Once upon a time, in a kingdom beneath the sea, there lived a beautiful
princess named Ariel. Her father, King Triton, forbade her to have anything
to do with humans, but the headstrong princess was fascinated by people and
their lives on land.
One night Ariel saw a handsome prince aboard a passing ship and fell hopelessly
in love. She rescued the prince from a sudden storm and sang to him as he awakened
from a deep and exhausted sleep.
Ariel wanted only to be with her prince, Eric. In desperation, she made a cruel bargain
with Ursula, the sea Witch. Ursula would make Ariel human and give her legs in exchange for Ariel's beautiful voice. But if Eric did not Kiss Ariel in three days time, she would become Ursula's slave forever.
On land, in Eric's kingdom, Ariel was blissfully happy. Eric was falling in love with her when Ursula, disguised as a young woman with Ariel's voice, suddenly appeared to lure Eric away.
Ariel's guardian crab, Sebastian, and her friend, Flounder, hurried to help her. And Scuttle, the seagull, bravely tried to stop the wedding. But Ursula's evil magic was very strong. See the heroic struggle and the storybook ending to this wonderful tale of love and romance both above and under the sea.
