Storyline

A scoutmaster asks the boys in the troop to tell him about their good turns. Willie's attempts at good deeds are shown in flashback. He sees a dog with cans tied to its tail and cuts the tail with his pocket knife to remove the cans. He finds a bully picking on a small child and is rewarded for breaking up the fight by being punched by the bully's target. He lays his jacket over a puddle for an elderly woman crossing the street, but the puddle is so deep that the woman is drenched with mud. She chases the boy and tries to hit him with her umbrella. Finally, he successfully rescues a kidnapped girl and earns a merit badge. Written by Melissa

Willie Lives Up To His Name
8 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was my first look at one of those "Willie Whopper's Fantastic Adventures And Other Tall Tales." I gather this is a kid who likes to tell "whoppers," lies that really exaggerate things he did, or wish he did.

Here, Willie tells the Scoutmaster what good deed he did recently....and it's a whopper. Actually, the kid must really be creative because this a wild cartoon filled with a lot of non-stop zany action. The music also will get your blood racing. It's fast big-band type music with a clarinet that's non-stop.

Willie's tale is good and anything but boring. Some of his good deeds backfire but the third one, saving a kidnapped woman but a big, tough crook is incredible. Willie not only balances himself on a tire that is racing down the street but gets pushed up 50 floors when he hits a water pipe. Then, he winds up high in the air with an amazing balancing act on a flagpole, all the while rescuing the girl and fighting off the big bully. This is very entertaining material, and I hope the rest of his "whopppers" are this much fun to watch.
