The Baby Whale

"Whales Tales" is the 26th and final episode of Season 1. The snorks find a baby whale and try to bring it back to its mother.

The episode begins with some fisherman trying to catch some bait. A mother whale and her baby are swimming arund when a big giant shark tries to eat the baby. The mother stops him, but the baby gets caught in the fishing net. Meanwhile, Casey's trying to teach Daffney how to drive, but Daffney's not doing too well as she's speeding way too fast. Daffney almost hits a school bus when her, Casey, and Tooter spot the same baby whale tied up in the same net.

They decide they should take it to Allstar to see what he should do with it, but they can't bring a whale into Snorkland. As a result, they hide it in a large pile of seaweed. They lie to Junior by telling him they're going on a "Seaweed Salad Diet," but he knows something's suspicious. They take it to Allstar, who decides to use the Silver Fish to take it beyond the limits. Junior finds out about the whale and tries to arrest them for whale smuggling.
