Theodore's Whistle is the first episode of the second season.
Theodore thinks that his cute, little whistle is not fit for an important, special tug in charge. He tries so hard to whistle like the big tugs that soon he can't whistle at all. As a result, he misses out on one of his favorite jobs, escorting the grand ocean liner Queen Stephanie. When he finds out that the Queen missed his unique whistle, Theodore learns to appreciate the value of who he is.
