"Thunderbasket" is an episode of Special Agent Oso.
While Wolfie trains Oso to clear a big boulder off a railroad track with help from Whirlybird, Paw Pilot calls in a special alert. A boy named Pete is having trouble shooting a basketball, and his babysitter Susan is a great basketball player, so Oso teaches Pete how to get better at it.
- The three steps for shooting a basketball were also demonstrated in the Agent Oso short series, Three Healthy Steps.
- The episode's title is a reference to the James Bond film Thunderball.
