Treated as the lowest of the low, all street peasants are forbidden to set eyes on Princess Jasmyn. and so, with every pair of smelly socks he puts through the mangle, Aladdin dreams of a life where he is rich enough to look upon a woo the Princess.

As luck would have it, Aladdin’s mysterious long forgotten Uncle Abanazar arrives on the scene promising all the treasures in the universe… If only Aladdin will agree to rescue a dusty old lamp…
