"Asha" is the thirteenth episode in the Star Wars: Ewoks animated television series, and the thirteenth and final episode in season one. Written by Paul Dini and directed by Raymond Jafelice, the episode originally aired on ABC on November 30, 1985.

After a group of Ewoks have a run-in with the Duloks, Princess Kneesaa discovers that her lost sister Asha is alive and is living in the forest. Kneesaa and Wicket then set out on a quest to find her.



Wicket, Teebo, and Paploo are off by themselves in the forest, a day's gliderlight from home. They are going about there everyday lives; Wicket is catching water in his basket from a stream. Paploo is sleeping, and Teebo is walking near Paploo. Suddenly they hear Dulok voices, and decide to investigate. They watch as a group of Duloks chase a maramu, hoping to capture it. The bumbling Duloks nearly have it, but are knocked down a hill. Just as they get back up the hill and throw a net over the creature, they are scared away by an individual they identify as "The Red Ghost." After the Duloks run away, Wicket, Teebo, and Paploo go to the animal and help remove the net and set it free. However, "The Red Ghost" thinks they wish to harm the animal. But after she sees they mean no harm, she summons a korrina, which, to the surprise of the Ewoks, allows her to ride it. Wicket notes that Ewoks only hunt for food, unlike the Duloks who hunt for fun as well. The three Ewoks fly away in their gliders, with Teebo proclaiming he would never again return to that section of the forest.
