Misty the Mischievous Mermaid is a 1969 Disneyland Records storyteller LP that invites speculation about its source material. Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid was one of the last stories that Walt Disney considered as a feature film, so it is conceivable that a good amount of concept may have been done between that and the film's eventual release in 1989. Some of this early material may well have made its way onto the Misty LP. The story, recorded with a British cast, concerns itself more with pirates and treasure than the Andersen tale, but Misty has her share of undersea friends and even has the same red hair as Disney's Ariel (though Misty wears it in a 1960s-style hairdo).
