In only three decades — almost immediately, really — Disney’s The Little Mermaid has already proven itself a timeless classic. Many elements of the Disney adaptation have entrenched themselves into cultural memory. We all grow up knowing the wondrous songs, characters like Sebastian and Ursula, and Jodi Benson’s beautiful vocals as Ariel. However, there is far more to the story of the Little Mermaid than those lovely 83 minutes. The tale has a long history before 1989, and that history has only continued since then.
