"Mach One for the Gipper" is the fifty-sixth episode of The Disney Afternoon animated series, TaleSpin. It premiered on February 11, 1991.

Plot

After Baloo and Wildcat inadvertently pick up a package belonging to another pilot, Ace London, Ace blames Baloo for the mix-up and Baloo has to clear his name while also dodging Air Pirates. When Baloo crashes at General Patton's base, Ace tells Patton that he is famous, not Baloo, accusing him to have stolen the engine, causing Baloo to declare that he is not a thief. The two pilots who are with Ace realize their mistake and tell Ace that Baloo is telling the truth, and that the wrong crate was loaded. Patton is enraged at Ace's actions shooting civilians, his mishandling government property, his accusation of Baloo being a thief, and Ace aiding Don Karnage and his Air Pirates, and congratulates Baloo for testing the engine. Ace is then fired from military duty and, breaking the fourth wall, says "You got that right". Ace begins sobbing on his plane before taking off, delivering pickles.
