The Good Scout (film #13 on The Cartoons That Time Forgot: The Ub Iwerks Collection, Vol. 1 DVD (Image Entertainment, 1999)). [Category: Hollywood]

In which our hero, Willie Whopper, Boy Scout, relates all the good deeds he did in a day, most of which have questionable consequences, and which culminate in him rescuing a kidnapping victim who looks like Betty Boop's sister. This has some wonderful Harold-Lloyd-style daredevil skyscraper hi-jinx, as well as some genuinely funny gags involving good deeds gone wrong. One of the better Willie Whoppers.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: ****.
