This spin-off of Disney's Hercules (1997) follows Hercules' many labors during the years he spent training how to be a hero under the tutelage of satyr Philoctetes. Olympian Gods and Goddesses, as well as Hades and Pegasus, often visit him.
The adventures of Ariel and her friends at the age of fourteen. From her first known trouble with Ursula to her collection of human objects, the show illustrates the princess's journey as she finishes growing up. It also introduced new characters such as Ariel's merboy friend (an orphan named Urchin who her family all saw as a little brother), the snobbish merteen called Pearl, the mobster lobster, Evil Manta, Sebastian's family, and an orca Ariel titled Spot.Written by
This show like Aladdin is an excellent show made after the fantastic original. It isn't as good as the film, which is an animated classic, but this is a childhood favourite of mine, that I am still very fond of. When I was little, I wanted to be like Ariel, and I loved everything about the show and the film, the animation, the songs and the characters. Standout episodes are "Whale of a Tale", "Wish Upon a Starfish" and "The Evil Manta"(or in Harmony).The songs in the show are amazing, with catchy lyrics. Can I also say that the theme tune is based on the songs in the original? Ariel is a beautiful, headstrong character, and Jodi Benson voiced her beautifully. I also loved the fact that Ariel is a little more resourceful and sympathetic in this series. Sebastian and Flounder provide excellent comic relief especially Sebastian who made me collapse in giggles more than once sometimes even in the same episode, and King Triton is an inspired father- figure. And where would we be without the villains? Lets see, Ursula (who scared the life out of me), Lobster Mobster(he is funny), and of course my favourite-Tim Curry's The Evil Manta, who like Ursula frightened me when I was little. Excellent show, with good education. 9/10 Bethany Cox
