TaleSpin! ♪
On your marks.
Get set.
Hey, Coolhands,
this isn't bumper plane!
Hey! Anybody interested
in some fancy flight work?
[Kit] A Baloo barrelhouse
backwards roll!
You toss a mean spitwad, Baloo!
But when it comes
to flying the real thing,
you might as well
stay in the hangar.
A pilot worth his rudder
works for the best people.
You work for a rookie,
non-pilot female!
Rebecca's the brains
of the operation.
She pilot's the desk,
while I pilot the plane.
You've been piloting the pier all week.
What's the matter?
Sky too scary?
Look, deadhead, we're waiting for
a really important client right now.
- Mr. Robert Service of
- At Your Service Delivery Service?
Good day, gentlemen.
Baloo, has our client arrived yet?
Yours hasn't, but mine has.
See here, Miss Cunningham,
Coolhands has informed me his company
is run by people with experience,
with pilot's licenses, with sideburns.
What do sideburns have to do
with hauling coconuts to Cucamonga?
The customer wants
the best man for the job.
Which includes you out, lady!
That's the third client
we've lost this week.
It's the hogwash Coolhands is spreading
about you that's puttin' them off.
The better business person
will always prevail.
And I'll prove it,
just as soon as I think of how.
[marching band music plays]
So that's what you do
with a washed up cargo outfit.
You start a conga.
I don't see you up in the
wild blue yonder, Coldfeet.
I took a break so I could sign up
for the Great Air Scavenger Hunt.
They ought to retire the title, though.
I won it every year.
Only because I haven't entered!
Oh, couldn't get permission
from the boss lady?
'Fess up, Baloo. How are you able to fly
with all those apron strings in the way?
That's it! No more ribbing
about working for a girl.
Come on, I'm gonna get
that Coolhands right where it hurts.
In the medals!
So you want to be in the
Great Air Scavenger Hunt, huh?
That's the game plan.
We give you clues,
and you figure them out
and find the stuff we've hidden.
First one back with the most items wins.
Piece of cake.
- Pilot?
- Only the best.
- Aircraft?
- No problem.
- Sponsor?
- Say what?
Uh-oh. You need to be sponsored
by one of the local aviation clubs.
Contest starts at 3:00 sharp.
Baloo, you need to find a sponsor.
There's something even tougher
we have to do first.
What could be tougher?
Getting the afternoon off from Rebecca.
Becky I mean Rebecca,
I need to talk to you.
And I need to talk to you.
Baloo, would you mind
taking the afternoon off?
Now, Rebecca, hear me out!
Did you say time off?
I'm working on a really big idea
to drum up more business and
I need to shut the place down for today.
Oh, it's a sacrifice,
but, if it's for
the good of the company
It is. Trust me.
Come on, kiddo, I did it!
Kit, it's just you,
me and the Sea Duck.
Baloo! The Sea Duck
wasn't part of the deal! I need it!
Need it? You can't even fly it!
It's for the good of the business.
All right. OK.
Come on, Kit.
[Baloo] She may know how to figure,
but I know how to fly.
We'll just find us a club sponsor
with a plane that needs piloting.
There's a race to run and I'm the bear
who can win it for your club.
I'm Baloo, master of the Baloo
barrelhouse backwards roll.
Oh, yeah. I heard about you.
You're the wash up
who works for a skirt!
Don't sweat it, Little Britches,
this isn't the only club in town.
Oh, gosh, Baloo.
Just 'cause you work for a girl.
[Coolhands Luke laughing]
Hope you don't mind that I put in
a good word for you with the clubs here.
Yeah? One club says "yes"
and you'll be eating my prop wash.
[chuckling] Aw, Baloo
you have found the one club
that may be dumb enough to sponsor you.
The Daughters of Aviation.
- The Daughters of Aviation?
- Correct-alutely.
You gotta be a girl to join.
You'll be perfect for them.
Time somebody unraveled him some.
I'm gonna enter that contest.
But who's gonna sponsor you?
Come on. I need you
to make sure my seams are straight.
[speaking in a high voice]
Kit, say hello to Tan Margaret.
Hello, Tan Margaret.
I'm so grateful you turned up.
Our top pilot
couldn't find a babysitter.
That's some grip you got there, Tan.
Comes from doing a man's work all day.
I hear that, sister.
Miss Margaret, incoming at 3:00.
[woman] Coolhands is the
biggest meanie I've ever met.
Just ignore him, Tan.
That's exactly how I plan to play it.
Oh, brother! Girls!
Why don't you save yourself
the entry fee
and go buy yourself
some silk stockings?
'Cause you're not gonna win this time,
big mouth, not with me in the contest!
What's the matter, lady?
Hurt your feelings?
Well, go ahead.
Take your best shot,
if it'll make you feel better.
[birds tweeting]
[Coolhands Luke] Wow! What a woman!
I never met a woman like you
in my whole life,
a real spitfire!
Hope to kiss a hippo, you haven't.
You're the one I've been waiting for!
Let me escort you to your craft,
my angel of all things wonderful.
And which of these vehicles
will cart my heart into the sky?
We managed to line up
a special plane to use for the contest.
- Think you can handle it, Tan?
- The Sea Duck!
How did you manage
to wrangle that, Mary, dear?
That's Mary Lamb.
And an old friend did us a favor.
Don't you need to start your engines?
My dearest, I all ready have.
Now, here are the clues.
And say hello to your navigator.
My old friend,
Miss Rebecca Cunningham.
Hi there. What do you say
we show those boys how to win a race?
[engines revving]
[crowd cheers]
[Baloo] After a takeoff like that,
they can start engraving our names
on that trophy.
I hope you're right, Tan.
My cargo company needs publicity.
