* WhatAnIdiot: The nephews and Webby have three wishes each, quite literally the power to change the world twelve times over. Even with the Genie's limitations that he can't grant "miracles", he also clearly can grant some very powerful wishes as shown by what Merlock forced him to do in the past. The only things they wish for are [[WastefulWishing a baby elephant, a sundae, and to bring a roomful of toys to life;]] two of those wishes even had to be, predictably, undone by more of their wishes because of how fast they spiraled out of control, when there are so many other things the wishes could have been used for. For example, they don't even ''try'' wishing for their parents to come back, [[{{Nephewism}} presuming there's a real reason why they're never around.]]


* ValuesDissonance: Even for 1990, the negatively stereotypical depictions of Middle Eastern people, which play a large part in the plot of this film, were horribly outdated (this may also explain the film's sporadic home video release since), seeing as they were based on adventure films from the 1940s which were even ''less'' racially sensitive. At the time, political correctness was only just becoming a cultural norm and, therefore, this wouldn't have been considered as big of a problem[[note]]By sheer coincidence, the movie was released ''exactly one day after UsefulNotes/TheGulfWar started''[[/note]]. As the years pass, it becomes less and less likely that general audiences would tolerate such characters in a family movie, even after the huge wave of racist backlash towards any and all people of Middle Eastern descent following UsefulNotes/TheWarOnTerror and ''especially'' not after TheNewTens, when even the slightest problematic interpretation that can be made of the depiction of nonwhite cultures in movies both old and new are vocally criticized on social media by more racially sensitive viewers.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Disregarding some of the more racially insensitive aspects of his character, Dijon is and otherwise beloved villain. He was popular enough to [[CanonImmigrant appear in the last season of the TV series]] and, later, a significantly less racist version of him named Faris D'jinn in [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017 the 2017 reboot series]].

* ValuesDissonance: 1990 was perhaps the last time a family movie would have had such negatively stereotypical depictions of Middle Eastern people. Not only was this just as political correctness was becoming a cultural norm, but the characters themselves are taken right out of adventure films from the 1940s which were even ''less'' racially sensitive but remembered with fond nostalgia by general (read: predominantly white) audiences at the time (it didn't help that the film was released ''the day after UsefulNotes/TheGulfWar started''). Even after UsefulNotes/TheWarOnTerror sparked another huge wave of racist backlash towards any and all people of Middle Eastern decent in America, absolutely no mainstream America audience would find such depictions socially acceptable in a family film (which may be why it wasn't re-released for several years, though Creator/Disney+ doesn't give it a ContentWarning); less so after TheNewTens, when even the slightest problematic interpretation that can be made of the depiction of nonwhite cultures in movies both old and new are vocally criticized by more racially sensitive viewers.
