Plot[edit]

The Springfield Museum transport their cro-magnong dolls to their storehouse on a pick-up truck. When the truck drives over a bump on a bridge, one of the dolls jumps out of the pick-up and ends up in the river. It's snowing, and Bart goes out to go sledding, despite having no sled. He then starts to build his own sled, and it's not long before Homer starts to help him, but he quickly gives up. Homer then goes over to the Flanders' house and gives Bart their sled. Bart runs to the park where Martin and Milhouse are being attacked by snowballs from Dolph, Kearney, Nelson and Jimbo. Bart is waiting for them to stop throwing snowballs before he goes to Martin and Milhouse and ask if they want to go sleighing. Bart goes down the hill in the park that ends at the river, which now consists of a layer of ice. Bart discovers there a cave man in the ice, and Martin says that it is a 35,000 years old cave man. They decide to start to cover their discovery with pine boughs and wait for the press come. While they cover their discovery by the pine boughs, the bullies came over and discovers what Bart and his friends have discovered. Martin tells them that they should go to a museum but the bullies want to receive money for it. Martin and Nelson begin to argue about what idea is best, meanwhile Bart and Milhouse call the press, and Dolph, Kearney and Jimbo walk away to collect tools to dig up the cave man. The press comes to the caveman with Bart and Milhouse before Dolph, Kearney and Jimbo came back. The press then tell the kids that it is a doll that the museum has lost, but they'll get a reward for finding it. The bullies come back with their tools and tells the press that it was them that found it first and don't let Bart, Milhouse and Martin tell the truth that they discovered it. The next day it is time for the bullies to collect their reward for the discovery, when the understand they got free admission to the museum, they bullies hate the reward and run away while Bart, Milhouse and Martin laugh at them.
