Trivia

Loosely based on a myth of a genie of the lamp from the classic novel A Thousand and One Arabian Nights about a young boy Aladdin and a genie of the magic lamp. Much like Aladdin, Adil is also a teenager, only now his masters are a modern Western family. See more »

Crazy Credits

Adil conjures up the names of the cast members but can't do it quite right: Katie Sheridan's name deflates and flies around, Vicky Longley's name comes out mixed up and has to be kicked into place, Jordan Metcalf's name is too heavy and falls on Adil's foot & Adam Morris's melts on his head.

Excellent
22 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The programme itself is a little odd but will be greatly enjoyed by under 12s.

Considering the basis it has been put together special effects are not bad and the scripts are done simply enough to carry this off, particularly considering the audience it is designed for.

The episode with "Rascal" was quite funny and is a good example of the entire series.

Aside from this Katie Sheridan (Sophie Norton) is absolutely lovely and sparkles on screen.

I imagine she will have many dads glued to the TV and I hope to see a lot more of her on other programmes (TV Companies take note).
