Christopher Daniel Barnes,
Aladdin, the clever hero of Agrabah, continues his adventures with the help of his fiancee Princess Jasmine, his pet monkey Abu, Magic Carpet, Iago the greedy parrot, and of course his best friend the semi-cosmic Genie.
I'm not a big fan of these straight to Disney sequels and prequels, but the Hercules TV series was so funny that I thought it wouldn't hurt to see the video. It never left my local video store anyway, so why not. I admit, I wasn't all that surprised when it turned out to be 3 episodes being told as stories, however the way it was done made me want to throw something at the TV. The idea wasn't THAT horrible and I really enjoyed the episodes themselves, yet there is no excuse for the animation in the between scenes. It was so bad I'd close my eyes and just pretend those parts were a radio program. The acting was great and the dialogue kept everything pretty well to one story line, but it was obviously thrown together in such a hurry that they didn't even realize very few people would buy it. Just so it is clear that I didn't totally hate this video, I repeat that I really enjoyed the 3 episodes chosen for the tape and the fact that Susan Eagan and Tate Donavan were still in it.
