Production Notes:

Adapted from Osamu Tezuka's self-published manga adaptations.

Aladdin was modeled after French movie star Jean-Paul Belmondo.

Erotic elements deleted from many modern versions of the Arabian Nights were included in this film.

Tezuka invited several famed novelists (including "Silence" author Shusaku Endo and science-fiction writers Yasutaka Tsutsui and Sakyo Komatsu) to contribute their vocal talents.

Reportedly, a 100-minute English-dubbed version was made for foreign distribution. This lacked several scenes, including one of sex between Badli and a crocodile, and another involving a lesbian princess.

The original version of this film is said to have run for 150 minutes, thus making it the longest cartoon ever produced.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Alternate Title: "千夜一夜物語."

English Titles: "Arabian Nights," "1001 Nights," "One Thousand and One Arabian Nights."
