Storyline

For their mother's birthday, the Beagle Boys secretly alter the city plans for a major roadway so that it runs directly through Scrooge McDuck's Money Bin. With no alternative, Scrooge must have his Bin physically moved and he decides to hire an accountant to keep track of his assets for the move. This is where Fenton Crackshell comes in as a goofy but ambitious literal beancounter who wants a better job. He gets Scrooge's opening and proves to be a mixed asset with a tendency to goof up, but doggedly determined to make amends each time. When he stumbles on to a suit of power armor that inventor Gyro Gearloose made, he becomes Gizmoduck, a superhero that may not be the most competent, but he gets the job done.

The best DuckTales episode EVER!!
14 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

I loved this show! And this TV movie was just awesome! I think it was the first time I watched a cartoon on primetime. I still remember when this thing came on! And I even got it on tape!! Wow, everyone has got to remember DuckTales, Gizmo Duck, and Launchpad McQuack! Uncle Scrooge, the nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and Webby! I loved this movie!
