DuckTales is an American animated television series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation. Based on Carl Barks' Uncle Scrooge comic book series, the show premiered on September 18, 1987 and ended on November 28, 1990.



The show features the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his great-nephews. The nephews, who were originally living with their uncle Donald, are left in Scrooge's care when the former joins the Navy.

Though Scrooge is the richest duck in the world, he constantly tries to find ways to increase his wealth. Many episodes involve protecting his wealth from villains who want to rob Scrooge of all his money. The prominent recurring antagonists in the show include the Beagle Boys and Magica De Spell who are always finding ways to rob and swindle Scrooge and his nephews. Scrooge's nemesis in the show is Flintheart Glomgold, who always tries to devise plans to dethrone Scrooge McDuck from his "Richest Duck in the World" title.

The show's second season saw the addition of characters Fenton Crackshell and Bubba Duck. Along with them came stories that generally shifted away from the globetrotting plots of the first season, and revolved primarily in the contemporary setting of Duckburg. Episodes would feature either Bubba or Fenton but rarely both.

Although Scrooge and his nephews were the show's main characters, some episodes focused on other characters like Launchpad or Gyro.

Some episodes are based on Carl Barks stories or simply have elements from such stories. For example, the episode "The Unbreakable Bin" is based on Barks's story The Unsafe Safe.


The series is notable for being the first Disney cartoon to be produced for syndication[1], and paving the way for future Disney cartoons, such as Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers and TaleSpin. DuckTales also spawned two spinoffs – Darkwing Duck and Quack Pack.

A world broadcast premiere television movie (entitled "The Treasures of the Golden Suns") first aired during the weekend of September 18-20, 1987 (date and time varied by market). Since then, it has been shown in the series' regular rotation as a five-part serial. A feature-length movie was released in theatres on August 3, 1990. The hundredth episode (which was also the series finale) aired on November 28, 1990.

The show was the most successful of Disney's early attempts to create high-quality animation for a TV animated series (earlier shows included The Wuzzles and Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears in 1985).[2] Disney invested a far greater amount of money into the TV series than had previously been spent on animated shows of the time. This was considered a risky move, because animated TV series were generally considered low-budget investments for most of the history of TV cartoons up through the 1980s. Most of the DuckTales episodes were animated in Asia by companies such as Cuckoo's Nest Studios, Wang Film Productions of Taiwan, and Tokyo Movie Shinsha of Japan.[3]

Many critics say that Disney's own animation studio had lost most of its luster during the period from Walt Disney's passing through the 1980s. However, the studio took a number of risks that paid off handsomely, and DuckTales was one of those risks that won big. The studio gambled on the idea that a larger investment into quality animation could be made back through syndication — a concept that worked well with live-action TV reruns, but which had only been used with inexpensive cartoon series that either recycled theatrical shorts from decades past or only featured limited, low-budget animation.

The 1987-1988 season of DuckTales consisted of 65 episodes (the standard length for a Disney TV show). Two more five-part serials - "Time Is Money" and "Super DuckTales" - premiered as television movie specials in November 1988 and March 1989, respectively. The rest of the second season (fall 1989 - spring 1990) included an additional 18 episodes. In the second season, Bubba the Caveduck and his pet triceratops, Tootsie, and Fenton Crackshell and his alter ego Gizmo Duck appeared. DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp was released in August 1990. In September 1990, The Disney Afternoon block started, including DuckTales. Seven final episodes premiered that fall (including three produced for season two but held back for airing, and four produced explicitly for season three), bringing the total to 100 episodes — making DuckTales one of the longest-running Disney shows in terms of number of episodes.

The show was successful enough to spawn a feature film, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, and two spinoff series: Darkwing Duck and Quack Pack. The success of DuckTales also paved the way for a new wave of high-quality animated TV series, including Disney's own The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh in 1988.

Magica De Spell and three of the Beagle Boys.

The 1989 series Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers was paired with DuckTales in an hour-long syndicated show through the 1989-1990 television season. In the 1990-1991 season, Disney expanded the idea even further, to create The Disney Afternoon, a two-hour long syndicated block of half-hour cartoons. DuckTales was one of the early flagship cartoons in the series.

Huey, Dewey, and Louie all appeared in the drug prevention video Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue. Scrooge and Launchpad appeared in Disney's short-lived animated series Raw Toonage (originally aired on CBS in 1992 and 1993).

