'Finding Nemo'

Fantastic animation and beautiful underwater scenes featuring the clownfish Nemo in the Great Barrier Reef of Australia will hook children of all ages. After Nemo is captured and placed in a dentist's aquarium, he learns that "all drains lead to the ocean," and plots a daring escape to return home. "Finding Nemo" unfortunately had an unintentional result: remorseful aquarium owners, inspired by Nemo's plight, released their pet fish into the ocean!
