This simpatico crab with a peculiar accent stepped into the klieg lights with the Disney movie, The Little Mermaid, about the love between a mermaid and a human.
Sebastian, the red Trinidian crab, was the servant of King Triton whose mission was to keep the little mermaid away from humans. Aside from being a crab, Sebastian is also known for his Caribbean accent. He’s one of the well-known characters of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale called, The Little Mermaid.
The Little Mermaid is a 1989 American animated film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale of the same name.
Sebastian, is assigned to watch over Ariel, the little mermaid, and be sure she does not visit the surface again where she can get in contact with humans who are considered predators. Sebastian tries to convince her that it’s better to live under the sea than in the human world.
Sebastian the red Trinidian crab is the servant of King Triton and the film’s deuteragonist. The character was developed solely for the film, and is not derived from the original Hans Christian Andersen story. In his appearances in film and television, Sebastian is voiced by Samuel E. Wright. When the film opens, Sebastian is announced as being the “royal court composer”, and conducts a concert that King Triton’s seven daughters are supposed to perform.
Panama City Hall decided to display Sebastian at the highly visited Cinta Costera. Take a look at this appealing red crab at the Villa Navideña in Panama City, Panama. Here we go.
