Madeline and the Girls were getting tired and bored at School because of the Spring fever. Lord Cucuface was getting angry at the Girls and starting giving complicated Questions, in which they all don't know. Outraged and Humiliated, Lord Cucuface tolds Miss Clavel if the Girls don't improve, she'll be reported to the Board of Directors. He also told her that she needs Tutors to help the Girls out, she agrees. Pepito cames into the Classroom from the Tree and tells the Girls that there will be a Treasure Hunt
The Idea for "Madeline and the Treasure Hunt" was suggested by Comedy Writer Rowby Goren. He wanted to do an Episode where Madeline, Pepito and the Girls go on a Madcap Treasure Hunt in a Style of Laurel and Hardy, The Three Stooges and the Keystone Kops. The Crew watched It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World at the Indian Hills Theater for it's re release. They loved the Idea and George Meyer suggested that it should be more like the Movie.
