Treasure is an animated series based on a newspaper column written by Michele Hanson, later collected in novel form as Treasure: The Trials of a Teenage Terror. The column (and the series) follow the life of a troublesome teenage girl named Treasure, as well as how her mother and grandmother handle her behavior. The series was a co-production between BBC Bristol in the United Kingdom and CINAR (later known as Cookie Jar Entertainment) in Canada. 26 10-minute segments (13 half-hours) are said to have been produced, though two of the episodes found so far contain multiple shorter segments.

The series is known to have aired on BBC2 in the United Kingdom and YTV in Canada. Some additional footage of the show can be found in a promo for the show airing on YTV's short-lived teen-oriented "Limbo" block. (While the block ended in 2001, the show continued to air on YTV without any special branding until at least 2002.)

One complete half-hour episode was originally uploaded by Angelus Summers to YouTube in 2013, containing "Two Faces of Treasure" and "Nightmare on Oxford St.", as well as a partial recording containing part of "Little Black Dress", "Night Club", and all of "Card Sharks" and "War Zone". Both of these recordings are direct VHS rips from the show's airing on YTV, with the complete episode including commercials from the time.

On July 20, 2020, Lost Media Wiki user EvansT uploaded another episode of the series, this time from its airing on BBC2. This episode contains the segments "Des Res", "Eco Treasure", "Vote for Me", "Big Day Out", and "Cat Walk".
