"Capture the Fishmobile" is the 24th episode of Season 3 of Wild Kratts, originally airing on PBS Kids on April 22, 2015.[1] Overall it is the 90th episode of the series. The episode was written and directed by Chris Kratt.

In this episode, the Kratt brothers challenge their teammates to a game they call “Capture the Fishmobile”, in which they utilize Creature Powers to capture their teammates as they ride around in the ocean in miniature fish-themed vehicles called Fishmobiles.


The episode begins with a live-action segment. The Kratt brothers find two birds — a spoonbill and a pelican — on the southern coast of Florida. Afterward, they ask their "What if?" question, and the show transitions into the cartoon segment.

The Kratt brothers, miniaturized and riding aquatic vehicles called Fishmobiles, join a school of fish. They test the Fishmobiles out by synchronizing them with the movements of the fish. Afterward the test, they return to the research ship where the rest of the Wild Kratts are and return to normal size. Chris says to Aviva and Koki that, although he likes the Fishmobiles, he would rather not move around in the ocean in one. To prove his point, he comes up with a game which he calls “Capture the Fishmobile”, in which he and his brother will attempt to use Creature Powers to try to catch their crew members riding in Fishmobiles. If they fail to catch them by sunset, the crew wins. If not, they win.

The game starts. Aviva, Koki, and Jimmy miniaturize and get into the Fishmobiles. Martin picks them up and throws them into the water, where they join a school of menhaden. Martin makes his first move by activating his Sperm Whale Creature Power Suit and catches several menhaden, but neither crew member. Chris makes his first move by activating Frogfish Power. He is able to suck in Aviva before the others find out and escape. Chris resurfaces and spits Aviva onto Martin. Suddenly, a pelican dives upon Chris. Chris is able to deactivate in time. Martin names the pelican Gular because the skin around a pelican’s neck is called gular skin.

Martin uses Osprey Powers, dives feet-first, and catches Koki. Koki uses the Fishmobile’s fins to tickle Martin, causing him to let her go. Back at the Tortuga, Aviva, now normal size decides to secretly make a Pelican Power Suit for the thrill of it. However, the Kratt brothers see her make the final touches. They hide behind a book cabinet. Aviva unknowingly places the finished disc in Martin’s mouth before leaving the control room. The Kratt brothers then plot their next plan.

Chris in Pelican Power is taking the miniaturized crew (from right to left: Martin, Jimmy, Koki, and Aviva) on a trip into the sunset.

The Kratt brothers use Dolphin Powers to circle the menhaden school and move them up to the surface. Martin catches Koki, and Chris catches Jimmy using Pelican Powers, concluding the game with the Kratts victorious. The Wild Kratts head back to the Tortuga, and at the end, Chris takes the miniaturized crew on a trip into the sunset.

The show transitions into the concluding live action segment. The Kratt brothers are canoeing on coastal waters to a pelican rookery, where they watch pelicans catch fish. Afterward, they conclude the episode by saying “Keep on creature adventuring; we’ll see you on the creature trail!”

Key Facts and Creature Moments

  • Fish use their side-facing eyes to stay in sync with everybody else in the school.
  • Sperm whales eat mostly squid and octopus with their thin, toothy jaws. Humpback whales specialize in going after schools of fish with their big, huge, net-like mouth for scooping up hundreds at a time.
  • A pelican's throat pouch is like a big, giant net made of skin and beak.
  • Pelicans hunt fish by using their gular pouch - in a similar fashion to a net - to scoop up fish from the water.
  • Pelicans are smart birds. They know an opportunity for food when they see one.


  • Jimmy sports an orange/brown wet suit that - unlike Koki and Aviva's - is more similar in appearance to the Kratt brothers', only lacking the Wild Kratts insignia.
  • Martin is ticklish in his stomach.
