Droopy and Spike find themselves in a Boy Scout competition, with the first prize being a handshake with the President. As usual, Droopy tries to win in a fair and sportsman-like manner, while Spike pulls every dirty trick in the book. These dirty tricks, however, seem to have a nasty habit of back-firing. Written by

Scout's Honor, This Is Another Very Good Droopy Cartoon
You have to laugh just looking at Spike here in the opening scenes of this Droopy cartoon. In this story, he's apparently a hobo and he's been kicked off a train. He has a little derby on and is smoking a half-cigar. After getting the boot, he winds up next to some Boy Scout and overhears that the winner of a contest between these two finalists will get to meet the President of the United States. Oh, boy - that's for him!
One of the finalists, of course, is Droopy. The other one is, well, it doesn't matter because Spike quickly grabs him, puts on his little uniform (Spike looks like he's wearing what young girls wear today - half an outfit) and is ready to battle Droopy for the big award. (Odd that nobody notices the change in scouts!)
Spike does the usual, trying to sabotage Droopy at every turn. We get funny scenes involving lightning, wild life photography, Spike imitating a "damsel in distress" in one scene and later, an old lady crossing a street and a baby on the top of the "Umpire State Building" as the action switches from rural to urban.
One funny line (there isn't much dialog in Droopy cartoons) after Spike is burned to a crisp: "Hey, Blackie. Any more babes in there?"
