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

[[AC: Fridge Horror]]
* 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?

* Of course Ariel can't just write Eric a note. Even if she's seen a human writing tool before, she wouldn't know what the hell it was because she would have learned it from Scuttle (and thus learned wrong), and she lives underwater, where using regular ink on paper is impossible. The only time she writes anything, it's with a magic laser fishbone quill that burns her name magically into a magical parchment. If she had a desk set in front of her, she still wouldn't have a clue what to actually do with it.

** She lives at the bottom of the sea, pretty much everything she does down there is done under a ridiculous amount of pressure from the weight of the water. She climbs all over the place as a human, but she also flawlessly controls a horse-drawn carriage. When they're running crazy, it's because she's letting them. On land, Ariel basically has super strength from the waist up.




to:

* Ariel declaring that she loves Eric sounds like your typical teenage blather because of course it does, she's only ever seen him the one time and they never even spoke, so it feels like Triton's anger is justified even if he overreacts about it... until you realize he has no reason to know that. He knows she goes to the surface all the time, there's no reason to think she's never really met the man she says she loves. He wrecks her grotto solely because he hates humans and she refuses to agree with him. He completely overlooks the legitimate problem with her behavior because what he cares about is establishing dominance: demanding that she sing his praises, uphold his grudges and buy into his prejudices, all while pretending it's about her safety so he can still claim the moral high ground. When he signs the contract to give himself up for her freedom, he's not giving her a get-out-of-bad-decisions-free card, he's making up for throwing her under the bus before by sincerely protecting her.

** RewatchBonus: listen to the polyps after Ariel breaks free from their grip. Amidst all the moaning, one manages to make a cry of "I failed!"

* Unlike [[LeanAndMean many]] [[VainSorceress other Disney witches]], Ursula is a [[FatBastard fat]] [[VillainousGlutton hag]] with a masculine voice, unattractive white short hair and a big pimple on her (double) chin. Why can't she apply the magic powers she uses to make her clients pretty [[VainSorceress on herself]] (cfr. "[[VillainSong This one ''lounging to be thinner'', that one wants to get the girl, and do I help them? Yes, indeed!]]")? It's simple: she can't change her ShapeshifterDefaultForm. ". As shown in "Vanessa's song" and a comics story ("Reflections of [[MeaningfulName Arsulu]]"), it doesn't matter how much magic she can use to [[FormerlyFat shorten her waist]] or restore her youthful looks: it would take only a [[TheMirrorShowsYourTrueSelf mirror]] to find out that nice, young girl is anything but. In fact, it turns out in both the stories to be one of her few major [[AchillesHeel weaknesses]].
