There was a television production of a musical version of Aladdin shown in approximately the early seventies. I can't confirm the channel, but I have a strong suspicion it was WNEW in New York, which was at the time a MetroMedia affiliate. It featured a song by Aladdin's mother, sung to Aladdin, featuring the line "you're an idle ragamuffin".
It's not the Cole Porter version from 1958 -- that one was allegedly never rebroadcast, and does not appear to contain such a song. Also, the one I saw was in color.
Is the production I saw ringing a bell with anyone?
