But after the Army rejects him as unfit for military duty, he falls off a pier in Coney Island and discovers a magical undersea world when he becomes The Incredible Mr. Limpet. Henry Limpet (Knotts) amazingly learns he can breathe underwater and swim with the dolphins. He discovers love, the life he has always dreamed of and becomes a hero when he leads the Navy to a Nazi u-boat in this part-live action, part-animated family film.

I found Don Knotts pretty annoying for the most part.

I am a huge Don Knotts fan. Can't beat the classics.

This is a classic Don Knotts. As a child I was amazed with the story. As an adult I realized that there was a much larger story at work here. It is originally from the 1960's, but well worth the watch. I was delighted to find it in our library. EPL is the best!
