TLM references...maybe
14 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode aired in October of 1990, about a year after the Disney movie "The Little Mermaid" which guest star Christopher Barnes had done the voice of Prince Eric in, was released, and there are vague references to the film in this episode (or at least interesting coincidences)

Chris' character "Kevin Kelly"

  • Liked Minneaoplis because that's where Prince is from.




  • Played on the football team for St. Sebastian HS.




  • Dorothy's threat was "If Kevin Kelly doesn't play in Saturday's game,


Dorothy Z. will sleep with the fishes under the sea ..."

  • After "Kevin" broke his leg, Dororthy said tutoring him was like


"shooting fish in a barrel."
