TELL ME ABOUT IT
When the genie said this line, most of us started to relate to him. After all, being a genie is just another job, right? And just like you, the genie isn’t too enthusiastic about his job sometimes.
The coolest part about the genie is the fact that he blends magical powers so perfectly with humor. It’s one of the hallmarks of a good Disney character, and it’s why so many people love the genie.
It was right about this time when we realized just how much it must have sucked to confined in a lamp for so long. If you thought Aladdin’s story was tragic, he has nothing on the genie.
No matter how bad it looked for Aladdin, the genie always seemed to find some witty remark to lighten the mood. Yet another reason why he won over so many Disney fans.
If there’s one thing we can say about the genie, it’s that he was filled with love. And this was something the genie was never afraid to express -even if it meant puckering up when you least expected it.
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?
The genie was also pretty fashion-conscious. He was never one to hold his tongue when he thought someone was wearing We love that the Genie was never afraid to be camp. Or to tell you that those pants you’re wearing belong to another century.
Where would the genie be without the magic carpet? And of course, the person at the wheel was none other than the genie himself. He showed us all that he had some serious skills when it came to steering that thing away.
Of course, the genie was voiced by none other than Robin Williams, one of the comedic masterminds of our generation. With improvised impersonations of people like Rodney Dangerfield, this Disney character was always going to be a memorable one.
Some of the genie’s quotes were so witty that it took years for us to finally understand them. And when we did, it added a completely new dimension to this surprisingly complex and sophisticated Disney character.
The last best quote on our list comes from a moment when the genie was acting as a rather unorthodox cheerleader. Once again, he leaves us rolling on the floor laughing.
