Additional Information

Packer[1] is a security guard for Stanford Chemical Plant.

When Troy and Dillon investigate a lake where the sick Super Scouts drank from, they encounter Packer, who comes across as a fairly jovial individual, with a negative disposition towards environmentalists. Packer informs them that the lake and the land belong to the plant, also giving them permission to fish there, believing them to be part of the Boy Scouts.

Although initially defensive when asked where they can find Mr. John Stockton, the guard gives the information to them, particularly after Troy claims that he wishes to teach the children a lesson in repaying kindness for kindness (1980: "The Super Scouts, Part I").


  1. The name comes from the script for "The Super Scouts, Part I".
