I found the movie Operation Mermaid (1963) Director:John Ainsworth Cast: Keenan Wynn; Mai Zetterling; Ronald Howard 73 min. a.k.a. Curse of San Michel; Pattern For Plunder;The Bay Of Saint Michel. And there was also the 1964 version Pattern For Plunder 90 min.

The movie is about some former Allied Commandos come back after WWII ends and search the Normandy Coast for Nazi Treasure. I was thinking that I shouldn't add either of these movies to the mermaid movie list since as far as I know they don't really have anything to do with mermaids the thing the 1963 movie Operation Mermaid has in common with mermaids is the word mermaid in the movie title.
This is turning out to be quite an extensive list about mermaids. I don't know how much more is out there about mermaids but I'll continue to add whatever I find to the list.

I guess I could also include the Boadway Play version of The Little Mermaid to this list as well even though I called this the List Of Mermaid Movies/TV Shows/Cartoons/Anime and didn't include Plays though if I include The Little Mermaid I guess I should also include all of the many different stage versions of Peter Pan too.

Though when I was originally trying to make up this list I didn't even think of counting any Broadway Plays like The Little Mermaid or Peter Pan or maybe that could even be a totally separate list from this one.

I'm totally blown away by the number of mermaid related movies I've found so far. When I first started doing the research to see how many different titles I would be able to find I never guessed it would be anywhere near this number. I guess there's still a ton of others I haven't discovered, yet.

When I first started this list originally I started with the ones I already knew of like Peter Pan, Hook, The Little Mermaid Trilogy, Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid, Splash, H20 Just Add Water, She Creature, the original 1955 version of She Creature among some others as well. Then I started finding a lot of titles that I've never heard of before. This has been a real learning experience for me finding all these different mermaid related titles and also a lot of fun in finding them too.

I vaguely remember an eighties/early nineties cartoon about a mermaid who could get legs by drinking a potion and lost those legs when she got wet. Does anyone remember the name of that cartoon?

Aug 8, 2010, 12:55pm Top

I have been trying for years to find a film featuring a Mermaid I saw when I was a child during the 80's. I think it's a fantasy movie when a guy walks along a beach and sees a Mermaid sitting on a rock combing her hair. She was topless and had big blonde hair and being a child it made a real impression on me. I would love to know what movie it was. It maybe an 80's movie or earlier, I don't think it was all about Mermaids, but I can't really remember anything else about it? Maybe someone here know it? Thanks

Nov 18, 2011, 9:39pm Top

here are a couple others...

~Pirates of the Caribbean 3(on Stranger Tides)

Nov 24, 2011, 6:55am Top

Help me out please. In the 90s there was this cartoon on Cartoon Network with mermaid Sirrena and there was this guy with a crossbow as a bracelet on his arm. The whole cartoon was kinda gloomy and had some distinct graphics. All I can remember is that this guy was in a boat somewhere underground, i think. Can anyone help me remember? It bugs me for 2 weeks now. Thank you.

How is Merlin (NBC) a mermaid show? I don't remember the Lady in the Lake having anything mermaid-related.

Edited: Dec 6, 2011, 3:21pm Top

That's a very good question & I'll tell you how it happened. Martin Short's character brings Sam Neill (Merlin) to Queen Mab's her secret underground hide away and they had to cross some kinda bridge and I did see some Mermaids swimming in the lake below. Because of that I thought I'd include it on the list. But to be honest, it's been a long time since I've actually seen the 1998 Merlin Mini-Series but I'm sure there is a scene in there with Mermaids. I know that there are Aqua Man Cartoons, however is a Merman and not a Mermaid. It wouldn't be from Sponge Bob Sqaure Pants, would it?? I know they had some Merman Cartoon episodes.
At least I think it could be Queen Mab's secret hide away. Because it has been awhile since I have watched my VHS copy of the Merlin Mini-Series.

