OK, so common rumor among fans: Aladdin and Mozenrath were supposed to be brothers (which makes a heck of a lot of sense). This obviously makes Cassim their father. The Forty Thieves made their big goal to get the Hand O' Midas. From {{Wikipedia}}:

[[WMG: The destruction is the Cave's choice, ''not'' a Self-Destruct-Button]]
* Tying into the "Touch Nothing But The Lamp" guff, not only does the Cave ''know'' if you've touched something, it can ''deliberately'' make exceptions for the Carpet and for stubbing your toe. It could blow up any time it pleased, but it's kind of got a job to do. Still, it knew the very moment that Abu picked up that gem. And if Abu tried to take one, he'd try to take more. DIE! DIE! DIE! Yes, the Cave is a JerkAss. Those are the deals when you're looking for magic lamps that can change time and space.

gold. Aladdin comments that it looks like a worthless hunk of junk, after all. Jafar's lamp is described as being shiny and new, although the material is unspecified.

They clearly had history together -- the Genie greets him as soon as he leaves the lamp. The rug is also clearly sentient and, judging from what the Genie said, several millennia old.

They Carpet is just so expressive, so brave, so loyal that it kind of ''deserves'' to have been a real person just because that person would be the nicest person ''ever''. Genie and Carpet clearly had history together -- - the Genie greets him as soon as he leaves the lamp. The rug is also clearly sentient and, judging from what the Genie said, several millennia old.old, potentially from Egyptian or even 'Atlantean' times.



*** Well, [[Film/TheBigLebowski he'll forever tie the room together, man.]]
** If Carpet made the same promise Aladdin made, then broke it, then Genie might actually feel hard-done-by enough to make that last wish go sour. You saw how hurt he was when Aladdin changed his mind.

it. Or it just returned to the Cave.



[[PurpleProse One fateful night]], in the gloomy light of an [[ChekhovsGun oil lamp]], he made an unholy pact with an evil wizard seeking the powers of the gods themselves. When said wizard got cursed into being forever the slave of the lamp, the carpet merchant received his own [[IronicHell ironic punishment]]. He would no longer step on others.

[[WMG: The Carpet was a greedy carpet merchant who wished to be able to fly]]
* Carpet was a carpet merchant who acquired the lamp. He promised to free Genie, but broke his promise and wished to be able to fly. Genie was so hurt that he gave Carpet an IronicPunishment. When he got over it, Genie realised what a horrible thing he'd done, but he couldn't fix it - not only could Carpet not speak, not only were the three wishes up, but only mortal humans could make wishes anyway. Genie promised to never be a JackassGenie again, and eventually they made up.
* It can also explain why he was so eager to help Aladdin even when they didn't know each other - he would be free to pursue a way to turn him back.

[[WMG: Carpet and Iago would make a great couple]]
* Face it, they're both enchanted, and Iago talks all the time while Carpet never talks. Iago's cunning and clever with a good streak while Carpet is kind and clever with a bit of a sneaky streak - it's one of those things where opposites might just attract.

[[WMG: The Sultan originally became sultan of Agrabah through his marriage to Jasmine's mother.]]
At one point when he's grumbling about Jasmine refusing to choose a suitor to marry, he mutters to himself "Her mother wasn't nearly so picky!" If Jasmine's mother also had to follow the same law and choose a suitor, then she must have been the previous Sultan's daughter. The Sultan therefore originally became Sultan through marriage, the same as was planned for "Prince Ali" in the movie.
