Storyline

When Donald Duck decides to join the Navy, he leaves his nephews, Hewey, Dewey and Louie, in the care of his cantankerous Uncle Scrooge. He is an eccentric and miserly billionare who loves to literally swim in his money that is held in his corporate headquarters/vault known as the Money Bin. While the initial meeting was less than pleasant, events soon have them, along with a newly hired nanny, her granddaughter and Scrooge's stupid but skilled pilot, on countless adventures as the group goes around the world looking for treasure, or defending Scrooge's current assets from enemies like the Beagle Boys or Magica De Spell.

Trivia

The prison number for each of the Beagle Boys is some combination of the numbers 1, 6, and 7, a holdover from the Carl Barks Uncle Scrooge comic books, wherein they were identified only by their numbers. See more »

Disney's greatest Animated Series
4 September 1999 | by (Duckberg) – See all my reviews

Ducktales... one of the many greatest cartoons of the 80's. I'm in my teens and I still love the show. It's different from other shows with many colorful characters potrayed in many different kinds of ways. Scrooge is a hard-core businessman who's seen the world in search of treasures but later learns family is more important. Donald Ducks three nephews add a little bit of uniqueness in demi-genius children who goes by the Junior Woodchuck book. Finally, Launchpad McQuack, a bumbling inept pilot who likes to crash his plane and gives a pretty large grin at Scrooge when he does something wrong. It's perfect for anyone who was a child and loved this show to bits. Trust me... It's fun!
