A high-maintenance realtor forced to do community service must lead a group of hopeless girl scouts in the regional cookie drive competition.
In 1953, Jimmy Hawkins was cast as an actor in Mister Scoutmaster (1953) for 20th Century Fox starring Clifton Webb. In 1980, Hawkins executive produced an updated version of the story, which became the NBC TV movie Scout's Honor (1980) starring Gary Coleman. "Mister Scoutmaster" director Henry Levin was brought on board to provide the same duties on "Scout's Honor", which celebrated the 50th Anniversary of The Cub Scouts of America. Now in 2012, Hawkins decided to revive the story once more, only this time to help celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Girl Scouts. Hence it became the Hallmark Channel TV movie "Smart Cookies".
