A true friend
Flounder is a rather important character in the famous Disney cartoon The Little Mermaid, based on the classic Andersen fairy tale of the same name. In this story, Ariel is an adventurous young mermaid with a passion for the human world. During a storm, she saves Prince Eric from drowning and immediately falls in love with him. Desperate not to see him again, she goes to the witch Ursula to make a deal. Ursula gives her legs in exchange for her voice, but most importantly, Ariel has only three days to make Eric fall in love with her and kiss her, or else she will become Ursula’s slave forever. Flounder is a small exotic fish and a faithful friend of Ariel. He is the only one who has always supported her in her obsession with the human world. He even gives her a statue of Eric at one point. Although he can’t follow her to Earth, he does everything he can to keep up with Ariel’s progress with the prince.
