* SubvertedRhymeEveryOccasion: The "Daughters of Triton" song.. It's a concert Sebastian has created with all of Triton's daughters and is supposed to be the grand debut of Triton's youngest daughter, the lead character of the film, the Little Mermaid we know as Ariel.
-->'''Six Daughters''': ''And then there is the youngest in her musical debut / Our seventh little sister, we're presenting her to you / To sing a song Sebastian wrote, her voice is like a bell / She's our sister, Ari...'' (''gasps of shock and surprise at Ariel's absence'')
-->'''King Triton''': '''''Ariel!!!'''''

A [[ThreeDMovie Disney Digital 3-D]] re-release was slated for September 2013, however, it has been canceled. That release instead became a 3-D UsefulNotes/BluRay disc for the ''[[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo Diamond Edition]]'' release of the film; it and ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' are the last two Disney Animated Classics to have 3-D Blu-rays.
