It is some time long ago in Old Peking. Aladdin the son of Widow Twankey who owns the Peking laundry, falls in love with Princess Wong, daughter to the Emperor. The Emperor insists he is not worthy enough even to speak to his daughter unless he is rich. Ethelazar, Aladdin's cousin offers him riches if he helps her. Aladdin agrees but is tricked into finding a magic lamp for Ethelazar. However, Ethelazar cannot have the lamp immediately and the Slave of the Ring with the Genie's help allow Aladdin to escape from Ethelazar's clutches and return to Old Peking where he marries the Princess. Wishee Washee Aladdin's brother is tricked into helping Ethelazar as she seeks revenge, and even Aladdin'two aunts Widows Twinkey and Twonkey are unable to stop the Princess being kidnapped.
