Reuben the bear's got donuts for everyone in his scout troop, but his friends are all staring at something else: there's a wet spot on Reuben's pants, and it's in a specific area.

But as all the clues begin to point in Reuben's own direction as the culprit, Reuben must come to terms with the truth.
