Jasmine: The Badass Princess of Agrabah

To this day, Jasmine is still my favorite Disney Princess. I love how badass she got to be in the TV series. One of my all time favorite episodes was "Secret of Dagger Rock" when she faces off against Mozenrath to rescue Aladdin. I love how she disguised herself as one of the guards and tried to blend in by acting all macho. Keep in mind this was three years before Mulan came out!

I related to Jasmine because of Rajah. I didn't have many friends, and played with stuffed animals. To me, Rajah was like a stuffed animal that had come to life.

They had all the best pets, Rajah, Apu, Iago, and Carpet. It was an introvert pet lover's dream.

This explains why I loved the movie so much as a kid. It spoke to me on a deeper level than I realized. As someone who was always drawn to the sidekicks, this one had a plethora of sidekicks for me to enjoy.

As much as I love her, I have to admit that Jasmine could be really petty sometimes, like in the episode where she basically uses that Prince Uncothma just to make Aladdin jealous.  That was a pretty low moment for her.  I really hate the trope of when a girl dates another guy just to make her boyfriend jealous; I expected better from her.

But then again, she and Aladdin were teenagers.  I like that the show wasn't afraid to show their flaws.
