"Bad Mood Rising" is the eleventh episode of Aladdin, originally aired on September 6, 1994.


Aladdin, Jasmine and company are on their way to a neighbouring kingdom called Quarkistan. Jasmine reminds Aladdin to take this mission seriously, but Aladdin reassures her and reminds her that they'll be together forever. As the gang arrive, they are shocked to see that Quarkistan is a wasteland; the trees are dead, there are no plants, and the weather is bad. Suddenly an earthquake accures. Aladdin notices that the ground beneath him is cracking and he starts falling.

The scene switches to the palace of Quarkistan. A spoiled, kid king named King Mamood tells his assistant, Wazeer, that there's a spec in his royal milk. Wazeer tells him that it's just a little spec, but King Mamood gets angry, which makes the weather even worse. Wazeer then leaves to get him another glass of milk, outside the throne Wazeer is annoyed with the king's behaviour and hopes that the people from Agrabah cheers him up or all of Quarkistan is doomed.

Back to the gang, Genie is keeping the earth apart as a steel beam and Aladdin is revealed to still be alive as he hangs onto dear life. However, the rock soon gives away and Aladdin starts falling towards the spiky ground and Genie can't keep the Earth apart for long. Carpet is able to rescue Aladdin just before the ground closes and while Aladdin and Jasmine happily reunite with each other, Genie (still as a steel beam) lands on Iago.

At the palace, Wazeer explains that the king has been in a dreadful mood ever since his birthday party as nobody told him. Waster reveals to everyone that Quarkistan is an enchanted land as whenever Mamood is happy, the weather is beautiful, but when he's angry, the weather is bad. He shows them treasure that he will give to anyone who will makes the king happy. Iago and Abu having become fascinated with the treasure are able to convince Aladdin and Jasmine to try and let them cheer up the king in order to gain then treasure. Everyone tries to make Mamood happy, but instead he gets bored until Aladdin juggles many swords and the weather becomes nice. However, Aladdin is having trouble with the swords and accidentally pins Mamood. The king gets angry and the weather becomes bad again. Jasmine then tries to apologize saying they were only trying to help, but Mamood doesn't care and now wants the gang to leave, but Jasmine gets an idea. She and the others pretend to leave, but peeks the king's interest about a story of a golden prince. She tells Mamood a story about how a golden prince met the king of the genies. The story makes Mamood happy and the weather becomes nice again.

As Jasmine finishes telling the story, Mamood replies saying it was great but orders that she tell him another story the next day. Wazeer is delighted that the kingdom is safe, while Iago starts to collect the treasure as the reward, Wazeer then reveals to everyone that they must keep Jasmine forever, much to everyone shock. Aladdin, outraged, says that he will never leave Jasmine, not even for all the treasure in the world, much to Iago's sadness claiming his life is a curse. As the gang are about to leave the palace to return to Agrabah, King Mamood tells the guards to stop them, and reveals that Princess Jasmine will be staying with him from now on, much to Aladdin and Jasmine's shock and horror.

The guards trap Carpet and Genie, while securing Aladdin. Aladdin and Jasmine try to reason with Mamood, but his mood only becomes more angry and calls for more guards to capture everyone while at the same time the weather becomes more and more dangerous. Aladdin, Jasmine and the others are able to free themselves and escape from the palace, while escaping the kingdom, the group now see how bad Quarkistan has become do to the king's mood. Jasmine blames herself for the kingdom's current state but Aladdin tries to reassure Jasmine telling her it's not her fault, suddenly the group are nearly struck by lighting and somehow cause Carpet to become unconscious. As the start to fall from the sky the group is starting to head straight towards a volcano, but luckily miss it.

As they are recovering from their impact they run into a mob of villagers, who take them to nearby caves. While there Aladdin explains everything that had happened and now finally learning the full story the villagers blame Jasmine for the kingdom's condition. But one of the villagers sticks up for Jasmine tells everyone that it's not really Jasmine's fault and says that it's not right for them to force other people suffering just as they are. Suddenly one of the villagers alerts everyone that king has arrived. King Mamood arrives on a horse and demands they hand over Jasmine otherwise the he will become more mad than he already is. Not wanting the innocent villagers to suffer just because of her, Jasmine decides that she has no choice but to go with the king in order to secure their safety. Aladdin tries to stop her from going, but Jasmine sadly tells him that though she may be a princess she knows that her own needs comes second to those of the people and she leaves with King Mamood. Aladdin sadly looks on to see Jasmine leave with the king while the weather is restored to normal.

Late at night, Aladdin and the others are now depressed having lost Jasmine. Iago on the other hand is more excited that they may finally get the treasure since they made the king happy. Aladdin however doesn't care about the treasure and only expresses how upset he is that he lost Jasmine because of the king's temper tantrums. Genie tells Aladdin not to be so hard on the king as he doesn't know how miserable he's making everybody causing Aladdin to get an idea. The next day at the palace, Jasmine is telling King Mahmoud the story of how she and Aladdin fell in love, suddenly they see Aladdin approaching the palace.

Mahmoud allows this and Aladdin and Jasmine miserably say goodbye to each other, while expressing their love, which starts to moves the king.

Aladdin then asks the king if Jasmine's mother and father are also allowed to say goodbye which surprises Jasmine he mentioned her mother. Outside the throne room, Genie turns Iago and Abu into Jasmine's "parents" so they can say goodbye to her as well.