DuckTales was last seen on Toon Disney, a Disney-owned network that aired mostly animated cartoons. After the addition of Jetix in February 2004, the show left circulation along with a number of other shows, and as of 2006, it is currently being syndicated on the United Kingdom channel Disney Cinemagic. The Disney Channel reran the series in the late-1990s until their pre-teen lineup took over.


The main characters of the series, who appear in almost every episode, are Scrooge McDuck and his grandnephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Scrooge McDuck is a serious businessman, the richest duck in the world, a tightwad who accumulated a fortune by being "smarter than the smarties, and tougher than the toughies". Despite his harsh business ethics, Scrooge is caring to his family. Huey, Dewey, and Louie are Scrooge's great-nephews, who are left in his care during the entire length of the series. Although fairly hyperactive, the nephews are also clever and intelligent.

The series also features a mix of established characters carried over from the comics, as well as new ones created for the show. Scrooge's household also consists of his butler, Duckworth; Mrs. Beakley, a nanny hired to look after Huey, Dewey and Louie; and Webby Vanderquack, the granddaughter of Mrs. Beakley.

Initially, recurring characters included the absent-minded inventor Gyro Gearloose, the heroic but not too bright pilot Launchpad McQuack and the loyal but somewhat foolish Doofus Drake. During the second season, Bubba, a caveduck from the past, and an accountant, Fenton Crackshell, who had the dual identity of Gizmoduck, were added to the cast.

The show's primary villains consist of characters Magica De Spell, Flintheart Glomgold and the Beagle Boys. Although they are all financial threats to Scrooge in one way or another, they each have different motives: Magica wants Scrooge's Number One Dime to complete her magic spell, which will enable her to take over the world; Glomgold wants to replace Scrooge as the "Richest duck in the world"; and the Beagle Boys want to rob Scrooge of his fortune. New villains created for the show include Ma Beagle, mother of the Beagle Boys, and Poe De Spell, Magica's brother who has been transformed into a raven.

Other minor, but notable characters include Donald Duck, who left Huey, Dewey and Louie in Scrooge's care at the start of the series; Gladstone Gander, Scrooge's inexplicably lucky nephew; Scrooge's old flame, Glittering Goldie; Merlock, a powerful magician who served as the movie's main villain; and Dijon, a thief who worked for either Merlock or himself.


DVD releases

As of 2009, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment is in the process of releasing DuckTales on DVD. While three volumes have been released in Region 1 (North America), one volume has been released in Region 2 (United Kingdom).

The episodes are in the order that they originally aired (except for the five-part serial "Treasure of the Golden Suns," placed at the beginning of Volume 2). None of the DVD sets contain any special features.

The series theme song was written by Mark Mueller,[4] an ASCAP award-winning pop music songwriter who also wrote the theme song to Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers.[5] Episode background music was written by composer Ron Jones.[6] In contrast to how other composers were creating a "patronizing" and "cute" score for the show, Jones says he composed the music with regard to the audience and its intelligence.[7]


DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp was released wide in the United States on August 3, 1990 by Walt Disney Pictures. The film follows Scrooge McDuck and his nephews as they try to defeat the evil warlock Merlock from taking over the legendary magic lamp.


In January 2009, IGN listed Ducktales as the 18th best show in the Top 100 Best Animated TV Shows.[8]

Comic books and trade paperbacks


DuckTales had two series of comic books. The first series was published by Gladstone Publishing and ran for 13 issues from 1988 to 1990, and the second series was published by Disney Comics and ran for 18 issues from 1990 to 1991. Disney also published a children's magazine based on the show, which also featured comic stories, one of which was the only story written by Don Rosa without any illustrations. Subsequent comic stories were also printed in the magazine Disney Adventures from 1990 to 1996.

On August 29, 2007, Disney released a trade paperback of Scrooge's Quest and later The Gold Odyssey.

On May 24 and July 19, 2006, Gemstone published a two-volume trade paperback, Carl Barks's Greatest Ducktales Stories. The trades contain reprints of stories written by Carl Barks which were specifically adapted into television episodes of Ducktales.

Both volumes start out with an introduction and compare the original comic story with its Ducktales episode counterpart. Volume 1 also includes a two page article delving into details on the adapting the show from the comic series.

The success of DuckTales led to the translation of the show into many languages. DuckTales was the first American animated TV series to be officially broadcast in syndication in the former Soviet Union. Featured together with Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers in a Sunday evening program titled Walt Disney Presents, the show premiered in 1991.

