The Tale of a Tail is a mermaid (and merman) show posted on the channel of the same name, which has ended in its seventh season.


It's the first day of summer, and a boy named Andy decides to go on a swim. He finds his way into a magical cave in time for a lunar event, then wakes up. When he dives into a nearby pool, he pops a tail. His friend, Jordan, returns from camp and accidentally discovers his secret, but pops a tail of her own the very next morning.

Episodes 6-2 were uploaded on the 13th and 14th in reverse order, for unknown reasons.

In the second week of October, two weeks after the conclusion of the fifth season, the creators posted a video explaining the delay--technical issues, preparations for a stunt, and so on. A new episode was promised within the next week. In mid-2016 the series was cancelled.
