Kids cartoon Super Why! is an educational show that emphasizes reading and spelling, along with lessons for the young. Each episodes features a problem that the show's four main characters have to solve, which they do by jumping into books of famous fairytales and stories in order to find insight.
The Little Mermaid gets an episode, though like most fairytales and stories used in the show, it's been stripped down to very basics for the sake of the lesson of the episode. In this case, what matters is the little mermaid doesn't like feeling different because she wants to play with the other kids on land. But with the Super Readers's help, she accepts herself as she is and is proud of being a mermaid.
Thanks to Shira for letting me know about this episode!
