Tenderbigfoot is the second part of the seventh episode of the second season of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.
To earn their camping badge for the Pioneer Scouts, the guys need to spend the night at Camp Kickapoo, where they encounter Big Foot. They do end up earning their knot tying, map reading, canoeing, first aid, and plant identification badges though.
At Camp Kickapoo, Scrappy reads the Pioneer Scoutbook. "A good scout is always cheerful, and never complains about his load". Shaggy and Scooby find this difficult as they are weighed down with camping equipment. To win their camping badges, they have to camp out overnight.
Scooby punctures his life-raft, and it flies off, carrying them into the distance, and are now lost. They look for a place to set up camp. Scrappy hopes to run into Bigfoot. Shaggy responds "there's no such thing as bigfoot--at least I hope not".
Scooby walks off a cliff, and falls, grabbing onto a branch, and sees Bigfoot in a cliff-side cave. The creature slings him back up to the others, before they could learn to tie a double-bow sheep-shank lasso to rescue him. Scooby imitates him to the others by blowing up his foot, but Shaggy doesn't believe him. Scrappy identifies the brush he has landed in as poison ivy, and bandages him up, a bit too much (completely).
Shaggy and Scrappy decide to camp there, and go look for firewood. Bigfoot comes along and eats up all the food, right in front of the helpless Scooby. He breaks out of the bandages and runs to tell the others, who not only still don't believe him, but also think he ate the food.
Bigfoot appears behind Shaggy and places his hand on his shoulder, as Shaggy repeats that "There is NO Bigfoot!". He now sees him and runs, but Scrappy jumps him ("I got this leg, you grab the other!") Scooby yanks him off and runs.
They escape on a canoe, but Bigfoot, hanging from a tree grabs Scooby. The branch breaks, and they fall into the water, and are swept, along with the others, over a waterfall. At the bottom,. they see the scout camp.
Bigfoot, now shrunken, walks away. They didn't win the camping badge, but they did win badges for knot tying, map reading, canoeing, first aid, and plant identification. "And", says Scrappy, "we almost caught Bigfoot!".
