  • Season 1 Episode 1: Aladdin

  • On the carpet ride, Aladdin and Jasmine fly past a full moon. A moment later, they see a half moon reflected in the water.

  • Although the script on the scrolls appears to be Arabic, the Sultan and Jafar's eyes move from left to right as they read it, not right to left as they should have.

  • When Jasmine first went into the market place and the guy tried to cut off her hand for stealing, Aladdin stopped him and gave the sword to Jasmine. She then put it behind her back but, when she bowed to Abu she didn't have it.

  • When growled at by Raja, Aladdin says "Good tiger, take off and go," but everyone thought that he said "Good teenager, take off your clothes."

  • Why is it that Jasmine is angry at Aladdin when he is pretending to be Ali and she discovers the truth? When Jafar told her that Aladdin had been killed she had been crying her eyes out. But when she realizes Ali is actually Aladdin she gets angry at his trying to deceive her. If she had been crying over him earlier, she would have been more like "Oh....You weren't killed after all!" instead of "Why did you lie to me!?"

  • Prince Akmed's pants (but not his boxers) are torn when he storms out of the palace yet immediately after this Raja has a piece of Prince Akmed's boxers (but not his pants) in his mouth.

  • Season 1 Episode 2: The Return of Jafar

  • In the scene wear Aladdin gave Princeess Jasmine the Diamond flower, she puts it in a vase. Abu tries to take it but takes the white flower. Then it goes back to Aladdin and Jasmine talking; when Jasmine moves to hug Aladdin, both the white flower and the Diamond Flower (both Aladdin gave to her) are still in the vase. Then it goes gone then back to Abu reaching for the Diamond flower as it is back in the vase.

  • Season 1 Episode 2: Bad Mood Rising

  • Roughly half way through the episode, Jasmine's outfit changes to her normal blue green color and then back to pink in the next scene.

  • Season 1 Episode 2: The Return of Jafar

  • The Genie has his golden manicles on his wrists through this movie and the rest of the series, even though they were removed when Aladdin wished him free in the original movie.

  • Aladdin was wearing his white-robe outfit during the whole dinner and Iago shpiel as well as the 'Forget About Love' song. However, he SOMEHOW switches back to his 'street-rat' garbs right after we see Abis Mal sneaking over the wall and such. (This probably has to do with the first nitpick in this list ( that the animation for RoJ was done in thirds) and this is obiviously a 'switch-over' so to speak.)

  • This movie was done by the same animators, writers, etc who did the Aladdin TV show, and it becomes especially apparent if you watch the show and then watch the movie. The same music is used for both. An even worse job handled in the film is the animation; it was done in thirds; each 1/3 handled by a different animation house(one from Austrailia, one from Japan, etc...). Once Abis-Mal climbs over the wall, the drawing style changes; once Aladdin is framed the style changes once more. It's painfully obvious. Oi.


    Fortunately(or unfortunately depending on how you look at it), this was the movie that started the whole direct-to-video sequel market. Since Disney now had more confidence direct-to-video things could sell, they did a better animation job on all future movies; including the third Aladdin film. If that one was done in halfsies, I can't really tell.

  • There is one giant plothole in this film. Jafar, in his scheme to get Al dead without actually having to do it himself, plans to frame Aladdin. So he sends him and Sultan out on a little excursion, and meanwhile rips up a turban and plants it as "evidence" that Sultan was murdered by Al. When Al comes back, he's accused of murder, and that makes sense, right?
    WRONG...this really made no sense and shouldn't have really worked. Everybody there saw Sultan and Aladdin leave. He couldn't be killed in that building if he wasn't present to have it done to him. If Aladdin comes back sans Sultan, and you're still assuming he did it, that wouldn't mean he killed him in the palace, it would mean he did it OUT THERE. Making the "turban evidence" a total obvious fraud. Sloppy...

  • Season 1 Episode 4: Do the Rat Thing

  • Iago still had his beak when he was a frilled lizard, but frilled lizards don't have beaks!

  • Season 1 Episode 8: Garden Of Evil

  • The metaphor that Jasmine was trying to tell Aladdin and the others is that for Arbutus, trees and plants are like his children, and very precious to him as Jasmine is to her friends and her father.

  • Season 1 Episode 11: Some Enchanted Genie

  • This episode and "Moonlight Madness" was released on the VHS Aladdin and Jasmine's Moonlight Magic.

  • Abis Mal considers wishing for the sunken treasure of Cordumare, which he attempted to wish for in The Return of Jafar.

  • Abis Mal seems surprised that genies can't kill, but he learned that in The Return of Jafar.

  • Eden's outfit resembles the outfit worn by Barbra Eden of I Dream of Jennie. Also, the character Eden could also be a reference to Barbra Eden.

  • Season 1 Episode 14: Plunder The Sea

  • When Aladdin pulls Genie's lamp out of his pocket his pants are gray; then, they switch back to his normal white in the next frame.

  • Season 1 Episode 17: Fowl Weather

  • Nitpick: The character model of the boy who works in the fig orchard is re-used later as Aladdin's childhood friend, Amal.