hi not sure if anyone can help me but if this rings a bell please reply. watched a movie when i was quite young, it may have been a cartoon about a mermaid, similar storyline to the little mermaid i think, however the end the mermaid didnt stay human or mermaid and was turned into a clump of seaweed. depressing end to a childrens movie, the end credits had a scene of a clump of seaweed on the shoreline of the beach. i remember thinking, wow wheres the happy ending? lol. as the picture of the seaweed was real life vision im not sure if the rest of the movie was or if it was in cartoon form and it was just the last vision of seaweed as proper footage. if this sounds familiar to anyone and u know the name plz let me know, for years it always haunted me and cannot for the life of me remember the name lol. cheers x

umm found a mermaid movie like this? an animated film where humans fight oceanic creatures, a mermaid (with legs and gills) saves a human boy, and salty tears means that the person is lying, sorry foggy with it all

Nov 29, 2012, 7:36am Top

Hello. I'd like your help.
I search for the movie or maybe series that I've seen some years ago. I remember only a few things.
Something like there was a girl or a boy who was turning into a mermade (merman) and at the end of transformation she rided in a wheel-chair and in the end gone to the sea leaving her father.

Some people tell that it was "the thirteen years later" but it's not! I start thinking that it is my imagination combining some films together, but still my memory never failed me before, I already had the similar searches and everytime the thing realy existed.

If you have the slitest idea, please tell me. thank you.

Jun 26, 2013, 7:48pm Top

hey! i need help.. i remember the movie about mermaids and i can't remember yhe title all i do remember is that there's guy making a research in the sea or looking for a treasure(not sure) anyway he stumble upon a mermaid and that's it that's all i do remember and the last scene is one showing a kinda of island wheres there's a lot of mermaids..thanks in advance:)

Jun 28, 2013, 1:27pm Top

Soriori I'm Very Sorry that I didn't get around to answering you before now. But it seems to me he movie could be The Thirteenth Year when a boy turns thirteen years old he notices that he starting to grow scales on his body. Eventually he finds out that he's actually a merman and his real mother is a mermaid.


Jun 28, 2013, 1:37pm Top

lulunono it sounds like the movie could be She Creature a 2001 movie which was originally titled, Mermaid Chronicles Part 1: She Creature. Does this sound like it could be the movie you're talking about?? A travelling circus discovers that an old Sea Captain has a real mermaid in his house and there's a fight and they accidentally kill the old Sea Captain and take the mermaid with them. They want to discover the secret location of the island of mermaids, I had always hoped they'd make some sequels to the movie. I love the movie. I own it on DVD. Please let me know if this isn't the right movie you talking about


Dec 3, 2013, 4:51pm Top

Hello! I need your help to find a movie with a mermaid on it!
It was a cartoon movie where the main character had a mermaid friend. I can't remember what was he trying to achieve, but at one point his mermaid friend is hipnotized/mind controlled and tries to kill him with a knife!
Thank you very much!!!!

Dec 4, 2013, 12:48am Top

Hello fellow mermaid lovers! I need help remembering a live action movie (non animated) about a mermaid being hunted for her hair, which is made of gold. I think I saw the movie back in the 80s or early 90s. There were people(humans) trying to help her get away, and this movie was not filmed in water, but on land at least for part of the movie as strange as that would seem. I think she had legs possibly while on land, not sure . It's possible I saw this movie on the Disney Channel. Thanks!

Jan 31, 2014, 5:32pm Top

I've been searching for this movie that I saw when I was like 8 or 9 (I'm 12 now...). All I remember is that there were teenage girls who were all mermaids (it might have been just 2 or 3, I don't remember well) and they lived in or hung out in a water tower. Does anyone remember? It's not really old but not super recent either. The movie came out in like 2006-2010 range. Please help! I've been going crazy searching for it!!! Thank you!

P.S. I think I saw it on a kids network like Disney Channel or Nickelodeon (just in case it helps). Also, a lot of people say that it's aquamarine or h2o. After a lot of research, I figured out that it is none of those two movies.

Edited: Feb 5, 2014, 11:12am Top

If you could please help me, I'd be grateful. When I was very young, I watched this movie with mermaids in it. Sadly I can't remember the name of it, but I slightly remember a scene that I believe the mermaids crashed a police car into the water??? I don't know. I remember things about them being in a tank or something, and them crashing the car in the water. I think there were four or five girls that were tan???? But like I said, I don't completely know.

