Tomato Paste is the twentieth episode of season two and the episode on the series.
The episode starts off with an "Almost-Badge Ceremony"---none of the campers actually earned any badges that summer. He first starts off with Jelly Cabin, but Edward eventually yells "NEXT!", so Slinkman calls him up. Just before Slinkman can say anything, Edward rips his shirt, showing a sash covered in every kind of badge that a Bean Scout can earn---the other campers carry Edward away in congratulations. When Lumpus wonder what the big deal is about Edward earning all the badges, Slinkman explains that with Edward earning all the badges, he gets promoted from Bean Scout to Tomato Scout. Slinkman goes to call Commander Hoo-Ha because all Tomato Scouts have to personally approved by him.
Meanwhile, in the mess hall, Edward's telling some stories of how he earned a couple of his badges. But then Slinkman comes in and tells Edward how he's going to be promoted to Tomato Scout and that Commander Hoo-Ha's coming to see him. Edward gets scared when he realizes what's going on, and after Commander Hoo-Ha arrives, he shows Edward a slideshow of what Tomato Scout-camp is like, and then tells Edward what the penalty is for having fake badges. Commander Hoo-Ha then has Edward do various tasks of how he earned his badges, with Edward failing and Lumpus getting hurt in most of them---but Commander Hoo-Ha is impressed.
Commander Hoo-Ha then says that he plans on coming back to the camp every week for more recruits for Tomato Scouts. After Hoo-Ha leaves, Lumpus gets mad at Edward and starts chewing him out, but Edward finally confesses that all badges he has are fake: he had ordered them from a costume shop because he wanted to impress the other scouts. After that, he and Lumpus then try to come up with a plan to get rid of Commander Hoo-Ha.
The next day, as Commander Hoo-Ha is talking to Slinkman and the other Bean Scouts, Edward and Lumpus jump out, dress in army outfits, and start pummeling Commander Hoo-Ha with tomatoes that they had gotten from the mess hall. Hoo-Ha is seemingly angry when its done, but he's actually even more impressed and then goes on to say what a good camper Edward is. As Hoo-Ha's about to take Edward to Tomato Scout-camp, Slinkman stops them and takes off Edward's Bean Scout-badge, and Lazlo gives Edward a goodbye letter that he and the other scouts made for him. Edward's touched by this, and he even starts crying.
Commander Hoo-Ha sees Edward crying and says that real Tomato Scouts don't cry because their tear ducts are shriveled up from disuse, and leaves him at Camp Kidney, making him stay a Bean Scout. The other scouts are happy that Edward's staying at Camp Kidney, but then Chef McMuesli comes out and yells at them for using up all of his tomatoes---which means that he won't be able to make his "Tomato Surprise" that summer, which the scouts are happy about.
