Thora Meermädchen - Gillian Johnson, Gerda Bean A half-mermaid Pippi Longstocking story (Mom the Mermaid is permanently away acing the Olympics and other competions - undetected, b.t.w. - instead of Captain Ephraim sailing the Oceans, while unafraid and inconventional Thora wreaks havock in a smallish, sleepy coast-town, collecting friends and solving crimes on the the way). Fun.
