Our story begins on a foggy day out on the Atlantic Ocean. Behind the fog, one can almost see several flying seagulls and a few porpoises and dolphins swimming in and out of the deep sea merrily without care. The next thing emerging from the mist is a large ship. On this ship, the sailor crew is singing a song as they work:
I'll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue
And it's hey to the starboard, heave ho
Look out, lad, a mermaid be waitin' for you
In mysterious fathoms below.
Leaning against the ship's railing, there is a young man with short blond hair, big ears, brown eyes and freckles to match, wearing a dark-red open-collared shirt with navy blue cuffs rolled up to his elbows and khaki pants over black boots. His name is Prince Ronald Stoppable of a kingdom near by the sea.
Standing on his right shoulder, there is a small pink, naked mole rat with a pair of buck teeth, whiskers, and a long hairless tail. The rat is Ron's pet and best friend named Rufus.
Unlike most princes he knew of, like Prince Wally,who would never go out on a boat unless it had a luxury cabin equipped for royal treatment, Ron almost always came along whenever the sailors went out to sea. He loved the exhilarating feeling he got whenever he went out sailing.
"Boo-yah! Isn't this awesome?! The salty sea air, the wind blowing in your face…a badical day for sailing!" Ron exclaimed.
He turned to his advisor, Steve Barkin, who was also his temporary guardian while his parents were away on business trip to another kingdom.
Unfortunately, a green-faced Barkin was preoccupied with the matter of losing his lunch over the ship's railing. When he momentarily stopped, he faced the prince and growled "Oh yes, Stoppable…just peachy!" in a sarcastic tone and then resumed to his prior business.
A Japanese sailor named Hirotaka stated "The wind is strong and the sea is calm. King Possible must be in a relaxed mood today."
Upon hearing the name "King Possible," a confused Ron and Rufus looked at each other and then back at Hirotaka. "Uh…who's King Possible? I've never heard of him," Ron asked.
A short, tempermental Scottish sailor named Duff Killigan overheard Ron's question. He answered, "Ack, lad, he's the ruler of the merpeople an' all the oceans. Every one who sails the seas knows about him."
Ron begins to imagine about the merpeople and how cool it would be to meet one, but Barkin's voice brought him back to reality. "Oh give me a break! Merpeople?! Stoppable, don't pay attention to this guy, after all, the man's wearing a skirt!"
"For the last time, it's a kilt! Not a skirt, you blarney-faced buffoon!" exclaimed an outraged Killigan. To get his point across, he grabbed a fish from a net full of squirming, freshly caught fish and pointed it at Barkin. "I'm tellin' the truth, the merpeople live in the ocean deep."
Then, the fish slipped out of Killigan's hand, tail-slapped Barkin's startled face a few times, and then jumped back in the water. Feeling relieved to be back in its element, the fish gives a sigh and finally swims away.
Various species of fish are also seen swimming through the ocean. However, we now see a different kind of fish swimming, particularly the half human-half fish type, the merpeople! Mermaids and mermen of all ages and sizes are swimming towards a humongous palace where their ruler, King Possiblem, ruled the kingdom of Middlantica.
Today was a special day because a concert was given in honor of the king and his cherished and only daughter. The merpeople began to congregate in the concert hall inside the palace, eagerly waiting for the concert to begin.
A row of seahorses with trumpet-like noses played a fanfare to begin the festivities. Then, a small, tan-colored seahorse, who wore a stoic facial expression, named Will Du began to speak.
"Ahem…Their royal majesties, King and Queen Possible!"
Following Du's announcement, James Possible and his wife, Ann Possible arrive at the concert hall in a seashell chariot being pulled by dolphins. James Possible is well-aged with cropped grey hair with a thin white hair line across the back of his head, thick grey eyebrows, and a dark blue tail. Ann Possible is a slender, beautiful mermaid with short, orange hair, blue eyes, wearing a white shell bikini top over a light purple tail. Both highnesses wear golden crowns to signal their status as royalty. While the crowd clapped for their monarchs, James pulls out his golden trident and uses the trident to fire towards the ceilings to create sparkly fireworks. After his display, the crowd clapped even more wildly which prompted James to puff up in a boastful posture. An amused Ann looks at him all the while thinking 'What a showoff!'
