Whoopie doopie
Dabba dabba dah
Wabba dabba do
Wabba dabba dah
Mmm, baby wabba dabba do bah
Baloo, turn it down!
All right, Baloo, that's too much!
Yeah. Ain't it, though?
Glad you like it, Becky.
- No, Baloo, I meant
- Thanks. I'd love to dance.
[Baloo continues scatting]
Yeah, baby
[record scratches]
- [Rebecca grunts]
- [Baloo gasps]
[sobbing] Not my daddy's record.
Baloo, that was your favorite song, too.
I know. I've heard it a million times.
Last copy in the world
of I Got Them Flat Broke Sticky Shoed
No Banana Boogie Woogie Blues.
Tough break.
[Kit] Come on, Baloo.
The world's full of great tunes.
No, Little Britches,
that song was special.
[sighs] I can still hear
that be-bopping beat.
- [up-tempo music plays]
- I hear it, too. Look!
[Baloo] "Absolute last copy on earth."
Oh, man. My toes are tappin' already.
What's wrong?
[Baloo] A hundred bucks?
Nothing. Nada. Flat broke.
[sighs] Who'd be dumb enough
to loan me 100 bucks?
You want me to advance you
a hundred dollars?
What's the money for, Baloo?
Um It's sort of for, uh
- uh, a record.
- What kind of a record?
Well, it's a really classic record.
Oh, that's different.
I love classical music.
[Baloo] Me, too.
Especially when it's got a beat.
I knew it.
It's that stupid banana song.
No sale.
You want money, take a lesson from Kit.
Not two minutes ago he was in here,
asking if he could
earn extra money by working.
Kid, what are you doing?
Working's a fate worse than being broke.
But look what I've made so far.
A whole dollar. Wow.
And I've got 49 more just like it.
- My entire life savings.
- Fifty bucks?
Say, that's half of what I need
to buy my record.
- Kid, this is your lucky day.
- It is?
Yup. Old Baloo's gonna teach you
the easy way to make money.
Now, Baloo, if this is another one
of your screwball schemes
In fact, I'll double your money
if you let me keep anything extra.
'Course, I'll need to borrow
your fifty bucks to get started.
- Baloo, no!
- Kid, trust me.
[Baloo] Welcome to Moola-Boola, kid.
Trading center of the uncivilized world.
Land of thrills, adventure
and easy money.
And with your bucks and my brains,
we're gonna clean up.
- Hey, hey, hey!
- Baloo!
- Whoo-hoo! All right. Where you been?
- Long time, no see.
- You're looking good.
- Good to see you, man.
Bobo, I'd like you to meet
my good friend and financial advisor,
Kit Cloudkicker.
Hiya, how you doing there?
Nice to meet you.
- How are you, pal?
- Uh, hello.
So, Bobo, babes,
lay the news on Baloos.
I mean, give the buzz, cuz.
Like, where's the big-time action?
Well, my man, the big-time action is
[clears throat]right over there.
In fact, that's the
only action. But watch out, man.
That plane belongs to Trader Moe.
If anybody tries to horn in
on his customers,
they're gonna wind up
in deep mango peel. Ha ha!
You know what I mean?
- Thanks for the info.
- Baloo!
Now, kid, you gotta spend money
to make money.
Come on.
Here it is, boys.
The precious cargo
that's taken me three months to gather.
- Now, be careful with it.
- Duh, we'll be careful.
Yeah, very careful.
[yells] I'm surrounded by stupids!
- Yeah. I'm stupid.
- Yeah, me too. I'm good at stupid.
Uh, boss, what's so special about a box?
Yeah, what box is special, boss?
It's what's in the box, you peach pits.
We're taking that box up north.
I'm gonna trade it for ten big ones.
Ten of them. Wow.
Better than nine.
I'm going to lunch. Watch that box!
- The box.
- Yeah, I'm watching it now.
Ten big ones, huh?
Little buddy, you're about to observe
a master at work.
- Whatcha looking at?
- The box.
Yeah, we're watching good box.
Oh, and it looks fun, too.
In fact, it looks so fun,
I'll pay you to let me watch it.
