In this memorable episode, Big Pete has a summer job working at his father's golf driving range. But he is not too happy with the adventure. It seems that Pete is the lowest form of life on a driving range, he is the Rangeboy. You know, the person that drives around on a gold cart that is equipped to recovers golf balls off the ground- that kind of Rangeboy. He is so ashamed of his job that he dresses in a bear costume so that people will not recognize him.

But the stunt with the bear suit backfires. Now people are coming to the range for the delight of trying to hit the bear. It has even turned Dad's business into a very profitable and crowded place. And the cause belongs to Big Pete in that bear suit.

As the golf year ends, the golfers are wanting to know who was in the suit. Little Pete and Dad have a scheme, on the last day of the season, who knocks the bear down will get to unmask the costume. Everyone, including Endless Mike will know that Big Pete is a Rangeboy. Big Pete wants no part of the unmasking and leaves before the contest begins. This does not set well with the hundreds of people there to see who is behind the mask. Little Pete and Dad are in serious trouble.

Another enjoyable episode that gives the real respective of young teenagers lives. It also teaches the core of family when one of the brothers has to make a decision that will not be popular. An entertaining episode that was well written and well performed.
