I am surprised. Over the Hedge is clearly a satire on surburban life.
Taking that into consideration, why should you or anyone be upset by
someone poking fun at Scouting? Scouting has been the object of humor
since it was founded. Maybe what you should be doing is using this cartoon
as an example to help your scouts understand satire and humor.
Being able to laugh at yourself and being able to appreciate humor is an
important survial skill. Without those skills, you end up being mad/bitter
at everyone and everything, because you start to interprete everything as
an attach on you or your beliefs. Lighten up, please, it will make the
world a more enjoyable place to live!
