"The morning is shining, the wind is set fair, not a cloud in the sky and a tang in the air, the ship's spic and span and the cargo's inside, and we'll put out to sea on the evening tide". Sailors of the Saucy Sally are set to go to sea with their pirate captain Will Atkins. But before they set off - Will is determined to get a treasure map from young Robinson Crusoe - by any means. He entices Robbie to sail with him to the Caribbean, and to keep the upperhand, Will abducts Robinson's girlfriend Polly to use as a bargaining tool. Joining the sailors is Mrs. Crusoe and Robbie's younger brother Billy.
At sea, Robinson discovers the abducted Polly and as a fight breaks out, a storm blows in. The ship goes down carrying Robinson with it. In the swirling deep waters, Robinson is saved by Aphrodite and makes it to land. The island on which Robinson finds himself is a habitable spot - he has found company with Toto the monkey, Polly the parrot, a goat, a dog and two cats. Just as things begin to get boring, a party of cannibals comes ashore carrying their dinner - Robinson scares them off with his gun and the cannibal's dinner becomes his good friend Friday. In short order Billy and Mrs. Crusoe steer their raft onto Robinson's island and they bring news that Will Atkins is also on the island with Polly as his captive.
The reunited Crusoe family with the rescued Polly, set off to reclaim the lost treasure from the Ruined Temple on the other side of the island. Just as the fearless five make their way to the temple, Will Atkins appears again and just as he is about to steal the gold, Friday saves the day, and gives Robinson the upper hand. They are all saved when an English ship pulls to shore, ready to take them back home to England.
