A Creep in the Deep

Episode #33: A Creep in the Deep

Rating: ****

AD: 11/13/89
D: John Kimball, Bob Zamboni
SEd: Bryce Malek
W: Mark Edens
RSC: Stan Blather
Voices: Corey Burton -- All Hands
Frank Buxton -- Mr. Starfish, fisherman
Peter Cullen -- Monterey Jack, truck driver, Nemo
Jim Cummings -- Barnacle Bill
Tress MacNeille -- teenage girl
Rob Paulsen -- pizza teen, Captain Finn


One of the best episodes in which a lot of related themes are juggled without dropping a single dish -- everything seems to flow together smoothly.  Captain Finn's fish-lib crusade, indignities happening to Monty's tail (until he finally snaps), Monty pooh-poohing Chip's detective-oriented approach to solving crimes and preaching action instead.  Some real detection involved.

View of original theme of series: "helping animals in distress" (frozen fish, Nemo).

Captain Finn genteelly obsessed (doesn't really pop out till the attempt to ram the dam) -- a voice parody of James Mason in 20,000 Leagues.

"Barnacle Bill the barnacle" -- voice parody of Andy Devine (Also cf. Cummings' voice as a Toon bullet in Roger Rabbit, Darkwing Duck's Herb Muddlefoot).

[Barnacle Bill was also the name of one of Popeye's old sailor pals (from the original strip), but it's so obscure it's hard to say if this was intentional or not. -- MP]
