Season 2, Episode 2: Calliope Dreams

King Triton wants Ariel to play the sea calliope: an instrument resembling an organ. However, she instead wants to play the new harp she found. The music from the calliope awakens the Seaclops. It is up to Ariel and friends to find a way to put the Seaclops to sleep again (in this episode, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart has a cameo appearance). King Triton’s paternal grandfather (Ariel’s great-grandfather) also appears for the first time and Pearl makes her third appearance.

Season 2, Episode 3: Save the Whale

Ariel rescues a Bad-Luck Creature named Lucky, putting all of Atlantica in a panic, and must make her own luck when Ursula comes after the creature after her potions have been backfiring countless times.

Season 2, Episode 5: Giggles

A grumpy sorcerer blowfish’s magic spell causes Ariel to create sea quakes whenever she laughs, then Flounder and Sebastian turn into a shark, a killer whale, a giant squid and a humpback whale, and then swap bodies.

Season 2, Episode 6: Wish Upon a Starfish

A big wave grabs a ballerina music box during a thunderstorm, and Ariel, Flounder, and Sebastian try to get it, but it is unable to reach. Ariel befriends a deaf-mute Latina mermaid named Gabriella, and both of them decide to seek out the magical Wishing Starfish (voiced by Tony Jay) to make their dreams come true. (Note: this is the first appearance of Gabriella. Also, the title is a play on “When You Wish Upon a Star” from the Disney animated film Pinocchio).

Season 2, Episode 7: Tail of Two Crabs

Sebastian feels threatened by Zeus, an old arch-rival crab who is better than him at everything, while Ursula works on a plan to turn Triton, Ariel, and others into sea polyps by using a magic stone (Note: this episode is a parody of A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens).

Season 2, Episode 8: Metal Fish

A human explorer-known in the episode as the author of the original The Little Mermaid story, Hans Christian Andersen-boards a primitive submarine to explore the undersea realm, and crosses paths with Ariel when his submarine is damaged and starts to leak.

Season 2, Episode 9: T’ank you Dat, Ariel

Ariel enters a magic cave to become a sea witch and uses her newfound magical abilities to make Sebastian a great big crab. Unfortunately, she is not quite specific about the size she wishes Sebastian to attain, thus causing quite a commotion wherever he goes.
