THE BUZZ: Critics often deride Disney’s propensity to alter classic fairy tales, often softening some of the more traditional elements of the story. Thank goodness they did exactly that with The Little Mermaid. In Hans Christian Andersen’s original version the eponymous heroine doesn’t win the Prince, throws herself from a wedding barge, and turns into sea-foam. The mermaid wanders with the “daughters of the air,” lonely over the world. The only respite she can have (in the typical “mind-your-manners” instruction of Andersen’s stories) is when she enters a house and the child therein is behaving well. Even after casting off that dour finale the original screenplay and artists’ concepts of the Disney version didn’t have Sebastian, the calypso-crab; he was Clarence the classical crab, much stuffier and refined. The late, great lyricist and creative thinker Howard Ashman changed all of that when he was brought on-board, and, with directors Ron Clements, John Musker, animator Glen Keane, and composer Alan Menken, they helped save the hobbled Disney and ushered in a new era of cherished animated films.
