This week's Time Travel Tuesday focuses on one of my favorite animated movies of all time, The Little Mermaid. I loved this movie so much growing up! I watched it whenever possible, and I knew every line and every song. I would tie my shirts up to look like seashell bras and pretend I was Ariel, waiting for Prince Eric to rescue me from Ursela the Sea Witch. Even in high school, I had red hair and was asked by at least one person daily to sing "Part of Your World" (I'm looking at you, Julie). I will never stop loving this classic story.
My childhood nightmares starred Ursela the Sea Witch. Creepy octopus.
This movie is fun and entertaining, no matter how old you are. I've introduced my daughter to The Little Mermaid (who, consequently, has red hair and blue eyes just like her) and she loves it. She carries a Little Mermaid pillow around with her everywhere she goes. And she loves dancing to the music.
I still make references to that funny French chef and his Les Poissons. (HEEHEEHEE, HAWHAWHAW!)
Make your move, Prince Eric!
If you haven't watched a good Disney film in a while, pick this one up. It will definitely take you back. Other totally awesome Disney flicks: Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Rescuers Down Under, and Oliver and Company. That's my favorites, by the way. Have an Animated Disney day with your kids, or just yourself. I won't judge.
