Storyline

When Donald Duck joins the Navy, he decides to send his nephews, Hewey, Dewey and Louie, to live with his Uncle Scrooge McDuck. However, while the old billionaire agrees to take them in, he coldly wants them to stay out of his way and business. That changes when the boys discover a model ship that bears a map to a fabulous treasure. That sparks Scrooge's interest as he undertakes a hunt for that treasure and with his nephews, his pilot and newly hired governess and daughter, he discovers not only the treasure, but something more valuable than that.

Trivia

Flintheart Glomgold is depicted in this movie as a Scot when in the original comic, he was an Afrikaner. This change may have been made because of the rise of international protest against South African apartheid during this time period. See more »

In the Beginning....
17 July 2013 | by (Outside Hollywood) – See all my reviews

Every good story has a beginning and for Scrooge McDuck, it was when he was left to care for his three nephews; Huey, Dewey and Louie. This three-part television movie was released in 1987 as a pilot episode for the series.

In the story, the three boys find a hidden treasure map of the Golden Suns, a treasure of vast fortune. Also introduced is Launchpad McQuack (also seen in Darkwing Duck), Scrooge's pilot. They head to the Middle East to search for the treasure, but unbeknownst to them, someone else is hot on the trail. It is Flinthart Glomgold, Scrooge's nemesis.

Most people think that "DuckTales: The Movie - Treasure of the Lost Lamp" was the first movie, but in fact, there were several TV movies, later made into episodic form.
