Aladdin claimed he could show “a whole new world” and he was NOT lying. Remember the character Steve Hale from Full House? He was DJ’s refrigerator raiding, not so bright but still lovable, alpha male boyfriend played by actor Scott Weinger. Well, that guy also played the role of none other than Aladdin in the 1992 Disney classic. Weird, right? I mean, he was such a tool bag on Full House. Constantly he’d say foolish things or make a fool of himself like a stereotypical meathead and you’d wonder how he was able to keep DJ Tanner as his girlfriend. Then, years later we come to realize that not only did he have DJ’s full affection and commitment – he was also riding magic carpets with the beautiful (in a sexy cartoon kind of way) Princess Jasmine which is truly remarkable if you ask me. Aladdin is one of the most awesome Disney characters of all time and the fact that Scott Weinger was able to be him while dealing with the Tanner family simultaneously is incredible. No longer will I see Scott Weinger’s face and relate it to the idiotic Steve Hale. Now, all I see is a ridiculously skilled multi-tasker who was juggling a human and a cartoon girlfriend. (If I could date one human and one cartoon character from the 90s at the same time it’d be Kimberly, The Pink Ranger and Hello Nurse…Or the Lola Bunny.)
