Episode guide
Episode 54: Armored and Dangerous
Episode 56: Black Sand


Saleen sinks a ship bound for Agrabah with a valuable statue to lure out Aladdin, and places a curse that turns him into a shark so she can have him all to herself. As Genie, Abu, and Iago have difficulty getting her necklace to reverse the curse, they realize that Saleen's sidekick, the octopus Armand, might be the key needed to get the necklace to cure Aladdin, as he has developed a grudge of being pushed aside in favor of Aladdin.


After Saleen sinks a Golden Paiush Statue, Aladdin and his friends go on a search for it to retrieve it. Armand later attacks the gang while Saleen throws a starfish that was hanging around her neck at Aladdin. It leaves a pink star-shaped mark on Aladdin's chest.

After Armand ruins the ship, the gang get on the island the statue was on. While Genie and Iago argue about who's in charge, Aladdin and Abu go find the statue. Aladdin ties a rope around him, leaving Abu to watch it while he's underwater getting the statue. But he gets caught by Armand and ties the rope around him.

Transformation into shark:

Abu senses that something is wrong and goes to Genie and Iago. The three see Aladdin swim like a fish. Later, when Abu goes back to Aladdin, Aladdin's feet then inflate and then turn into webbed versions of them which Abu sees and freaks out other. Aladdin sees this as his hands start to transform as well, and although he tries to prevent them they inflate and turn into webbed hands as well, resulting in Aladdin screaming. After going to Genie and Iago, Aladdin starts growling and starts to turn into a shark.

Aladdin now lying on the floor starts to shake and throb, as he lifts his body up in massive pain as he lower's his body but moves his legs closer to his chest. He then moves his legs back as his legs combine and form a black tail. His pants combine as a hole is around Aladdin's tale.


Saleen later takes Aladdin to the ocean with her. Aladdin turns into a shark completely as Saleen orders him to do underwater acrobatics.

Armand becomes jealous of Aladdin and tries to remove the starfish from Saleen, but Aladdin pushes him out of the way. The two are about to fight, but Saleen quickly stops them and tells Armand to leave them alone. Genie, Iago, and Abu see that Saleen's starfish turned Aladdin into a shark. Saleen makes Aladdin attack the gang, but Aladdin fails.

Genie, Abu, and Iago suggest that they have Armand help them remove the necklace to save Aladdin. After removing Saleen's necklace, Abu breaks the starfish in half, making the pink star-shaped mark on Aladdin's chest disappear and Aladdin turns back into human.

Genie then puts Aladdin on land.


Aladdin is lying on the beach we see the his head and his gills. As soon as Genie removes his hand from under Aladdin's neck Aladdin starts to transform back immediately. Aladdin's head frame by frame starts to get smaller as Aladdin's nose starts to shrink along with the rest of his body. A outline starts to appear on the top of his head as his face gets smaller. The outline gets bigger a few frames. The outline then becomes black as his head gets smaller as his blue skin starts to change. Evantually the black part becomes hair and gets longer, Aladdin's teeth also starts to get smaller along with his mouth not being so long. Eventually his body becomes brown as his face though still being shark like is more human as his hair has become more long and flowing like it used to.

We then pan down to were his fin's are. His body is grown and is underbelly is now greyish, and his starfish symbol on his chest is not as revealing. Aladdin's fins get longer as the web part of them spread other the front of the fins. They then become squarish shaped as they continue to grow until another sharp edge grows on the front of the transforming fin. The fin's become longer as the skin were the webbed stuff grows longer and sharper, until they become human hands but webbed.

Aladdin's underbelly were the starfish is also transforms. His underbelly starts to disappear as Aladdin's chest starts to become more flat and human like.

At dusk, while the gang is leaving with the Golden Paiush Statue, Armand removes the fish bowl from Saleen and the two become friends again.
