Ho! Ho! Ho!
19 July 2003 | by bcolquhoSee all my reviews

I, too, find this show a guilty pleasure. Shazzan is what Robin Williams' genie in the Disney version of Aladdin, aspires to be, and it's a good show. A classic of '60s animation. It begins with an announcer intoning "Inside a cave off the coast of Maine..." It's the story of Chuck and Nancy. They're a brother and sister. They find a mysterious ring in a chest. The ring is in two halves. When joined, it forms the word "Shazzan." Shazzan's a genie complete with mohawk, goatee, and Mr. Clean earring. They can't be returned home by Shazzan until they deliver the ring to its rightful owner.
