The Golden Dolphin

Plot Summary

While the Snork Patrol is on duty, they hear noises coming through the sonar. They soon learn that it's a dolphin, and Jojo, who can speak "good dolphin," says that it needs their help. They take Corky's sub and swim over to it, and much to their surprise it's a baby golden dolphin who got separated from its family. Jojo tries to translate what it's saying some more, but they can't seem to understand each other.

A sailor up in dry space is on his boat with his crew members, and he keeps going on a maniacle rant about how he wants to capture the golden dolphin. He sees it, so he chases after the snorks for it. They see this, so they try to stop the human captain by jumping onto his ship and tying his shoes together as well as causing mayhem all over the ship itself via messing with the controls. But the captain wants to capture the snorks, and he actually does so until they escape upon rescuing the golden dolphin. The ship itself then floods with water, but the golden dolphin is back with his family.
