  • The setting is a camping trip, and Doofus keeps messing things up for the rest of the Jr. Woodchucks with his clumsiness. A crystal rids him of his clumsiness gives him superpowers. He disposes of the crystal as it proves to push his friends away.

    I get mixed messages. I'm not sure what the message of this episode is supposed to be. On the one hand, it teaches that it is not wise to try to impress your friends by showing them up. It also teaches a message of honesty; one shouldn't make achievements using underhanded means. On the other hand, it teaches that it is better to be mediocre; that rather than bettering yourself, maintaining your friends' approval is more important. Doofus was already disliked for his clumsiness, but he became even more disliked with his powers. His friends liked him better when clumsy.
