"FLOUNDER BABY, WHAT IS YOU DOIN BABY?"
Little Mermaid's Island was a project proposed by #JimHenson in 1990, during talks with The Walt Disney Company, as a spin-off of #Disney 's animated film #TheLittleMermaid . Two episodes were shot, but never aired: "Sebastian's Birthday" and "Tell the Truth". It was intended as a daily series to air on #DisneyChannel , with #puppets against blue screen and human characters interacting. In the show, #Ariel was portrayed Marietta Deprima, playing opposite puppet versions of #Sebastian the crab, #Scuttle the seagull, #Flotsam and #Jetsam , and #Flounder the fish, as well as a new character, Flounder's twin sister, Sandy. The other live cast member was character actor Clive Revill as a variation of Grimsby from the original film, here re-conceived as a jovial sea captain who lived on an island nearby to Ariel. The puppet used for #Ambrosius in #Labyrinth was recycled as Max the sheepdog. There was also a full body puppet called Scales the Dragon, a musical dragon who lived in a cave and created songs with his rock piano and pots and pans
