Never Had A Friend Like Me
In Disney's Aladdin, the Genie is voiced by Robin Williams, who rarely lacks for something to say. This scene is when Aladdin rubs the lamp and is first introduced to the Genie, which takes more than 4 minutes. This is something that probably could be done rather quickly but Robin Williams takes hold of the reins and we are off on a raucous ride into his amazing imagination. Much of the anarchy is displayed in what Robin Williams references in his self-introduction. A microphone, Groucho Marx and Duck Soup, Arnold Schwarzenegger and tuxedos are just a few examples of his explosive personality that do not fit within the context of the movie.
