A WHALE SINGS
What are you doing, maties?
We are listening to the most popular song of the summer.
Er, doesn't sound like any sea shanty I've ever heard.
That's because it's a whale song made by humpback whales.
These whales are on their way to their summer feeding grounds.
They use their songs to talk to each other
and they can hear the songs even when they are miles and miles apart.
The song they are singing now has been really popular this year.
All the humpbacks are singing it. It's the only song on the radio.
here and here.
Humpbacks all over the world are singing the exact same song.
-Let me try.
Hang on. That's new.
Maybe they got tired of the old song.
No, I mean it sounds different. I've never heard a voice like it before.
-Maybe these whales have, Dashi.
-Good idea, Captain.
-Excuse me, humpback whales.
Sorry to interrupt your journey but we just wondered if you'd ever
heard a song like this before.
Er, no. Not heard that before.
It doesn't even sound like a humpback.
The singing doesn't match anything in the Octopod sound collection.
Whatever's making that noise,
-there's nothing like it in the ocean.
-This could be an entirely new
-species of whale.
-Or an entirely new species of sea monster.
Well, there's only one way to find out.
Octonauts, it's time to investigate.
I'm picking up something big on the tracker. Very big.
It should be on the other side of this reef.
Ah! There's nothing here.
-No, but I thought I saw something.
-The tracker is still saying it's up ahead.
Then let's go, maties.
It's gone again.
I get the feeling it doesn't want to be disturbed.
Let's go forward gently this time so we don't scare it,
whatever it is.
-It sounds so sad.
Like the world's loneliest sea monster.
Or the world's loneliest whale.
That's a humpback whale.
But his voice is like no humpback I've ever heard.
I think he's looking for food.
He's a young one and he looks very skinny, Captain.
Then he might need our help. Activate helmets.
Hello there. That's a very interesting song you're singing.
Oh, thanks. It's my "I'm hungry" song.
My name's Joe, by the way.
Are you on your own, Joe?
Yep, I'm pretty much always on my own.
I guess the other humpbacks kind of don't understand my singing.
Captain, Joe is far from the summer feeding grounds.
Without the other whales to show him the way,
-he won't have enough to eat.
-Joe, why don't you come with us
to our Octopod and we'll see if we can help you?
I don't suppose there's any food at this here Octopod?
I'm kind of hungry.
-Right behind you.
Mm, These here fish biscuits are pretty good.
Captain, I think I have found the cause of Joe's unusual voice.
What is it, Peso?
These are the tubes inside Joe's nose
and these are the tubes inside a typical humpback's nose.
-See how much smaller Joe's are?
Whales sing by pushing air through their nose,
but because Joe's tubes are so narrow, his songs sound different.
Aha. So that's why the other whales can't understand me.
Wow! What was that?!
Oh, gee! Just my tummy rumbling.
I don't suppose you have any more of those fish biscuits?
Captain, Joe can't just eat fish biscuits.
He needs a proper whale diet.
Yeah, and the vegetables need a break.
Hmm. Joe needs food, and fast, so we need to get him
to join a group of whales
who'll show him to the summer feeding grounds.
The last group is on its way to the feeding grounds.
After they've gone,
there are no more humpbacks in this part of the ocean.
Then time is running out.
Dashi, sound the Octo-alert!
Octonauts to the launch bay!
Octonauts, Joe here is hungry and all alone.
If we're going to help him,
we need to find a way to make the other whales understand Joe's song.
I might have an idea, captain.
With a little help, I think I could build a special machine that Joe
can wear that will make his voice sound like the other humpbacks.
But won't that take a long time?
I'll have it done faster than you can say
bunch of munchy crunchy fish biscuits!
It's our best shot. Octonauts, let's do this!
All right, everybody, take a look.
This here is the Joe Coder.
Here you are, Joe. You can wear the Joe Coder on your neck.
Just jab it with your fin when you want to sing,
and your songs will go from this...
HIGH-PITCHED WHALE SONG
Hey! I sound like a regular humpback!
Now I can... Oh!
Nothing to worry about, I've just got to fix this.
Phew, the problem is fixed.
But now Joe's gone. The loud noise frightened him.
We better find him fast or the other humpbacks will be gone for good.
There's no time to lose. Let's go!
No sign of him, captain.
We found Joe before, so we can do it again.
Peso, check the tracker and look for a big shape.
I'm looking at the tracker, and it's covered in big shapes.
Of course, we're surrounded by whales.
We have to find Joe before they pass by
on their way to the feeding ground.
Maybe we could sing.
I'm not sure now is the time for singing!
No, I mean, what if we could use the coder to make me sound like Joe?
Good idea! Then Joe will want to see who else sings like him.
I'll just change that and reverse this,
and there! That ought to do the trick.
Right, Peso, go for it!
Well, here goes nothing. I hope you're listening, Joe.
HE SINGS A WHALE SONG
What was that?
It might be my tummy, I think I ate something funny for lunch.
HE SINGS HIGHER
Keep trying, peso, you can do it!
PESO SINGS AGAIN
-He's done it, Captain!
Now we just have to hope Joe can hear it,
and wants to see who's singing his song.
There aren't many whales left to pass, Captain.
-Soon it'll be too late.
-Come on, Joe, where are you?
What? That sounds like my voice!
Peso! Where did you learn to sing like that?
I'll show you, Joe.
Oh, it ain't going to make that terrible noise again, is it?
It's fixed, I promise.
HE SINGS DEEPLY
Wow, I can't believe it. It worked!
Now, that's more like it.
Let's just hope someone is listening.
-Hey, who's that singing?
-What a great song!
It's our pal Joe.
-I love your style!
-We're on our way to the feeding grounds.
-You should come with us.
-Oh, gee, thanks!
And thank you, Octonauts, for helping me sing my song.
Listen! They're all singing your song! Now, go!
Good work, everyone.
Joe should have no trouble finding the feeding grounds,
now that he's teamed up with the other humpbacks.
-And they really seem to like his song.
-It's not just Joe's friends.
Humpbacks are singing it everywhere!
THE VEGETABLES SING ALONG
It looks like it's catching on here too!
