The Magic Lamp is the mystical talisman of the Aladdin And The Magic Lamp story from the Fifth Century book, A Thousand And One Arabian Tales. The gang goes in search for it in A Lad An' A Lamp, wishing for a variety of things. Stymie Beard wishes for chicken and watermelon, for his "pappy" to stay out of jail and for the fleas to stay out of his ears. Dickie Moore wishes he didn't have to take a bath every Saturday, for it to snow ice cream and rain soda pop and for the jinni to beat up Toughy. George Billings wish his parents would stop fighting. Uh-Huh Collum wants it to be only two days a week: Christmas and Saturday. Spanky McFarland wishes for a monkey, later adding that he wishes Cotton was a monkey. What few wishes they get are not magical but granted by coincidence and the pure hearts of strangers, but Mary Wade seems to find the real thing in the weeds and bushes of her family estate outside Greenpoint. She gets two wishes to be a child and then back again, her boyfriend gets a wish to regain his identity agan and Spanky McFarland finally gets one which he applies to Mr. Crutch, making him his age to beat up at his size. Spanky later puts on the story of Aladdin as a play in Aladdin's Lantern.
