Alan's thoughts
Howard Ashman and I had a version of “Aladdin” that we scrapped about 4 years before the approved version was released in 1992.

There were three sidekicks; Babkak, Omar and Kassim, who provided a Hope-Crosby Road Picture tone to our story telling. Aladdin even had an actual living mother, to whom our big ballad (“Proud of Your Boy”) was sung. Now, with our Broadway adaptation, we’ve gotten to reinstate a lot of the material that we lost way back in the late ‘80s.
