"Prow Beaten" is the twenty-seventh episode of the Star Wars: Ewoks animated television series, and the fourteenth episode in season two. Written by Bob Carrau and directed by Raymond Jafelice, the episode originally aired on ABC on November 8, 1986.
The Fishing Festival was a big event in Bright Tree Village, and Wicket and Teebo wanted to help out in any way they could. As far as Chief Chirpa was concerned, this meant having the boys clean up his canoe. Whilst cleaning the raft, Kneesaa and Latara found the boys. After scrubbing the boat clean and taking it into the water, Latara asked for a canoe ride. The boys agree, and the four embarked. But the ride ended abruptly when the boat hit a rock, dumping the foursome into the river. Once Wicket and the others pulled the boat ashore, they realized that the special prow carving was missing from the front of the canoe. Fearing Chirpa's wrath, Wicket led the others in a search of the river.
Downstream, the Ewoks found the prow carving, but it was in the hands of the Duloks. When the four tried to retrieve the carving, they were captured and brought onboard the Duloks' battleship. They were then forced to help the Duloks row their way to Bright Tree Village, and Latara didn't hesitate to place the blame on Wicket. But Wicket soon made up for it when he enlisted the help of the Skibs to overthrow the Duloks. Wicket then commandeered the battleship and used its own catapult to bring about the ship's destruction. After abandoning ship, Wicket and the others watched in horror as the Ewok prow carving sank to the deep along with the ship.
That night, Wicket explained the whole ordeal to Chirpa. The four became extremely worried of Chirpa's punsihment; Wicket feared that the chief would have him bound to a pole and shot with stones, and Kneesaa fears that she may be outcast from home. But instead Chirpa commended the young ones and merely asked that they put a new prow carving on the boat. Wicket and the others were so surprised by Chirpa's words that all four of them passed out right then and there.
