Episode Summary

EDIT
For a Fuel Dollars More
AIRED:
In another of Rebecca's crazy get rich quick schemes, Baloo and Kit haul kangaroos and milk; she figures they'll have butter by the time they get home. Baloo and Kit stop off at Louie's for some rest and relaxation only to find they've run up a huge tab and Louie won't serve them until it's paid. Feeling run-down and dejected, Baloo and Kit return to Higher for Hire where Rebecca announces her next idea: a mid-air refueling station. It's the last straw for Baloo, but when Rebecca promises to let them keep the tips, Baloo and Kit see it as a way of clearing their debt with Louie.
Rebecca's idea proves to be an overwhelming success for Higher for Hire, but things don't go so well for Louie who loses all his business to the new venture. Not to be outdone, Louie soon sets up a rival service and before long he and Baloo are running competing businesses. Good friends become arch enemies, but a brush with death makes them both realise the friendship they've sacrificed. Baloo and Louie both agree they would rather go back to their old jobs, but before things can get back to normal, they need to put an end to mid-air refueling forever.
Baloo and Louie plot to blow up the platform to get the operation closed down, but just as Baloo gets the timers set, Rebecca arrives with the Safety Inspector. Baloo has to work fast to clear them from the blast area without attracting suspicion, but he manages to land himself in hospital in the process. Needless to say, the explosion closes the gas station for good, but it doesn't stop Rebecca coming up with an idea involving kangaroos, ice cream and milkshakes!moreless
