Western Animation / Aladdin and the Adventure of All Time

When a girl named Paige brings Aladdin to the future, she finds herself on an adventure that will take her through time and space. Released straight-to-video in 2000.

Roger Corman's second (and final) attempt at producing an animated film, after 1974's Down and Dirty Duck.


Aladdin and the Adventure of All Time contains examples of:

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Aladdin is repulsed by Cleopatra's advances when she's revealed to be obese and unattractive.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Henry VIII was a redhead in real life, but this movie depicts him with black hair.
  • Adaptational Villainy: The film depicts Scheherazade, the main protagonist of Arabian Nights, as an evil sorceress. She does turn good in the end, though.
  • All Myths Are True: The story of Aladdin is true.
  • Ambiguously Gay: "Blondebeard" seems to be this. In particular, he remarks how making stowaways walk the plank will "impress the boys".
  • Award-Bait Song: Time Stands Still (Reprise)
  • Bankruptcy Barrel: Two of Blackbeard's crewmates end up wearing barrels.
  • Big Bad: Scheherazade is the main villain of the film.
  • Bookworm: Paige is picked on because she loves to read a lot. It's not just the kids who tease her, but also the adults. Her grandfather is the only one who accepts her.
  • Contrived Coincidence: When Scheherazade sends the lamp to a random time and place in the future, it happens to appear right next to Paige.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The royal family punishes bad cooks by feeding them to lions.
  • Evil Is Petty: Seemingly the only reason Scheherazade is changing historical figures is just because.
  • Femme Fatalons: Scheherazade has some very long and sharp green fingernails.
  • Flat Character: Aladdin's girlfriend, the princess, just stands there not saying or doing anything.
  • Generation Xerox: In the end, Paige meets a boy named Alan who is implied to be Aladdin's descendant. May also be a Replacement Love Interest.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: There's quite a bit of female nudity, especially during Cleopatra's musical number when she becomes beautiful. Even if we don't see any nipples or genitalia, it's pretty risque compared to what's usually allowed in a children's animated film.
  • Heel–Face Brainwashing: Scheherazade is wished good in the end.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Aladdin. Anytime he does anything to hurt someone or make their life worse, he just shrugs it off and cracks a joke at their expense. Examples include him tasting a cake he and Paige ruined for Henry VIII and just saying "whoops" after unintentionally killing someone.
  • Limited Animation: One of the movie's biggest flaws. There are times where certain sequences are repeated multiple times.
  • Make Wrong What Once Went Right: In changing things back to the way they're supposed to be, the heroes make the world worse.
  • Off-Model: The film has very cheap animation, so of course there are a few inconsistencies in character design.
  • Redhead In Green: Scheherazade, who's a redhead, mostly wear green throughout the movie.
  • Secondary Color Nemesis: Green and purple feature heavily in Scheherazade's wardrobe.
  • Stupid Evil: Scheherazade transports the lamp to the future, where she thinks no one will find it.
  • Villainous Glutton: The whole royal family consists of mean and gluttonous people except King Henry, until Aladdin wishes him fat.
  • Villain Song: Scheherazade gets her own musical number in "Being Mean is My Kind of Fun".
  • Written by the Winners: Scheherazade has a fictional account of events written thinking people will automatically believe it just because it's written down.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Blackbeard, Cleopatra, and King Henry VIII all end up the way they're known in history in spite of how different they are from Wordsworth's historical records.
