Sea Princesses (known as Princesas Do Mar in Brazil and Ojo no Umi In Japan) is a chidren's animated series that debuted in 2007, based on a series of books created by the Brazilian writer and cartoonist Fabio Yabu. The series was produced by the Spanish studio Neptuno Films and the Australian distributor Southern Star Entertainment.
The series plot takes place in the underwater world of Salacia, home of numerous kingdoms named after sea creatures. Three princess girls, the show's protagonists, live, go to school and play together as friends: Polvina, the Octopus Kingdom princess; Tubarina, the Shark Kingdom princess and Ester, the Starfish Kingdom princess.
Sea Princesses contains examples of:
- Bare Your Midriff : Just about every single princess uses this, and some of the princes as well.
- Curtains Match The Windows: Just about all of the characters have hair and eyes of the same colour. And some of the characters have pink hair...
- Everything's Better with Princesses: The main characters are all from royal families that rule over different species of marine life. This leads to a lot of royalty crammed into a small area.
- Royal School: Averts most of the usual attributes associated with thi trope. While everyone attending the school is royalty, the school is co-ed, and is not devoted to teaching children how to be princes and princesses, Rather it seems to teach a normal curriculum (or, at least, normal for an undersea school).
- Under the Sea: The stories are in the world of Salacia, a hidden kingdom under the sea, full of princes and princesses from different animal species.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: The hair of the main characters comes in a wide variety of colours, including blue and pink. Goes hand in hand with Curtains Match The Windows.
