Nobody knows but we're willing to go! Hey, ho, where we been? Nobody knows if we'll come back again! Keep in step, Junior Woodchucks, and follow me.
Oops! - Oops! - Oops! - Oops! - Oops! Oops! Hey, fellow Junior Woodchucks, wait up! Oops! Our troop earns more merit badges! That's because we are the baddest! - What are we? - The baddest! What are we gonna do? Earn our geology merit badges! Whoa-oa-oa-oa! Doofus, why don't you go gather some firewood and get dinner started? Will do, Woodchuck leader! That Doofus - he's never gonna win a merit badge, unless they start giving them out for messing up! I may not be very good at hiking and marching and setting up tents, but I sure know how to gather firewood.
Yeow! We're gonna win a tent-raising merit badge for sure this year.
I'm starving! When do we eat? Doofus should be back with the firewood any minute.
Oh, no! - Look out! - Yikes! Whoa-oa-oa-oa-oa! Can I gather firewood, or what? Well, Junior Woodchucks, looks like we sleep under the stars tonight.
Star Police still gaining on us.
We can defeat them with powers of stolen energy crystal.
How much longer before it activates? Too long.
Hide, we must, the energy crystal.
Yeah, this puny planet, good as any is.
If Star Police search us, clean we will be.
Return we will when Star Police gone.
It's gold, isn't it, Launchpad? No, it's listed in the Junior Woodchuck Guidebook, Huey.
But it isn't gold.
It's pyrite.
Fool's gold.
Fool's gold.
Doofus should have been the one to find it! Where is Doofus? Golly, if I don't find something soon, I won't get my geology merit badge, either.
Ouch! Ooh! Ooh! Hot! Ooh.
Gee, this looks like geology to me.
That ought to cool it off.
Wow! A diamond doughnut! No, it's not a diamond.
Or a doughnut, either.
I'm afraid it's not listed in the Junior Woodchuck Guidebook anywhere.
I'm sorry, Doofus.
I can't give you your geology merit badge.
I'll keep looking.
Gee, little buddy, we have to get going if we wanna get back to Camp Woodchuck before dark.
Oh, well.
I'll just keep it for good luck.
It sure has been lucky for him so far.
Everybody got a geology merit badge but him.
- Star Police fooled, we have.
- Yes.
Return to puny planet, we can.
Recover stolen energy crystal, we will.
When crystal activates, powerful we will become.
"We"? "We"? Only the one who holds the crystal, powerful becomes.
Cannot both of us hold crystal at same time? "Both"? "Both"? I will hold the crystal! I will rule the puny planet and rest of this puny galaxy.
Hey, ho, where are we going? Nobody knows but we're willing to go! Hey, ho, where have we been? Nobody knows, but we've come back again! Last one in the showers is a rotten Woodchuck.
Should we wait for Doofus, or do you wanna take a shower and get a good night's sleep first? Here he comes! He keeps up pretty well when he's not carrying all our food.
He's still carrying most of it.
Sorry I'm so slow.
Just one of the many reasons why I'm never gonna win a merit badge.
Ah, come on, little buddy, you got to believe in yourself.
Keep telling yourself you can do it until you believe it.
Is that how you won all your merit badges, Launchpad? Uh-huh.
It's a very scientific principle called "thinking positive.
" Gee, Launchpad, you sure are smart! Are you positive? Just look at it this way.
Tomorrow is another day.
- See you in the morning! - Good night! Thanks for the advice.
The energy crystal, gone it is! Our stolen crystal has been stolen! Soon energy crystal will activate.
Follow, we must, this thief.
Cosmic tracking light straight to him will lead us.
Come on, Doofus, put out the light, will you? I'm studying for tomorrow's merit badge test.
Doofus, go to sleep! All right, all right! Doofus, put out that light! Oh, gee, Mom, this new bed sure is soft.
Huh? Huh? Oh, wow! What a dream! Whoa-oa-oa-oa-oa! Oh, help me! Ooh! Whoa, how'd I do that? My lucky doughnut! It's glowing! Yikes! Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Whoa! I can run faster than lightning! My lucky doughnut must be magic! Ha-ha! I'm super-strong, too! I wonder.
Yahoo! Wait till the guys see this! Hey, guys, guess what.
I have super powers! I can fly! Good, Doofus, then either go to sleep or go to Mars! - No, really - - Doofus, go to sleep! But hm.
Maybe it's better if nobody knows I have super powers just yet.
I could win every merit badge there is if I keep it a secret.
I can't run too fast or show them how strong I really am.
Better not fly right away, either.
Doofus, put out that light! What's the matter, Doofus? Aren't you even going to try for your knot-tying merit badge? Just waiting my turn, fellow Woodchucks.
Hah, big man! Come on, fellow Woodchump, show us your stuff.
I dare you.
Hey, what are you? Huh? Watch it! Hey! Quackaroonie! Wow, I didn't know you could tie knots like that, Doofus.
It's all in the wrists - and thinking positively, of course.
Well, you got your knot-tying merit badge, little buddy.
Wanna go for your knot-untying merit badge? I'm going to sew my merit badges on this Junior Woodchuck merit-badge sash.
