In the classic Disney love stories of "Cinderella" and "A Little Mermaid", the story lines are extremely similar. Love stricken teenagers, with parental boundries, and responsibilites they long to escape are the main characters in both of these cartoons. However different these young women seem to be, there are numerous uncanny similarities betwee ...
