Trivia

King Colbert (Kenneth Mars) comes to the defense of his son by asking Queen Tabitha (June Foray) if she remembers being sixteen. This was precisely the problem that Mars' character (King Triton) had in The Little Mermaid (1989) which also starred Jodi Benson and was similarly based on a Hans Christian Andersen fairytale.

I love this movie!!
28 October 2004 | by Elizabeth_d13See all my reviews

Ever since I first saw this movie I have loved it. It grabbed hold of my imagination. It also follows very close to the original story which is more than I can say for several other books made to movies. It has also captivated the imagination of my children. They will sit through this movie and then talk about it all day. They even pretend to be the characters. This movie is one of the greatest children's movies ever made. It has comedy, beautiful music,a love story and it also teaches a valuable lesson....To always follow your heart and you will have your dreams realized. I recommend this movie to anyone who is in the mood for a feel good movie that leaves you with the feeling that you can do anything if you want it strong enough. I love the songs, I love the story, I love it all.
