Earthworm Jim Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves is a movie spoof of Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves. It was produced at Film Roman, with animation done overseas at Yeson Entertainment.
Ali Baba does not appear in this film, but the band of Forty Thieves do, led by Abu Hassan (Evil Jim playing a "role"). Earthworm Jim, Peter Puppy, and Snott hear of Hassan's attack on a town in Arabia and fly there to capture him but their plane crashes as they enter a desert in Arabia. After getting lost in the desert, the group happens upon the town where the Forty Thieves attack. The Thieves abduct Peter and Snott, and Abu Hassan leaves Jim hanging from a chandelier after failing to win a battle of wits with him (during which, demonstrating a magic trick, Jim relieves Hassan of his long underwear, remarking "Abu Hasn't got 'em any more!"). Jim manages to break free and takes a camel to Ali Baba's secret cave, where, failing to remember the magic word of "open sesame!", he breaks in using his earthworm falcon punch move.
Inside the cave, Jim sneaks past the guards and attempts to free Peter and Snott. He confronts Abu Hassan and demands that he give the Forty Thieves' stolen jewels back to the people. He is apprehended and thrown into a shark pit. Just before being eaten by a shark, Jim tangles the shark's teeth together, and the shark goes back down into the water. Jim uses his worm whip to get right back up from the shark pit. He then defeats Abu Hassan, and all forty of the Thieves (counting them as he does so). The Thieves and Hassan are chained and made to drag a cart filled with the stolen jewels, Jim, Peter, and Snott, back to town, where the townspeople await them with open arms. A cow fell on Evil Jim, and the episode ends.
