The Adventures of Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Treasure

Synopsis: When a mythical device from ancient times is rebuilt by a group of Confederates who feel the civil war never ended, Mickey Matson and his newfound friend, Sully, must follow a series of clues left by his dead grandfather to keep the evil men away from the three mystical objects that power the device. If he fails, it could mean not only the loss of his family's home, but maybe the demise of our country as we know it.

To most of y'all,

he... He was just old.

But you didn't know him

like I did.

Jack Bettys did great things,

Important things.


He was a great man.

Um, thank you,

Mr. Stumpwater.

And now, if the family will

please join me in the study

For the reading of the will.

Last but not least,

to my grandson,

Mickey Matson.

Mr. Mickey Matson,

I presume.

Stalwert priggish iii.

The lawyer said my grandpa

left something for me.

Oh, that is correct.

This way, please.


Your grandfather must have had

a lot of faith in you, my boy.

This is the one.

Grandpa left you

a stinking rock.


Wait till everyone at school

hears about this.

Dork boy gets a rock.

Crazy old gramps.


Mickey, come back.

I don't get it, gramps.

What did I do to deserve

a stupid rock?

I thought I was your favorite.

This kite is out of control!

Then I don't love you either.


Smooth, ace.

Nice kite work.

Where'd you learn

to drive that thing?


I was trying to miss you.

Anything broken?

Just your kite.

You may not be as bright

as he thought you were.


Let me ask you a question.

Do you think Jack Bettys

Would've kept a rock locked up

in a safety deposit box,

Just so you could throw the

dang thing into lake Michigan?

It's just a stupid rock.

I told you he wasn't ready,


Kids these days just play

them dang video majiggers.

No sense of duty,

And sure as heck

no common sense.

You know this old creeper?

I told your grandpa

I'd get you started,

But I didn't have to plan on

having to fish this out of water

Right after you got the thing.

Were you talking

to my grandpa?


And hopefully he's talking

to the big guy upstairs,

Pull a couple favors for you.

'Cause you gonna need 'em.

Still look like

a worthless rock to you?

What are you looking at?

I don't know.

It's some sort of pattern.

Looks like

a Petoskey stone to me.

They're only found

in this part of the state.

No, but there's more to it.

It looks like...

Hey, what about my kite?


That looks really old.

What are you doing on my roof?

I came to collect...

For the damages to my kite.


You almost killed me.

Well, if you hadn't

been in the way,

My brand-New kite

wouldn't be in a billion pieces.

And I wouldn't be bored

out of my crackin' mind

In this miserable little town,


Umm... crackin'?

BigCity word.



So did you just move here?

Nah, just staying at gram's

for the weekend.

My parents are on a trip.

So where'd you get

the microscope?

My grandpa.

The last thing he gave me

before he died.

I'm sorry.

That's sad.

What's your name?


Mickey Matson.

Sully Braginton.

Nice to meet you, sully.

Sorry about your kite.

No worries.

So what's up with the rock?

Not sure.

Gramps left it for me.

He left you a rock?

That's what I thought,

Until Mr. Stumpwater

pulled it out of the lake.

I saw something.

I-I just need a little water.


Here you go.


I-I can't believe it.

What is it?


It's a map.

You're kidding, right?

No, it's a map.

Crackin' awesome.

You best be hurrying up, now,


Come on, now!

We best be going!

I would not do that

if I was you, yank.

Hey, hey, hey,

that's enough now.

I'll play patty-Cake

with him later.

- You're not very nice.

- I know.

My mama used to call it


Now, back on up.


I just want to thank you all

For your fine

northern hospitality.

Hey, darling, why don't

you give me a call sometime?

Ladies and gentlemen,

listen up and listen good.

South gonna rise again.

Hear me.

The south gonna rise again!

Whoo, yee-Haw!




You're right.

It does look like a map

of north bay.

But do you have any idea

what we're looking for?


I don't.

Maybe he wanted it to be

like a challenge.

You know,

like a riddle or something.

Sounds like something

he would do.

He used to tell me

all the time

That there are things

worth doing,

And those things

were always worth doing right,

No matter what.

That usually means

it won't be easy.

So let's recap.

Your grandpa gets sick,

doesn't tell anyone,

And when he dies,

He leaves you a rock

with a hidden map on it

That apparently

leads to nothing.

We have to be missing something.

You forgot

about the microscope.


So he had everything

planned out

Until he decided to stump you

with the map.

Wait a minute.

Stump. That's it.

Whoa, there, partner.

The north arrow on the map,

I've seen this before.

A hidden symbol.


Maybe my grandpa

wasn't crazy.

There's no way we are going

to make ends meet this month.

I'm actually thinking of

cashing in my coin collection.

Honey, we'll make it.

Priggish has foreclosed

on three other families

This month alone,

And we were out wasting

gas money looking for Mickey.

Maybe it's time for you to go.

Yeah, I'll split.

But what about the symbol?

It's way out in coffer woods.

My parents wouldn't let me go.

Well, grams lives out

on the end of lily lane,

Just in case

you change your mind.

We drove around for over

three hours looking for you.


we know you're upset,

But we were really worried.

You can't just take off

like that.

I'm sorry.

Why didn't he tell us

he was sick?

We don't know.

But I do know

that he loved you so much.

I just wish

I could've said good-Bye.
