Storyline

Huey, Dewey and Louie stop by to see Scrooge McDuck and ask for advice on making their savings grow; he tells them the history of money and the basics of economics. There's also a segment on how large a billion is, and another on budgeting (both personal and governmental). Amazingly enough, Scrooge is a big fan of putting money to work, not just stashed in a vault (he claims his vault is just petty cash that moves in and out daily). He then explains investing, and sells the boys a share of Scrooge, Inc. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

An example for why people began to hate, or at least ignore, Disney starting in the 1960s and 70s
17 November 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the very first Scrooge McDuck cartoon and while it's notable for this reason, I cannot recommend you see this film because it embodies why Disney stock began to drop like a rock in the 1960s and 70s. By the early 80s, the Disney name was at its lowest---due at least in part to 20 or more years of cartoons and live-action films of often dubious quality. This period was so unlike the glory days of the late 20s through the 1940s when Disney meant first quality--and very much unlike the improved Disney of the last few decades. The huge slip in watchability came when Disney did so many moves to cut costs that the films simply weren't any fun. Low frame-rates, dull characters and poor animation became the norm.

SCROOGE MCDUCK AND MONEY is, in particular, no fun at all. And, instead of fun, it was meant to educate children about the history of bartering, money and credit! For a kid, this is like being given new underwear for Christmas!! You expect more from the Disney folks than boring education...set to awful music.

Don't watch this film. While I am not a huge fan of DuckTales, I suggest you try them instead--It's harmless and at least fun...and your brain will thank you for it.
