Storyline

Aladdin is a child laborer who works for a guy that exchanges "new lamps for old". This guy swaps a "new" lamp for 2-3 replacement old lamps, then brings back the old lamps for Aladdin to polish and make look like new. One day Aladdin sees a princess riding by as he looks out the window, and he falls for her. But then he must return to his lamp polishing. As he polishes one of the old lamps, a genie comes out and offers Aladdin the opportunity to escape the drudgery of his life. Of course, Aladdin's wish is to marry the princess, but even with the genie's help he encounters a few obstacles, including that of the Sultan accidentally swallowing his lamp.... Written by Julie Anne Elliot (Shira)

This Aladdin seems to get many wishes, not just three.
9 February 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The film begins with a nasty trader trading folks new lamps for their old ones. He's not doing this to find the magic lamp...he just uses his little slave boy (Aladdin) to clean them up to resell them. However, as Al is wiping one of them clean, a Genie pops out and begins granting him wishes....and Al uses this to try to get the Sultan's daughter in marriage (which is odd since they both are kids). Unfortunately, the slave owner returns and fights Aladdin for the lamp.

This is not a great cartoon by any stretch. But the animation and color are very nice and the film is modestly entertaining. And, fortunately, unlike Ub Iwerks' poorer films, it's not saturated by cute singing characters.
