Role in the series
Swirling Whirling-pool first appeared in the episode "Bucky's Anchor Aweigh!". Here, Jake, Izzy, Cubby, Marina and their friend the Purple Octopus planned on giving Bucky a golden anchor as a gift. However, Captain Hook and Mr. Smee swipe the anchor taking it back to the Jolly Roger. Enraged, Bucky sails off in top speed after the Hook's ship, leaving Jake and the crew behind. Hook manages to lose Bucky by blocking Mermaid Lagoon using barrels and nets. But after witnessing the Never Dolphins leap over the net, Bucky does the same and proceed to chase after Hook once more. However, Hook was able to trick Bucky by sailing through fog leading to the Swirling Whirling-pool, a huge whirlpool in hopes of getting rid of Bucky for good. Luckily for Buck Jake and his friends manages to catch up to him using a small boat. Once onboard Bucky, Marina summons the dolphins to help pool Bucky from a large whirlpool's current. The dolphins later assist by distracting Captain Hook allowing Jake and his crew to sneak abroad the Jolly Roger and retrieve Bucky's golden anchor. The Swirling Whirling-pool reappears at the end of the episode as Captain Hook and his crew sail through the fog and get caught in Swirling Whirling-pool current forcing the villainous pirates to abandon ship. While Hook and his crew made it out safely, the Jolly Roger is quickly consumed by Swirling Whirling-pool.
