Ha! My daughter was so confused about when this movie was made. We received the Little Mermaid on Blu-ray combo pack and she thought it had never come out into homes before. When we were watching it she was so excited that one of her friends was over to watch it with her. She was happy because she thought she was sharing a new experience with this little girl because it’s the first time you can watch it on TV. (It’s out today by the way..)
My son was annoyed because I was singing along with every song
And then my daughter found out that her friend had seen the Little Mermaid on VHS, not knowing what VHS is she was still confused as to how her friend had seen it before when we were the “FIRST” to own it. I had to explain to her that it’s the first time you can watch it in HIGH DEFINITION, but the Little Mermaid came out when I was a little girl.
Somehow, she still misunderstood. She thought this was a new version and this was still the first time it came out. Then her dad explained it, in what I thought was the exact same way I did, but finally she understood. The Little Mermaid is now in High Definition, it’s the same movie mommy saw as a little girl and the world is ok with everyone being able to sing along.
Well, unless you ask my son, he still groans every time I try to sing along. Little does he know I could quote the entire movie. LOL….
“It’s a dinglehopper. Humans use these little babies… to straighten their hair out. See? Just a little twirl here and yank there and voila! You’ve got an aesthetically pleasing configuration of hair that humans go nuts over.” – Buddy Hackett voicing ‘Scuttle’ in The Little Mermaid
