The Little Mermaid's Real Name is Michelle?

If they're gonna change the characters' names
we might as well invite Nemo to the party
Ariel & Flounder aka "Michelle" and "Phil"

Sebastian aka "Crabby"?

Took Peanut to see a puppet show on Labor Day. It was the last showing of The Little Mermaid at this one playhouse. Was pretty excited to introduce her to puppets, but was a bit disappointed with the show. The puppeteers were really good at their craft, but I guess due to copyright reasons they were not allowed to use the Disney character names...so, she sat there for the first few minutes wondering why they were calling Ariel "Michelle" and Flounder "Phil" (as in "Fillet")...turned out to be quite a corny show and they used music from the movie Titanic...this is just wrong on so many levels! And it wasn't cheap, either. All in all she enjoyed the show, so that's what really counts....wonder if she's going to ask me to find a Michelle costume for Halloween now instead of an Ariel costume....hmmmm? She did get to watch the show with one of her good friends, which is always a treat!