The show's theme song (written by Mark Mueller and originally sung by Jeff Pescetto), however, remained in English for a number of episodes. The first Russian version of the song was replaced mid-way through the series with an alternate rendition that contained completely different lyrics. Similarly, the German and Swedish version changed the lyrics of the theme into local language halfway through the series. The series aired in India, dubbed in Hindi.

In many countries the DuckTales song was performed by well-known singers (like in Finland, where it was sung by Pave Maijanen).

El Capitan: No, no! The gold... it is my life!
[The cannon goes off while pointing straight up...]
Glomgold: Uh-oh....
[The cannonball crashes down onto the ship's deck, going straight through the hull. Water spouts up through the hole.

Donald: What's the big idea, ya stupid hotshot?!
Launchpad: What's the matter with his voice? Did I grab him by the neck or somethin'?

Mrs. Beakley: (holding the disguised Beagle Boys up to a mirror) There now, don't you look nice? Just like the Beagle Boys... THE BEAGLE BOYS??!

Scrooge: Why don't I show you my study? You can tell a lot about a man by his study. Meticulous study, meticulous business, I always say.

GizmoDuck: That'll be a large bag of dimes, please. (Burger hands over the stolen bag of dimes)
GizmoDuck: Thanks, sucker!

Fenton: Hey, Ma! Look what I'm wearing!
Ma Crackshell: Fenton, did you join a heavy metal band?

Fenton: Of course you know, this means a skirmish.

Ma Beagle: (chasing Huey, Dewey & Louie) Come back with that cash!
Burger: (follows) Come back with those desserts!

Ma Beagle: How dare you steal what my boys rightfully stole first!

Fenton: Together we can turn the financial world upside down!
Scrooge: Do you mind if we start with my clothes?

Launchpad: (on walkie-talkie) Launchpad to Mr. McDee, Launchpad to Mr. McDee. The Money Bin and I are a on a roll.
Scrooge: Just make sure you don't roll into anything. (hears some noises over the walky-talky) What's all that racket?
Launchpad: Eh, nothing to be concerned about. Just a little fender-bender, that's all.
Scrooge: (hears people screaming) Why are people screaming?
Launchpad: Ah, the sissies never saw a shopping mall collapse before. But don't worry; I'm OK!
Scrooge: How far are you from the mountain I bought?
Launchpad: I'd say about an hour, give or take a crash or two. Ooh, kiss that billboard goodbye. Launchpad, over and out!

Ma Beagle: You goofs! What am I supposed to do with an empty Money Bin?! Live in it, like the old lady in the shoe?

Bigtime: It's bad enough that Jack Frost is nipping at my nose without youse guys bloodyin' it!

Fenton: The Money Bin's full! Your frozen assets are now lukewarm.
Scrooge: Good, Fenton! Every last dime's been accounted for?
Fenton: Yup! Except for the dime I used to make this call.
Scrooge: Dime? What dime?!
Fenton: Oh, just an old shiny one.
Scrooge: In a glass case?!
Fenton: Yeah, but I'll pay you back.
Scrooge: That was the first dime I ever earned, you idiot! Why else would it be in a case?!
Fenton: Blatherin' blatherskite! I thought it was for emergency phone calls!
Scrooge: Get it back, now! Or you're FIRED! (phone explodes in Fenten's face)
Fenten: I think he's mad.

Ma Beagle: Oh, I've always wanted a pink Thunderduck! Let's borrow it... permanently!

City Official: This is worse than the terrorists who held the city attorney hostage with an accordian!

Fenton: Uh, hi! I'm your new neighbor! Could I borrow the proverbial cup of sugar?
Ma Beagle: Uh, well, uh, I don't have a proverbial cup. Will a tin one do?

Fenton It must be something you said; a secret word. Here goes - uh, "Ducks of Hazard." Uh, "now look what you've done!" ...Oh, blatherin' blatherskite! What could it be!?

Fenton: (in disguise) Hi, Ma! It's me, Bermuda Beagle, back from being lost for 20 years in the Bermuda Triangle!
Ma Beagle: Bermuda Beagle? I don't remember a son named Bermuda. 'Course, I got more boys than a toad has warts!
Fenton: Ah, the old place looks just like I remember it!
Baggy: Ahhh, but we didn't live here 20 years ago.
Fenton: B-but what does it matter? The point is, we were together, a family. And by golly, any low-down worm that disagrees, he'll just have to take it up or we'll forklift it out of his hide. Speaking of hide, let's Beagle-bond a bit with a rousing game of hide-and-seek!
Burger: Ooh, ooh, goody! Who's gonna be it?
Fenton: Let's flip for it! Heads I win, tails you lose. Anybody got a bag full of dimes we could use?
Ma Beagle: Hold it, you canine counterfiet! Look at this family photo. No Bermuda!
Fenton: Uh, would you believe I was adopted?

