In 1989, Carroll portrayed the sea witch Ursula in Disney's The Little Mermaid and sang the song "Poor Unfortunate Souls". In interviews, Carroll has referred to the role as one of the favorites of her career. She has since reprised the role in other forms of media, including the Kingdom Hearts series of video games, the spinoff television series, and in various Disney theme parks attractions and shows. She also voiced Ursula's sister Morgana in The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea, the direct-to-video sequel released in 2000.

Carroll also appeared on a variety of game shows including Celebrity Sweepstakes, You Don't Say, To Tell the Truth, Password and I've Got a Secret.

A member of the Actors Studio, she has also had a successful career in the theater, appearing in numerous plays including productions of Our Town and Sophocles' Electra. In 1990, she starred in The Merry Wives of Windsor at the Shakespeare Theatre at the Folger in the role of Sir John Falstaff, a balding knight with whiskers.

When Drama critic Frank Rich of The New York Times reviewed her performance he wrote: "Her performance is a triumph from start to finish, and, I think, a particularly brave and moving one, with implications that go beyond this one production. Ms. Carroll and Mr. Kahn help revivify the argument that the right actresses can perform some of the great classic roles traditionally denied to women and make them their own. It's not a new argument, to be sure; female Hamlets stretch back into history. But what separates Ms. Carroll's Falstaff from some other similar casting experiments of late is that her performance exists to investigate a character rather than merely as ideological window dressing for a gimmicky production."
