The skit in Scouting magazine is similar in that similar props are used,
but that's about it. The Scouting magazine skit seems to have a much more
serious theme about parents trying to be good Cub Parents and earning a
badge for it. The skit I was suggesting is not to be taken seriously at
all and has no such serious theme. Instead it is done completely in a
sense of good humor where the parents pretend to be Cub Scouts, including
mischeif, behavior meriting blowing out the conduct candle, etc. The goal
in the latter case was to focus on Cub behavior.
