  • Episode Description
  • Despite Baloo's misgivings, he is forced to go shopping with Rebecca so Kit can babysit Molly for the first time. Kit is determined to prove he is responsible, but quickly discovers Molly can be quite a handful and ends up chasing her across town. Meanwhile, the Air Pirates deploy a submarine in an attempt to enter Cape Suzette undetected. Once Mad Dog and Dumptruck have cut through the city's huge underwater defence net however, they inadvertently allow a giant squid to enter the bay. Kit and Molly finally return home but Rebecca is less than pleased that her daughter was put at risk and throws Kit out. When the giant squid tries to kidnap Molly, Kit gets the chance to redeem himself and manages to rescue her with the help of Baloo and the Sea Duck. After the squid is returned to the ocean and the pirates escape with nothing more than a kitchen sink, Rebecca acknowledges Kit's bravery and apologises to him.moreless

  • Kit tries to prove that he's trustworthy to Ms. Cunningham by babysitting Molly, but that's no easy task. He gets tangled up with air pirates as they try to rob the city. Not only that, the pirates have inadvertently allowed a giant squid into the city.

    • Baloo: But I hate goin' shopping with Ms. Cunningham. It's "Baloo, carry this" and "Ohh, aren't these cute"! It's enough to drive me stark raving -- happy, heh. Just telling Kit here what a lovely day to go shopping. Rebecca: Cut the baloney, Baloo.

    • MadDog: Would you get offa me and get on that bike! Dumptruck: How come I got to pedal? MadDog: Cause I went to school! Dumptruck: Did not. MadDog: Well, I saw a picture of one once. Dumptruck: Ehh... okay.

    Trivia (2)

    • Continuity error: MadDog says he and Dumptruck have never been in Cape Suzette harbor before, but in Plunder and Lightning (Part 2) they were there with Karnage.

    • Although Hacksaw was flying Don Karnage's plane, he mysteriously vanishes and is not with Karnage, Mad Dog, and Dumptruck after the plane sinks, which implies he drowned yet we see him in later episodes.

    Allusions (1)

    • Radio Announcer: Faster then a speeding airship! More powerful then a turbine! Able to leap city blocks in a single bound! It's Danger Woman! This is a reference to the 1940s' Adventures of Superman radio series. The announcer would introduce Superman as "Faster then a speeding bullet! More powerful then a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!"
