'The Little Mermaid' VHS Detail You Need To Sell It For Thousands

Alright, pay attention people! This movie could mean this difference between you continuing to have student loans, to paying off a small portion of that $40,000 debt!

Oh, sorry, this article is supposed to be fun not depressing.

So you wanna get rich, do ya?


Yeah, we all do.

Whether it's so we can finally show those mean kids in high school we're actually worth something, or it's because you're not me and just like money.

But how the heck can we do it?


That's the age-old question, isn't it?

How does one get rich in a small amount of time... if only there were some sort of plan that would allow us to gain copious amounts of money in no time at all...

Is there a name for that?


Nah, probably not. But the question still remains: what can you do to get rich quick?

The lottery is for suckers, gambling is a slippery slope and lawsuits can be finicky.



Yeah, I get it. If I had the answer do you think I'd be sitting here, talking to you now?

Probably, because I love my job, but I'd be doing it on a beach in Kokomo, not on a ratty mattress below a bridge.

You could ask your parents...


But they're already pretty ashamed of you, so there's probably not a lot of weight in doing that.

No, we're going to need to do this on our own, I'm afraid.

Why not try a lemonade stand?


I mean, those have a tendency to make some money for kids!

Then again, the FDA might not approve of it, especially if you're a 24-year-old man living under a bridge like me.

There's always panhandling.


But that would be super degrading, and if people found out you weren't actually homeless and actually had a whole mattress then it's not only degrading, it's really embarrassing.

Trust me, I know.

Plus, I'm not very good in the kitchen.


Usually, I drop the pans, I have a hard time washing them and then they dent or stain, it's just not pretty the way I handle them.

There's gotta be another way...

Why not try...


Getting rid of some of your old stuff? I mean, it couldn't hurt.

Some people find all sorts of treasures that are worth money in their old stuff.

You can trade in video games...


But if you go to Gamestop you're going to have a hard time getting more than 3 cents for that brand new copy of Super Mario Maker 2 you just bought.

There's books...


These days on Amazon you can sell some of your old books for like, real-world cash!

You, of course, have to set up an account, put the books online, wait for someone to buy them, then ship them out...

I fell asleep already.


I know, sounds like a lot of work.

Okay, why not try a garage sale? You can sell those old books (hopefully quicker), some stinky old clothes and hey, some VHS movie tapes as well...

Not so fast!


Wait, before you put those Disney VHS tapes in that box labeled "25 cents", take a look at them.

Especially the ones between 1984 and 1993. Take a long, hard look...

Do any of them look like this?


If so, start playing Celebration by Kool & The Gang, and tell the debt collector who keeps calling you for student loans to flip off and celebrate!

You're rich, baby!

How, you ask?


Well, those diamond sided tapes, aptly named "The Black Diamond tapes" are really rare and hard to come by.

Which means you'll get some of that sweet, sweet collector money.

How much?


Well, how does about £13,950.67 for the whole collection sound? Which, converted into real money is about $17,568.08.

And some individuals go for like, $4000 dollars. See Beauty and The Beast.

What about 'The Little Mermaid'?


Yes, I know you read the title. Well, if you have the black diamond version of the film, Ebay's average says you can still sell it for about $500.

Not quite Kool & The Gang worthy, but you know.

If you don't have the diamond side ones...


Don't worry kid, there's another chance. If you have the one with this cover, you could sell it on eBay for like $300.

Do you want to know why?

Because there's a big wiener on the front.


Oh yeah, they apparently hid a penis on the cover of this VHS for children.

If you look really closely, you can kind of make it out... if you really squint, I guess.

If you have the Diamond/Wiener combo...


Then oh baby, you're in for a treat. Some people have reported that those copies can go for upwards of $3,200.

Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is Kool and The Gang worthy.

Don't have "The Little Mermaid"?


Don't worry, I'm here to make sure you still get paid, baby!

So join me in a little adventure where we check out the prices for some other VHS titles...

'101 Dalmatians'.


Were you a Cruella DeVil fan as a kid? Have the black diamond version of that? Well then my friend, you could be raking in up to $6,000. Jeez!

Bring your good times and your laughter too!

'Alice In Wonderland'.


This is the jackpot, ladies and gentlemen. An original copy of this VHS will fetch you... wait for it...


Oh yeah, that's almost a cool $10,000. Imagine how many mattresses you could get with that...

Did you find any?


If so, then let's party!

It's time to come together and make some much-needed cash!
