When Walt Disney Pictures revived its full-length animated films, "The Little Mermaid" was its first project. Shown in 1989, I've watched this masterpiece of animation several times. I think I almost worn out its disc. :)
The penis on the original cover of the VHS release of "The Little Mermaid" was unintentional. According to the artist that drew it he was just in a hurry to finish and was neither disgruntled nor on the verge of being fired
Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale – The Little Mermaid is essentially a very dark Romantic tale. Carolyn Turgeon's novel, unlike the Disney film, is more faithful to Hans Christian Andersen's original story.
Directed by Ron Clements, John Musker. With Jodi Benson, Rene Auberjonois, Christopher Daniel Barnes, Pat Carroll. A mermaid princess makes a Faustian bargain with an unscrupulous sea-witch in order to meet a human prince on land.
