I’ve always thought Ursula was one of those ‘evil’ names, like Lucifer

I just watched The Little Mermaid for the first time EVER. I just found out from IMDb that the movie was released in the US the year I was born, so that movie’s been out as long as I’ve been alive, and I’d never seen it till today.

It’s the first movie that I’ve been able to cross off a long list of Disney movies that I never got to watch as kid. It wasn’t that great. It was just like another movie to me. But then again, I’m a 20 year old watching a children’s movie for the first time. I guess if I had enjoyed that movie as a 6 year old, it would’ve been more fun for me now.

I thought there might be a list of the animated Disney movies on Wikipedia, and lo and behold, there is! So I’m gonna list those movies and cross ’em off as I watch ’em (I’ve never heard of some a lot of these, by the way):
