Baghdad (also known as The Golden Land) is the main setting of the Miramax's animated film, The Thief and the Cobbler. Based and modeled after the real city of the same name, Baghdad works as sorts of a sultanate ruled by King Nod, as its sultan. It is known for the palace of King Nod, as well as the minaret, that hosted the three golden balls that protect the city with their mysterious and immense power. Over the progress of the original film, Baghdad was threatened by various villainous forces including the One-Eyes (led by King One-Eye himself), and Baghdad's devious advisor Zigzag, although it met resistance from the beautiful princess Yum-Yum, and the kind cobbler Tack. On an interesting note, Baghdad served as an early inspiration for the creation of the Agrabah city from the Aladdin franchise. Coincidentally, both franchises share similiar attributes, in terms of character designs, character developments, and storyline.
Baghdad also appears as a minor location in the villain tournaments, including the Non-Disney vs. DC Villains and Heroes vs. Villains Wars, where it is featured as one of the worlds threatened by the villain forces.
