** In Creator/GoldenFilms's 1992 {{Mockbuster}} film, Lena manages to win the heart of Prince Stefan, but doesn't seem to regain her voice, meaning she's a mute for the rest of her life. It is implied that if Ariel and Eric had gone through uninterrupted with True Love's Kiss while she was voiceless, she would have suffered the same fate.

*** It is possible the original post refers to one of the many, ''many'' interpretations of Greek myth where Poseidon raped Athena and then stole the children from her that he fathered. It ''must'' be pointed out that Athena being present in tie-in films means nothing to the 75% of the fandom that denies their very existence - this FridgeHorror entry works especially well if you believe that there is only one film in which Areal's mother is practically never mentioned.

* Ursula the Sea Witch angrily refers to Ariel as "the little tramp" because she almost got Prince Eric to kiss her, even though she can't speak. Well, Charlie Chaplin, the brilliant silent movie star, was most famous for his "Little Tramp" character, who of course was never heard speaking. DendariiDame
* Let's recap ''who'' knows about the human world except Ariel. There is Scuttle, there's Sebastian, and there's Triton. Oh, and Ursula, too. And their knowledge is, that's the fridge part, just connected to who they are. Scuttle is a creature of the surface, but flees any human, although he has seen some. He knows they aren't ''monsters'', and he knows what they look like, but since he never spoke to one, he doesn't know their language and they way of life. Sebastian as a crab went on the seashore, so he knows quite a bit about humans, as demonstrated in ''Under the sea'', and his smallish allows him to spy them. He knows about their way of life. On the contrary, he's too small to understand their personality, so here comes his opinion. Triton kows them as a fish can knows them: from under the sea, as this thing up there who holds the hook. Hence the "fish)eaters" category.

* Thinking about "Les Poisson" again, it's very possible that Chef Louis isn't as crazy as he appears--the whole song is shown from ''Sebastian's'' point of view, so it's likely that Louis is just preparing a meal they way a normal person would (and singing to himself, which many people do when they're doing something they enjoy) and Sebastian (being one of the animals he would cook) perceives it as something more horrific.

* Similarly, Ursula's craftiness and planning skills can easily be justified by the fact that she's an octopus--octopodes are among the most intelligent of all non-primate animals.

** Not if it's cold enough, and if she sunk all the way to the bottom of the sea, it might be. Alternately, it's magically made ice, so perhaps it doesn't melt like regular ice?


Added DiffLines:

** It probably would rip them in half, assuming it starts at the groin (like when she lost her tail). It would seal together starting at the top, and rip through the seams as it went to the toes/fins.

*** Wouldn't work, Ursula clearly states that Eric is the one who has to kiss her and really mean it. She's not going to leave such an exploitable loophole for Ariel to abuse.


Added DiffLines:

*** Another horror: for the previous merfolk to be done in by not being able to pay then they must have signed the contract before Ursula was done explaining the deal, letting their excitement get the best of them. Once the contract was signed they were obligated to pay as long as Ursula fulfilled her part.

* Ursula's penultimate line "POOR, INSIGNIFICANT FOOLS!" is nothing more than "POOR UNFORTUNATE SOULS", twisted to reflect Ursula's ''true'' colors on the matter.

* In one episode, Ariel actually meets Hans Cristian Anderson and he's inspired to write her story. That's great...until you remember how horrifying the mermaid's transformation was in his story. What the hell, Hans?
