1001 Arabian Nights Story Line: Mr. Magoo’s ancestor, Abdul Aziz Magoo, is the uncle of Aladdin, and falls in love with a princess.

In a distant Middle Eastern Kingdom, a young Aladdin lives with his nearsighted and stubborn uncle, Abdul Azziz Magoo. Mr. Magoo owns a lamp shop. Believing that Aladdin is growing up to be a lazy and irresponsible man, Magoo encourages Aladdin to get married.

The wizard Wazir has been siphoning money from the royal treasury and manages to persuade the bankrupt Sultan to ask his daughter to marry the richest man in the land. His daughter is Princess Yasminda and the richest man in the land is Wazir.

During a royal procession, Aladdin and Yasminda fall in love. In his quest for absolute power, Wazir seeks the genie of the magic lamp, sealed in a magic cave. He needs Aladdin to get it for him but he is unable to obtain the lamp after it falls back into the cave with Aladdin still inside. Aladdin meets the genie and escapes the cave with a chestful of treasures. Magoo then takes the treasure to the palace as a dowry, and manages to unintentionally spoil Wazir and Yasminda’s wedding with his naivety and nearsighted physical handicap.

The genie conjures a palace and wealth for Aladdin, which is enough to persuade the Sultan to agree to let Yasminda marry him. However, the vengeful Wazir steals the lamp and the allegiance of the genie, exposing Aladdin as a fraud. Aladdin is sent to the scaffold.

Trivia: 1001 Arabian Nights (1959) was the first feature-length cartoon produced by maverick cartoon studio UPA and was also the first non-Disney American animated feature since the Fleischer Bros.’ HOPPITY GOES TO TOWN.
