Trivia: The studio first considered making The Little Mermaid in the late 1930s, and illustrator Kay Nielsen prepared story sketches in pastels and watercolors. Her work was studied by the film's modern-day animators, and Nielsen received a "visual development" credit on the film.
Trivia: In the song "Poor Unfortunate Souls" during the line "and she who holds her tongue will get a man", we see Ursula throw an actual tongue into the cauldron. This might be a reference to the original story by Hans Christian Anderson where instead of the sea witch taking the mermaid's voice, she took her tongue instead.