Ma Beagle: Oh, this party is a dream come true! Who'd have thought I'd be hob-knobbing with Duckburg's finest?
Bigtime: What're you talkin' about, Ma? You've been in most of their homes before.
Ma Beagle: Yeah, but only to swipe their silverware.

Fenton: Wakey-wakey. Hello, little boy. I'm the Tooth Fairy, and have I got a deal for you.
Baggy: Uh, really?
Fenton: Yes. If you give me that bag of dimes, I'll give you this bag of teeth.
Bigtime: Better hang onto those - I think you're gonna need 'em!

Duckworth: Announcing a dripping dunderhead, sir!

GizmoDuck: Gandra! Would you believe you've stolen my heart?
Gandra: So is that any reason to steal my car?

Ma Beagle: It's thieves like them who are making the world a lousy place to live for thieves like us!

Launchpad: What's more important, a couple of quadrillion dollars or your life?
Scrooge: Is this a multiple-choice question?

[77] Allowance Day

Scrooge: Fenton, it's Saturday! You were supposed to sign that lease extension yesterday!
Fenton: That's what I don't understand, Mr. McDuck! I flew out here yesterday, but when I arrived, it was already tomorrow. Talk about your long flights!
Scrooge: Wait a minute. You did leave yesterday, which was Thursday. That means today should be Friday!
Fenton: Right now, I'd be happy if it was Tuesday and this was Belgium!

General Chiquita: It's your last day, McDuck! For assaulting the president of the Banana Republic, I order you and your amigo here shot at high noon!
Fenton: Is that high noon on Friday, or Saturday?

Fenton: But I'm too young to die! And too nice! And much, much too nervous!

Scrooge: What's going on? High noon isn't for another hour!
General Chiquita: I thought I would save you needless anguish by moving up the execution.
Fenton: But, but I was just starting to enjoy my anguish!

Fenton: Friends, Romans, and banana lovers! I regret that I have but one life to give to your ridiculous country!

Comic stories

Glomgold: I know that Scrooge. I bet he's going to steal the sidewalks... or change the traffic lights, from red and green to vermillion and polka dot.

Glomgold: And who are you, little lady?
Magica: I'm no lady, I'm Magica DeSpell, the most evil sorceress in the world, and Scrooge's worst enemy.
Glomgold: I'm sorry, but I'm Scrooge's worst enemy.
Magica: Ha! I'm twice the enemy you are. I hate him.
Glomgold: Well, I hate him more than you do!
Magica: Yeah? Well, I hate him more than ring-around-the-cauldron!
Glomgold: I hate him more than an I.R.S. audit in August!
Magica: I'll turn you into a tongue-tied tree toad, you old buzzard. I'm more evil than ten of you!

Fair official: Scrooge McDuck, you didn't pay for your rides on the ferris wheel, airplane, or water slide. You owe us two dollars and fifty-nine cents!
Scrooge: Just for three little rides? (sigh) I could've bought seven new hats for the price of this one! (double sigh)

Baggy: Scroogie got hold of some kind of treasure map, and he's taking off with his nephews tomorrow for the Artichoke!
Bigtime: Not the Artichoke, idiot! The Arctic!
Baggy: So? What's the difference?
Bigtime: The Arctic is an ocean and an artichoke is a vegetable, dimwit!
Baggy: Boy, are you smart! It's no wonder they call you Bigtime around here!
Bigtime: They'll be calling you "Toothless" if you don't put me down!

Glomgold: I've signed a whopping million dollar contract to write a book on my space odyssey! I'll make even more on the movie rights!
Scrooge: Burst me bagpipes and tan me tartans! If it wasn't for me, you'd still be stuck on that miserable planet!
Glomgold: I'm a fair man... I'll give you a one-line mention in the book!

Scrooge: (when aliens steal his cuff links) Oh no, you don't! Not unless you've got eightteen quadrillion bucks! And FIFTY CENTS!

Launchpad: Trapezium can be synthesized out of almost anything! Trouble is, it's not usually worth the effort! You can pick 'em up for a nickel over in St. Canard! I know this screwy duck and his daughter over there...

Scrooge: Hold still, Magica! I get extra points for evil sorceress in this game!

