    Do you think that you know everything about “The Little Mermaid”? You might have seen the Disney princess movie, but only a few of you have actually read the original fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. We have to tell you that there is no love story and no Prince Charming because we are only showing you the messed up origins of “The Little Mermaid.” Make sure you watch this video until the end to know if Ariel lives happily ever after.
    The beginning is really similar to what we saw in the Disney princess movie as Ariel was fascinated by the human world. As soon as she got old enough to go near the ships, she fell in love with a man and thought that he would be her Prince Charming. And unlike what we saw in the movie, she took much more time to get to know him before making the biggest decision of her life.
    If you watched “The Little Mermaid,” you know that Ariel exchanged her voice for a pair of legs. But in the original fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, the deal that she made with the sea witch was more terrifying. The sorceress herself said that the young woman was dumb. But you’ll have to watch this video to know more about that crazy agreement.
    Stay tuned to hear more about the messed up origins of the little mermaid like how the young girl suffered from the deal with the sea witch, how the Prince called her, who he finally ended up with, and if she ever lived happily ever after. Which fairy tale story do you prefer? Don’t be shy to answer in the comments section down below. We love to hear what you think!

Ursula stole ariels voice and her tongue but when she got legs when she took a step it was like she was stepping on sharp glass r knives,and the author made this story for children to learn, but the story never spread to Disney beacause Disney thought it was to much for kids even though it was for children to know the true story

The fact that the sea witch literally cut out the little mermaid tongue 👅 just freaks me out terribly. As she walked and danced with her new legs it felt like being stabbed with knives 🔪 and then after all that sacrifice and torture she loses the prince 🤴 and doesn’t get to be part of his world. Yes she gets an immortal soul which is wonderful but I feel so bad for the little Princess. I hated this version. Especially her tongue being cut out and her body dying. Not a good children’s bedtime story or fairytale!!

Nicole Rose u are so right it is totally torture for poor Ariel to go through ALLL of that and that’s how the prince replayed her? Pretty bad but was pretty nice story except the tongue- cutting part. SOOOOO SAD 😔

There is a japanese old anime made in the original story i kind of prefer more and the mermaid is more gorgeous than Ariel her name is Marina in it. Its in youtube but dubbed in Arabic tho. I dont know if there is an English version but worth searching it !

I think this ending makes justice to the story.Yet it's a gruesome tale but whatever happens in the story is justified and I feel that it's the best ending to it.Unlike the fairy tale Disney ending which seems like bullshit ,makes no sense at all. The Mermaid wanted an immortal soul more than anything but grieved for her price charming but in the end, she got to live 300 years as she had to live as a mermaid, but would earn an immortal soul after 300 years of good deed.

Hey, this is a fake story coming ahead but I decided to make a parody of the real story without really watching the video for no reason: Ariel was a mermaid, one that others in the ocean doubted, for this, she led sailing ships to suddenly have a ship wreck with the only thing the others liked about her, her voice. As she led these ships to wreck and most drivers of the ship suffering injuries, Ariel decided to announce She would be going by the nickname “Shipwrecker”, Once she had set her nickname,in just one single month, there were over 30 million news articles about the sudden ship wrecks, Even in far away land, it was broadcasted. She then realized the more she showed herself in these cases, the more profit she made. This soon turned her into a money-making mermaid that was always the cause of shipwrecks. She then realized a few months later that she was being the bad guy, the thing she swore to the others never to do. She wiped up a reflection of herself in the water, she didn’t see herself..she saw a spoiled brat with ounces of gold. She then realized what she was doing, and gave these ounces of gold to foreign travelers. And even though the richer her outfits, the more poor she actually was. She then decided she was done breaking her promises and wiped up all evidence of the ship-wrecks, made a deal with a fellow mermaid in the sea that was offering a deal to become human. Once Ariel had become human, She went to land and tricked a very handsome man into swimming with her. She then drowned the handsome man right into the source of the water. She then decided to do this to herself. It had brought her to a whole new ocean..an ocean of mermaids that have been in the same problem as her. She decided to abuse this power and drown all the mermaids like her there, she was considered a queen and sat in her throne. She was praised by other mermaids, had the same or similar story of/like her or not, it was all to stay not drowned. She was having an amazing time, until 30 days within her throne. Her free days in the throne had expired, so people that survived her drowning them had sent out many powerful guards to disthrone her. Not only was she disthroned in the end, she had to settle with her deadly fate of being drowned in her own style.

When I was a kid, I love to buy story books about the little mermaid. So I know the original story (that is sad) then in middle school I just found out about the disney version (happy ending). I guess I love the happy ending but I still believe in the original story (sad) :(

OK let get things uncover. This is a story of a young woman's lust for an alpha dude hence the "prince" The leg exchange for her tail is her virginity..she got fucked The disapearing voice is, "dont tell anybody that you got fucked" The repeated foot hurt everystep is multiple fucked So..in a men..if women is promiscuous we dont tend to ask how many times you got fucked, a good girl would already defense her true virgin self if it be true, but sorry ..not the maid. So we marry other good girl. Her bitch sisters ofer her "the knife" meaning to kill the man's pride is exactly what feminist do this days, in order to return to the sisterhood..BUT she cant, why??? Because she got fucked and its her own bad descision in the first place NOT the prince. So she ended her self being nothing but sea foams

I had the original story growing up. My mother collected originals. And the story didn't say she was dumb or felt dumb or called dumb over and over like you are portraying it. If you read a version like that then it's not the original story. Also no kissing and cuddling. That kind of thing wasn't something a girl did back in those days.

Never watched the disney version, I grew up with almost the same version as this though at the ending, little mermaid's sisters gave up on their hair in exchange for a knife from the sea witch and gave it to her so she would kill the prince before he gets married to another woman to prevent her becoming a sea foam but then she threw it away and decided to embrace her awful destiny.
