Twilight Sparkle's Retro Media Library


It all starts when the Fratellis escape from jail. Mikey and the other Goonies have to move out to Detroit because their house is going to get destroyed. But they find some rich stuff in the attic, until one of them finds a map that is completely written in Spanish. This leads them off to an adventure they've never been on. In order to reach the pirate ship, they must go down a fireplace, break pipes, beware of Willy's pranks, and most of all, play a tune on the skeleton bones like a piano. Lastly, they must take down a water slide and they'll find the rich treasure. But the Fratellis are after them, so they must hurry and find that rich stuff before they are forced to move to Astoria, Oregon.
