Picnic Poopers is the second part of the eleventh episode of The Scooby & Scrappy Doo Puppy Hour.


The guys are at a picnic, and Scrappy signs them up for a 15 event marathon, but Buster and his dog want to win the race too, and will "bend 'em, twist 'em and tie 'em in a knot" if they win.


At a teen picnic, Scrappy enters the gang into a marathon Shaggy and Scooby didn't want to participate in. The first contest is the sack race. A bully, Buster, and his bulldog, Bull are planning their cheating spree. Shaggy and Scooby hide in a sack that is part of the race. All the other contestants fall into booby traps set by the bully pair, leaving only the gang, who is hopped into the race alongside the bullies by Scrappy. The bullies threaten to "bend you, twist you, tie you into knots", and and the running gag is them tying an imaginary dotted line. Shaggy and Scooby try to hop the other way, but with Scrappy still pulling forward, they are only snapped across the finish line first. The bullies tie the imaginary line. Shaggy and Scooby want to quit, but now the bully won't let them until he beats them back.

The next event is the tug of war. Bull uses a pulley to aid Buster, but Scrappy sees it, and messes up the scheme, causing the boy to be pulled into the mud. Shaggy and Buster are now tied 7-7.

The next contest is an obstacle course. Buster threatens "if they win..." Shaggy and Scooby, fearing their fate, now tie the line. They want to lose, but Scrappy says "We didn't come this far to lose". Buster cuts a climbing rope and the gang falls, and Bull puts glue in the tires, catching Scooby's legs, but he is then "driven" like a four wheeled vehicle, and floats in water, passing the bullies.

They all now have to swing across a gorge to win. Scrappy ties the gang with the rope, but the bullies get tangled up with them too. Bull cuts the wrong rope, and he and Buster fall into the gorge. The gang wins the trophy, but Scoobv worries about being tied into knots by the bully. But it's Bull, carrying Buster to the hospital, who now realizes that that is his fate when he gets out.
