Storyline

While the Captain is fishing, the kids plant a treasure map on his hook. The rather dim Captain follows it to the island, where the kids have made it easy for him to find what they've prepared. But what they weren't prepared for was Long John Silver, who's followed the Captain, and kidnaps him and the treasure chest. The kids head for Silver's ship to help the Captain. Fortunately, what's waiting for John in the treasure chest is a wildcat, which keeps him busy (despite breaks for the ice cream man and a low-flying plane) while the kids untie the Captain. His gratitude is short-lived when he discovers they were responsible for the whole adventure. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Katzenjammers in fine form
23 September 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The old MGM "Captain and the Kids" cartoons are hard to come by today but they do pop up from time to time on Cartoon Network's "Late Night Black and White". "Buried Treasure" has a likable, bouncy silliness as Hans and Fritz lead Der Captain on a wild goose chase filled with fun gags and a few head-scratchers. Although this series was not successful in it's day, some individual episodes are a hoot. And for the record - Mel Blanc supplied the voice of Long John Silver.
