    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!

The narrator keeps saying that the little mermaid “felt dumb” because she could speak... she didn’t FEEL dumb.. she WAS dumb.. dumb just means she is unable to speak.

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.

The original story of the little mermaid is so dark and very sad. I'm glad that the little mermaid had the happy ever after that it did because this story just wants to give someone nightmares. 😱

I actually read the original stories before I watched the Disney movies.. It's really sad but more real. In the real life their is no such things like happy ending. After happy ending there are still problems..

Well, the converse may also be true, Disney's version is messed up, relative to Hans Christian Andersen's tale.

This is a really bad retelling/writing of the real story. Do yourselves a favor and search "Hans Christian Andersen the little mermaid"...there are several un"retouched" options that you can listen to at your convenience. Some fairy tales are ancient stories passed down in the oral tradition, so to play so fast and loose with the text is more forgivable...but Andersen wrote his tales far more recently, so the original texts are easily accessible, not only in terms of how fast YouTube or Google can get you the results for free, but also in terms of being effortlessly understandable. The language isn't that tricky. While you're at it, you might get The Snow Queen, too...that one bears NO resemblance at all to what Disney made of it...Frozen.
