The BP oil spill has been going on for over 70 days now, and the tragic body count of injured or dead marine life has been climbing. But, it was only recently when people began to understand the sheer variety of sea creatures that have been affected.

Classic cartoon characters that live in the ocean, such as Spongebob Squarepants and Ariel from Disney’s The Little Mermaid are just a few characters that are at high risk.
