""It's not the 1979, so I just hate it because I ordered the wrong one!" Urrgh!

This version of the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale was produced by Diane Eskenazi and distributed by the unpopular GoodTimes Entertainment studio. "The Little Mermaid" (1992) follows the adventures of a sweet, fun-loving little sea girl named Lena, who after a visit to the above world, falls deeply in love with Prince Stefan. Lena then visits the wicked sea-witch Cassandra, who in exchange for Lena's enchanting voice, gives the little mermaid legs to walk on land, warning her that if Prince Stefan were to marry someone other than her, then would Lena be turned into seafoam for all time. Lena then is able to walk on land and when Prince Stefan meets the girl, he too falls in love, unfortunatelly, trouble comes for Lena when Princess Anna is then pressured by her father to marry Stefan.

Like in many other Disney and GoodTimes films, a few sidekicks are added for comic relief and to add a sense of friendship and companionship into the movie; Bink, the dolphin, is Lena's best friend, but at the same time is an important character in the story. Animation quality does not live up to Disney's standards, being a bit rougher and less realistic, but nothing that would make a child enjoy this any less than a Disney film, after all, this films are meant for children and adults viewing should take that into consideration before bashing it. Music, as in many other GoodTimes releases is one of the strengths in this film. Golden Films (The producers) has always done a good job of selecting music for their films, rather than creating a brand new musical soundtrack, timeless classical pieces are added by some of the best and most famous composers of all time. One lovely, original song is included in the opening and instrumentally reprised later on in the film, that song is called "The World Above" in which the singer steps into Lena's "shoes" and dreams of life by her prince on land.

This film is somewhat hard to find offline, for not many stores carry GoodTimes' line of Collectible Classics. However, finding it online at a price of about $5.95 should be no real challenge. One of the best things about these children's films is that, being so cheap, a small child might just save up to buy them on their own. Overall, memorable and heartwarming Golden Films/GoodTimes fair, I'd recommend it to the very young and the very young at heart."

"As some folk have mentioned, this *is* the version from the late seventies/early eighties that may have frightened and enchanted you or your children. It's an honest, heart-wrenching animated film that ends with a glimmer of hope. Far deeper than the Disney version, treat yourself and/or your children to this beautiful and meaningful story."
