The No Treasure Treasure Hunt is episode six of the Mysteries of Alfred Hedgehog.


Premise[]

Cynthia and Louise are competing against Alfred and Winston in the upcoming Treasure Race. But after Cynthia and Louise arrive at the end of the race they find no treasure; it's up to Alfred to figure out where it went.

Summary[]

While waiting to begin, Cynthia has Louise take various pictures of her, voicing her confidence that she will win the treasure hunt when Mr. Thomas begins to talk. He explains that Camille and Milo have hid the clues for both teams to find and the race begins, with Camille and Milo worried over how slow Alfred and Winston take off in comparison to the hurried Cynthia and Louise.

Eventually, Cynthia approaches a sign pointing in the direction to the treasure. She decides to flip the sign in hopes of throwing Alfred off track and they reach a voice recorded message someone left on the bridge. After she hears the message, Cynthia decides to throw the message over the bridge to make sure Alfred can't find it and they continue on their way, with Louise taking pictures at every location.

As Alfred and Winston arrive at the location the sign pointed them in they realize the clue isn't there. They're not sure what to do other than to turn around, but when they do they come to the conclusion they are now lost.

Cynthia locates the third clue by now and reads it over before tearing the paper to shreds, then crushing it just to make sure it's completely un-readable. She and Louise rush to the final location, stopping to count thirty paces to the treasure. But seeing nothing, she angrily returns to the others -along with a confused Alfred and Winston- demanding to know where it is. She insists it's gone missing and tells Alfred to figure out where it went, but he's more confused over getting lost, telling Camille and Milo what happened before accidentally angering Camille as he wonders if she made a mistake.

Seeing as he has no choice he asks Cynthia to lead them to the treasure, and she shows everyone how they found nothing. He asks Mr. Thomas when he hid it, but Camille and Milo argue over the timing, saying it was between 7:00 am and 7:30 am. Alfred deems this to be a clue, then suggests they observe the area a little to see if they can find anything else.

Louise spots a dirty looking hat and Cynthia assumes it must belong to whoever stole the treasure. Milo tries it on until Alfred observes it to deduce that it's Mr. Russard's, causing Cynthia to hurriedly rush to his place to confront him on it. Alfred and his friends quickly try to give chase to convince her that she can't just assume things like that but she refuses to listen. Before she can knock on his door though, Alfred grabs the hat and they proceed to tug it; just as Mr. Russard opens the door and she pulls hard enough to fall over. 

He expresses joy in seeing his hat, as he didn't know where it went and he takes it back, bringing up that he lost it last spring and had been trying to locate it. As Cynthia begins to get flustered realizing her mistake, Alfred grins while informing her of the mildew that was covering it- much to her disgust.

By now the group return to Hedgequarters and they are unable to figure out what else could have happened. Alfred wonders if the lack of clues could be a clue in itself, and while they try to do some heavy thinking, he observes Louise resume taking pictures of Cynthia. He asks if she took pictures throughout the race, and after confirming she did he asks to see the camera.

He uploads the pictures onto his laptop and together everyone looks through the various images she got to see if anything looks odd or out of place. Everyone grows steadily frustrated as they realize Cynthia was cheating the entire competition, but she tries ignoring it to focus on the missing treasure. Alfred prints out some of the pictures and pins them to his board, only to realize something strange with the flower fields when Camille remarks on their shadows facing another direction than what she remembers.

Before they take off they go over the clues so far and Alfred realizes what happened. He points out that the direction of the flowers changed after Mr. Thomas planted the treasure chest. As young flowers, the sunflowers will turn to follow the sunlight in order to grow and get nutrients, so for them to figure out where the treasure chest really is they will need the flowers to match the right picture.

Anticipating finally getting to the treasure, everyone patiently waits until the time of day matches. Camille is able to find it and she claims that because of Cynthia's cheating, she shouldn't win. Milo and Mr. Thomas agree that Alfred and Winston rightfully earned it, and Cynthia angrily storms off- dragging Louise behind her.  The trio open the wrapped up gift to find a book about sunflowers, causing everyone to start laughing.
