The Treasure of Sierra Avenue is the 7th episode of Season 2 of the The Brady Bunch TV series, and the 32nd overall episode in the series. Written by Gwen Bagni and Paul Dubov and directed by Oscar Rudolph, the episode premiered on ABC-TV, airing on November 6, 1970.
The boys discover a wallet containing $1,100 in a vacant lot. The girls want a share of the money but the boys refuse, causing tension between the groups. Mike and Carol tell the kids that they must turn the wallet in to the police. In the process, the boys learn that honesty and integrity are more important in life than "finders keepers."
Greg, Peter and Bobby are playing football alone in a vacant lot when Bobby finds a wallet without any identification in it, but a lot of large bills. After taking it home, Greg finds that the wallet contains exactly $1,100. The three first argue about who gets to keep the money, and following that argument the boys have a fight with the girls about whether they will share the money with them, which the boys refuse to do. It may be a moot point if the owner of the wallet comes forward. Mike suggests turning the wallet over to the police, but Mike still places an ad in the lost and found section much to the boys' chagrin. Because of the way all the children are acting, Mike and Carol hope that the owner does come forward, not only for the owner's sake, but also to keep the peace in the house. The question becomes who will get what they want as a result of the found wallet?
