Goliath, just pointing out those things about you, including calling out poor Super Aurora when you did the same thing, except worse.


Poor me? He didn't understand at the time that I was making a joke. I didn't even feel slightest offended(it's very hard to offend me btw)

Of course I knew you were joking (I know your kind of humor by now), but still found it somewhat troubling. But the best kind of comedy has been perceived as 'troubling' by large groups of people. :wink:

You found your own, same kind of behavior troubling? Indeed, I do too.

Divinity, so do you mean that Ursula considers Ariel without her voice to be a worm? I can understand that coming from Broadway's Ursula, but I don't feel it in the film...maybe. If Ariel kissed Eric, she would live happily, voicelessly ever after.

I do wonder, would Ariel get her voice back though is she became a mermaid again? Only to then become a weird-sounding worm? I don't think so.

There was some debate on another forum that the "Kiss the Girl" song may reveal Ariel would get her voice back if she was kissed, though. I think that it was the lyrics "she don't say a word, and she won't say a word until you kiss the girl". But I'm pretty sure that was just metaphor for how she would "speak" to him if he kissed and loved her, or just saying anything so that he will kiss her! "Yes, you want her", and such!

I think it's sad, Duster, how you have taken my analysis of the film and its main character and have turned it into something vulgar and insulting. But that does say more about you than it does about me, since it was you who came up with that relation, not me.

Hi, wanted to share something nice I noticed about TLM. Did you guys notice how many things happen TWICE in the film?


there are two storms at sea

Eric lies unconscious on the beach twice

Ariel sits on a rock watching Eric (part of your world reprise and after the climax)

Ariel is turned into a human twice

There are 2 weddings (Eric and Vanessa, Eric and Ariel)

Eric watches Ariel from the balcony at night, twice

Ariel and Eric ALMOST kiss twice (kiss the girl and when the sun sets)

Ariel and Eric kiss twice (when she's in the purple dress and in the final shot)


lol... felt like sharing :)

There was, shall we say, a "weiner" on the cover.

The video wasn't really banned. The artwork was just altered on later copies.


You think that's bad... I was a little girl and someone told me about the cover of my VHS tape. When I went home I looked at my comforter and it was on there, too! Pervs.

it's kind of funny now

Oh and don't forget the erection in the film. Look, I'm sorry. This thread is like 12 pages long so this may have already been addressed.

But overall, I really like the film. It was one of my favorites.

That "What....?" animation above is perfect for how I feel about the time I was 4 or 5 and licked all over this big Ariel poster my mom made for me with posterboard and magic markers.

I want Mr. Keane to teach me how to draw the gurl's purty hair like he does. I have been revisiting this film just to see how much Ariel's hair bounces around in both the water and on land. It's almost like it's own sub-character! :o

As for the movie, I'm recalling how much I loved it when I first saw it back in 1990. It might've been the music that got me so hooked; I did rewind the video endlessly during the "Under the Sea" number. "Poor Unfortunate Souls" came to mind 14 years later when I was dealing with the notion that Disney's hand-drawn features might be extinct.

Another part that my brother and I used to rewind to, and stupidly act out was Sebastian's escape from Chef Louis's kitchen. Easily the funniest part of the whole movie. :D

There was also the climax, which at one time scared me more than any other thing in a Disney film. For weeks, I was scared of being in the dark alone, or that a tentacle would grab me from under my seldom-cleaned bed. :oops:

Of course, all of this means that The Little Mermaid was a kick-ass film from every angle, and that the gamble spent on Disney's first fairy tale in 30 years really paid off.

I disagree. I think that Ariel's face looks decidedly funny and off-model in lots of shots from The Little Mermaid.

I think the animation on the latest Disney films has been no worse than The Little Mermaid. In fact, I think it is better.


I agree, the animation (on Ariel in particular) isn't very consistent, she looks different in almost every shot. Very annoying.


Yes, that is true. I remember trying to draw her and getting frustrated because she can be so different depending on the screen shot.

Yay to being back in the cinema's in the US !

It's just a shame that it isn't a bigger cinema chain which has a wider, geographic reach than London, as some of us more northern fans would like to see at least some of the films on the big screen.

Oh well, I'm still holding out for a cinema release of Beauty and the Beast in 3D.

I guess so, but at least some celebration of Disney is happening, rather than ignoring the 50 Disney Animated movies, and celebrating them.

You still have Tangled to see !! :D
