The Little Mermaid movie could have been a very different production without the witty writing style of John Musker and Ron Clements, and their willingness to listen to feedback from others, including music producer Howard Ashman.

They answered questions ranging from how Ariel was named to what to do if you’ve ever dreamed of having Disney produce a movie you wrote.
