DVD screencapture - Lord Heath - Laurel & Hardy - Another Nice Mess - http://www.lordheath.com/ Johnny is on a boat reading "Treasure Island", whilst elsewhere Mickey, Mary and Farina are on their boat looking for treasure.  Farina gets into difficulty when he stomps one too many times on the wooden deck and falls through, with his legs dangling into the sea.  Admiral Specks (Jay R. Smith) is with his dog on the docks.  He uses an ingenious idea by attaching the fishing line to the end of the dog's tail so that when he receives a bite it makes the dog bark!
The boys meet up on shore with a friendly captain who shows them a treasure map and then off to sea they all go.  The kids sit around eating beans and discuss what they will buy with the treasure they hope to find.
