"Jumping the Guns" is the 48th episode of TaleSpin.


When Don Karnage spots Baloo flying onto the Cliff Gun Embankments to deliver sandwiches for Louie's catering business, Karnage's pirates steal the Sea Duck and use it to make it to the cliffs themselves and knock out the sentries who man the cliff guns. Now it's up to Baloo, Louie, and an old codger who hasn't fired the guns in years to man the guns before the pirates make it into Cape Suzette.

Memorable quotesEdit

Dumptruck: Hey, I'm embarrassed.
Mad Dog: And I'm chilly.

Dumptruck: Can ve put our coats on, captain?
Don Karnage: What?! And ruin a perfect cover? I am in disguise; you are in disguise; the Iron Vulture is in disguise! Life is beautiful! Within moments, my love boat will sail right under those Cape Suzette guns. See how convincing you are, ladies? You have brought the attention of a handsome young sailor.
[The sailor in question is communicating with them in Semaphore.]
Mad Dog: Uh, maybe he's trying to tell us something, captain.
Don Karnage: Nonsense! What could he possibly be trying to tell us?
[The Iron Vulture crashes into a rock, causing its ship disguise to fall apart. The cliff gunners open fire.]
Don Karnage: Uh-oh... Retreat!

Dumptruck: Now can ve put our coats on, captain?

"Not only am I a genius, but I am very very smart too."
—Don Karnage on disguising the Iron Vulture as a rain cloud
