It’s been 24 years since the original movie, The Little Mermaid came out. I did not realize it was that long ago. And think how popular the movie still is with children and adults alike! I was 17 with no children and now at 41 with children I still love this movie! We had this movie on VHS for years and sold it a few years ago. My daughter and I were excited to be able to see it again on Blu-Ray. The new Diamond Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack comes out today – October 1st!

Ariel (voiced by Jodi Benson), is a free-spirited mermaid, who is off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder (voiced by Jason Marin), and the reggae-singing Caribbean crab Sebastian (voiced by Samuel E. Wright) at her side. But it will take all of her courage and determination to make her dreams come true—and save her father’s beloved kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula (voiced by Pat Carroll).

My favorite part is when the sea creatures try and get Eric to kiss Ariel to break the magic spell. My daughter’s favorite part is when Ariel finds a fork and Scuttle the seagull tells h it’s a dinglehopper and humans use it to brush their hair with. She just cracks over that one! See the video below…


There are so many wonderful parts to this movie and if for some reason you haven’t seen it yet, please do. You will not be disappointed.
