The trailer on ''Aladdin'', however, bills it as ''Walt Disney's Classic'' (its demo tape had the standard ''Classics'' diamond on its spine) and infamously announced it was the "last time that century" ''Pinocchio'' would be out of the vault (it was reissued on VHS and DVD in November 1999).

* This is the first animated feature to break the $200 million mark in box office, and it's also the highest selling title in the original ''[[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo Walt Disney "Black Diamond" Classics]]'' video series (though this is due to being the semifinal release in the line; after the next release, ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound'', it was left recumbent.)

* HeyItsThatVoice: Abis Mal is [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} George Costanza]]. Also counts under ActorAllusion as well, as he also acts as essentially an expy of the character in terms of mannerisms and personality.
** Iago is the Aflac Duck.
** In the original film the Sultan is [[Disney/TheRescuersDownUnder Krebbs the Koala]]. In the sequels and TV series, he's [[Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective Dr. David Q. Dawson]].

personality.



* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Creator/FrankWelker voices the Cave of Wonders using a voice strikingly similar to [[InspectorGadget Dr. Claw]]. Interestingly, he's also [[TalkingToHimself Abu AND Raja]].
** Title character's voice is [[FullHouse Steve Hale]] (D.J.'s boyfriend).
** Razoul (the head guard) is [[WesternAnimation/GoofTroop Pete]].
** [[Creator/CharlieAdler Gazeem the Thief]] is [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures Buster Bunny]], [[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife Mr. and Mrs. Bighead]], [[WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken Cow, Chicken, and the Red Guy]].
** Iago is Creator/GilbertGottfried (as if you can't tell).
** The Sultan is [[ErnestSavesChristmas a former Santa]].
** Jasmine's singing sounds suspiciously like {{Disney/Mulan}}. Except in the sequels where her singing sounds like {{WesternAnimation/Anastasia}}. Or [[WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess Odette]].
*** Musical theatre fans might recognize [[Theatre/LesMiserables Éponine or Fantine]], or [[Theatre/MissSaigon Kim]] in Jasmine's singing voice - aka Lea Salonga.
*** In the French version, Jafar is Dr. Series/{{House}}.
*** In Brazil, Jafar is also [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]]. And the announcer of every movie trailer. And in a bit of irony, had also previously sought a magic lamp dubbing the villain of [[WesternAnimation/DuckTalesTheMovieTreasureOfTheLostLamp the DuckTales movie]].
*** In Italy and Hungary, Jafar is [[WesternAnimation/{{Balto}} Steele]]
*** In Finland, Jafar is ''[[Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh Tigger]]'' of all, [[LivingToys er, people]].
** In Japan, Creator/AkiraKamiya is Iago and Creator/KoichiYamadera is the Genie. Should Jafar be [[Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective Professor Ratigan]].
** Do not forget the [[Main/ShinichiroMiki Japanese Aladdin]], and James from [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Team Rocket]]!
** An interesting variation in the German dub, crossing over into a {{Woolseyism}}: while Creator/RobinWilliams might have quit after the first movie, his German voice actor Peer Augustinski certainly didn't.
*** In the Swedish dub of the first sequel Genie didn't get a new voice actor, but Jafar did. In [[RuleOfThree Mexico, Brazil and Sweden]]: the Genie is [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Hades]].
*** Jafar's German voice actor Joachim Kemmer is also [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Sebastian]], [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Lumiere]], [[Disney/TheBlackCauldron The Horned King]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}} Rasputin]], [[WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven Red the Demon Cat]], [[Disney/TheRescuers Wilbur]] and [[Disney/{{Pocahontas}} Governor Ratcliffe]].
*** Vesa-Matti Loiri, the Finnish voice of Genie in the first movie and also a very popular comedian in his country, allegedly didn't think that a comedian telling another comedian's jokes would be funny, so he proceeded to essentially make his own gags very loosely based on the Genie's original lines. The end result was so good that one of the film's animators asked for special permission to send Loiri a thank-you drawing of Genie, and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome he actually got it.]]
** In Spain this was also the film that initiated star casting ''for dubs''. Basically after hyping for months that Robin Williams was the Genie, instead of hiring Robin's usual voice actor they did a ''second'' dose of star power marketing and cast Josema Yuste of comedic duo Martes Y Trece as the Genie.
*** Speaking of Spain, Ángel de Gracia (Aladdin) wound up on WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland 20 years later... as Noah!
** In Norway and Brazil, Aladdin is [[WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess Prince Derek]]. Speaking of the Brazilian Swan Princess: Odette is Jasmine, Jean-Bob is the Genie, and Rothbart is Jafar.
