I love the peddler at the beginning of Aladdin. Some of his lines are my favorites from the film. The peddler is actually voiced by Robin Williams, who also provided the voice for Genie. Originally, the peddler was intended to be the same character as Genie. It would have been later revealed in the film that he was in fact Genie, which explains why the two characters have the same voice. If you notice, both characters have similar characteristics such as their eyebrows and beard. The peddler is also the only human in Aladdin to have only 4 fingers (just like Genie).