There won't be enough room for them all on my shirt! That's thinking positive, little buddy.
Aw! OK, hotshot, let's see you do it! I guess you guys just don't know how to think positive.
I'm really proud of you, little buddy.
So am I, big buddy.
Gee, Doofus is gonna win every merit badge there is.
Yeah, so why aren't we happier for him? 'Cause something weird is going on, and I think it's Doofus.
We better keep an eye on him.
Thinking positive sure works, fellow Woodchucks.
One more, and I become the all-time Woodchuck merit-badge champion! Uh, all right, Junior Woodchucks, let's, uh, break for lunch.
Oh, boy! One of my three favorite meals! See, the crystal in that structure is.
Fire-devastator missile.
All but crystal will be destroyed.
- Oops.
Backwards was.
- "Oops"? "Oops"? Uh-huh? Ya-ha-ha! What merit badge are we going for next, Woodchuck leader? Fire! We did that one already, big buddy.
Forest fire! It's heading straight for Camp Woodchuck! Gee, I could save Camp Woodchuck.
But if Launchpad finds out I have super powers, he might take away all my merit badges.
I know what I need! A disguise! A superhero disguise! Faster than a flying saucer! Stronger than 100 gorillas! Able to jump over mountains on one foot! It's Superdoo! Everybody, line up for a Woodchuck bucket brigade! There's only one problem, Launchpad.
No buckets! Hey! Who-who-who's that? Lucky for you, it's Superdoo! Superdoo? He's lifting the water tower! But not the water! No danger too big, no disaster too small for the one, the only Superdoo! Gosh, a real superhero.
With a pot belly and glasses? - He reminds me of Doofus.
- Say, where is Doofus? Ah, he's probably just off somewhere practicing snide remarks.
Come on, let's find the little merit-badge champion.
Ahh New plan, we need.
Mm New plan, I have! Huey, I know Doofus has been acting strange lately, but a superhero? Well, then where is he? Hello, fellow Woodchucks.
What's been going on? Dinoblast charge set.
Entire alien settlement will be destroyed by wave of crushing liquid.
Energy crystal soon will be ours.
And we will become most powerful criminals in universe.
- How long before dinoblast? - Ten phlarns.
Ten phlarns? Maybe nine.
Boy, the basket-weaving merit badge must be the hardest one there is.
I thought it was a little too easy, actually.
Why, you overstuffed The dam! It must have busted! We got to warn the camp! Looks like another job for Superdoo! Everybody get to higher ground! Hurry! Where's that superhero when you need him? There! And now to make good use of my pottery merit badge know-how! Ha-ha! It's stronger than it ever was, thanks to Superdoo! Aha! Well, so much for Superdoo's secret identity.
Uh, alien settlement is undamaged.
How about you? Yeah But what difference does it make? Woodchucks are supposed to earn their merit badges with practice and hard work.
With super powers, hard work is easy.
That lucky doughnut of yours sure has changed you, Doofus.
No foolin'! Ever since you became super, you've been making fun of everybody! Like you are better than the rest of us or something.
I am! Sure, Doofus.
Anything you say.
Aw, you guys are just jealous, that's it! You're jealous! You liked me better when I was slow and clumsy.
- You're right! - Oh, who needs you guys? A superhero can make all the friends he wants.
You guys want to be my friends? After all, I saved your lives.
Aw, get lost, showoff! Yeah, find somebody else to make fun of.
There's nothing that says you can't be a superhero and a Junior Woodchuck.
I guess you're the new merit-badge champion.
Great! Who was the old merit-badge champion, anyway? I was.
Gee, sorry, big buddy, but you know how it is.
I'm a superhero, and you well, you're just a hero.
But we can still be friends.
Wanna arm-wrestle? - Huh? Uh, no, thanks, Doofus.
- Superdoo.
Ah, Superdoo.
I'd, uh, rather be alone.
Being a superhero isn't so super.
And making fun of others wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be, either.
I wish I'd never found this stupid thing! Ugh! New plan, we need.
Use head, we must.
Well, that's the end of the short, unhappy career of Superdoo.
- Feel anything? - No.
Youch! - Hello, big buddy.
- Oh, uh, hi there, Superdoo.
Well, I've been thinking.
I didn't earn these merit badges, the doughnut did.
I want to give them back.
You know, it takes more than super power to make a decision like that.
I'm proud of you, little buddy.
Hello, fellow Woodchucks.
Doofus! Where's your magic doughnut? Threw it away.
Gee, you mean you gave up being Superdoo? Yeah.
I gave back all my merit badges, too.
Gee, we're really glad to hear it, Doofus.
But what if there's another disaster or something? Aw, how often does that happen? Timber wolves! - Doofus, run! - What's he doing? You did it, Doofus! And you did it without your magic doughnut, fellow Woodchuck.
The children were never seen again, and the lost mine was never found.
But on still nights like this, people swear they've heard the old ghost miner walking these very woods, rattling the pans he used for panning gold.
Doofus! Thought you might like me to pop you some popcorn, fellow Woodchucks.
Well, looks like the old Doofus is back for good.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
Weird thing is, neither would he.
