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.
This spin-off to Disney's Hercules follows Herc's many labors during the years he spent training how to be a hero under the tutelage of satyr Philoctetes. Olympian Gods and Goddesses as well as Hades and Pegasus often visit him.
The thing that Disney has done a billion times in every single one of their
movies such as Aladdin, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mulan, etc. Is those
annoying sidekicks with one-liners that the kids admire and the adults only
like them because they are voiced by people such as Robin Williams and
Murphy. But every time they bring in characters like this, they just have
make spin-offs of the sidekicks, of which I don't know how they get made.
Timon and Pumbaa which is a spin-off of Lion King is fairly decent, despite
some of the same tiresome Looney Tunes style Cartoony situations with other
characters who won't be remembered. The side shows to Timon and Pumbaa,
which are the one's with those Hyena's are not so bad. The Rafaki Baboon
episodes are very blah. Note to anyone who has kids: Be careful of getting
your kid hook on pointless spinoffs, for there have been things worse than
this. Timon and Pumbaa in themselves make a great comedy
