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.

What? What? I am not touching a thing! I am clean! Innocent like a little baby goat! Yes.
Go get our sacks.
Sacks? Oh, yes, sacks! Right away. Anything you say, Scrooge, sir. I do for you.

Great animated movie for children. A real Indiana Jones feel.
This is a wonderful little movie for children. Adults will be amused enough to watch it with their kids and I can't think of many things in the film that would offend the sensibilities of any except the most sheltering of parents. Racism against Arabs have been leveled against certain sections of the movie but they do not hold any water. Stereotypical portrayal perhaps but racism in a negative sense, no. One must keep in mind that this movie was created in 1990 and Middle Eastern culture has long been considered exotic, interesting, and mysterious. That is what this movie tries to tap into, not into racism.
Scrooge McDuck and the gang go on a short but enjoyable adventure and the voice acting of Christopher Lloyd really earn this movie the seven stars. Your kids will love it.
