This children's fantasy tells the story of a 12-year-old boy who discovers a complex underwater world where young children are held prisoner by an evil shark and an eel.
The movie's plot is summarized in a title card during the opening credits which state that the film is "A Story of a Little Chimney Sweep in the year 1850".
Where's this then Mr. Grimes?
Mr. Grimes: "Where's this then?" China! Where does tha think? Yorkshire! Can't tha see it's Yorkshire?
Tom: I know it's Yorkshire, Mr. Grimes!
Mr. Grimes: Well then.
Tom: I never seen it clean before.
Mr. Grimes: We're in the country!
Tom: Oh, is that what they call it?...
When Tom and the lobster are singing "High Cockalorum" for the first time, Tom's mouth is opening and closing when he is not actually saying anything. Likewise, his mouth is shut when he is saying something.
To start the closing credits, the movie's last live-action shot freezes into a illustration, turns into the same color scheme as the opening credits and the border frame fades in.
