"Under the Water" is a parody of "Under the Sea", a song written by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken for the Disney animated feature The Little Mermaid.

In the Dinosaurs episode "Honey, I Miss the Kids", Baby Sinclair watches Little Underwater Girl on TV. A trio of lobsters sing "Under the Water": "Under the water / Under the water / Every son and daughter really oughta / Live under the water."
