Aladdin

Factual error: The animators have clearly tried to make all the writing in the film look Arabic. However in one scene we see the faces of Jafar and the Sultan as they read a scroll. Their eyes move from left to right; Arabic is read right to left.

Factual error: Jasmine and Prince Ali sit on top of the Chinese Imperial Palace to watch a fireworks show including bursts of Pinks, Greens, Purples and Blues. The only available colors prior to 1850 are white and pale yellow.

Factual error: During the Song "Never Had A Friend Like Me", Genie the waiter is writing an order in Arabic, but he writes from left to right. Arabic is written from right to left.

Mistakes

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?
