Role in the series
Snappy first appeared in the episode The Old Shell Game After thwarting Captain Hook's plan to steal the shell from the sea pups. Jake and his crew return to Pirate Island, where they learn the shell was the home of a Hermit Crab, so Izzy set him free.
The Hermit Crab would later return in the episode "The Mermaid's Song." In the episode, the crab's name was revealed as Snappy as he tagged along with Stormy the mermaid as her brief partner-in-crime while the young mermaid used the power of the "Mermaid's Song" to hypnotize Captain Hook, Mr. Smee, and Cubby. Snappy the Hermit Crab would later rush off to warn Marina about her sister abusing the power of the Mermaid's Song.
Snappy makes a brief cameo in the episode "Captain Who?" as Jake and his crew try to restore Captain Hook's memory. Snappy makes a brief appearance at the end of "Treasurefalls!" retrieving Cubby's lost Skull-N-Bones marble from the bottom of Never Sea, and returns it back to Cubby.
Snappy reappears in the episode "Jake's Royal Rescue" rehearsing a song with Sandy the Starfish and Stormy in Queen Coralie honor held at Hidden Cove. After Queen Coralie is rescued by Jake and his crew from Captain Hook and return to Hidden Cove, Snappy can be spotted successfully singing with Sandy, Marina, Stormy, and the mermaids.
