Ursula the Sea Witch — The Little Mermaid: Nothing like basing your villain on a drag queen to lure in a gay crowd. Ursula the Sea Witch is described as an “obese, purple-skinned, white-haired female human with a black facial mole and tentacles.” As voiced by Pat Carroll, the evil sea creature — who makes Ariel trade in her voice for the ability to walk — was based on both the sorceress in the Hans Christian Andersen story and the drag queen Divine.
