Little Mermaid (Disney) - Fire-Fire!
Everyone is familiar with our favorite scene with Louis the chef and Sebastian the crab! Their famous battle is what I am referring too. Well, at the end of the battle, Louis goes after Sebastian with a butcher knife or something along those lines, crashes into a large shelf/pantry containing many expensive plates and bowls, all of which come crashing down on top of Louis, leaving Sebastian to escape. Well, I didn't know that ceramic plates could be flammable upon impact with a persons face! (just kidding). When the house keeper walks into the kitchen to see what all the ruckus is, one of Louis' whiskers is on fire! "Oh, gee, uh.......sorry, Madame. Eee." and he puts out the flame! No where in the scene did I ever see a candle or anything like that! So....I suppose this is just Disney's way of acknowledging the fact that spontaneous human/cartoon combustion is possible after all!

I never thought about it that way. Maybe Louie got too close to the stove where he was trying to boil Sebastian in the first place?

Yeah I think Louis just got too close to the stove. Stoves of that era all used real flame (no electric coils) and weren't all that safe. Even with today's gas ranges it's hard to avoid setting something on fire (I've got the burnt pot-holders to prove it). Louis wouldn't be paying attention to the stove while chasing dinner around the kitchen. He prolly caught his moustache on fire during the part of the battle we didn't see, when the camera was on the dinner-scene and the maid leaves to check on Louis when she hears crashing sounds.
