Come Back Little Seal Girl is the twelfth episode of the first season which was broadcast on February 11, 2001.
Ginger, Dodie, and Macie agree on doing a skit devoted to The Little Seal Girl, their childhood hero, for the school talent show. Ginger and Dodie, however, quickly become convinced that it's too juvenile and back-out. Macie feels betrayed and goes solo. Meanwhile, Carl touches a mummified hand of his teacher's that is supposedly cursed.
It's time for the annual Lucky Junior High talent show and Dodie really wants she, Ginger, and Macie to win. They decide to stick with tradition and do their Little Seal Girl act but it's not long before word gets out and the other kids start making fun of it. Ginger and Dodie think it may be too juvenile to perform and want to change acts but Macie will not hear of it. Carl is fascinated by the mummified hand Mrs. Gordon brings to class.

(In the middle of Macie's performance...) Courtney: Miranda, is it me, or is there something terribly endearing about her?
Ginger: Break a leg, Courtney. Miranda: Ha, you wish. Courtney: So how come your not in the talent show, Ginger? I thought it was a "B-L-T." Ginger: It's kind of a long story, but I guess the reason is pretty silly.
Dodie: When Courtney sees just how great our act is, she'll understand this BFT is a really special one and she'll forget all about being mad at you. Ginger: You really think so? Macie: Nope, but denial can be a great healer.
Dodie and Ginger: (waving their hands with fins on them) Cha! Courtney: I'm feeling a very unfamiliar emotion again, Miranda. Miranda: I think you may be embarrassed for them. I know I am.
Macie: Seal Girl lives on!
Macie: Do I look like a girl who's concerned with what's cool?
- If you look closely in the scene where Macie throws the flipper, in the crowd of girls who catch it, you can see some familiar faces: Hope, Darren, and Jean-Pierre.
- Lyrics to Little Seal Girl: Most folks think that I'm not real 'cause I'm half girl and I'm half seal. I'm a little seal girl living in the real world and it's so hard to get by 'cause seals can't even cry. But in this enless, boundless sea is there no one who looks like me? I know I must stay chipper one day I'll find a friend to hold my flipper 'cause I'm a little seal girl living in the real world and it's so hard to get by 'cause seals can't even cry.
- During Macie's musical number, she throws off one of her flippers, but she's wearing them both when she picks up her trophy.
- And speaking of Macie's number: Just where does the music at the end come from?
