List of Wild Kratts episodes

"Seahorse Rodeo", sometimes styled as "Sea Horse Rodeo", is the twelfth episode of the second season of Wild Kratts, originally airing on PBS Kids on December 23, 2013.[1] Overall, it is the 52nd episode of the series. The episode was written and directed by Martin Kratt.

In this episode, the Kratt brothers are helping Aviva gather information on the characteristics and abilities of seahorses in the Caribbean Sea when fashion designer Donita Donata calls them. After realizing that they are hanging out with seahorses, Donita is inspired to make seahorse-themed jewelry.


The episode begins with a live action segment. The Kratt brothers dive down into the water and find a seahorse after searching for unusual fish. Afterwards, they ask their "What if?" question and the show transitions into the cartoon segment.

The Kratt brothers are riding horses on a beach in the Caribbean Sea, when the horses forcefully stop and toss them into the water. Not minding, they decide to check out the life on the reef, in which they find some seahorses. The Kratt brothers explain to the teammates that seahorses are fish and what makes them fish. The Kratt brothers plan to miniaturize so they can "ride" the seahorses, but an interested Aviva takes advantage of the situation and tells them to find more information on seahorses so she can make a Seahorse Power Disc. While the Kratt brothers are observing the habits of the seahorses, Donita Donata calls the Kratt brothers. Martin fails to make her think that they are not hanging out with seahorses, and Donita is inspired to make seahorse-themed jewelry. The Kratt brothers warn their teammates and tell them to distract Donita while they find something interesting about the seahorses. After miniaturizing, the first thing the Kratt brothers notice is that seahorses can camouflage themselves. Later, the Kratt brothers find out that seahorses suck in their prey. Soon after, the Kratt brothers find out that seahorse males give birth.

Donita's jet arrives at the Tortuga. To distract Donita, Jimmy executes his plan: holograms of jewels above the Tortuga. Donita attempts to grab one of the jewels, but soon realizes that the jewels are holograms, and she removes them from view. Afterwards, her henchman Dabio takes the jet down, and she orders him to set up the filter to suck up the seahorses.

The Kratt brothers return to normal size. Jimmy sends them the finished Seahorse Power Discs, and the two activate their Creature Power Suits. Donita's filter lowers afterwards, which fails to suck in any seahorses. Donita orders Dabio to take her down in her submarine, and she stops in front of the Kratt brothers. She asks them what happened to the seahorses, but the Kratt brothers say they are the only seahorses around, and then they change their skin color to yellow. Donita is disgusted by this, and she resurfaces and heads off in her jet. The Kratt brothers then release the hidden seahorses from their pouches.

The show transitions into the ending live action segment. The Kratt brothers dive down into the water again to take a closer look at seahorses. Afterwards, the Kratt brothers conclude the episode by saying "Keep on creature adventuring; we'll see you on the creature trail!"
