Haha, yes, 'shrill' and 'loud' are just the right words!  :D
Ooh, fasten your seatbelt, because Andersen's Little Mermaid is completely different that Disney!!!  I almost cried!  :)

There's a great T.V. adaptation from Shelley Duvall's Fairy Tale Theater.  It's pretty much the original story.  I believe this is it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMuBPz4O5Oc

Oh, sure. Classic fairy tales often have a dark side and hidden meanings that only grownups (and not even most of them) can understand. They are taken quite seriously in my literary studies, for example.
