Ursula: The Divine Sea Witch
Ursula, the villain from Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID, is a gleefully malevolent sea witch, attended to by her eel minions/familiars (?) Flotsam and Jetsam. She vamps her way through the story, causing a lot of trouble in her bid to unseat King Triton.
Ursula looks pretty cool with that half-tentacled body, and I think a lot of folks like Ursula in all of her corpulent, Divine glory.
Wicked Ursula Quotes
“Bah! In my day, we had fantastical feasts when I lived in the palace. And now, look at me – wasted away to practically nothing – banished, and exiled, and practically starving, while he and his flimsy fish-folk celebrate. Well, I’ll give ’em something to celebrate soon enough. Flotsam! Jetsam! I want you to keep an extra close watch on this pretty little daughter of his. She may be the key to Triton’s undoing…”
“Now, here’s the deal. I will make you a potion that will turn you into a human for three days. Got that? Three days. Now listen, this is important. Before the sun sets on the third day, you’ve got to get dear ol’ princey to fall in love with you. That is, he’s got to kiss you. Not just any kiss the kiss of true love. If he does kiss you before the sun sets on the third day, you’ll remain human, permanently, but if he doesn’t, you turn back into a mermaid, and you belong to me!”
