The Valley of Nowhere first appeared in the episode "Pirate Genie-in-a-Bottle!". As Jake and his crew travel with Pip the Pirate Genie to the Treasure Wishing Well, Pip's ship-in-a-bottle gets stolen from Jake and his friends by Captain Hook and his scurvy crew. When Hook realized that Pip can't grant wishes as he was, they continued onward to the Valley of Nowhere and the Treasure Wishing Well to restore Pip's powers. With Pip's powers restored and his ship-in-a-bottle still in Captain Hook's grasp, he had no choice but to grant Hook's wishes. While bickering with his crew, Hook's words were taken literately by Pip, transporting Hook and his crew back to the Jolly Roger, wasting Hook's first wish.
