Comatose is a series of Disney crossover Fan Videos by YouTuber POJlyA set to Skillet songs. There are four videos: Comatose, Not Gonna Die, Awake & Alive, and Don't Wake Me Up.

The videos are all connected. There's not much editing to them in comparison to other Non/Disney crossover works, however even with the limited effects they still get their stories through well enough.

The story starts with Belle and Adam having recently been married. In his jealousy, a man named Gaston summons Maleficent to turn the prince into a monster. Belle and Adam try to go on with life as normal, but this change puts a strain on their relationship. Belle ends up leaving the castle and returning to her hometown, where she comes across Gaston. After rejecting him, Gaston takes out his anger on Belle's husband and gets others to help pillage his castle. Gaston and Adam get into a fight, which leaves both men presumably dead. Afterwards Belle is captured by Maleficent and locked in a dungeon.


Around this same time, a brother and sister are attacked under order of their king. The brother, Aladdin, ends up in the same dungeon as Belle, while his sister is taken by Jafar to be his personal pet. Belle rescues Aladdin and the two part ways. Aladdin rescues his sister Jasmine from the evil king and gets crowned prince himself. Belle was reunited with Adam, who ended up turning back into a human.

Unknown to Aladdin, Jasmine met a girl named Ariel while captured by Jafar. The two became close, but Ariel was in love with a man named Eric. Jafar wanted to marry Ariel himself and was displeased when Ariel tried to run off. As a result, he turned Ariel into a mermaid and Eric into a statue.

Stuck living under the sea as a mermaid, Ariel ends up living in Atlantis with other merpeople. Triton isn't pleased about Ariel and her Eric statue, as Eric was a fisherman, but he lets Ariel be for the time being. While visiting the surface Ariel spots a human sailor boy named Jim and falls instantly in love with him. Jim also feels attracted to Ariel as well. The two, however, don't meet again until Jim later on finds Ariel crying. Ariel, Triton, and Jim's crew end up getting into a skirmish involving the sea-witch Ursula. After killing her, Ariel is turned back into a human by Triton. Ariel and Jim then get married.


Comatose provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Villainy:
    • Triton kills Eric by smashing his statue form to pieces.
    • Gaston is the reason why Adam turned into the Beast.
  • Adaptational Badass: Aladdin takes down not only Jafar in snake form but Maleficent in dragon form, and with just a sword at that.
  • Age Lift: Jasmine is older than Aladdin by a few years. In canon, it's the other way around.
  • Beauty to Beast:
    • As in canon, Adam was cursed into the Beast. The difference here is that he was married to Belle at the time. This is essentially the original tale but backwards.
    • Jafar turned Ariel into a mermaid for being in love with Eric, not him.
  • The Bus Came Back: Adam and Belle appear at the end after being absent for two videos.
  • Crossover: Between Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty Aladdin, The Little Mermaid (1989), and Treasure Planet.
  • Crossover Couple: There's one-sided Ariel/Aladdin, one-sided Ariel/Jafar, and requited Ariel/Jim. There's also some one-sided Ariel/Jasmine subtext.
  • Advertisement:
  • Damsel in Distress: Aladdin's sister Jasmine gets captured by Jafar. Jasmine, and Ariel, were taken as his sex slaves.
  • Distressed Dude: At the end of Awake & Alive, Aladdin gets captured and thrown into the ocean. He's saved by Ariel.
  • Love at First Sight: Word of God is that Ariel and Jim mutually felt this way when they met.
  • Mistaken for Cheating: Adam sees the wrong thing in his mirror and thinks that Belle left him for Gaston.
  • Mistaken Identity: The part where Ariel saves "Aladdin" features an unedited clip of Eric. Word of God is that it reflects Ariel mistaking Aladdin for her lost love.
  • Perspective Flip: Awake & Alive shows Jasmine's life with Jafar during Not Gonna Die.
  • Rags to Royalty: After defeating Jafar, Aladdin takes his place as prince.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Aladdin and Jasmine are two orphaned siblings.
  • Taken for Granite: Eric gets turned into a statue by Jafar.
  • Unrelated in the Adaptation: Ariel and Triton. The two are unrelated, with Ariel having been born a human.

How well does it match the trope?
