Storyline

In this episode we are introduced to Urchin, a brand new character that will become part of the series' central cast. This episode showcases a different view on friendship, and how even something as simple as the desire to have a friend can be harmful. To be true, pick your friends wisely.

Lobster Mobster and Da Shrimp are a pair of undersea crooks who are out to "take over" something before an even more notorious crook named Crab Louie arrives in Atlantica. They encounter Urchin, an orphan merboy who pretends to be independent and tough as nails, but actually craves friendship. Lobster Mobster pretends to offer friendship in the guise of joining his "gang", which Urchin eagerly accepts. First task as part of the gang is to steal some food. When Urchin hears that the Neptune Ball is underway at the royal palace, he sabotages the dance and makes off with a sack of food during the commotion. However, his actions are witnessed by none other than Triton, Ariel and Flounder.

The debut of Mobster Lobster, Urchin and Da Shrimp and a great one too!
24 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

As I've said, "The Little Mermaid" is one of my favourite shows. While this isn't an all time favourite, it is still very entertaining. Here, we are introduced to two diabolical villains Mobster Lobster and Da Shrimp, and also the debut of a lonely mer boy named Urchin. Mobster Lobster and Da Shrimp make this episode as entertaining as it is, and Urchin is a very likable character. As usual, the music dialogue and animation are all great, and Ariel, voiced by the fantastic Jodi Benson is still one of my favourite Disney characters and that is never going to change, no matter what. Jim Cummings also impresses as Crab Louie, shame really he doesn't have long enough to shine more and Joe Alaskey voices Mobster Lobster in one of his most entertaining voice roles. Two of my favourite scenes were the Neptune Ball and when Sebastian tries to convince Mobster Lobster that HE was Crab Louie. Overall, great episode. 9/10 Bethany Cox.
