I saw this thread & I couldn't resist adding fuel to the fire:)
How about Timmy Martin (Lassie)? I remember a whole episode with Timmy and a
buddy going camping in BSA uniforms. As usual, Timmy gets in a mess and
Lassie saves the day :)
Modern fictional "scouts?" Nickelodeon has been rife with them over the
Nona Mecklenberg (Pete & Pete) - Kreb Scouts. first, they used an old Girl
Scout uniform from the 60's, then they changed it to a Kreb Scout uniform.
I think Pete (the older one) was also in some other Kreb Scouts group in
Ferguson Darling (Clarissa Explains it All) faked being the youngest Eagle
Scout for a magazine article (yes, he had a uniform & merit badges).
Ren & Stimpy stumbling into earning their badges and entry to their scout
group ( I forget the group though).
Doug Funny in two different episodes of "Doug:" one episode on a camping
trip and another selling chocolate bars.
Beetlejuice and Lydia in a cookie scam in "Beetlejuice."
In feature films:
Shelley Long played a Woodland Girl leader in "Troop Beverly Hills"
Tim Curry played a spy in some spy comedy, wearing a Woodland Girl uniform
and a week's growth while on a contract killing.
