Fictional Eagle Scouts

Following a conversation on Twitter about Eagle Scouts, I ended up running across this list of Fictional Eagle Scouts and found it very interesting.

Here are a few Fictional Eagle Scouts:
– Jonathan Archer and Malcolm Reed of Star Trek: Enterprise

– Professor Roy Hinkley of Gilligan’s Island

Gilligan’s Island pilot episode “Two on a Raft”[30] the radio announces “…the final member of the missing group was Professor Roy Hinkley, research scientist and well known Scoutmaster.” He was the youngest Eagle Scout in Cleveland.

– Greg Sanders, played by Eric Szmanda, in the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Episode “Toe Tags”, October 05, 2006 US; Sanders is called a Boy Scout while rappelling down a cliff and he replies: “Eagle Scout! I didn’t earn a chestful of merit badges for nothing”.

– Hank Hill of King of the Hill

Episode “Flush With Power” and “Unfortunate Son” mention that Hank Hill is an Eagle Scout.

– Agent J of Men in Black II (2002)

MiB agent J (Will Smith) is referred to as an “Eagle Scout” by one of the alien antagonists.

– Daryl Bayes in Red Dawn (1984)

Daryl Bates (played by Darren Dalton) is referred to by the enemy as “A member of an elite paramilitary organization: ‘Eagle Scouts.'”

– Fred Flintstone

Claims to be an Eagle Scout, in an episode where he and Barney Rubble accidentally take their family camping at the site of a Boy Scout Jamboree.

– Snoopy, Beagle Scout from Peanuts.

Can you think of any Fictional Eagle Scouts that aren’t on the Wikipedia list?

Although wouldn’t Malcom Reed have earned the Queen’s Scout Award since he was from the British military? I may have this a little mixed up.

@Perry – In real life yes…

Here is the source of the Boy Scout / Eagle Scout reference:
“Enterprise” Rogue Planet (2002)

Capt. Jonathan Archer: [the Enterprise away team is exploring a dark jungle planet] This reminds me of the rain forest in New Zealand. I earned my Wilderness Merit Badge there.
Lt. Malcolm Reed: You were a Boy Scout sir?
Capt. Jonathan Archer: [With pride] I was an Eagle Scout!
Lt. Malcolm Reed: Oh. So was I
Capt. Jonathan Archer: Really? How many merit badges?
Lt. Malcolm Reed: 28. You?
Capt. Jonathan Archer: 26.
Lt. Malcolm Reed: Ah, that’s not bad sir.
