Tumbleweed Derby is the eighth episode of Scrappy & Yabba-Doo, which originally aired as the third part of the eighth episode of The Scooby & Scrappy Doo Puppy Hour. Afterwards, it became the third part of the eighth episode to the third season of Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo (second series).
Yabba, Dusty, and Scrappy have entered their horse, Wildfire, in the Tumbleweed Derby, and he's favored to win, but the owners of Cactus Flower want the trophy for themselves.
Dusty and the dogs are giving their horse Wildfire a bath for the Tumbleweed Derby the next day. Two other contestants Slade and Snooky with their horse Cactus Flower drive by taunting Wildfire, but everyone's betting on Wildfire to win. So Slade plans to have him disappear.
That night while the trio's asleep with Wildfire Slade and Snooky try to take a stubborn Wildfire away. Scrappy wakes the others up and they get into a tug-o-war, which they end up losing. While chasing the horse nappers, they made a sharp turn by a cliff and the deputies drive off. Yabba saves them using the wooden barricades as wings and they find Wildfire on top of a peak. Yabba chops the peak down and they catch Wildfire using a horse blanket.
They find that the race has started, but Scrappy and Wildfire quickly gained on Catus Flower with Snooky. Slade snaps Dry Gulch bridge and Yabba and Dusty fall in, but Yabba gets another idea.
They held up the bridge for Wildfire to cross, but Snooky swings a tree branch into Scrappy knocking him off Wildfire. The others show up in the chopper and quickly get the pup back on the horse. As they approach the finish line, Slade tries to stop Wildfire with barrels. Yabba tries to stop him, but trips on a rock sending four barrels with Slade in one of them towards Wildfire. However, Wildfire rolls along the barrels past Snooky and Cactus Flower and wins the race. Slade and Snooky try to escape with the trophy in their car, but the deputies catch up to them with Wildfire, then Yabba lassos the car stopping it and proceeds to tie up the dirty riders. The trophy is then presented to Wildfire and the horse thieves "win the first place booby prize", a trip to the Tumbleweed Pokey.
