sand and camels and turbans! that sure is racist!
They changed "Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face" to "Where it's flat and immense, and the heat is intense".
it's a story that takes place in the middle ages, everyone was barbaric and chopping off parts of eachother... just because they haven't grown out of it in the middle east doesn't mean it's a racial thing
Hey takewithfood, let's play a game. I'm going to present two categories, and you tell me which one "some middle eastern countries sanction penal mutilation" belongs in:
WHIMSICAL FICTIONS THAT WERE NECESSARY FOR THE PLOT OF "ALADDIN":
sorcery and alchemy
ELEMENTS OF THE SETTING THAT RELATE TO THE WORLD IN WHICH WE LIVE:
many middle eastern countries have deserts
many middle eastern countries have camels
many middle eastern countries have sultans
It's just one line in one song, dude.
Rephrase, for those who missed the point: Why can't the world of Aladdin be more thuggish and cruel as fictional element of the setting?

is there another version besides this? this is the only version i've ever seen.

You know, it's a shame Disney ruined some of their best movies with awful cartoons based on them. After watching Alladin every day after school I couldn't possibly watch this and enjoy it with all the humor having long since been driven into the ground.

I remember how Disney got protested by the Arab anti defamation league when the movie first came out. Disney promised to ask for their input if they did a sequel.
Disney lied, and they made sequels but never contacted those people. Disney is so awesome.

I remember this version. I never knew they changed it.

This isn't even their worst case of sing-song "racism".
