Corrected entry: The rule of entering the "Cave of Wonders" spoken to Aladdin by the Cave itself is, " Touch Nothing But the Lamp". It is not until Abu snatches the ruby in the Lamp Room scene that the Cave qualifies the original edict to, " You have touched the forbidden TREASURE". Aladdin and Abu have touched the Magic Carpet plenty of times before this point.Mike Wotton
Corrected entry: When the Sultan is flying on the magic carpet, Iago the parrot crashes into a pillar and gets his teeth knocked out. In the next shot of Iago, his teeth are all intact.
Corrected entry: Genie and Magic Carpet are playing chess. Genie tells Magic Carpet, "okay, move". Carpet only has a king, a bishop and two pawns. Carpet picks up the king and moves it fully across the board to capture Genie's queen and put him into check, (possibly checkmate). A king may only move one space at a time in any direction, therefore, that move was illegal. Afterwards Genie says, "I'm being beaten by a rug", and does not question the legality of the move.Mike Wotton
Corrected entry: The jacket for the original home video VHS release of Aladdin has flaws in the images on the front and back covers. The huge image of Aladdin on the cover is shown in his "Street Rat" clothing riding the Magic Carpet with Jasmine behind him. This never happened in the movie. Jasmine only rode the Magic Carpet with Aladdin dressed as Prince Ali or wearing his closing scene "Honeymoon" attire. Another error is that Jasmine is wearing a green outfit that was always shown as blue in the movie. The back cover shows the Oasis scene incorrectly. Aladdin is at the table from the "I'm your Maitre'd" part of the "Friend Like Me" song. Genie is holding the microphone from when he first asks Aladdin his name. Genie is also wearing the "Let's make some magic" magician's outfit which is missing its giant grey cuffs.Mike Wotton
Corrected entry: When Abu is on the bursting lava rocks in the Cave of Wonders, right before the last two rocks blow up you can hear him say "Holy shit", if you turn your volume up.
Corrected entry: When Jafar does his little ditty he says "Say hello to your precious Prince Ali" and transforms Aladdin into his beggar self. Jasmine acts shocked, but she already knew that Aladdin was "the boy from the marketplace," so she shouldn't be surprised to see him dressed as he was in the marketplace.
Corrected entry: When the thief is first going to go into the Cave of Wonders, the lion has bottom teeth all the way across. When it shows him stepping into the cave, the bottom teeth are gone.
Corrected entry: Sultan is concerned that Jasmine find a suitor before her eighteenth birthday because "He isn't getting any younger". He seems to be 70 years old in the movie. (Disney had no official "age" for Sultan.) The law stated that a Princess must marry a Prince before her eighteenth birthday. Jasmine is now just shy of 18 years old herself. So Jasmine's mother must have married the Sultan when she was seventeen years old to follow the letter of the law and the Sultan was fifty two years old? And that presumes that they had conceived Jasmine the first year they were married. (Sultan's 70 years minus Jasmine's apparent current age of 18 is 52 years old). Well, as Sultan said himself, "Her mother wasn't nearly so picky".Mike Wotton
Continuity mistake: The tiger bites the seat off the suitor's trousers, allowing the viewer to see his polka-heart boxers. When we see the tiger in the courtyard, he has a part of the same boxer shorts in his mouth. So if he bit off the seat of the trousers, shouldn't he have purple cloth in his mouth? (00:11:45)
