Sebastian is the Jiminy of The Little Mermaid

Have you ever noticed that Sebastian the crab is the Jiminy Cricket of The Little Mermaid? DID WE JUST BLOW YOUR MIND? Thought so.

 

Think about it. He’s a small speaker of reason, just like Jiminy.

They’re both cute.

Whenever Ariel is like “hey I want to do this crazy thing!” Sebastian is like “Jeez, mon!” and acts as her conscience, just like Jiminy has to do with Pinocchio.

And like Jiminy, Sebastian is ignored.

Which is upsetting to both Jiminy and Sebastian.

But they still stand by their puppet and mermaid, respectively, even though their advice isn’t heeded.

Both of their crazy adventures involve some under the sea action.

They are both extremely musical.

And to finish, it’s sort of crazy that Pinocchio wants to be a real boy and Ariel wants to be a human. But we’ll save that for another time.
