Originally, Sebastian was to have an English accent. It was lyricist/producer Howard Ashman who suggested he speak with a Caribbean accent. This opened the door to calypso-style numbers like "Under the Sea," which won the Academy Award.
Isn't this great? The salty sea air, the wind blowing in your face. Aaah, the perfect day to be at sea!

In the original 1989 theatrical release, the original home video release, the 1998 home video release, and the 1999 DVD release, there is a scene where Ursula (as Vanessa) is marrying Eric (most of this scene is still in newer versions). In one shot you can see the Priest's knee move up and down, which looks convincingly (to some) like an erection. In the 2006 Platinum Edition and current releases, it was censored due to controversy.
