Storyline

When Donald Duck decides to join the Navy, he leaves his nephews, Hewey, Dewey and Louie, in the care of his cantankerous Uncle Scrooge. He is an eccentric and miserly billionare who loves to literally swim in his money that is held in his corporate headquarters/vault known as the Money Bin. While the initial meeting was less than pleasant, events soon have them, along with a newly hired nanny, her granddaughter and Scrooge's stupid but skilled pilot, on countless adventures as the group goes around the world looking for treasure, or defending Scrooge's current assets from enemies like the Beagle Boys or Magica De Spell.

Trivia

When Carl Barks created Magica De Spell, he wanted something different from the 'old hag' stereotype of a witch. As a result, he decided to create a youthful, seductive character, taking inspiration in part from Italian actresses Gina Lollobrigida and Sophia Loren, as well as from Morticia Addams. This connection with Italian actresses is why, in the comics, Magica is said to live near Naples, in Italy, on the slopes of the Mount Vesuvius volcano. While in this television version Magica lives in her own unnamed volcanic island and speaks with what sounds like an Eastern European accent, Bark's original concept is carried on in the Italian-dubbed version of the cartoon, where she speaks with a thick Neapolitan accent.

Awesome!!!!
5 July 2002 | by TheMan3051See all my reviews

I used to love this show when I was a kid. It had great story lines and familiar characters doing more interesting stuff then in the Disney shorts. Anyway, this show was hilarious! The show was great till Bubba showed up. Then Gizmo Duck showed up and saved the show!

Fantastic

A true classic!
