The Little Mermaid Ariel and Sebastian: “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not…”
The Litt le Mermaid As Ariel daydreams about her true love — who just happens to be a forbidden human — Sebastian the crab attempts to talk the in-over-her-head little mermaid into staying under the sea. One directing animator revealed his love of developing characters with strong desires in overcoming seemingly impossible feats — and that’s Ariel who dreams of walking on land, becoming human and marrying the man of her dreams — a human Prince, no less — the kind of longings that make a character really appealing. Flashes of another diminutive sidekick, Jiminy Cricket, crossed the mind of one supervising animator who sensed reluctance in Sebastian when it came to his unsung duty of keeping tabs on Ariel. Plussed with four pewter flowers and a bronze Sebastian, this colorful sculpture details the delightful dynamic between the undersea princess and her exasperated musical mentor.
Tawny-haired mermaid Ariel was one of Disney's most immediately popular animated heroines. Ariel is a girl in the process of becoming an attractive woman. One of her attractive qualities is that she is very definite about what she is doing and very confident about her own ability to succeed. Of course, a good deal of that confidence is ill-placed, as she is just a teenager. Although she is warned by her father, King Triton, that humans are dangerous, Ariel stubbornly believes otherwise and has an insatiable curiosity about them. She explores human artifacts (sunken ships, etc.) and is constantly going into forbidden territory: the surface. This, of course, leads her to love ... and trouble.
