Easy Money! is the 52nd episode of The Raccoons.

Premise[edit | edit source]

When Bentley destroys Bert's new RC car, he turns to an advertising scam to repay the debt, resulting in he and the Pigs getting trapped in the Endless Echo Caverns. Now Bert, Lisa and Cedric must brave the underground tunnels of Evergreen Lake to set them free.

Plot[edit | edit source]

After Bentley breaks Bert's remote control car (and additionally The Raccoondominium's kitchen window), he's in desperate need of money. Instead of taking the working route which Lisa has, as Professor Smedley-Smythe's assistant, he's determined to find a Colonel Jethro Smith treasure map in the Endless Echo Caverns. Snag also runs away before the Evergreen Dog Show.

As Bentley ventures forth for the caverns in search of his treasure, Lisa overcomes her anger toward him and assists Bert and Cedric in a rescue mission. Meanwhile, the Pigs find Bentley after running away from Snag, and are lost together. Finally, Bentley and the Pigs are rescued, but of greatest importance is the fact that Bentley realizes the importance of hard work to get what he wants.
