Intrigued by Grandpa’s pirate story, the Rugrats play pirates themselves.
- - Description from Klasky Csupo.
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 shows it to his friends.
- This is the first episode to feature the children imagining something rather than actually doing it.
- The Treasure consists of Spike's droppings, a Duplo brick, yellow and green Playdoh clumps, a broken hair curler, and a comb.
- Angelica briefly mentions Captain Hook from Peter Pan.
- Angelica: Prepare to be bored!