Will continues his announcement, this time reading off a notecard.
"And presenting the most brilliant, awesome, and the coolest royal composers…give your hands and fins up for Jim and Tim Possible!"
The King and Queen's identical twin sons, James and Timothy aka Jim and Tim entered the concert hall each driving a mini-version of their parents' chariot. Both boys have spiky brown hair and blue-eyes, but the main difference between Jim and Tim is their tail color, Jim with a green tail and Tim, a red tail. Despite the audience's mediocre applause, the twins were still excited about directing their first musical performance. Not only were the twins scientific geniuses, they were also music prodigies. The twins and their parents got off their chariots and swam to the balcony where a couple of box seats are reserved for the king and queen.
As the royal couple sat down, Queen Possible told his sons, "Boys, your father and I are really looking forward to your performance. You two have worked almost as hard on your compositions as you do on your experiments."
Jim responded, "This will be the best concert —
"--this kingdom has ever had! We even picked the best singers in the kingdom to make this concert a hit!" finished Tim. Being twins, the boys often finished each other's sentences, spoke at the same time, and had their own secret language.
"Yes, but I am especially looking forward to hearing my little Kimmie-cub sing!
"You won't be disappointed, Dad. Kim has the best singing voice in the whole kingdom," said Tim, but then whispered to Jim, "Even though she always ditches us off whenever we have rehearsals" to which his brother nodded in agreement.
"What was that, boys?" inquired King Possible.
The twins sheepishly looked at their parents, then stated simultaneously "Uh, gotta go!" and swam quickly to the conductors' podium to begin the concert.
The twins tapped their batons on the podium to quiet the audience and signaled the musicians, a group of assorted sea creatures, to begin playing. As the musicians began playing the first notes to the opening song, the curtains above the stage parted and revealed 3 giant clams. The clams opened up to show 6 mermaids who began to sing:
All: Oh, we are the daughters of Middlantica.
Whose king and queen do rule it well:
Bonnie: La, la, la, la, la, la
Britina: La, la, la, la, la, la
Justine: La, la, la, la, la, la
Joss: La, la, la, la, la, la
Tara: La, la, la, la, la, la
Zita: La, la, la, la, la, la
All: And now here is the girl in her first musical debut
The pearl of Middlantica, we're presenting her to you,
To sing a song her brothers wrote, her voice has so much vim,
She's the princess, Kii-imm!
The third clam opened up, but to the audience, the twins and their parents,' and the singers' shock, with the exception of Bonnie, who hated Kim's guts and was glad to see her get busted for once, the Princess was not in the clam.
"Uh oh!," Jim and Tim muttered as they nervously looked at their parents to see their reactions. Although the queen was more concerned than upset about Kim's absence, the king looked positively furious. Then, the king gave a mighty yell that shook the entire concert hall:
KIMBERLY ANN POSSIBLE!!
Miles away from the concert hall, a teenage mermaid swam up to a deserted, sunken ship at the bottom of the ocean floor. The mermaid was the Princess Kimberly Ann Possible or Kim as most called her. She had full orange hair and green eyes, both of which she inherited from her mother. She was wearing a green shell bikini top, courtesy of "Club Starfish," the kingdom's most popular retail store for young mermaids, to compliment her blue tail. She was also holding a pink sack that was often used for her many scavenging excursions.
Before she was about to swim inside the ship, she heard two urgent voices from a distance calling out to her:
"Wait for us, Kim!
"We're right behind you!
She recognized the first voice belonging to her best friend, Wade Load, a brown, blue-striped flounder named Wade Load.
The second voice belonged to her other best friend, an African-American mermaid named StarReader86 or Star to her friends. She had black hair in tight corkscrew curls all over her head, mocha brown skin, and dark brown eyes. Her signature look included a pink shelled bikini top above her purple tail, a light blue star-shaped necklace and a pair of shimmering star earrings to match.
