Way back in 2002, Disney and Hasbro released the Disney Wild Racers line of die cast cars. At the time, they were sold in themed packs of two characters. The cars themselves had names in addition to vanity plates. It was during this time that I thought of different sets I wanted to see. I recently found the drawings I did and tweaked them just a little bit. One idea I had was for an Aladdin animal sidekick set. Aladdin's friend, Abu the monkey, just had to be a Disney Racer.
I've decided to name each car like Disney Wild Racers did with their cars.
The car for Abu is Grease Monkey Klepto Riff Raff Street Rat Rod.
The Iago car is Molting Motor Mouth.

Jafar's henchman parrot, Iago, is the perfect foil for Abu.
Tramp from Lady and the Tramp is a favorite character of mine. The Tramp car is called Dashing Radical Mongrel.

Though they share no screen time, I chose Si and Am the cats to duel with Tramp.
The Siamese Cat car is called Twin Tran SiAm.

I liked the idea of representing both characters on one car.
Eventually, the Disney Wild Racers line was discontinued by Hasbro. The toys live on as Disney Racers, sold at Disney theme parks. These days, the focus is on Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel characters.
