The Rugrats act out Grandpa Lou's pirate book in the sandbox after he falls asleep during storytime.
Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, and Lil are outside in the Pickles' backyard. For storytime, Grandpa Lou reads the children a pop-up book about pirates. When Grandpa Lou falls asleep, the children act out on an adventure to find treasure, with Tommy being Long John Tommy.
After sailing to the deserted island the map leads to, they dig up the box of treasure from the sand. Moments later, Admiral Angelico of the Spinach Mane shows up and demands the treasure. After a daring sword fight, Angelico makes Long John Tommy walk the plank. Tommy is just about to fall into the water, when Didi comes outside, noticing that Angelica is bullying the babies. When Angelica says they're playing pirates, Didi says Angelica will go inside and "swab the decks" for a while.
Tommy is relieved that Angelica never got the treasure, and show it to his friends.
