''Shazzan!'' was a [[AnimatedSeries cartoon]] created by Creator/AlexToth and produced by the Creator/HannaBarbera company for Creator/{{CBS}} back in 1967. It featured a giant genie named Shazzan who served two American kids, a boy named Chuck and his sister, Nancy, who had found a pair of magical rings in a cave and were transported to a MagicWorld that resembled the one from the Literature/ArabianNights tales. Each of the kids had one of the rings that, when touched to each other (and the word "Shazzan!" is spoken) summons the genie to grant their wishes -- anything except being sent home; they were required to find Shazzan's true owner first (with no clues provided, even by Shazzan himself). The genie also gifted them with an InvisibilityCloak, a bag of dust that can create illusions, and a magic rope. The series followed the two (and their winged camel, Kaboobie) as they traveled this strange world, [[TheDrifter helping those in need along the way]].
