Pim, de schrik van de familie
Pim, a practical joker, is always in trouble at home. When his mother sends him out of the house because he is teasing his little sister, Pim meets two of his friends. They decide to make good use of the afternoon: pulling a purse on a string, spraying someone with a hose, ringing the doorbell at the house of old Dries and escaping by jumping onto the bumper of a taxi. Back at home, Pim gets up to his monkey tricks in the dining-room and is sent to bed because he put a drawing-pin on his sister's chair. That evening, Pim's father is visited by his nephew who tells him about the group of scouts to which he belongs. Pim listens to the conversation from his bedroom window, but to hear it better he climbs onto the flat roof. He accidentally knocks over a flower-pot that falls on the table at which his father and cousin are sitting. Father calls him downstairs and gives him a thorough scolding. The nephew suggests that it would be a good idea for Pim to join the scouts, something the boy would like to do. The next day Pim is placed under the guidance of Lex, one of the older scouts. Six months later we see Pim in the dining-room once more, but now he has changed a good deal and become much more ready to help his mother. Lex comes along and tells Pim's parents how the lad has done his best to become a good scout. In bed that night Pim recollects that things didn't go too easily for him, but he comes to the conclusion that it really is a pleasant change not to be getting punished all the time.
