Super Cub
Trapper Trails Council


Characters: Super Cub (SC) and Cubmaster (CM)


Equipment: Super hero costume, cassette player with "Stars and Stripes" march, a hip pack to hold awards, cue card with "Applause", small, disposable toothbrushes


CM: And now it's time for the greatest Cub Scout of all time to join us. A hero among superheroes, defender of justice, advocate of good dental hygiene, and friend to anything with eight legs or less. That's right - It's Super Cub!!!


[Music starts. Super Cub runs onto the stage (or front of the meeting area) as if he is flying. He stops and starts waving at the crowd, as if he is in a parade. He then poses and flexes his muscles while the Cubmaster holds up the "Applause" card]


SC: Hi There! That's right, it's me - Super Cub! The one and only, and boy are you glad I'm here!


[Applause card]


SC: I'm here for three reasons. As you know, as the chief recruiter for the Super Hero Training Academy, I'm always looking for a few good future super heroes.  Are there any here? Let me see those muscles!


[Super Cub jumps into the crowd of Scouts to test a few muscles, then jumps back onto stage]


SC: I'm also here because my Aunt Thelma needs the oil changed in her Buick, but that's not important right now. The third reason I'm here is because my uncle, Captain Super-


[Super Cub stops in mid-sentence and does several push-ups]


SC: You all know him don't you?  He called me on the Super Phone, collect, and told me that right here in Pack ___ there are some future super heroes who have earned some super awards.


[Super Cub reaches into the hip pack and takes out each award and one toothbrush in turn, calling the Scout's name.  When the Scout gets to the stage, Super Cub challenges him to a test, like doing two sit-ups each, etc. With each test, Super Cub loses, but remains undaunted. When all the awards have been handed out, Super Cub says]


SC: It's obvious that I have worn you all out!  And since I'm due back at the Super Hero Training Academy it's time for me to be on my way to fight crime, recruit new super heroes, and help Cub Scouts everywhere fight tooth decay!


[Super Cub runs around the room and jumps through the doorway, as if taking off!]
