Was wondering about the voice for the opening character who is a street 'seller/magician' ..

Says Bruce Adler....  BUT I'd swear it was Robin Williams ., Do you think it is a pseudonym??

If you listen carefully  You'd say That is Robin Williams ..

Provided it has been entered there correctly, the Wikipedia entry for Aladdin indicates, that Bruce Adler is the singing voice only and Robin Williams does the talking...

Yes,, I should have put that in my thoughts as well, that it is the talking part or standup comedy that is Robin Williams.., I wonder why he did this as uncredited??

edit- Ah just reread the portion of the falling out between Williams and Disney over the provisions he implemented for receiving SAG of just $75,000 for his role in Aladdin

Do you think it is worth the shot to submit that for a contribution for the the roles of Robin Williams in Aladdin as Genie / Street Merchant  (Peddler)  ???
I think it is...

Do Robin Williams as street 'seller/magician' (uncredited, voice)  keep his credited role as the Genie separate.  It is not uncommon for animated voice actors to do serveral of the minor character and not be credited for those voices along with the voices they are credited with.

If anybody has a recording of Williams 2 hours passage at the "Actors Studio", Lipton talked about this and if I recall they mentioned the number of voices Williams does in this movie.

Adler is only the singing voice for the Peddler's song, not the Genie's.  That is Williams.
