Release and reaction

This short was the last of the three Popeye Color Specials, which were, at over sixteen minutes each, three times as long as a regular Popeye cartoon, and were often billed in theatres alongside or above the main feature. Unlike the first two films, Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp is more Disney-esque in plot and pacing, and does not make use of the Fleischer Tabletop 3D background process. Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp takes some liberties with the source material; notably, the 1992 Walt Disney Feature Animation version of Aladdin took many of those same liberties, including simplifying the numbers of genies and removing Aladdin's family from the plot.
