Summary
Things seem to be going swimmingly for Mr. Peabody, then one day his life takes a whimsical turn. While fishing, he snags a beautiful mermaid. In a flight of youthful fancy, the stodgy Bostonian falls for the mermaid and takes her to a pond at his villa. The seemingly harmless crush creates all sorts of comical mix-ups! When Mr. Peabody's jealous wife's car is found abandoned, the discovery leads the police to believe he bumped off his own wife!
