This incarnation of Sinbad is due to marry the beautiful Princess Farah (Jane Seymour), but when he returns to her kingdom he and his crew are ambushed by monsters. The creatures are dispatched relatively easily, but the princess reveals to Sinbad that their troubles aren't over. Her brother, Prince Kassim, was about to be crowned Caliph when his wicked stepmother Zenobia cast a spell that turned him into a baboon (animated by Harryhausen). If he isn't turned back into a human soon, Zenobia's equally wicked son will be crowned Caliph instead. Sinbad and his crew, with Farah and Kassim in tow, head out to consult the great sorcerer Melanthius. He and his daughter Dione join the adventure as they all head for a lost, fertile city beyond the Arctic wastes where a magical energy that can reverse the curse can be found. All the while, Zenobia and her son, via a boat rowed by a clockwork minotaur, are in hot pursuit.

* LastVillainStand: With her son dead and her plan in ruins, Zenobia possesses the smilodon for one last ditch effort at killing Sinbad and his crew.

* FrazettaMan: The troglodyte is a strange midway point between this and OurOgresAreHungrier, being a huge, hairy, horn-sporting caveman with bestial features whose language is so close to ape-like that he can communicate with the baboonified Kassim. In stark contrast to both of his parent tropes, though, he's a purely benevolent figure, once Melanthius convinces Sinbad's crew that he's scared of them and not out to kill them.
