Storyline

As told to a psychiatrist: Mr. Peabody, middle-aged Bostonian on vacation with his wife in the Caribbean, hears mysterious, wordless singing on an uninhabited rock in the bay. Fishing in the vicinity, he catches...a mermaid. He takes her home and, though she has no spoken language, falls in love with her. Of course, his wife won't believe that thing in the bathtub is anything but a large fish. Predictable complications follow in rather tame fashion. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Trivia

"Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid" was shooting near a set where Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) was filming. Tourists were shocked to see Glenn Strange's Frankenstein Monster having lunch with Ann Blyth in her fishtail costume. Both Strange and 'Lon Chaney Jr' in his Wolfman make-up were invited to the Mr. Peabody wrap party, where they hammed it up in make-up. See more »

Goofs

In the underwater fight scene, one shot shows that the fishtail costume had clearly separated from Lenore's back. See more »

One of my all time childhood films
21 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have wanted to see this film for many years now and have been awaiting its release on DVD. It is a funny and whimsical film and I have seen it many times growing up. Mr. Peabody and The Mermaid is a film that was shown quite often as I was growing up, but I haven't seen it for years. Very funny movie and I can't wait until someone gets it out on DVD. This film was any young boys dream come true, to go out and catch a beautiful mermaid and to bring her home was such a wonderful fantasy. I rate this as one of my all time favorite films and can't wait until its long over due release on DVD. I have often tried to find a VHS copy and have not been able to do so. Perhaps it will appear soon.