Uh-uh. The boss says he's gonna make
ten big ones off of this box.
Oh, yeah. Uh-huh. Ten.
- OK, you talked me into it.
- Hey!
Here's 20 big ones.
Double what your boss was gonna make.
Will he be proud of you!
- OK.
- Yeah. Okey-dokey. Fine.
Where did you say
your boss was taking this box?
- Duh, up north.
- Uh, what he said.
- You sold what?
- [chuckling]
We've got 20 bucks.
Ain't you proud of us?
Yeah. Twice as much.
You lug nuts! I meant 10,000 bucks!
Do you have any idea
what was in that box?
Cute little guys, aren't they?
[all] Hiya!
Sorry. I meant cute big guys.
Are you crazy?
You spent my life savings
on a box of worms?
Trust me.
We're gonna make big bucks
off those worms.
I've just got to figure out how.
[Kit] Baloo, you call this place
"the road to easy money?"
It's all part of the plan.
Are they part of the plan too?
Mmm. You not Trader Moe.
No, but I've got your worms.
[all chanting]
[worms] Hiya!
Mmm. We have enough fish
for whole winter.
What you want for worms?
Say, a hundred?
A hundred!
Baloo, sorry I ever doubted you!
It wasn't much.
Not much? OK. Two hundred.
[gasps] Two hund!
We'll take whatever
you were gonna give Trader Moe.
You good trader.
Drive hard bargain.
OK. You get
- [panting]
- Sparky the half-pint sled dog?
Trust me, kid,
he's worth big bucks in, uh
Um, where was Trader Moe going?
Maswich Village.
Where else they need dog?
[Moe] They sold my worms
and took my Sparky?
[grumbling] Get them!
I'm gonna get those guys.
Nobody out-trades Trader Moe.
Now we wait for the locals
to rush out and pay us big bucks
for old Sparky here.
- I think.
- Come on, Baloo.
Who'd want to buy a dog
in a cat heaven like this?
[all meowing]
- [growling]
- Sparky's gone bonkers.
- Hang on.
- [both] Whoa!
Bad, Sparky, bad!
- Get back here.
- [cats screeching]
[Sparky barking]
We'd better get out of here
before those cats' owners get back.
- Is this your dog?
- Gee, I don't know what got into him.
He's not usually so spunky.
How could we ever thank you?
We can breathe again!
We're allergic to cats, you know.
Let's hear it for our heroes.
[all cheer] Thank you! Thank you!
I suppose you wouldn't take, oh,
500 dollars in payment?
- Take it, take it!
- Uh
We'll take whatever
you were gonna give Trader Moe.
[Kit] Six dozen umbrellas!
OK, OK, I got it.
We're gonna sell them
in the rain forest, right?
Wrong. In the desert.
[grumbling] Those two beat me again!
This is all your fault.
If you two were any stupider,
you'd fall off the world.
- Yeah. Right off the world.
- Yeah, right over the edge, splat.
- [Sparky growling, barking]
- [all yelling]
- [all continue yelling]
- [Sparky snarling]
Olympic diving competition?
In the middle of the desert?
The first guy to get a perfect ten
marries the chief's daughter
and gets the royal inheritance.
- [thudding]
- [crowd cheers]
A two? I can beat that!
What? Three point five?
What kind of joint is this?
That was a 3.7 easy.
We're finally one step
ahead of those guys.
Now, remember, I'm the chief
and you two are my guards.
We bring umbrellas to trade.
Welcome to Mondo Bobo,
you two intruders.
I mean, traders.
We was gonna fix a feast
in youse guys' honors,
but instead we fixed a plot
in a local cemetery.
Grab them, boys.
- [gasps]
- [both] Trader Moe!
You didn't say the road to easy money
was straight down.
Well, toss 'em over.
- Uh, yeah, toss us over.
- What?
Then we'll get to marry
the chief's daughter and get rich,
and your boss won't.
Uh yeah.
And, boy, will he be sore at you!
- Sore at us? Uh-oh.
- What we should do?
Well, since we're such nice guys,
we'll let you throw your boss
over the cliff.
