Welcome to Clear Black Lines, a fansite for various animated movies and other random animation-related bits 'n bobs that have caught my fancy. I'm Annie, and this is my little corner of the web.

Daring to Dream: I've put up page four of scans from the
Grolier Treasure Chest series ("Flounder's Folly,
"Flounder, My Hero", "The Good Sport", and "Her Majesty, Ariel"), plus scans from a
Short Stories book and a few more
colouring pages. On the movie page I added a listings of
all the extras in the Platinum and Diamond Edition DVD/Blu-Rays,
and on the videos page I added a link for the Sebastian's Party
Gras! concert that was released on video in 1992 (I didn't upload that, just to be clear!). Over in the
Other Mermaids section, I've added pages for Ever After High and
Rosario + Vampire.
I did a bunch of additions and clean-up on the music page. The original soundtrack and the Legacy Collection soundtrack now have info on the instrumental tracks in their sections, and that info has also been separated onto its own instrumentals page for quick reference. I previously forgot to add the lyrics and audio samples for the demo tracks of the Legacy Collection album, so I've done that, namely for Fathoms Below, The Daughters of Triton, and Part of Your World. For Ursula's stage musical song Daddy's Little Angel, I've added audio samples from the Dutch, Japanese and Russian recordings, seeing as the song has yet to be included on an English-language recording. I've also added listings for some albums I missed before, i.e. the 10th Anniversary album rerelease (including lyrics + audio sample of Shaggy's Under the Sea cover), the Shell We Dance? compilation album, and On the Record (including its covers of Under the Sea, Part of Your World, Poor Unfortunate Souls, Kiss the Girl, and Les Poissons), and The Little Mermaid: Favorites compilation album.

Daring to Dream: I've been doing some tweaks and spring-cleaning all over the website, so let me know if anything doesn't work! I've overhauled the long-untouched movie, sequel and prequel pages, which should be more useful now, with more general info about the films, DVD releases and other bits 'n bobs. I've also revamped the videos page, where I've given up providing downloads (it's just too much hassle) and am just going to link to videos that are posted elsewhere. Over in the gallery, I've added four more books of the Treasure Chest series ("The Crabby Conductor", "Dear Diary", "Detective Sebastian", and "A Dragon's Tail"), and over in the Other Mermaids section I've added Mermaids of Tiburon and Barbie Dreamtopia.

Daring to Dream: It looks like the live-action film version of Ariel's story is happening after all, which is something to look forward to soon! On the comics page I've added "The Christmas Spirit" comic, plus I've added scans from four more books of the Treasure Chest series ("The Big Switch", "Castles in the Sand", "A Charmed Life", and "Cheer Up, Sebastian") and excerpts from Disney Villains: Delightfully Evil to the gallery. Over on the section of other mermaids, there's new pages for Mad About Men and Peter Pan no Bouken.

Daring to Dream: At time of writing this, the Little Mermaid Hollywood Bowl concert with Sara Bareilles and Jodi Benson is a few days away, and hopefully there'll be some cool news and tidibits for fans that didn't get to attend. Here on Daring to Dream I've added a bunch more stuff to the gallery, namely scans from two books ("Ariel is My Babysitter" and "Flounder Loves Ariel"), one more Disney Princess comic, a few more colouring pages, and a few more activity pages. Over on the section of Other Mermaids, I've added The New Adventures of Peter Pan and Stephen Chow's Mermaid.
