Hot Down Under the Collar

November 27, 1994

N.F. Mendoza in her "Ocean Girl" article (TV Times, Oct. 16) quotes Disney programmers as saying that this Australian show, with its Australian locales and Australian sensibilities is not harmed too much by the "heavy Australian accents" of its Australian actors. Americans were very much involved in its production--so we're safe. After all, it would be downright seditious to see a different corner of the world the way the locals see it--they might not think exactly the same way we do. We might have to listen hard to understand--and what's really scary is that we might learn something new. No wonder everyone else in the world thinks Americans are ugly; we are. I give you "Baywatch"--take it, please.
