* Ursula, being extremely GenreSavvy for a Disney villain, removes the one thing that her victims would find most helpful to fulfill their contract to her. In Ariel's case it was her voice to make it ridiculously hard for Eric fall in love and impart that one true kiss. So what the hell did Ursula take away from that Mermaid who just wanted to be thinner during ''Poor Unfortunate Souls'' in order for her to fail her contract? Because I have horrible images of the poor thing gorging herself to bursting point after Ursula stole her self-control.

* Did anyone think to clue Ariel in on how mammalian sex works before her wedding night with Prince Eric? 'Cause that's got to be a helluva surprise if you're not expecting it.

*** Kicking off your shoes if you fall into deep water is considered a survival tip; Eric's boots would have been the heaviest thing he could safely lose.

* The SeashellBra that the mermaids wear, beside preserving modesty, also serve another [[WatsonianVersusDoylist doylist]] purpose: the shells are rigid, so the animators didn't have to care about the underwater JigglePhysics.

* In the original book, the titular mermaid had no soul and thus had to earn one in the afterlife. In the disney adaptation,''Ariel is a ginger.''

** Ursula would have used Flotsam and Jetsam to drag her to the surface if Sebastian and Flounder were not there. If she wanted Ariel dead so pointlessly, she wouldn't have wasted a contract on her.

** He's inspired, not bound to write Ariel's biography. Assuming the first movie follows the animated series, Queen Ariel would have rather liked the random writer who she met as a girl become famous for his good, albeit depressing, imaginary stories than for dumping everything she told him in a book for money and fame.

* In one episode, a character is able to take a human boot and transform it into a weapon, much like a gun. Now, remember how Eric loses two pairs of boots in the ocean in the first film?

* There's evidence that Ursula turning into Vanessa is just an elaborate glamour, not a physical change. The mirror reveals her true form, which wouldn't be the case if she was totally physically transformed. (If it did, every mirror would show Ariel floating in the air with a tail, and in the sequel, [[LockedOutOfTheLoop Melody]] doesn't ever notice anything unusual about Ariel's reflection.) [[EvilDetectingDog Max]] could also tell that Vanessa was bad news, probably because she still smelled like a gigantic, sopping wet octopode. If the wedding hadn't been interrupted, that would have left Eric alone with Ursula's real form, under mind control and therefore helpless, thinking he's making love to a beautiful woman while Ursula does unspeakable things to him.
