References to Aladdin in Gargoyles
In "The Mirror" when Demona tells Puck to get rid of humanity, the trickster tells her it's not Aladdin's lamp to demonstrate his limits. Though more accurate to other tellings of Aladdin the line was made to reference the Disney Afternoon series as it aired during the same time as Gargoyles.
The Aladdin episode "The Animal Kingdom" is similar to "The New Olympians" as both deal with a human character (Aladdin and Elisa) happening upon an area inhabitant by another race of sentient beings, only to be kept prisoner for fear of said human to prevent them from informing others of their existence. Both end with the human characters proving themselves, albeit in the case of Gargoyles Elisa is seen as an exception to some of New Olympus while others according to The New Olympians spin-off remain fully prejudice towards humanity. Additionally both episodes included Michael Dorn voicing a character (Brisbane and Taurus) also slow to trust any humans.
