Plane Crazy is a live-action musical written by Barnette Ricci and directed by Rudi Goldman. It features Chip, Dale, Launchpad McQuack, Captain Baloo, Fat Cat, Don Karnage, and, in his debut, Coop. A picture of Jessica Rabbit can also be seen.


F.B.I. man Coop summons four of the best adventurous pilots in the United States of America (Captain Baloo, Launchpad McQuack, and Chip and Dale) to retrieve the prototype jet X-22, which has been stolen by Don Karnage and Fat Cat, now partners in crime. The heroes soon head to Cape Suzette for a high-flying adventure, chasing the miniaturized prototype!


Behind the scenes

The Disney Afternoon Live!: Plane Crazy was a Disney Afternoon-themed live stage show that ran at Disneyland as part of the Disney Afternoon Avenue promotion. It was performed daily at the park's Videopolis theater (now known as Fantasyland Theatre) from March 15th to September of 1991, when it was broadcast on television with animated credits by Teddy Hall (believed lost).

The play concludes with a fourth-wall gag, as the audience (having witnessed Don Karnage and Fat Cat's earlier schemings) are the one to reveal to the heroes how to return the X-22 to its real size. The best way to explain this in an in-universe fashion is to assume specific children happened to listen in on Karnage and Fat Cat, though the specifics are unclear.

Oddly, Launchpad McQuack does not appear to be voiced by Terry McGovern in this play (at least in the September 1991 version that was recorded), even though the rest of the recurring characters are played by their usual voices.
