Travis and Scoop's Race Day is the ninth episode of the first season.


Scoop and Travis decide to have a race to find out who is fastest. Bob prepares for the racecourse. Spud wants Travis to win, so he tries some sneaky sabotage with obstacles to keep Scoop back. After Scoop wins, Spud complains about Travis's loss, when his sack of obstacles falls over and everyone find out he has cheated.

  • Scoop is faster in speed compared to Travis, even if Spud tried to slow him down.
  • This episode marks the first time Spud gets angry.
  • Spud hiding in the trashcan during the race may be a reference to Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street.
  • In the UK dub Spud calls Travis "stupid" while in the US dub he calls Travis by his name. This is probably due to political correctness.
  • This episode was paired with Travis Paints the Town (Season 1) when it first premiered in the US.
  • This episode would have been more appropriate to include on Scoop's Favorite Adventures (2004) instead of Mr. Ellis' Art Exhibition (Season 7) as Scoop only plays a minor role in that episode.


  • After Scoop wins, Spud's mouth does not move.
