This movie has to be seen to be believed. While a nice example of Rankin-Bass animation, the plot is incredible. Apparently young Hans Christian Anderson was a lazy, selfish dick! He abandons the Little Mermaid after she gives up her immortality to save his life because she might cramp his style; he plays along with the con-artist tailors who give the Emperor his New Clothes; and then in his final act of dickery, he steals Thumbelina's boat and abandons her to the slaving Rat and the horny Mole!
