Episode 88 – The Little Mermaid The Animated Series
This week’s request comes from an unknown listener lost to the mists of time…If you ARE that listener, drop us a line and let us know! The Little Mermaid animated series was a short lived animated series based on the Disney film of the same name. This was a first for Disney, and was quite a big deal at the time. Even leading to animated TV series for other Disney properties. Both of us remember very little of this show, and neither of us remotely qualify as the prime demographic for this show. But what the hell, let’s dive in!
