On the high seas, the beach or an ocean liner, Zig, a hungry hyena, has one thing in mind: dining on Marina, the carefree mermaid. With help from Bernie, a genius hermit-crab, he comes up with the zaniest plans to capture her…but that’s forgetting Sharko, the shark with rippling muscles who will do anything to protect his mermaid honey!
Plot and slapstick adventures are reminiscent of the best of Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, in that Zig concocts crazy plans to capture and eat Marina, always foiled by Sharko, usually resulting in humorous bodily injury to Zig. Fun and wacky in spirit, the series also delivers great environmental awareness and sustainability values.
