The Little Mermaid’s Banned VHS Cover Hides An Explicit Secret

Now, over 30 years past the initial VHS release of “The Little Mermaid,” the banned cover has yet to be forgotten. Thanks to the Internet and social media, folks from around the globe have been able to share their memories of the cover. Of course, considering the cover’s taboo nature, some online have wondered if this VHS is worth more than your average “Little Mermaid” tape. Others have even tried to cash in on the controversy, like the person Redditor u/Jowitness highlights in their thread who’s trying to get a whopping $500 for it.

In reality, it’s not among the extremely valuable VHS tapes potentially hiding in your closet. As many in a Reddit thread by u/JoZaJaB pointed out, it’s pretty common and typically ranges in price from a few cents to a few dollars. “There’s for some reason a common misconception that old Disney VHS tapes are worth money when they’re so widely available that I can’t walk down the street without tripping over a copy of Aladdin,” added u/MarfeeWarfee, pointing out the all-too prevalent idea that Disney tapes in general are worth a fortune, especially the supposedly ultra-valuable “black diamond” tapes.

All these years later and the banned “Little Mermaid” VHS is still causing headaches. Back then it was parents concerned about exposing their kids to inappropriate imagery, now its VHS collectors concerned about people being scammed into paying obscene amounts of money for a near-worthless tape. How times have changed.
