Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson are invited to the Mardi Gras parade in Louisiana. They arrive at the house of Mr. Bagley, who provides them with Batman and Robin costumes for the parade. The duo choose to wear their actual uniforms and during the parade, a woman gives Batman a secret envelope. This causes some thugs to attack the dynamic duo, but the heroes manage to overcome the odds.

Afterwards, Batman learns that the envelope contains the secret location of a missing treasure and that Bagley was responsible for the attack on them. Batman manages to locate the woman who gave him the envelope and she informs Batman about the lost treasure. Batman, Robin and the lady go to the marked place, unaware that Bagley and his thugs are following them.

When they finally reach the lost boat in which the treasure is located, Bagley strikes and manages to place the heroes in a deadly trap. Batman breaks free and helps Robin and the lady to get out of the trap. Then, they work together to stop Bagley and his henchmen. During the struggle, a fire starts and the boat is consumed by the flames.
