|Mermaid Myths and Legends|
There have been Mermaid stories for the last 3000 years.
The most famous Mermaid in modern times is Hans Christian Anderson's The little Mermaid. This fairy tale was published in Danish in 1837, and in English in 1872. In 1913 a statue was made of her, sitting on a rock at Copenhagen harbor.
Younger people will be familiar with Walt Disney's animated film The Little Mermaid which was first screen in 1989.
As is often the case, Disney's adaptations are far more benign and child-friendly than the the stories they are based on.
|A popular 1960s TV series was Stingray - Marina the mute mermaid helps the humans foil the nefarious plots of various undersea inhabitants.|
