  • In the movie’s opening scene with King Triton, you can spot Disney superstars Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck in the crowd.
  • The character of Ariel was based in part on actress Alyssa Milano, who at the time was starring in the popular ABC sitcom Who’s The Boss.
  • One of the film’s best-loved songs, “Under the Sea,” draws on Caribbean Calypso influences.
  • The Little Mermaid marked the start the “Disney Renaissance” during which the studio regained its status as an animation powerhouse.
