Lobster Mobster and Da Shrimp are recurring antagonists from The Little Mermaid television series. They are bumbling con-artists and constantly antagonize Ariel and her friends. They are modeled after 1920s gangster stereotypes. Lobster Mobster was voiced by Joe Alaskey while Da Shrimp was voiced by David Lander.

Their first appearance was the episode, "Urchin." Here they meet an orphaned mer-boy named Urchin and swindle him into working for them posing themselves as something he desires: friends. Eventually, he meets Ariel who convinces him that Lobster Mobster and his sidekick are not his allies and are just using him.

Later, they appeared in "Double Bubble," where they kidnapped a troublesome pair of baby mertwins that Ariel babysat to gain their mother's pearl necklace.

The duo also appeared in the episode, "Thingamajigger."
