Rancid Rabbit comes to CatDog and says that he is going to tear down the CatDog house in order to build a freeway. With the bulldozers standing at bay, CatDog try to convince Rancid Rabbit that their house is a historical landmark. CatDog recount the prehistoric discovery of fire at the site, the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and a 60Æs be-in, which all occurred at the CatDog house. Unconvinced, Rancid orders the bulldozers to start wrecking -- until Rancid sees a picture of himself in an egg on the window and decides to spare the half-fish, half-bone structure.CatDog are the favorite to win the Forest Fire Boy Of the Year Award, but first they must win their camping badge. The boys, however, fight over whether to build a teepee or a log cabin, then make two separate camping areas with a trench as the dividing line. Being alone in the great outdoors (actually, their front yard) plays tricks on their minds, and then rain and lightning turn the trench into a gaping hole. Winslow saves CatDog from being swallowed by the earth, and Winslow ends up winning the award.
