Animator Mark Flood credits this film with helping him achieve some of the success that he has had in his animation career - when looking up this film one day, he read that it had won a prize at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival, prompting him to take a look, and several months later, his film The Freak Next Door (2012) was accepted and screened at the festival after he submitted it upon reading about it.

I bought this movie for my 5-year old son who loves sea creatures. I bought the movie on a Friday and over the weekend, he watched it at least 10 times. It's his favourite movie and I must say I like it very much as well. The animation is very well-done and the angles are unique and interesting. My son still watches it twice a day, every day.
Does anyone know of any other sea-related cartoons, other than Finding Nemo?
I think this is an excellent movie for children. It's educational (teaches about sea creatures) and the story line is one of the most original I've come across.
