Theodore the Tattletug is the seventeenth episode of the fifth season.


Theodore comes across one of Emily's lifeboats adrift. Being afraid that Emily might be hurt, he rushes to tell the Dispatcher. Being helpful makes Theodore feel proud and important. He even imagines receiving awards. Suddenly, everything in the Big Harbour seems like an incident worthy of The Dispatcher's immediate attention. Instead of waking up Northumberland when the sub is in the way, Theodore tells The Dispatcher. Then he reports that Digby's cable spools are loose and that Carla is speeding. But in the time it takes Theodore to report that George's tow rope is too long, Brunswick gets hurt. Theodore realizes that he could have prevented the accident if he had just told George instead of running to The Dispatcher. He learns that tattling isn't usually the best way to solve a problem.
