This awesome all over print t-shirt features graphics of the Genie of the lamp from the Academy Award-winning Disney film, Aladdin. The shirt also includes quotes from the movie, such as "give me some tassle", and "did you rub my lamp?" Aladdin was an animated retelling of the classic Arabian folktale of the same name, and the opening song of the movie, titled "Arabian Nights", even gives a nod to the story's origins. The film was a huge success, and it even became the highest-grossing movie of 1992. Audiences were enthralled by the colorful story and original score, but many people best remember the movie thanks to Robin Williams' iconic portrayal of the magical, wish-granting Genie.
The film's directors, John Musker and Ron Clements, originally wrote the role of the Genie with Williams in mind. They needed a way to convince the actor to agree however, and so they asked one of the animators, Eric Goldberg, to animate a reel of the Genie performing some of Williams' old stand up. The comedian agreed to the role and even offered to do it for scale pay rather than his typical asking fee, on the condition that his name and image not be used for marketing and that the Genie not take up more than 25% of space on any advertising artwork. Disney wound up breaking both of these conditions, which created a rift between the studio and the actor. Disney attempted to mend the relationship, by sending Williams an original Pablo Picasso painting, but what the actor really wanted was an apology, which he eventually got after Joe Roth took over as Disney Studios chairman.
