In the episode "The Deep South," the Planet Express crew goes fishing on their day off. Bender catches huge fish and ends up sinking the whole ship. The crew experiences their version of the lost city of Atlantis myth by landing in Atlanta, an old U.S. city that now exists at the bottom of the ocean and is populated by mermen and mermaids. The '60s folk-rock star Donovan sings a reworking of his pop song "Atlantis." Fry falls in love with the mermaid Umbriel (voice of Parker Posey), which is a reference to Ariel from The Little Mermaid, as both Ariel and Umbriel are satellites of Uranus.