Karla510 The only movie I think about is Aquamarine. It's about this one mermaid and two teenage girls that help her "fall in love". In the movie, so the mermaid doesn't dry out they get her to a water tower and she stays there night after night. Maybe if you watched it, you might find that it is the movie you are looking for, and if not, no harm, no foul and just keep looking. :-)

I believe the anime is called " blue submarine no.6"
this anime takes place in a war between man-made Mer-people and humans ( There is a scene where a siren girl feels pity for a drowning human solder and saves him, she is later punished for her actions by having her ears mauled by the shark man) it use to come on tonami on Saturdays


I'm wondering if it's Dagon you are remembering?
its not a series, but an old move by h.p. Lovecraft


Thanks for the neat list!

One day comes a ship with a female alien and male alien wich is enclosed in a glass flask( her boss) they are trying to get over this planet, but when planets stays in a row this little mermaid gains power to crush aliens and force them search for another planet.

Here's 2 more I forgot to mention.

230. Marina - A Philippine TV series. Here’s a link to the Wikipedia article, with a recap of the whole story. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marina_(Philippine_TV_series)
It sounds good, up until a certain point (for me at least).

231. My Parents are Aliens, Episode 7x14 (Episode 86 overall) Tail of the Knitted Map This is a British sitcom about 2 shapeshifting aliens disguised as humans who adopt some human children. In this episode, the mother turns into a mermaid and after swimming through polluted waters has trouble changing back.

I wish I could share the pictures, but I'm looking for a mermaid cartoon or anime that I've never seen or heard of. It kinda drives me insane that I can't find anything, and all I have to go on are pictures I stumbled across. The three mermaids I saw in the photo have these hair colors: pink, blonde, and brown. A couple of them are wearing these helmets that look like they have wings on the side. There is also a sea horse in it. The only male character I saw a photo of had green hair. It looks different, and it got me curious. I was looking for images in hopes that one of the images would be labeled, but I can't even find an image anywhere else. I'll share a link to a Facebook page I stumbled onto them on. If I'm being honest, I only care about what show these photos are from.

Hey DylanZalrian, the cartoon you’re thinking about is:

232. Princess Gwenevere & the Jewel Riders.

Those pictures were from the episode Jewel of the Sea, where a merman (the guy with green hair) switches places with one of the riders by turning her into a mermaid so he can turn into a human. At the end all the riders turn into mermaids for some reason. I recognize that show because I used to watch it with my sister. It was a girly show, and while even back then I knew it was no Sailor Moon I thought it was okay. It was certainly better than some of the other stuff she watched (like Disney’s Little Mermaid show). I remember liking how it had an ongoing story arc which always kept me interested in a show as a kid, and I thought the guys who rode on giant wolves were cool.

And for everyone else, here are some other episodes of shows with mermaids that I forgot to mention.

233. Fantasy Island

234. Dragon Ball - Episode 14. A mermaid shows up briefly. It's not one of my favorite episodes but the part she's in is great.

235. Riptide - A live-action 80s detective show. I found this one thanks to Wikipedia. The episode is called “Catch of the Day”.

236. Rupert - A cartoon. A mermaid is in episode 10, Rupert’s Undersea Adventure. There’s also an episode with a young merman, but I can’t remember which one.

237. Marine Boy - An anime series with a mermaid who’s a recurring character.

238. Triton of the Sea - Another anime which features a mermaid character in it.

I was wondering if anyone could help me.

My mom said that she saw a japanese mermaid cartoon in the mid 1960's and I can't seem to find it at all. She described the mermaids as having dark(possibly black) tails with white squares on them, no scales, and sort of squarish fins at the end of the tail. She said they had black hair and the animation was flowy. It was not the little mermaid tale either, it was a japanese folklore type mermaid cartoon. She doesn't know if the movie was in color or not since at the time she had a black and white tv.

I've been trying to figure out what it was for a few years now and I still have no idea.
