. I won't stand in your way.
- My megaphone!
- Hey, who turned out the lights?
Sorry, Baloo, but I am your friend.
- Everybody, where are you?
- My megaphone! Give it back.
That crazy dame is stealing my stunt.
Action. Action! Special effects!
I'm a friend and I'll prove it,
even if it kills me.
Why do I always have to be so literal?
That's my limelight she's seein'.
Baloo, look what Wildcat found.
It fell off the stunt plane!
Yeah, uh-huh. Without this thingy
there's no way you could do your stunt.
You'd crash!
Good thing you aren't up there now.
Don't worry, Becky.
I'll get you out of this in a jiffy.
Doesn't say that in the script.
Who cares? Keep rolling, keep rolling!
Oh, dear.
- Hang on!
- To what?
- Grab my hand.
- No.
I refuse to budge until we talk.
Talk? Are you kiddin'?
Well, couldn't we talk later?
Say, after we're on the ground?
In one piece?
No. What's the good of me
going to all this trouble
if we don't have a good
heart-to-heart right here and now?
All right, all right. We'll talk.
What do you wanna talk about?
You said we were friends, Baloo,
but then you never treated me like one.
I love it. Keep rolling, keep rolling!
Friends talk. They stick together.
You said so yourself.
Baloo'd better work fast, or they're
gonna get glued to the pavement.
You're right.
I haven't been much of a friend.
Too many stars in my eyes, I guess.
Is it too late to try again, Rebecca?
It's Becky.
Oh, Baloo! Miss Cunningham!
- They did it!
- All right, they made it!
Ha! Cut! Print.
Oscar, here I come!
Oh, no!
No, no, no!
That idiot was supposed to crash!
He's completely ruined my accident!
Did I say "accident"? Petite moi?
Friends for life?
Friends. Even if you are
easily fooled by a pretty face.
[Baloo] And a great set of legs, too!
Hey, just kiddin', boss lady.
Just kiddin'.
I'll never be star-struck again.
Wow, you guys sure cut it close.
I thought it was gonna be spatula time!
Aw, Kit! Me and my friend here,
we had everything under control.
Great! Well, I got to be going, then.
But Kit, we were just leaving for home.
But I got an audition for
the new Bumphrey Hogart film.
Bumphrey Hogart?
Why, he's only the dreamiest star
in the whole world.
- Wait, Kit, wait!
- A star?
Hmm. Now what's gotten into them?
Another tale to spin
