Storyline

Aladdin is a child labourer 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 May Not Be The Aladdin Cartoon You Think
14 May 2008 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Don't confuse this story and the Popeye cartoon labeled "Aladdin And His Wonderful Lamp." This is another early 1930s Celebrity Productions Comicolor cartoon based on a famous novel.

They did a number of these takeoffs such a this one, Don Quixote, Sinbad the Sailor, Ali Baba, Jack And The Beanstalk, Robin Hood, etc.

Whatever, this one doesn't measure up to any of the above cartoons. It has a few quick moments of humor but nothing memorable and it's more a "cute" little story than a comedy. Unfortunately, it's supposed to be the latter so I can't really recommend this one. The color is decent, especially for a cartoon so old, but it just isn't funny nor entertaining.

There is a lot of action in here but not the kind that will keep you enthralled. It winds up being more noise than anything else. It's not of the company's best.
