For Mermay, we have Marina from the French animated series Zig and Sharko who has discovered a mine. Much to her displeasure.
Marina - a mermaid, who is good-natured but quite naïve. She maintains a positive relationship with everyone, including Zig despite being unaware of his intentions and thus not being afraid of him. She is often portrayed as wearing a small sea star as a decoration in her hair, possessing a smatphone, and capable of walking on land by using the flippers on her tail as feet. She is often intrigued and interested in new things such as farming, skiing and other activities and hobbies, and often attempts them usually with Sharko offering to help arrange it. She often enjoys singing, though Sharko dislikes it.
Zig & Sharko is a French animated slapstick comedy television series created and directed by Olivier Jean-Marie and produced by Xilam Animation. It chronicles the conflict between Zig, a brown hyena, and Sharko, a great white shak, who live on a volcanic island. The conflict is fueled by Zig's constant attempts to eat the mermaid Marina, whom Sharko loves. The series employs silent comedy: characters either do not speak, or use unintelligible vocalizations, gestures, and occasional pictograms in speech balloons. (The Indian version dubs Hindi dialogue over the animation.) Three seasons with a total of 52 half-hour episodes (156 seven-minute segments) were originally broadcast from December 21, 2010 on Canal+. The series is available for steaming in the United States on Netflix (season 1 until September 2017, season 2 currently).
A third season was announced in December 2018, and later premiered on Boomerang Africa HD on 13 January 2020.
The series focuses on the exploits and adventures of a group of characters - Zig, a brown hyena; Sharko, a great white shark; Marina, a mermaid with red hair; and Bernie, a hermit crab. Much of the stories of each episode revolve around an eternal war over Marina between Zig, who attempts to capture her in order to eat her, and Sharko, who loves her and acts as her bodyguard against Zig's various plans. The show itself draws inspiration for its plot and slap-stick humor from the cartoons of Wile E, Coyote and the Road Runner, in that Zig often makes use of various items or concocts plans based on things he witnesses with Sharko and Marina, but is often foiled by the former, bad luck, or a combination of both, that often results in him receiving grievous bodily injury. Alongside the main characters, the show is frequently populated by minor background characters, many of whom are animals and aquatic creatures that, alongside Zig and Sharko, are portrayed as anthropomorphic beings.Through Zig and Sharko are real enemies but they are one of the best friend and Sharko can't live without Zig and Zig can't live without sharko and it showed in the episode lost in the jungle.
