"Aladdin" is a film of wonders. To see it is to be the smallest child, open-mouthed at the screen's sense of magic, as well as the most knowing adult, eager to laugh at some surprisingly sly humor. To achieve either would be something, to manage them both in the same film is next door to amazing. Based on the classic tale from the Near Eastern collection known as the Arabian Nights, "Aladdin" (El Capitan, citywide in two weeks) is the latest animated musical from the Disney empire.

Tubs, one of the stars of "The Shaggy Dog," is sitting behind the driver's seat of an old hot rod posing for publicity photos. But the shoot isn't going well. The Old English sheep dog doesn't mean to be difficult. It's just that his big hairy paws keep slipping off the steering wheel. Trainer Joe Camp walks over and puts the paws of the good-natured Tubs back on the wheel, and the photographer continues. When the session ends, Tubs relaxes in the shade with a huge bowl of fresh water.
