EP. 270 — The Little Mermaid

Amy & Paul go under the sea for 1989’s pivotal Disney musical The Little Mermaid! They learn about the queer influences behind the villainous Ursula, try to understand what’s really motivating Ariel, and ask if this still wows the way it did when it was first released. Plus: is Prince Eric…kinda dumb?

 

Next week, Paul & Amy talk to Adam McKay about his Top 3! You can join the conversation for this series on Paul’s Discord at https://discord.gg/ZwtygZGTa6.
