So I watched Aladdin this morning on Disney Channel and this popped up in the end ;-;

The opening scene with the street merchant was completely unscripted. Robin Williams was brought into the sound stage and was asked to stand behind a table that had several objects on it and a bed sheet covering them all. The animators asked him to lift the sheet, and without looking take an object from the table and describe it in character. Much of the material in that recording session was not appropriate for a Disney film.
"Combination hookah and coffee maker, also makes julienne fries! It will not break! It will not- …. it broke."
that line used to just kill me as a kid and now it’s better because it was unscripted and he probably broke the prop
Did you know? That the Genies “Tourist” outfit at the end of Aladdin was actually based off an outfit that Robin Williams wore in the “Back to Neverland” short that was filmed for MGM studios?
The closest I will get to meeting Robin Williams. I am extremely saddened to hear the passing of, who I think is, one of the greatest actors to have ever lived. Let us all remember his incredible performances and magnetic energy. Rest In Peace Robin Williams, forever a legend.
