This was the first Walt Disney film released to theaters that was animated, not by the Disney "Feature Animation" division, but by the "Television Animation" division. This explains the notable difference in quality between this film and other Disney animated releases around the same time (e.g. The Little Mermaid (1989), The Rescuers Down Under (1990), and Beauty and the Beast (1991)). The TV Animation division has since produced several other theatrical releases, such as A Goofy Movie (1995) and Return to Never Land (2002) (with striking improvements in animation quality), as well as numerous direct-to-video sequels for Disney features.

Are you sure this is where Scrooge lives?
Oh, yes. I am positive, Master. Oh, but if Scrooge catches me here, he'll kill me!

Okay, it is true that the graphics of this movie are not as good as those of the 1990s Disney classics, but still, despite that it is a nice movie. The beginning, I mean the treasure hunt is typical of earlier Ducktale cartoons
adventures in some ancient land. The rest is a modernised adaptation of
the story of Aladdin. It is quite gripping for kids, and adults are bound to like it too. The best thing about it, I think, is that the adventure starts away from home but it ends up at Duckberg. Fantasy plays a large role as with all Disney cartoons. Enjoyable.
