Meels (amelia) "Ursula is the main antagonist of the 1989 film. She is voiced by Pat Carroll in the film, the spin-off television series and the Kingdom Hearts video games. Ursula is based on the "sea witch/sorceress" character in Hans Christian Andersen's story "The Little Mermaid". In the original story the sea witch is a neutral enabler, but for Disney's animated adaptation, the character was modified into a full-fledged antagonist and plays a larger role in the overall story. Ursula is an cecaelia sea witch who "helps" unfortunate merfolk to achieve her own goals."

"An octopus person is a composite mythical being, appearing occasionally in art, literature, and multimedia; combining the head, arms and torso of a woman (more rarely a man) and, from the lower torso down, the tentacles of an octopus or squid as a form of mermaid or sea demon.[citation needed] They are sometimes referred to as "sea witches".
Since 2007, the term cecaelia has become more-frequently used online in the naming of these hybrid creatures"


According to Wikipedia.

Meels (amelia) Phil, you're like the little brother that FORCES you to give him a noogie.

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments whenever i see this thread i start singing the song "everybody wants to be a cat....because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at..."

no real reason


message 13: by Meels (new)

Meels (amelia) Just watched a clip...Disney appears to have given her six tentacles, which is typical of Disney and no help.

smetchie | 4034 comments 6 tentacles and 2 arms, so technically 8 but definitely NOT 10. Octopi live in solitary caves. Clearly she's an octopus. That was no face off at all but just proof that I'm a cephalotard Cecaelimbecile. I thought of her as a squid because she makes ink.

According to Answers.com:

" Do octopuses squirt ink?

In: Octopus and Squid

Yes, most octopuses and their relatives in the cephalopod family squirt some manner of ink, although deep-sea cephalopds usually squirt a bioluminescent equivalent that leaves their would-be predator at risk of attack in the darkest parts of the ocean."

I'm belatedly giving Phil props for this one.


message 18: by Meels (new)

Meels (amelia) You give him props, I give him a noogie.

Jim | 6485 comments I'll give him a wet willie.

Phil | 11694 comments Whew, I survived without a wedgie.


message 21: by Meels (new)

Meels (amelia) It can be arranged...


message 22: by Salvador (new)

Salvador Ayam | 1 comments NO NO NO you're all wrong and not Little Mermaid aficionado's like I am, and I'm sad to burst your bubbles but Ursula is in fact a Squid the reason why she's in a so called cave dwelling witch in fact she lives in the innards of a dead sea creature is because she was banished there by her brother King Triton you all should pay close attention to this movie


message 23: by Meels (new)

Meels (amelia) Well, she squirts ink. Which one squirts ink?

*gives Phil a 2 year over due wedgie*
