Episode 208: The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

Have you ever watched The Little Mermaid and thought to yourself, "Yeah, but what if the stern, taskmaster parent was Ariel, and the rebellious kid was her daughter? I'd like to see that movie!" No? Too bad! Because it absolutely exists, and it's this week's movie on Mousterpiece Cinema. Gabe and Josh are headed back to the ocean blue to talk about The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea, featuring all of your favorite characters: Ariel! Sebastian! Flounder! Scuttle! Morgana! Oh, you know who Morgana is: she's Ursula's crazy sister! If none of this sounds palatable to you, how about special guest Alan Scherstuhl of The Village Voice? (We should hope so.) Get ready for a wild, strange episode that invokes everything from Milhouse van Houten to Sarah Palin. (Really.) Check it out!

  1. I enjoyed this episode -- as it was mentioned, the fact that the movie is poorly made can lead to an interesting discussion about what is lacking. I've seen the third movie, though, and I don't think you'll dislike it nearly as much. The story isn't very memorable, but the way the characters behave is a little more in keeping with the original. And I think you'll like the animation a lot more, too.
