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.

Wait, wait! Why give him the lamp?
Because the master wants it so badly.
But don't you see, with the lamp you'll be the big chief? The hot falafel? The most powerful person on Earth? Oh, great master!
Master? Master? Master Dijon? Oh, I like it! I really like it!

Animation is OK, but the problem is the script. It starts rushed up and ends with fairy-tale Disney ending that has always been annoying.
I saw this movie right after watching third season of the show (I grew up watching DuckTales but recently decided to re-watch just to watch the movie itself) and the drop in quality is very noticeable.
The animation done by a new studio feels rough, especially when they show whole Duck Berg or the first opening scene itself. Some characters like Launchpad do pretty much nothing while others like Gyro and Gizmoduck are completely absent like they never existed (not even a small cameo). Worst part is, this movie's failure meant Disney never bothered with another movie unlike Aladdin which has like 4 movies.
That said, is it a "bad" movie? No. Kids will enjoy it, even grown ups.. probably will. Just not enjoy it as much as the TV series itself.
