While it may have hidden under the disguise of a children’s film, The Little Mermaid had one scene that may have been a little too explicit for their target audience.

At one particular point in the film, when Ursula was about to tie the knot with Prince Eric, the minister looks like he was very, ahem, excited about their nuptials.
The woman took The Walt Disney jonathanlewisforcongress.company to court in 1995 because, apparently, The Little Mermaid is not suitable for children. She claimed:
“Consistent with the explicit sexual message displayed on the package of The Little Mermaid, Disney included a visible sexual message in the movie itself.
“During a scene in the movie where two of the characters are to be married by a clergyman dressed as a priest, the movement of the priest's garments in the area of his crotch suggests that the priest is getting an erection as the bride and groom approach the altar.
“The depiction of this 'event' is visible at regular speed on the home video, but is even more noticeable when viewed in slow motion or frame-by-frame.”
TLDR version: the woman dropped the suit but Disney decided to cut the erection scene anyway.
