The most sexy female that you ever seen called Ariel, the youngest daughter of King Triton, is a mermaid who dreams of life outside the sea. The king forbids this, and she decides to strike a bargain with the sea witch, Ursula, but the witch has an evil plan of her own. This movie is hard to hate, the animation is pretty to look at.

Naturally, Tritan doesn't allow it, so Ariel finally betrays her father, and accepts magic from the sea witch, Ursula. Ariel is transformed into a human, but only can remain as such for 3 days. If she fails to kiss Prince Eric …
