Suggested correction: This is simply not true, it's seen in only 2 shots and both the pelvic and the dorsal fin stay the same size, the fish is further away in the second shot and the pelvic fin changes position and looks a different size but they use the exact same drawing. Even so, the dorsal fin of a fish can change size even when dead and shaken about by the salesman. And the tail fin is only seen in 1 shot.

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.

Trivia: Because Robin Williams ad-libbed or improvised so many of his lines, the film was ruled ineligible for the Adapted Screenplay category at the Academy Awards.

Question: What does Aladdin mean when he says: "Look at that Abu, it's not everyday you see a horse with two rear ends."?

Answer: Aladdin is referring to the person riding the horse as being a "horse's ass" in the way he is acting, thus the horse the person was riding on has two rear ends, his own and the rider.
