Hi I collect Little Mermaid/Ariel pins.
"There was a time when Disney princesses were neatly packaged and always pristine and pretty. Ariel was the first to break from that box. I remember my mentors Frank (Thomas) and Ollie (Johnson) said after the opening of The Little Mermaid that they would never have animated Ariel that way. I said, why? Because you drew her face with ugly expressions at times when we were very careful to only draw our princesses with prettiest of expressions. And at that time I realized that this was a new generation of acting. Anytime we had a choice to choose pretty or real we would always chose real. The authentic emotion is our goal."
-Glen Keane, animator of Ariel
