Episode 13.5: Some Guy on an Internet Forum

You know, just those damn trolls living under internet bridges.

Amazingly there’s barely anything expanded universe for Aladdin. In fact we had to go and dive into completely other properties just to find something to squeak out a 20 ish minute episode. It’s Hercules and the Arabian Night, written by Bill Motz and Bob Roth and aired February 10, 1999.


Show-notes:


0:48 See for yourself.
2:04 Firefely is a tv show created by Joss Whedon.
12:29 Here’s more about the non-Disney Icarus.
13:54 Limitless is a 2011 movie and 2015 tv show about a dude who unlocks his brain’s full capacity with a pill or some shit.
22:01 Basically no possible way that Thor: Ragnarok will be good.

Episode 13: Zero People Were Entertained

Aladdin made zero dollars because zero people saw it.

This month Kiyan and Dylan made the decision on what trilogy to watch solely based on how long it was. In hindsight, probably not the best idea. On the other hand, we almost ended up with Lord of the Rings one time, and that’s the complete opposite end of the spectrum. So we watched Aladdin, Aladdin II: The Return of Jafar, and Aladdin 3: King of Thieves. Surprisingly we didn’t watch 4l4ddin: Four Dudes Animate a Movie for $4.


Show-notes:


3:37 Making of Aladdin.
12:40 Apparently Disney decided to take Aladdin a different direction than its previous movies. Sadly I wouldn’t know.
13:52 Humiliate the Boy. Notice the younger Aladdin.
14:00 Also notice how it’s the last song Ashman ever wrote.
20:52 The Genie was one of the first animated movie characters to be voiced by a well-known celebrity.
21:11 Scott Weinger’s audition tapes featured his mom.
28:57 More about Return of Jafar and direct-to-dvd sequels.
38:07 God that ticking is annoying.
42:43 People really overplayed the supposed sexual content in these movies.
