T.O.T.S. Wiki

A Stinky Situation is the second segment of the second episode of T.O.T.S..[1]



Freddy & his best pal have trouble playing with a baby skunk due to its overwhelming smell.


The episode begins with Pip deciding on what to eat for lunch from the cafeteria, and commenting on how good the food smells, when he suddenly smells something stinky. He and his best buddy sniff around the cafeteria, Captain Beakman, and even Mr. Woodbird, who is painting the runway while wearing a paint mask. Freddy smells the stench, and the duo tracks it to the Nursery, where K.C reveals the stink is coming from a baby skunk named Scooter. Scooter wakes up from his nap and he instantly wants some baby to play catch with him, but his stink ends up making some of the babies run away from him, and Pip's best pal when he uses his tail to throw the ball. K.C then tells the pair that she has some good news & some bad news. The good news is that there is only one group of animals who can easily handle Scooter's putrid stench: his Forever Family. The bad news is that because there are so many deliveries that day, Scooter won't be able to be delivered until the end of the day. K.C takes some puppies for their walk, while the pair decide to find a way to play ball with Scooter, because the T.O.T.S instruction manual says that "Here at T.O.T.S, every baby deserves someone to play with lots & lots." The manual also suggests that in order to play with a skunk, they shouldn't despair. They should take him outside for some fresh air. So Scooter,Freddy & Pip head out to the runway. The trio try to play catch, but Scooter (being a baby) can't throw the ball very far, and when Freddy & Pip try to get closer, the duo are repelled by Scooter's stench. Then, they try to mask Scooter's odor by covering him in lots of flowers, but that didn't work either. They finally give him a bath to try and make him smell good. But, of course....it ends up failing. The pair at their wits end because they tried the 3 basic things to get Scooter to stop smelling so bad: fresh air, lots of flowers & even a bath! But nothing works. Freddy says that they'll will never be able to play with Scooter. Scooter then gets sad after hearing that the duo are never going to play with him, so he runs away to the runway, where his stench causes 3 fliers and J.P. to not be able to take off. J.P. then asks the pair if they are responsible for Scooter. The pair want to answer, but then Captain Beakman arrives on the scene and asks Freddy & Pip what's going on. Freddy and Pip explain the whole stinky Scooter situation to Captain Beakman and apologize for making him feel worse. She then understands and tells the pair they have nothing to be sorry about because all they did was the right thing and even repeats the line from the instruction manual. "Here at T.O.T.S, every baby deserves someone to play with lots & lots!" The head honcho makes the call that no one is to take off until everybody shows this baby that they do want to play with him.(This naturally infuriates J.P.) While trying to come up with a way to handle Scooter's stench, Mr. Woodbird (still wearing his paint mask) comes and actually pets Scooter. It turns out that Mr. Woodbird had been wearing his paint mask this entire time & that alone actually protected his nostrils & of course, himself from the fumes of the paint, and naturally, Scooter's awful stench. Pip and Freddy get a pair of paint masks for themselves, and finally manage to play with Scooter's ball. Finally, Scooter is delivered to his family and Pip and Freddy join the skunk kids for one last round of catch.


Skunks only smell bad if they're scared or nervous. Scooter, his folks and his siblings didn't seem nervous or even scared for that matter. So, for Scooter, his siblings and his parents to smell bad constantly; it does not make any sense!
