Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and Gopher become a pirate crew called the Pooh pirates and begin to search for buried treasure. First They start to tear up Rabbit's garden in search of buried treasure. Rabbit becomes furious about what they did and decides to teach them a lesson. Rabbit starts by filling a treasure chest with rocks, dumps dirt on it, and marks a letter X on it. Then he draws up a map to help the Pooh Pirates find it. Rabbit sends the map to the pirates and claims that the treasure belongs to his great great uncle Long John Cottontail. After following the map’s directions, Captain Piglet and his crew finally find the treasure.

Fearing that someone might try to steal the treasures once they open it outside, Pooh and his friends decide to open the chest inside Piglet’s house. They try all they can to open the treasure chest, but they can’t open it. Late at night, Rabbit was excited that his plan might succeed. However, when he fell asleep, he began to have a nightmare with Pooh and his friends appeared from the ground as stone monsters, doubting he's a genius and telling Rabbit that wasn't a very nice thing to do. Because, he built up their hopes and got them all excited. But, then get mad with Rabbit for giving them a bunch of rocks. Rabbit apologizes and saying it was just a joke. After the dream, Rabbit becomes scared that Pooh and his friends will become angry with him when they find out what’s in the chest. Rabbit tries to retrieve the chest before it is opened. First Rabbit disguises himself as the ghost of Long John Cottontail and tries to scare Pooh and his friends into giving him the chest, but it fails.

Rabbit is sure that Pooh and his friends won’t talk to him anymore and decides to leave the Hundred Acre Woods. But then the Pooh pirates decide to blast the chest open and bring Rabbit to watch the explosion. The pirates see the rocks and Rabbit apologizes to them, but Pooh and his friends actually like the rocks and find a great use for them. Then the real ghost of Long John Cottontail appears and confronts them. Pooh and his friends are terrified of him and run away. After that, a bewildered Long John Cottontail disappears and the episode ends.
