|~ the Camp Bullies boasting to the Peanuts|
The three bullies are first seen when Charlie Brown, wiped out from such a long motorcycle ride to camp, accidentally bumps into one of them. They laugh at him for his name. They then pick on Sally for saying that she's been drafted and "making too much noise" and laugh at her. They then try to intimidate Linus, who fights back by using his blanket like a whip and cracks it at the bullies to make them back off.
On the night before the race, the bullies, having an engine on their raft, steal the air from the rafts of the boys' team (Charlie Brown, Linus, Schroeder, and Franklin) and the girls' team (Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Sally, and Lucy) so they'll win and be #1. During the race, they always switch and add signs just to endanger the other racers' lives and beat them.
One day, when the three teams are camping out, the bullies empty their rafts and cheat them again.
Eventually, before they can get to the finish line, the bullies' air in their raft runs out, and so does their engine. They end up disqualified. The bullies then vow revenge on the Peanuts gang next year, but end up humiliated when Snoopy beats up Brutus for trying to attack Woodstock (who had won the race).
