Dinky Doodle in the Arabian Nights
8 December 2012 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Dinky Doodle scoots into the story of Aladdin and the Magic Lamp in this silent cartoon.

Dinky was an early brainchild of Walter Lantz, so to speak, intended as Bray's answer to Fleischer's Ko-Ko. The earlier ones in the series, including this one, began with a hand drawing Dinky, just like the hand that drew Ko-Ko; and Lantz would appear in many of them, interacting with the cartoons like Max Fleischer.

This is a pretty good one, although the modern viewer may have the usual issues with how society has changed and what villains are appropriate. The evil magician who uses Aladdin to fetch the lamp is neither white nor fat, but is a Chinaman named One Lung Sam; when he goes through the "new lamps lamps for old" routine he appears as a Jewish peddler.

Still, if the viewer can remember that the past is a foreign country where they do things differently, there is some pleasure in this cartoon.
