a cameo in 'Hercules.' She can also be found in a few video games
such as the Kingdom Hearts series, Disney Princess, The Little
Mermaid, Disney Universe, and The Little Mermaid 2 Pinball Frenzy.
She can also be found in different types of merchandise such as
toys, books, pins, and other clothing. She has really gained a great
deal of popularity since 'The Little Mermaid' was released.
She lives under the sea in a lair. She wants to
rule the sea and will stop at nothing for that to happen. She has
many allies at her disposal such as Jetsam, Flotsam, Morgana, Glut,
and the rest of the Disney villains. Her enemies include Ariel,
Prince Eric, Flounder, King Triton, Sebastian, Mickey Mouse, and the
rest of the heroes.
*FUN FACT* Ursula was going to be Ariel's aunt in
the first draft of the film.
Ursula is half human, half octopus. She has two
arms and six tentacles, she is overweight, has purple skin, white
hair, red lips, and she has a very deep voice. She is a very rude
and twisted villain.
She was animated by Nik Ranieri and Ruben A.
Aquino. She was voiced by the wonderful actress Pat Caroll.
*FUN FACT* The animators originally wanted Bea
Arthur to voice Ursula, but she turned them down because she was
still filming The Golden Girls.

the world. She can be found in Voyage of the Little Mermaid,
Starlight Dreams, Fantasmic!, SpectroMagic, Walt Disney's Parade of
Dreams, The Golden Mickeys, The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Undersea
Adventure, Disney Dreams, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, and
