The Little Mermaid is my long time favorite Disney movie and it was also responsible for the Disney Renaissance. Based on the story of the same name by Han Cristian Andersen, instead of the dark and tragic elements from the original source material, that movie was colorful, adventurous and memorable. The characters are interesting, my personal favorites are Ariel, Eric and Sebastian. Ariel is the most interesting character all, not just in the movie but all of the Disney Princess lineup as well. Cause she's curious, fearless and also she saved her prince... Twice ! Also, I found her funny when she's brushing her hair with a fork and the scene where she saw her new human legs is one of the most memorable scenes of all. Eric, despite he's a bit of naive, but he's kind, brave and a great sailor. That's why I found them as one of my favorite couples of all Disney movies. Sebastian, he's like the crab version of Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio, I like his jamaican accent and also I found him funny, especially his battle with the chef. The songs are fantastic: Part of your World is beautiful, Poor Unfortunate Soul is good, Kiss the Girl is lovely, but my favorite song will always be Under the Sea, cause it was catchy and I can't get it out from my head, especially with it's parody version from The Simpsons. The Animation is amazing and it was the last movie used the traditional ink and paint before they use the CAPS technique on The Rescuers Down Under and the rest of the movies during that era. In conclusion, The Little Mermaid is a beautiful movie and the only one that changed the history of both animation and cinema.
