Top 5 Disney Villains of my 90’s

4. URSULA (The Little Mermaid)

While this movie premiered in 1989, it belongs to the Disney Renaissance and I watched it like a year before The Lion King. It was a school outing and for some (awesome) reason, they decided to rent a theater and show us The Little Mermaid. I loved it so much, even if I always thought Ariel was dumb to leave her cool mermaid life for a bland boy, even if he was a Prince.

Of course, years later I realized Ariel was a human fangirl, so I understood her a bit better. So, in my evil kid mind, I didn’t mind at all that Ursula took advantage of this dumb girl while singing her great song “Come on, you poor unfortunate soul, go ahead! Make your choice!“. We could all see the deception a mile away. Ursula was fantastic, she was comfortable with herself, as you could see for her body language, but she was also quite insane. After the movie, I read the story by Hans Christian Andersen… man, it was a downer, and the Sea Witch wasn’t as great or evil as Ursula.

    In evilness, I’d choose Lady Tremaine because she really is evil — not crazy cuckoo ha-ha she’s so funny evil kinda way. Just plain evil. LOL

    5. Cruella de Vil (I think this is influenced by Glenn Close now LOL)

      @amy, I couldn’t put Yzma because The Emperor’s New Groove came out in 2000 XD
      Cruella de Vil and Maleficent are two villains that I got to love as I grew older, but I didn’t love the first time I watched them, unlike all the ones mentioned in my list~

        @mirella, oh yeah- I forgot Yzma is post-90s xD

        Shift all up and add Madame Min in #5 And she has her song! Unlike Hades xD

        But I do love singing to Ratigan! The world greatest criminal…….. RAT! xD

          @amy, Can you believe I saw The Sword in the Stone in 2001? Oh, I knew of its existence but I never got to watch it. It was my first year in University and somehow I planned to watch all the Disney films I missed. I also saw the first Rescuers in that way. I have only watched Rescuers Down Under before XD
