Papa Bear helps the Bear Scouts find someone to rescue-himself! To get their official rescue merit badges, Brother Bear, Sister Bear, and Cousin Fred need real-life experience saving other bears from harm. And Papa Bear knows the most about search-and-rescue-or at least that's what he says. But when they get into the wilderness, they find that Papa is much better at getting himself into trouble than getting other bears out of it. Papa charges into bullpens, enrages swarms of bees, and gets himself so stuck in the muck that it takes three Bear Scouts to pull him out. And when he takes a tumble into Great Bear Gorge, the scouts are about to get some real-life rescuing experience. Will the bears be able to help Papa escape?
