When Sylvia Jean's scout troop sets out to earn their Good-Deed badges, the boisterous girl pig knows just what to do: take care of her old, injured neighbor. Unfortunately, Sylvia Jean's over-the-top energy proves too much for the ailing Mrs. VanHooven, whose doctor has prescribed peace, quiet, and no Sylvia Jean. Not to be deterred, the crafty pig scout heads straight to her handy dandy costume closet, and soon Mrs. VanHooven is visited by an artist, a cowboy, a ballerina, and others. But how will Sylvia Jean earn her badge if she can't take credit for her good deed?
