Storyline

For all that Ariel gets into adventures and mischief, she's got a pretty good head on her shoulders. In this episode gives in to her baser instincts and ends up doing something classically teenage-girly.

Like every other typical teenhood situation in the movies/on tv, there is one alpha female on the block who decides on what's hot and what's not. In Atlantica, that happens to be Pearl (who first appeared in the episode Red), and whom Ariel admires for her effortless cool... which is kinda understandable, since Ariel is quite the outcast among her merfolk peers.

When Ariel hears her sister Alana is going to a party at Pearl's house, Ariel shyly asks if she can come along. Pearl says yes, Ariel is excited, Alana decides to give her sister a makeover, and Flounder is skeptical about the whole thing (being a boy and all). Ariel and Alana ask their father for permission to go to the party, and it's granted because King Triton feels that it's okay as long as Pearl's parents will be around ...

Ariel in Eel-Ectric City
23 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

Yet another nice episode to a truly great series. The plot is simple, but is effective and entertaining. The animation is usual is beautiful and crisp with lovely underwater backgrounds and the animation of Eel-Ectric City is excellent, and the music is fine. The characters are great, with Sebastian fun as always and King Triton the inspiring but firm father-figure. Pearl is a good supporting character, while Ariel is still the headstrong, sympathetic and free-spirited little mermaid we know and love from the Disney classic. One thing I noticed, Ariel looks really nice with her hair up, don't get me wrong her hair is beautiful long, but that high pony-tail style really suits her. The voice acting is without fault, Jodi Benson is wonderful as Ariel, Kenneth Mars is suitably wise and firm as King Triton and Cree Summer is a nice surprise as Pearl. Overall, a nice episode. 9/10 Bethany Cox
