“The Little Mermaid wasnt worldly. If anything, Ariel actually sought a... ahem, higher plane than her current undersea world. And it certainly represented Christian values FAR better than the original tale did.”
Just using the Lil’ Mermaid to establish the time I tuned out. I did not see the show, only the massive amount of Mermaid related products hawked. It was the commercialization I focused upon. Never saw the production.
