"There's no escape!"
—Flotsam and Jetsam

Flotsam and Jetsam are two moray eels who serve Ursula, the sea witch. They first appeared in Disney's The Little Mermaid, and have appeared in Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II. They are two of Disney's most famous evil lackeys. They were both voiced by the late Paddi Edwards in the movie and by Corey Burton in the games.

Story

Kingdom Hearts

The two play a similar role in the game as the movie. They taunted Ariel into thinking that Ursula will let her venture to other worlds if she traded the trident for her dream to come reality. Ursula sent Flotsam and Jetsam off to search Triton's palace for the Keyhole, but they were unable to find it. They later fought Sora and co. in Ursula's lair. After the fight, they curled up and die in a mist of ink.

Kingdom Hearts II

In Kingdom Hearts II, Flotsam and Jetsam have returned probably the same way Ursula did. They only briefly appear in the song-battle 'Ursula's Revenge'. During the song, the two eels tried to suffocate Sora, but were destroyed when Donald and Goofy pull them off of Sora, allowing him to finally destroy them with a blast of magic from his Keyblade.

Description

Not much is known about the two eels, only that they have served Ursula for some time. They serve as both pets (or familiars) and minions to Ursula, usually acting as spies in her evil plans. Like an evil twin symbol, they each have one glowing yellow eye (Jetsam's on the right, Flotsam's on the left) that they use to see things others can't. The true powers and origin of their eyes is unknown, but, as seen in a scene in The Little Mermaid, they may be used as viewing portals by Ursula, meaning she can see what they see.

Origin

In the film, Ursula used Flotsam and Jetsam to manipulate Ariel into visiting Ursula. They used their sly and cunning ways to convince her into thinking she will live forever with her love, Prince Eric. They were both killed when one of Ursula's wayward shots of the King Triton's Trident hit the pair of eels.
