Disney's The Little Mermaid Jr.

headstrong primary protagonist of the musical, dreaming of life on
land instead of “under the sea”. She is the youngest daughter of
King Triton, and the apparent niece of Ursula.
- Ursula—Sea Witch
- The musical's sinister and
cunning primary antagonist. She tricks Ariel into trading her
voice for a pair of human legs in order to hopefully win Prince
Eric's heart, only to attempt to take advantage of Ariel's
naivety. She is the apparent sister of King Triton, and aunt of
- King Triton Merman
- The strict but caring father of
Ariel, and ruler over Atlantica. He originally hates humans, due
to the loss of his wife, causing him to commonly reprimand Ariel
for her constant human explorations, but eventually realizes it is
best to let her follow her dreams. He is the apparent brother of

secondary protagonist. He is destined to recover the girl that
saved him from drowning, ignorant to the fact that it is Ariel,
with whom he eventually falls in love.

musical's primary comic relief, and reluctantly assists Ariel in
her efforts to charm Prince Eric.

accompanies Ariel on her excursions in search of human

- One of Ursula's sly and slippery
- Jetsam Eel
- Another one of Ursula's cunning
- Grimsby Human
- Prince Eric's faithful servant and
friend. Seemingly a close friend of Eric's late father, Grimsby's
main initiative is to ensure that Eric marries a princess to
maintain his promise to the deceased king. However, he realizes
Ariel is, a princess, and is more than happy to let them wed.
- Chef Louis Human
- The castle chef, who tries to capture
Sebastian and cook him for dinner.

primary maid and housekeeper. Despite the remarks of her fellow

her best to make her feel comfortable
