Storyline

Ariel pines wih curiousity about humans and takes Flounder with her to meet Arcamedies, an older merman who's a humanologist and attempts to explain to Ariel about human things. (Arcamedies would've been a great character for further episodes as well as the orignal TLM film, but he only appears in this episode.) As well Sebastian's taking his three little crab scouts on a camping trip in the wilderness nearby.

During their adventures together that day, a man in his late 20s or early 30s, enters a submarine shaped like a fish and he and his pet cat dive under water o explore the bottom of the sea. He is amazed at all of the sights he sees, until his fish submarine springs a leak. Ariel, Flounder, Arcamedies, Sebastian & the crab scouts, and eventually even Triton, find the submarine and try to rescue the passengers. THere's a moment when Ariel and the passenger stare at each other, and you wonder at the connection they make, but then Triton sends the metal fish back to the surface.

The episode with the appearance of author Hans Christian Andersen
24 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

This was beautiful and funny. Sebastian and his crab scouts were very, very funny, meanwhile Ariel is intrigued by a metal fish not realising that it is the author Hans Christian Andersen inside, and later she has to save his life. The animation is colourful and vibrant, exactly how I like animation in a TV show. The music is lovely, as is Jodi Benson as Ariel. Hans Christian Andersen was portrayed very well, and Mark Hamill voiced him perfectly. His sketch of Ariel at the end of the episode was absolutely beautiful. Another great character is Archimedes, a mer man who knows a lot about the human world and is treated like an outcast. King Triton is given more to do here, and that was great, as I like him, he kind of reminds me of my grandfather. All in all, beautiful. 9/10 Bethany Cox
