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

Only thing noteworthy about this is some stereotypes that would make some people's heads implode!
28 November 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a marginal Willie Whopper short that is largely forgettable, save for about a minute and a half or so at the start that features Boy Scout stereotypes of a mostly (though not exclusively) racial nature. Given that the short is nearly seventy years old, a bit of perspective is necessary here. I wouldn't show this without an explanation to children under 13, but I wouldn't bury it either. Its biggest problem is a boring lifelessness. Okay cartoon, but a historical curio. For Iwerks fans and fans of classic animation.
