The C&DRR chapter of the crossover kinda compromised on the humans vs. animal people bit. At the start of its story, it had animal people, but after the first page or two, when it began proper focusing on the Rescue Rangers and their enemies, the story kept the faces of the full-sized people hidden, showing only their legs and torsos while their faces were cut off by the tops of the pages (a la Nanny from Muppet Babies). This allowed at least the museum security guards in the story to be vague and ambiguous as to whether they were normal humans like in the show or animal people like in the first couple of pages and in the other chapters of the crossover.

 

Though, as I myself have been trying to go through all these old shows recently for a big project of mine, I've found more and more instances where normal-looking humans have made some small appearances in the shows that featured cities populated by animal people.

 

However, I'm currently taking a break from all that this week in order to binge watch the old Aladdin TV series (on thewatchcartoononline.tv since the episodes on KimCartoon all have their video and audio completely out of sync with each other). I gotta say, that show is better than it has any right to be. I've already gotten through 37 episodes in the past two days and can't get enough of it. So far, very few episodes have been lackluster, with the majority being very entertaining. Especially Iago and the Genie, providing their special blend of 20th Century wit and comedy to the Arabian folktale setting of Agrabah. I don't eveb care that it's not Robin William voicing Genie, Dan Castellaneta still keeps Genie as fun and endearing as he always is. And any episode with Jason Alexander and James Avery as Abis Mal and Haroud Hazi Bin is a joy to watch, as those two make an excellent comedy duo. I only just got to the episode that debuted Mirage (I'm watching the episodes in the production order given by Disney Wiki, rather than viewing them in broadcast order), so the villains so far before her have been mostly funny rather than serious (barring a couple of one-off world-ending monsters who were killed off by their respective episodes' endings). Mirage, however, I remember from watching this show as a kid to be one of the more serious recurring villains, so I'll look forward to seeing more of her in action. I haven't gotten to any of Mozenrath's episodes yet either, so I'll also have him to look forward to as well. But getting back to Mirage, I noticed that, unlike the rest of the people in this show, she's not a normal human but is instead an anthropomorphic cat person, like those of the Mickey/Donald/Goofy-related shows. I guess I'll just have to keep watching to see if that' ever explained or not. But anyway, this show is awesome and is a crying shame that it's never come to DVD beyond a small handful of Jasmine-centric episodes being released as part of the Disney Princess DVDs. And not that I mind that (Jasmine's a great character in this show, some of her finest moments are in here rather than in the movies), but the whole show itself getting a full DVD release would be amazing.

In a world of normal humans? Wouldn't the Egyptians of the Aladdin/Hercules world have also been normal humans?

 

 

(Yes, Aladdin and Hercules had a crossover that put them in the same world)

Have you seen Egyptian mythology? They were all furries.

(There were actually multiple cat-goddesses, of which Bast was only the most notable. [Shout-out to my girl Mafdet, who was basically the goddess of cops, bounty hunters, and those who deliver mice to their humans.])

I just remembered. During the song sequence of "A Whole New World" in the first movie, Aladdin, Jasmine, and Carpet fly through Egypt at one point and witness an Egyptian working on the Sphinx. Said Egyptian was a normal human man.

My thinking with Mirage was that she was some sort of magical entity of some sort, stronger than a genie but clearly not as strong as Chaos was. And yeah, she was an interesting character - we didn't get many hints about her story, but what we did have was compelling.

I would put Mirage as either a sorceress or deity rather than typical Egyptian. The only real past I remember getting from the show was at some point her and Phasir were once an item.

She does live in the ethereal world of Morbia, which seems to be in its own reality separate from the "real world" that Aladdin and friends live in. She might have originated from that world, even, which would make her a trans-dimensional enemy of Aladdin.

In her debut episode, Iago did call her "evil incarnate", though according to Genie, she was not the first being to bear the title (10,000 years ago, before Genie was trapped inside his lamp, "evil incarnate" was "a hyper-intelligent wombat with a forked tongue").

Okay, so, in my continued viewing of Aladdin, I just finished an episode which featured a kingdom populated entirely by anthropomorphic animal people who talk, wear full clothing, and have a complete human-like society and civilization, making Mirage no longer stand out as much (even if she may be from another world anyway).

Finally reached the episode that features Chaos (who is basically the Aladdin equivalent of Q from Star Trek or Mister Mxyzptlk), in which he provides some additional, if subtle, insight as to what Mirage is, exactly. He calls her an Elemental.

 

Elementals are magical creatures that are, naturally, tied to the four classical elements. Aside from Mirage, two types of Elementals have been seen in the show: Earth Elementals and Water Elementals. Of these two types, only one of each kind has been featured (that is, in the episodes I've watched so far). The Al Muddy, which are humanoid beings comprised entirely of mud, and the siren named Saleen, who sought to steal Aladdin from Jasmine and make him her personal boy-toy and slave.

 

As for Mirage, it has not been indicated as to which element she, as an Elemental, would be affiliated with. 

 

When Chaos refers to her as such, he does call her an "evil Elemental", but one could argue that both the Al Muddy and Saleen are evil as well. And Chaos did refer to Mirage's kind in the plural form ("You know, the problem with you evil Elementals is that you're always obsessing!"); likewise, both the Al Muddy and Saleen were obsessed in their own objectives as well: The Al Muddy have one-track minds of attacking anyone and everyone they encounter, and Saleen was singleminded in her goal of stealing Aladdin for herself. Ergo, though Mirage is definitely evil, I wouldn't take Chaos's descriptor of "evil Elemental" as any proper name for her Elemental type (e.g. - simply "evil Elemental" rather than "Evil Elemental").

 

She's certainly neither a Water nor Earth Elemental, nor does she strike me as much of a fire or air creature. With how much pure magic she uses, as well as her residing in an ethereal realm, my first guess would be that her element is aether. But according to Wikipedia, only the main four elements are related to Elementals. But then again, this is fiction and is allowed to be bend the rules of real world mythologies and such, so... *shrug*

Nothing to do with the cartoon really but I feel like "Mirage" would be a good name for someone who is half fire and half air Elemental. Because heat and air is what creates an actual Mirage in the air.

Honestly, it's like Disney views A Goofy Movie and its related media as some sort of red-headed stepchild.

 

I'm still shocked that Goof Troop even got a complete (minus one episode, that is) HD digital release on Amazon Video at all, let alone while its DVD release (in standard definition) is still incomplete by one volume (two out of three have been released).
