Billy Ocean is the first segment of the fifty third episode of The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy.

Plot

After Billy is swallowed by a whale, he discovers that Pinocchio and his creator, Geppetto, are living inside the whale. Geppetto immediately takes a liking to Billy and decides to adopt him as his second son.

Pinocchio becomes jealous and repeatedly tries to eat his flesh like he had done earlier, but Geppetto scolds him saying that he no longer considers him his son after he tried to eat Billy.

Pinocchio later encounters the Blue Fairy who in the original tale brought him to life to give him advice but seeing as he is bent on revenge decides to let him deal with it.

Pinocchio later asks Geppetto if he still cares about him. Geppetto replies that he does, but he likes Billy better. Later on he kidnaps Billy, ties him to a pole, and lights a fire around him in an attempt to kill him.

Geppetto scolds Pinocchio again but the fire causes the whale to vomit them out, after escaping from the whale, Pinocchio decides to leave Geppetto and encounters Captain Deadwood, a pirate captain who is entirely made of wood. After the whale eats his body parts it appears that he is going to adopt him, but they go their separate ways.

Billy tells Geppetto that he can't be his son because he has a real dad back at home, leaving him lonely. The whale tells Geppetto he could be his son and he climbs into the whale's mouth and they swim away.

Trivia

"Remember Me?"

  • Cod Commando makes a cameo appearance in this episode in the underwater musical segment where he can be seen holding a sign saying "Remember Me?", a likely reference to the cancellation of Evil Con Carne.
  • This episode makes references to 2 Disney films; The Little Mermaid and Pinocchio.
    • Conveniently, Jodi Benson, who voices the titular character of the first film (and its follow-ups) lends her talent in this episode as the Blue Fairy, a spoof of the character from the second.
  • The episode's name is a reference to the singer of the same name.
  • This was the first episode to be broadcasted in 2006.
