It's Jen's birthday. He makes his wish and he finds out that his wish ends up in Birthday Wish Island. They search hard for it. They finally found the island. Jen makes a sandwich for lunch for the quest. He found his birthday wish. It was his special dance floor cartoon. They danced all day long. Then, Chuckles found his birthday wish, a toy train shark that would eat Jen. The shark went to the dance floor, drag Jen out of the cartoon and ate him. His sailor hat felt in the sandwich. Chuckles steals the sandwich and eats it while the hat went to the shark causing it to turn evil.

Theme Song Edit
The theme song was a tall tale written by Tom Kenny and Mark Rendell. Howdie Mandell spoke the poem. It says:
Once upon a time.
There was a boy. A special little boy.
His parents died and he was raised by a mute boat.
He was discovered by a raggedy pirate that chuckles.
When the baby got older, he made friends with the pirate.
He wishes to become a pirate as well. But until then,
His codename... is... Jen the Sailor Boy.
