Fun for kids!!!!!
3 September 2006 | by ((Near) D/FW Airport, Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

Disney's outstanding reputation of producing the best in children's entertainment continued into 1992 with "The Little Mermaid," and this show is based on the 1989 theatrical animated film. Unlike other shows like "TaleSpin," which would borrow a few characters from the Disney films, this was the first to use all of the characters from the film; something that would become a new practice for the "good old Disney cartoon shows."

This was a cute show; it was friendly, especially for the little ones!!!!! This not only played on local television but this ended up on the Old Disney Channel in the mid to late 90s along with the other little children's shows.

"The Little Mermaid" was not just a great series; it opened up the door to a new way of making Disney shows!!!!!