"Wade, Star, hurry up!" Kim responded to her friend. After a full 10 minutes, Wade and Star caught up to Kim while panting and sweating, if that's possible underwater.
"Kim (pant) you know flounders do not have the biological (wheeze) mechanisms to swim real fast," said Wade who continued to breathe heavily.
"Well, maybe if you two didn't eat so much at Buenas Algas, you wouldn't be too full to swim," Kim retorted.
"Sorry, Kim. But that 5 seaweed wraps for 5 clams was too good a deal to pass up! And don't even get me started on their delicious chocolate algae ice cream!" said Star.
"Oh you guys, ha ha!" Kim laughed. Her friends never failed to amuse her. "Hey, check that out. Amazing isn't it?" Kim directed her friends' attention towards the sunken ship.
"No offense, Kim, but what's so amazing about it? It's a broken-down ship or what's left of it," Star dryly pointed out.
"Yeah and besides, we need to be really careful. There have been several reports of activity in this area by that shark Gill and I don't want to be his next meal!" said Wade as he nervously looked around.
"Oh come on guys! Where's your sense of adventure? Don't you want to see if there's any treasure down there?" Seeing that neither of her friends looked too convinced, Kim then decided to appeal to their interests.
"Who knows what we might find? There might be some old clothes, paintings, cannon balls…and maybe some jewelry… Kim whispered, knowing that the last three items might get her friends' attention.
Sure enough, Star's eyes lit up at the mention of 'jewelry' since it was her favorite item of fashion. "Well, what are we waiting for?! Let's go exploring!"
Wade, however, was still unconvinced. Despite, his reluctance to enter the ship, he didn't want the girls to think he was a wimp, so he pretended to be sick.
"Cough…cough, you girls go on without me, I think I'm coming down with…um… uh…cough-alotitis. Yeah that's it! Cough-alotitis… cough!"
Both Kim and Star looked at each other with a shared "Oh please" kind of look; from their experiences, they knew exactly what 'act' to put on to get out of doing chores, to avoid annoying friends and family members, etc. Not only that, they knew exactly what to say to 'persuade' people to do their bidding without being too obvious.
"It's no big, Wade. Star and I will look around the ship and you can just wait for us outside. Maybe we'll find something to cure your 'disease.'" Then Kim, followed by Star, swam inside one of the ship's portholes.
Before going through the porthole, Star paused and turned towards Wade with a sweet smile. "Yeah, Wade, all you have to do is just wait outside, chill out here until we get back…and also watch out for Gill" Star finished that last sentence with a mischievous grin on her face. She then swam inside the porthole with a satisfied feeling of knowing that Wade would catch up with them pretty soon.
"Yeah, that's sounds like a good plan. I'll just stay out here, all alone, by my defenseless self, and keep a sharp lookout for Gill." Wade floated on his back thinking that all was good, until his words began to register in his brain.
'Wait a minute! Alone…defenseless…GILL!' With a fearful expression, he screamed out, "Kim! Star! Wait for me!" In his frantic state, Wade quickly swam towards the porthole, but he soon became stuck. "Girls? Girls! Help! I'm stuck!"
Kim and Star turned around and couldn't help but giggle at Wade's misfortune as they swam towards the porthole. "Do you girls really think Gill might be around here?" asked Wade. Ironically, while Wade was asking this question, the shark known as Gill is seen swimming close by the ship.
"So not the drama, Wade! I'm sure he's not even around here."
"Yeah, I only mentioned "Gill" because I knew you would freak out. You are such a scaredy-catfish, Wade!" Star jokingly teased Wade.
"I'm NOT a scaredy-catfish! Now back to my current uncomfortable position," Wade grimaced as he tried to push himself out of the small porthole.
"Okay, on three. Ready? One…Two…Three!" Kim signaled as she pulled on Wade while Star pulled on Kim. On "Three," the flounder popped out from the porthole like a cork from a pressurized wine bottle.
