The Little Mermaid

As clearly evident by many posts on this blog, I love Disney.  I even follow some Disney blogs in my Feedly (shocking, I know).  Over the weekend, one of the official Disney blogs posted that the Little Mermaid came out 24 years ago.  Whoa...I seriously feel old now.  Thanks Disney.

I have a memory of going to see it with my friend Erin in the theatre.  No idea if that's a real memory or not (I also have a memory of going to see Snow White in the theatre which my mom says did not happen, so who knows if I actually saw the Little Mermaid in the theatre).

Either way, The Little Mermaid ranks as one of my all time favorite Disney movies.  I totally wanted to be Ariel for the longest time.  The Disney post post includes a great recap of the movie all in gifs.  I am pretty sure I did/thought all of the things mentioned in the same post.

Sometimes I just love the internet.

  1. I remember being in grade school when 'The Little Mermaid' came out. I didn't see it until several years later, on video cassette at a friend's house.

    I do have a very clear memory of seeing 'Aladdin' in the theater with my friend Sharon. I think we were sophomores in high school. I can also remember when my mom rented 'Beauty and the Beast' and I saw it the first time - I was a high school freshman. It was 1991, election day, the day Bill Clinton got elected president for the first time. I went with Mom to the polling place, and we stopped at the video store afterward.
