Cartoon Summary:

While the kids are doing a stunt show at a state fair, Kuma is kidnapped. Kuma comes home early the next morning, all dirty and with a collar and chewed-off leash, and shows Dan a nickel, quarter and penny (31 cents). When Dan and Tess won't listen, he shows them to Daisy. The two guys nab Kuma again. Daisy chases after them with Wheels, but is pulled over by the police. Dan and Tess finally realize that Kuma was referring to Mt. Rushmore and Dan & Roadie race there. The two bad guys have Kuma trying to dig out a piece of Jefferson's eyebrow. Dan spots him and tries to pull him up, only to have the rope break and ends up hanging off of Jefferson's nose. Kuma gets the bad guys the eyebrow, but in return, they don't save Dan as they had promised. They leave, with the eyebrow and Kuma. Roadie sees their van leaving, puts a tracer on it and radios Tess for help. Tess, Daisy and Roadie save Dan then go after the bad guys. They find the van, abandoned with Kuma inside. The bad guys have gone off, heading to a landing strip. The kids chase after, only to have Daisy grabbed by the bad guys. Kuma is able to grab the eyebrow and in the ensuing struggle it breaks open revealing an Indian artifact. Finally, Wheels hooks the bad guys. The kids learn that the Diamond Indian Totem pole had been stolen, and the thief had hidden it in some mortar being used to repair the eyebrow.
