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 »

An AMAZING display of Disney magic. Superb viewing.
10 March 2000 | by (Westwood, NJ) – See all my reviews

While going through my archives of old VHS tapes, I happened to stumble upon one labled "Treasure of the Golden Suns". Appearently I had taped it off TV in 1987 when it originally aired on prime time television. I was certainly in for a treat! "Treasure of the Golden Suns" was the movie that started the DuckTales the series. It follows the adventures of Scrooge, his three nephews, his hired nanny Mrs. Beakly, and his pilot LaunchPad McQuack as they embark on an epic journey in search of the fabled Incan Treasure of the Golden Suns. The plot moves swiftly, with more twists than a pretzel factory....and the dialogue is top notch, especially for a TV movie. Also, it's not particularly for younger viewers due to some intense scenes and MUCH violence. Nevertheless, the movie astounded me in every way possible....animation, scripting....it has it all. A MUST for any Disney or adventure fan. 10/10
