[Music playing]


On the clearest of nights

when the winds of the Etherium

were calm and peaceful


the great merchant ships

with their cargoes

of Arcturian sura crystals

felt safe and secure

Little did they suspect

that they were pursued by


And the most feared

of all these pirates

was the notorious

Captain Nathaniel Flint


[All gasping]


Like a Candarian zap-wing

ovetaking its prey--

[Door creaks]


James Pleiades Hawkins

l thought you were asleep

an hour ago.

l thought you were asleep

an hour ago.

Mom, I was just getting

to the best part.


Oh, can those eyes

get any bigger?

Scootch over.


a Candarian zap-wing

ovetaking its prey


and his band of renegades

swooped in out of nowhere


Ha ha ha ha!

And then. gathering up

their spoils

vanished without a trace



Flint's secret trove

was never found

but stories have persisted

that it remains hidden

somewhere at the fathest

reaches of the galaxy

stowed with riches

beyond imagination--

the loot

of a thousand worlds


Treasure Planet

OK. Blow your nose.

How do you think

Captain Flint did it, Mom?

How'd he swoop in out of nowhere

and vanished without a trace?

l have no idea.

Come here, you, you li--

I'm gonna get--oh!



OK, now it's time for this

little spacer to go to sleep.

You think somebody'll

ever find Treasure Planet?


I think it's more...

like a legend.

I know it's real.

You win. It's real.

-Nighty-night, Mom.

-Nighty-night, sweetheart.

l love you.

Love you, too.



There are nights when

the winds of the Etherium

so inviting in their promise

of flight and freedom

made one's spirit soar!



[Alarm rings]


Come on!

Whoo! Ha ha ha!


[Sirens blaring]

Oh, great.


Mrs Hawkins!

I know--

refill on the purp juice.

Coming right up,

Mrs. Dunwiddie.

There we go. That's four

powdered spheroids...

two lunar eclipses,

and it's a big bowl...

of Zorellian jelly worms

for the big boy!



Sorry, Delbert. It's been

a madhouse here all morning.

No problem, Sarah.

Ah! My Alponian chowder

with the extra solara seed.

Mmm! Yum!




What brings you here

curious littleone?

Go away.

Are your parents around?

What's the matter?

Cat got your--yaah!


Oh, they're so adorable

at that age.

Oh, yes...deplorable.

Uh...adorable! Hmm.

Speaking of which,

how's Jim doing?

Much better. I know

he had some rough spots...

earlier this year,

but I really think...

that he's starting

to turn a corner.

Mrs. Hawkins?

Jim! [Drops dishes]

Ooh...wrong turn.

OK. Thanks for the lift, guys.

Not so fast.

We apprehended

your son operating...

a solar vehicle

in a restricted area.

Moving violation 9-0-4...

section fifteen,

paragraph, um...


-Thank you.

-Don't mention it.


-As you are aware, ma'am...

this constitutes a violation

of his probation.

Yes, yes. No, I understand.

Um, but could we just--


Um. ahem. pardon me

Officers, if I might,

uh, interject here.

I am the noted astrophysicist

Dr. Delbert Doppler.

Perhaps you've heard of me.

No? Uh, I have a clipping.

-Are you the boy's father?

-Oh! Good heavens, no!

Eww! He's just an old friend

of the family.

Back off, sir!

Thank you, Delbert.

l will take it from here.

Well, Sarah, if you insist.

Ahem. Don't ever let me

do that again.

Due to repeated violations

of statute 1 5-C...

we have impounded his vehicle.

Any more slip-ups will result...

in a one-way ticket

to Juvenile Hall.

-Kiddie hoosegow.

-The slammo.

Thank you, officers.

lt won't happen again.

We see his type

all the time, ma'am.

-Wrong choices.



-You take care now.

-Let's motor.

[Conversations resume]

Jim, I have had it.

Do you want to go

to Juvenile Hall? ls that it?


Jim, look at me.

It's been hard enough

keeping this place...

afloat by myself

without you going--

Mom, it's no big deal.

There was nobody around.

Those cops just

won't get off my--

Forget it.


Mrs Hawkins! My juice!

Yes, l'll be right there,

Mrs. Dunwiddie.

Jim, I just don't want

to see you...

throw away your entire future.

Yeah, what future?



I really don't

know how you manage it. Sarah

Trying to run a business

while raising a felon like--


fellow like Jim.

Managing it?

I'm at the end of my rope.

Ever since his father left

well. Jim's just

never recovered

And you know how smart he is

He built his first solar surfer

when he was eight!

And yet.

he's failing at school

he is constantly in trouble

and when I talk to him.

he's like a stranger to me

I don't know. Delbet

I've tried everything--

[Engines sputtering]

Hey, Mister?


you're OK in there, right?




He's a-comin'.

Can you hear him?

Those gears and gyros

clickin' and whirrin'...

like the devil himself!

Uh, hit your head there

pretty hard, didn't ya?

He's after me chest...

that fiendish cyborg

and his band of cutthroats.


But they'll have to pry it...

from old Billy Bones' cold,

dead fingers afore I--argh!


Oh, my--

Uh, come on, give me your arm.
