Disney Renaissance kicked off just when I was old enough to start appreciating films and since I always bored stiff with classics like Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella, The Little Mermaid and her deliciously vampy foe were a breath of fresh air. But like Scar, Gaston, Hades and Jafar, Ursula is a far more interesting character than the obvious princess and treating her like this is just offensive. I'm not even going to moan about the message these films convey with their fat, ugly and old baddies or why they felt the need to starve the poor bitch and take about 39 years off her (because, y'know, young and beautiful people can never be evil), but I am pleased everyone who's clapped eyes on that person has reacted with the same emotion: disgust.
Disney, Disney, Disney, you of all people should know not to fuck with the classics. Let's cleanse the palette with a song, shall we?