That's why I'm here.
I'm in this race
to prove something, too.
Exactly. And we'll be in last place
if we don't figure out these clues.
"From this place we get the stuff,
that makes the mornings
seem less rough."
[Baloo] I can't think of anything
that makes the mornings less rough.
Fact is, I can't think till I've had
that morning cup of coffee.
Coffee! That's it!
And the best place to get coffee
is the little island of Crackyertoea.
East of Java.
That must be the first checkpoint!
As soon as we land, we'll split up
and hunt for that contest item.
Remember, think coffee!
Think coffee! How am I
supposed to think at all?
This girdle's cutting off
the blood to my brain.
- Whoa!
- [thudding]
[Coolhands Luke] Let me help you,
glamour gums.
Why, Coolhands,
what are you doing here?
I've been waiting here
so we could have a few minutes alone.
Hey, this is a contest. You'd better get
going if you don't wanna lose this race.
Oh, I won't lose.
I have it all worked out.
We'll tie this race,
and then we'll tie the knot
[voice deepens] Us? How?
[high-pitched voice] I mean,
how are you so sure we'll tie the race?
I have a secret.
Brother, you're not the only one.
I always steal the answers
and get to the clues first.
But this time, I waited for you.
[voice deepens] You cheat?!
You catching a cold, love lungs?
Now, listen up,
'cause I'm only gonna do this once.
Tan Margaret, will you marry me?
I could never marry a cheater!
You got one of them consciences,
don't you?
Oh, I get the picture.
I understand.
You don't have to hit me over the head.
- [birds chirping]
- Well, OK, if you want to.
Tan, look what I found!
A coffee bean plant!
We found the first item.
I didn't have a chainsaw to cut it
down with, so I used my nail file.
Come on, Rebecca,
let's get outta here.
No woman makes an idiot
out of Coolhands Luke!
I'll let them collect
all the clues for me,
then show them
who the best man really is.
[Baloo] So what's the last clue?
"Best be quick when you land,
upon this place of timeless sand."
Quick sand
Quicksand! Tan, that's it!
Way to go, Becky!
I know the one beach
that's covered with the stuff,
the Geraldo Riviera.
The clue said "timeless sand."
We have to get that watch.
[straining] I can't
quite reach it.
I don't think
your extra pair of silk stockings
are gonna make me any taller, Rebecca!
But they will, Tan.
You should be able
to scoop up the watch with them!
- [both] We did it!
- [ticking]
I did it! I did it!
Reject me, will she?
If I can't have her, no one can.
Let's go win us a contest!
What are you looking for?
We got all the clues.
I dropped one of my earrings in there.
We'll find it after we win.
Hit it!
[engine revving]
[Baloo] Well, it looks like
you're gonna get your publicity.
Why, Tan Margaret,
you have an admirer.
Don't encourage him, Rebecca.
So that you'll never forget me.
I wish I could.
I think he has a crush on you.
A crash you mean!
He's booby-trapped my baby.
We're gonna crash!
[both screaming]
[screaming continues]
Oh, my gosh! Magnets!
They've neutralized the controls!
I can't fly the plane!
Rebecca! This is no time
for spring cleaning.
Oh, yes it is!
[Baloo] Rebecca! No!
Tan, I did it! Oops!
Superior business sense
can be dangerous!
OK, how would they handle this
at business school?
They thought.
That was the Baloo barrelhouse
backwards roll.
There's only one person I know
who could fly like that.
Oh, really?
And between you and me,
I'm glad someone else
is as good a pilot as that lazy bum.
Maybe a little competition
is just what that bag of bones
needs to shake him up a bit.
Oh, my gosh! The contest!
We have to hurry!
Well, almost time
to head over to the finish line.
Don't want to be too obvious.
[plane approaching]
Jumping gyroscopes!
But I saw them go down!
No babe's gonna beat me!
Sorry, Handsy.
Ladies first.
[crowd cheers]
We did it!
We won, we won!
Congratulations, you two. Hey!
'Scuse me, your judgeness.
But, don't you wanna
check their cargos first?
Well, I'll be dipped.
You're absolutely right.
You did get the items, didn't you?
Oh, of course. Right here.
Right where?
- It was all right here!
- [Coolhands Luke] What a shame.
Well, guess that means
it's my turn, then.
Right this way, judge.
I'll just move my plane
into the winner's circle.
[Baloo] I don't know how he did it,
but he stole our stuff!
Don't worry, he won't get away with it.
Those girls were no match
for my brilliance.
[Baloo] Didn't your mother ever
tell you cheaters never prosper?
- Oh-oh.
- [grunting]
[tires screeching]
[all gasping]
No! Tan! Stop! Stop!
I knew it! Yoo-hoo!
Mr. Official, over here!
Coolhands packed a surprise for you
in the cargo crate.
Admit it, you're a cheat!
And a thief!
Never! I won this race
fair and square.
Let him go, Tan. We're gonna
win this contest like ladies.
With our brains.
If Coolhands claims
this stuff is all his,
what's he doing
with a woman's nail file?
I didn't know Coolhands wore earrings
or silk stockings?
No! Wait! I can explain.
I have varicose veins,
I like gaudy jewels.
I was so excited
to get my earring back,
that I didn't hear
what you were saying, Coolhands.
You knew! You knew he'd be exposed.
I knew we'd get him
when they pulled out those stockings.
The earring was frosting on the cake.
Well, I'll be.
You're the winners, after all.
Time for the awards ceremony.
Lead the way.
Just give us a moment
to powder our noses.
Rebecca, I just wanna say thanks.
I learned a lot today.
So did I Baloo.
You knew all the time.
Only a fool wouldn't
recognize her best friend, Baloo.
Right on, sister!
Right on.
