General Gouda (voiced by Ron Perlman) is a character in Aladdin and the leader of the Odiferan army. Like all Odiferans, he loves to bash and smash things. He's not very bright, but he has a good mind for battle, and he does love to battle. He has no love for Aladdin and his company (they're too weak and they think!) or their methods of doing things, and doesn't hesitate to say so. He would gladly smash them, but knows that Prince Uncouthma is on friendly terms with them. He never really comes to like Aladdin, but sometimes finds he has to agree with the "frail one", and they part on not-hostile terms. His only appearances are in the episodes "Smells Like Trouble" and "The Way We War".
Gouda first appears when Aladdin, his friends, Uncouthma, and his family are at a fair ground playing a "ring the bell" game. When Aladdin falls backwards when he picks up a heavy mallet, Gouda picks it up and hits the game hard with it. He is then seen eating cheese with the other barbarians. He later gets breathed on by a stinker-breath lizard and he passes out, making his face green with purple spots on it, just like the lizard did to some other people. Near the end of the episode, after the lizards eat peppermint-covered cheese, Genie makes one of the lizards breath on Gouda and he wakes up. Gouda does not believe that Aladdin defeated the lizard, but then he does after Bud told him so.
Gouda and the other barbarians go to Agrabah and have a war. The reason he's having a war against Agrabah is that he thinks they stole their Most Sacred Crock of Cheese. At the end of the episode, he and the Odiferan soldiers find out that it was really Nefir who stole their cheese.
- His name is actually a comical adaptation of a cheese known as a Gouda.
