Aladdin (movie) reached the age Aladdin (character) today. Seventeen years ago today was the US wide premiere of Disney’s Aladdin. I can hardly imagine that time has flown by so quickly.

Well to celebrate this joyful day I uploaded a collection of scans I made from the Art of Aladdin book I purchased some months ago

A futuristic looking commercial for Aladdin toys at McDonalds happy meals around 2004.

Promoting the Disneyland musical Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular

Mattel Aladdin and Jasmine dolls commercial around 1992. I have Genie sitting on a shelf for quite a few years now.

Kellogs Fruit Loops came with Aladdin coloring changing spoons in the mid 90’s. Check out the animation at the end looks like original to me.

More crunchy nugget free stuff came in a box of Captain Crunch because buried beneath was an Aladdin Fortune Top featuring Genie.

Burger King had Aladdin coloring chancing cups with the meals. Kids should come back often to collect all four. The tough rap guy is kind of lame now but back then it was cool.

The Kellogg’s Corn Flakes is probably the best known breakfast product. Like the others it had an Aladdin tie-in. They had a nice looking box and original animation in the TV commercial.
