"SandSwitch" is the twenty-third episode of Aladdin that aired on September 30, 1994. It is the twentieth episode to air in syndication.


One night, Sadira has a new spell and this time she is more determined than ever, believing that Aladdin will finally be hers and casts the spell over Agrabah. The next morning, Aladdin, Genie and the others are waiting near a fountain, Aladdin asks Abu and Iago how they're doing since he's noticed they're awfully quiet. Iago agrees, replying that he and Abu feel that reality itself has somehow been altered, but soon brush it off. Aladdin reassures them that everything seems fine, but Genie begins teasing him saying everything will be better when the princess arrives. Iago starts to grow impatient waiting for Jasmine, claiming to have better things to do than to wait around for her.

Suddenly, Sadira arrives and she is shown to be wearing Jasmine's clothes. Iago and Abu are not happy seeing her and also notice her clothing. However, Aladdin instead comments that Sadira looks beautiful and kisses her much to Abu and Iago's shock. While Aladdin and Sadira leave, Iago is shocked and confused to what he witnessed, but Genie instead isn't surprised and says that he's happy for Aladdin and... The Princess!. Iago becomes even more surprised and confused but believes everyone is playing a joke. Surprisingly, Genie informs Iago that Sadira is Aladdin's fiancée. While Abu is furious, Iago is even more confused, seeing that everyone not only believes that Sadira is the princess, but is more surprised that she is engaged to Aladdin and starts to feel sick. Genie notices and begins checking his health, but seeing nothing wrong, he brings Iago over to Aladdin and tries to explain his behavior. Iago stops Genie and assures everyone he's fine. Once everyone leaves, Iago whispers to Abu they should keep quiet until they figure out what's going on.

Later, as everyone arrives at the palace, the Sultan asks how Aladdin is and wonders if he's nervous, but Aladdin assures him that he's happy with his decision. Iago is suspicious about what they're talking about and starts to feel nervous himself. Sadira calls to Razoul, (but mistakes him, calling him Raoul) and orders him to bring them grapes. Aladdin is a little surprised, but as Sadira tries to explain, Rajah appears and noticing her presence, leaps to attack her. Aladdin protects Sadira, jumping in front of Rajah and is angered at his behavior. Genie notices and points out that his behavior is similar to Iago and Abu's, making Sadira realize that the spell she cast didn't work on the animals. Sadira makes an excuse saying that Rajah hasn't been fed yet and tells him to wait in another room. Sadira then persuades everyone go to the gardens while she "feeds" Rajah.

With everyone gone, Sadira goes after Rajah and magically confines him in a cage, afraid that he will make everyone realize the truth that she and Jasmine switched places. However unknown to Sadira, Iago and Abu have secrelty followed her and overhear her plan and witness her trapping Rajah in a cage. She apologizes and assures him it's only temporary and goes off to search for Iago and Abu. While Sadia searches for them, Iago begins to panic but immediately starts to think of a plan, while Abu frees Rajah. Iago realizes that if Sadira and Jasmine switched places then that can only mean that since Sadira is the princess then Jasmine has now become a street rat. Iago suggests they go find her, until he notices Abu trying to free Rajah and starts protesting afraid that Rajah will eat him. However, upon hearing Sadira approaching they make a truce and Iago begins to help Abu free him. Sadira returns but witnesses Rajah, Abu and Iago escape the palace.

Sadira calls out to Razoul again and orders him to catch the animals and bring them back. While Razoul leaves, Aladdin arrives and tries to ask what's going on, Sadira makes another excuse. Aladdin becomes suspicious, pointing out she's been acting strange. Sadira assures Aladdin she is just excited about their wedding tomorrow, revealing that was what The Sultan and Aladdin were talking about earlier. Meanwhile, on the streets of Agrabah, Rajah causes a panic among the people, while he, Abu and Iago try to escape from the palace guards. They take a short break and Iago expresses his annoyance that they can't hide with Rajah getting so much attention. Suddenly, they realize there are no guards and believe they've lost them, only to discover they have fallen into a trap and are caught in a net. Razoul orders them to be taken back to the palace, revealing "Princess Sadira" will handle them personally.

Razoul and the guards are about to take them away, until they are suddenly attacked and have barrels thrown over them. Their savior is revealed to be none other than Jasmine, who is now dressed as a street rat. Jasmine draws out a knife and frees them, telling them to escape. Overjoyed, Rajah and Abu reunite with her while Iago is relieved, believing that their troubles are over. However, they discover that Jasmine is same as everyone else as she actually believes herself to street rat and doesn't remember them at all. Iago tries to tell her the truth but she refuses to listen and tells them to leave her alone while mentioning the wedding parade approaching and leaves. The others become curious about the parade and finally realize that Sadira and Aladdin are getting married soon. Iago begins to lose hope, believing that their lives are over, but Abu tells him to go after Jasmine and convince her of the truth. Iago doubts that he'll be able to convince her, but after being threatened to be eaten by Rajah, he agrees to try.

Later on as the the people of Agrabah are occupied with the royal wedding parade, Jasmine starts to steal from them, until Iago appears and interrupts her. Jasmine asks Iago why he's here while she continues to steal from the crowd. Iago again tries to tell her the truth and says out loud that she should be in the parade because she is really the princess. This causes the crowd to take notice, but Jasmine quickly hides Iago away, losing their attention. Jasmine only gets more angry and admits she now regrets rescuing him. Suddenly, the announcer announces the arrival of Sadira and Aladdin, who are riding on top of an elephant. Iago asks Jasmine how she doesn't know Aladdin, but as she tries to protest she takes closer look at Aladdin and begins to feel drawn to him and finally agrees to go to the palace with the gang.

At night in the palace gardens, Jasmine and others have sneaked in without the guards noticing. Iago doesn't think this is a good idea, reminding they had only recently escaped. Jasmine feeling drawn to Aladdin says she needs to see him again, even if it's only for a moment. While Jasmine and the others sneak through the corridors, they spot Aladdin and Sadira in one of the rooms where Sadira is trying on bridal dresses. Suddenly the Sultan appears, revealing he's lost and asks where is his bedroom. After quickly giving him directions he begins to leave, but stops for a moment and starts to feel drawn towards Jasmine. He begins to wonder if they've met before and while Jasmine answers no, the Sultan agrees and reveals he will be giving Sadira away at her wedding, but admits if he had another, he'd want her to be as beautiful as Jasmine. However, for a brief moment, Jasmine calls him her father, appearing to have regained some of her memories.
