Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia segment!  I’m joined by my friends Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, Heidi from Heidi’s Head, and Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, and today I’ve got a little Little Mermaid trivia for you!

The Little Mermaid…

Did you know that on January 20, 1990, The Little Mermaid nearly one the Best Picture Golden Globe award?  Here are all the details, courtesy of our friends at This Day in Disney History:

Although nominated for Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical, The Little Mermaid is edged out by Driving Miss Daisy at the Golden Globe Awards. The Little Mermaid does win Best Original Song – Motion Picture for “Under the Sea” – written by Alan Menken & Howard Ashman. Ironically they beat out another of their own tunes nominated – “Kiss the Girl” (also from The Little Mermaid). Alan Menken is awarded Best Original Score – Motion Picture for his work on The Little Mermaid.

Now, before you head over to see the rest of the entries, why not take a look at the sing along video that I found of Under the Sea!  It’s got the lyrics, so if you don’t know all the words, no worries, just keep singing along!