But just this once, OK?
I said toss him over the [stammers]
What are you Hey!
You banana peels! [screams]
[stammering indistinctly]
[crowd cheers]
Hey! Watch it!
Look out, you
Hey, out of the way!
Quick. Your boss is losing.
Get down there and help him win.
Oh, yeah.
We're coming, boss.
Here we come. We'll help ya.
- Don't help me. Don't!
- [all yelling]
[all groan]
[crowd cheers]
[laughs] You saved me.
Found hubby for daughter,
and best of all, brought umbrellas.
Now divers break fall, not legs.
Oh, it was nothin'.
Bumper chutes worth big bucks.
- Say, a thousand?
- [gasps]
Well, now.
Don't want to be greedy,
but how about we take
what you were gonna give Trader Moe?
Oh, no.
Six clam shells?
Oh, don't tell me.
You're gonna use them
as fish communicators in Bambezi.
- No, no, wait. I've got it.
- You got it wrong, kid.
What did I tell you about easy money?
In Moola-Boola,
six clam shells are worth
[Kit] Ten thousand dollars?
Ha ha! I told you to trust me.
We're rich. Rich! Rich!
And it's mine, mine, mine!
This should just about cover the cost
of your funerals.
We're taking you for a ride.
Travel too? Better and better.
And dropping you into the volcano.
You're gonna be deep fried at dawn.
That's a good one, boss.
[Moe] Sleep well, youse two.
We want you nice and rested
for your swan dive into the volcano.
I'm getting some shut-eye.
You slimes do something right
for a change and guard that money.
- Guard the money.
- Yeah, we watch it, boss.
First I have 50 dollars,
but no, that wasn't good enough.
I can't figure what went wrong.
I know what went wrong.
I trusted you!
I'm sorry, kid. [groans]
If only I hadn't busted
my boogie woogie record.
[I Got Them Flat Broke Sticky Shoed
No Banana Boogie Woogie Blues]
[Baloo scatting]
Oh, baby, I'm getting me an idea.
Whatever it is,
I don't like it already.
Now, who could that be?
Yes. Why, thank you.
I say [scatting]
Well, now, looky here.
It's a telegram for the goons.
Hey, hey! You guys have just won
a free dancing lesson.
- Free?
- Oh, no money.
Yep. As an extra bonus,
it's taught by that toe-tappin',
boogie woogie bear, me!
- Oh, boy.
- Now we boogie, yeah.
- Baloo, what are you trying to?
- Ready? Here we go.
A one, a two A one, two, three, four.
- We dancing.
- I'm the soul man.
What's going on here?
- You dance too, boss.
- Yeah, boogie down with us.
[Moe] Will you put me down, you idiots?
[grunts] No, please don't get up.
You guys just sit this one out.
Baloo, that was great.
Thanks, kid, but we're not
out of the woods yet.
You ratchet heads!
Get them!
Get to the Sea Duck.
Rev her up.
- Hurry, Baloo!
- I'm hurrying.
I'm hurrying!
You need a miracle
to get out of here alive.
Uh, which could be arranged.
Just what do miracles go for
around here, old buddy?
Well [whispers]
What? That's dockside robbery.
Hey. Take it or leave it, man.
I'll take it, I'll take it.
Baloo, come on!
Now let's get out of here.
- We'll blast them out of the sky.
- Yeah. Boom, boom.
I like that.
That is the hardest easy money
I ever made in my life.
I've been afraid to ask.
Did we escape
with anything more than our lives?
A hundred bucks.
Double your money, like I promised.
Hey, that's great.
Thanks, Baloo. The rest is yours.
Don't mention it, kid.
[Kit] How's it going, Papa Bear?
This workin' stuff's
not that bad. [sighs]
Worst thing about it,
it hasn't got a beat.
[I Got Them Flat Broke Sticky Shoed
No Banana Boogie Woogie Blues]
Oh, yeah. [scatting]
Hey! You're playing my song!
That's what I needed
the hundred bucks for!
Oh, Kit, you [laughs]
Oh, no.
Baloo, turn it down!
Oh, Baloo.
