* DawsonCasting: Creator/JodiBenson was in her mid-twenties voicing the sixteen-year-old Ariel. However it's an aversion for Christopher Daniel Barnes, voicing Eric, as he actually was sixteen at the time.

* One of the models they used as a reference for Ariel's movements was Sherri Stoner, who would go on to voice Slappy Squirrel in Animaniacs. That's right: Slappy Squirrel was Ariel. Try wrapping your brain around THAT one...
* Ariel was largely modelled off actress Creator/AlyssaMilano, who hosted a 1989 Disney Channel documentary about the making of the movie, and would later use the movie in a WholePlotReference for an episode of ''{{Series/Charmed}}''. Despite hosting the documentary, Alyssa apparently didn't find out that she was the model until years later. Ironically she is terrified of water.

** James Baxter was embarrassed by most of his animation of Ariel, particularly the scene where she says "Daddy I love him!"--in his own words, he said he made her look like a fish eyed freak and apologized to her head animator Glen Keane for drawing her too OffModel.
** Animator Will Finn enjoyed working on The Little Mermaid, but he stated on his Small Room blog that he was not happy with his animation of Grimbsy, saying there are only one or two scenes he did that don't make him cringe today.