Wade looked around the ship's interior. "Hey this isn't so bad. And here I thought that danger would be lurking around every corner…," Wade went on to say but was cut short by a close-up view of a human skull resting in a, you guessed it, corner.
"YAAAHHHH!! Kim!!" Wade swam rapidly towards Kim and Star, but did not stop in time, resulting in all 3 characters getting knocked down and rolling towards and crashing against a wall as seen in most cartoon gags.
When they stopped, Kim looked down at her fish friend shivering in her arms. With a concerned look on her face, Kim asked Wade "Are you okay?"
"Yeah, I'm fine. No big!"
"Hey, that's one of my signature catchphrases, Wade!"
"Don't look at me! Tell that to the author of this story!"
Said author did not recover as quickly from the crash as her friends. With her eyes rolling around in opposite directions and a goofy grin, she mumbled "I'll take Disney Classics for 500, Alex!" Then, Star shook her head, smacked her forehead a few times, and realized that she was back with her friends in the sunken ship.
Meanwhile, Kim spotted a fork on a nearby wooden table. "Hey, guys! Look what I found! Have you ever seen anything so cool in your whole life?"
Wade responded, "Wow, cool! But…uh...what exactly is it?"
Star, who by now was able to catch up with her friends, looked at the object initially with glee but then looked disappointed once she realized that it wasn't a piece of jewelry.
"Hmmph! Well its not expensive jewelry, I'll tell you that much!" muttered Star.
"I'm not sure, Wade. But I bet Monique can tell us."
Kim dropped the fork in her bag and spotted another item, this time it was a pipe.
Suddenly, Gill is swimming closer and closer outside the ship at which the theme music from JAWS begins to play.
Wade began to get nervous, again, and asked "Uh guys, do you hear that? Kim? Star?"
Kim was too preoccupied with examining the pipe to hear Wade while Star held a cool expression despite the fact that she heard the music too which began to play louder.
"Oh relax, Wade! I bet my brother's X-box that this ominous music isn't a sign that something bad is going to happen," stated a confident Star.
No sooner did she say that, Wade looked behind him and saw a slime-covered green shark with blood-red eyes swimming towards him. Instantly, Wade recognized him as the notorious Gill.
"AAHHHH!! Let's get outta here!! We're all gonna die!! Oh and you owe me an X-box, Star!!
Star and Kim spotted Wade swim past them and immediately began to follow pursuit, with Gill chasing the trio around the ship. In the middle of the chase, Kim's bag gets stuck on a piece of wood jutting out from the ship's floor. Despite her friends' frantic cries for her to just leave the darn thing and get the heck out of there, Kim goes back and gets the bag but narrowly escapes Gill's snapping jaws.
All three began to beat their fins towards the porthole from which they used as an entrance. But once again, Wade gets stuck in the porthole and the two mermaids push him out of the hole. Once Wade was free, Kim and Star leave the hole just in time before Gill crashed through it, completely taking out half of the ship's wall.
Gill continues to chase the three friends around the ship's chained anchor in a spiral. In the middle of the chase, Wade hits a part of the anchor, knocking himself silly. Before Gill is able to swallow up the unconscious flounder with an outstretched mouth, Kim grabs Wade and leads the shark through one of the anchor's links. Fortunately, the link is big enough to trap Gill and prevents him from pursuing his victims.
As Kim and Wade, who has regained consciousness swim up to the surface, Star scornfully looks at Gill.
"Ha! Serves you right, you ugly, mutated bully!"
She then commences to slapping Gill's face with her tail. But Gill has the last laugh when he snaps his jaws at the mermaid.
With widened-eyes and a terrified expression, the petrified Star screams "Eep! Run awwwaayy!! She swims away like her tail was on fire.
When she catches up to her friends, Wade smirks at her and says, "Now, who's the scaredy-cat fish?" in a voice mocking Star's tone.
"Oh, bite me, Wade."