Fenton: Yipes! What do I do next? I'm no Launchpad! I can't fly!"

Baggy: Geez! I ain't scrubbed so much since the reform school graduation dance!

Scrooge: Confound you, Launchpad! You knocked the top off another pyramid!
Launchpad: (gulp) Sorry, sir! At least now they're a matched set!

Launchpad: $6.17? You dragged me away from my nap just to collect a dinky sum like that?

Scrooge: (as Magica tries to steal his Number One Dime) Why, oh why couldn't that woman have a fetish for rutabagas, or something?

Glomgold: What's this world coming to when you'd rather watch TV than argue with your greatest enemy?

Magica: It's not nice to fire at a lady! And it's incredibly stupid to shoot at a witch!

Scrooge: You let us go right now or I'm going to buy this place and tear it down to build hamburger stands!

DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp

Launchpad: Please put your seats back in the upright positions.
Scrooge: Just put the plane in an upright position!

Scrooge: Ah, nothing but old robes. 40 years of searching, and I end up with Collie Baba's dirty laundry!
Webby: Well, at least the box is pretty, Uncle Scrooge.

Merlock: At last, after all these centuries, the lamp will be mine again!
Dijon: Yes, yes! You will be more powerful than... than... locomotives! More faster than speedy bulls! You will leap all buildings in a single town!

Merlock: Now, give it to me.
Dijon: Give? What give?
Merlock: The map; give it to me.
Dijon: De map? Dat specific map? Right here, right now?
Merlock: (grabs Dijon by the collar) You didn't steal it?!
Dijon: Too many people, Merlock. Only one Dijon. But look what I did steal - several billfolds... dis handy pocket watch... floss... and date nut bar... and two tickets to the feta cheese festival. For you, master. (Merlock drops him) Maybe you do not want the floss?

Launchpad: Maybe we took a wrong turn at that last sand dune.

Scrooge: (after Launchpad's camel trips over a pyramid tip) Launchpad! Can't you even ride a camel without crashing it?

Dewey: Think we'll see a mummy?
Dijon: That reminds me - my mummy's expecting me; it's time for my nap.

Dijon: Is there a doctor in the pyramid?

Louie: Where ya gonna keep all this treasure, Unca Scrooge?
Scrooge: Oh, I won't keep it all, Louie. Most of these artifacts will go to museums.
Huey: That doesn't sound like Unca Scrooge.
Scrooge: That way, I can enjoy a hefty tax break!
Huey: That does!

Scrooge: (after Merlock and Dijon double-cross them) D'oh! I knew that rat's prices were too good to be true!

Launchpad: Forward, ho! (they crash into the wall) Reverse, ho!
Scrooge: If you don't stop crashing, I'll give you the heave ho!

Launchpad: Either the water's getting higher, or the roof is getting lower!

Merlock: They have vanished!
Dijon: B-but how?
Merlock: With the lamp, you fool! And you help me get it back! (dangles Dijon over the giant scorpions) Or their sting will seem like a tickle compared with mine!

Scrooge: I cannot work, Mrs. Featherby. I'm going home!
Mrs. Featherby: But what about your lunch?
Scrooge: Sell it!

Webby: As soon as I'm done polishing my tea pot, we can have a tea party with all my dollies!
Huey: Thanks for the warning.

Genie: Finally, room to stretch! My foot's been asleep for six centuries.

Genie: Whoo, cold food closet! Where do you hang the chickens?

Genie: (fighting with an egg beater) Back! Back, you foul egg!

Genie: (reading an encyclopedia) Las Vegas must be some place if Caesar moved his palace there!

Genie: (seeing a globe) Hey, what's this? A baseball? A bowling ball? Cinderella's ball?
Huey: It's a globe of the earth.
Genie: Get out! You mean the world isn't flat? I must have missed that part.
Louie: Boy, he has been in that lamp a long time.

Huey: Wait a second! What about our wishes?
Genie: Wishes? Do I look like a birthday cake?
Louie: Aw, c'mon, you can't fool us! A Genie's supposed to grant wishes.
Webby: Yeah! Three wishes for every master.
Genie: Oh, darn! Everybody remembers that part.

Louie: I'll have the first wish! I'm gonna wish for a million wishes!
Genie: Get serious! That never works.

Huey: Uh-oh! It's our nanny!
Louie: Hurry! Hide the elephant!
Dewey: Oh yeah, like where?

Scrooge: (after Mrs. Beakley swears there was a baby elephant in the library) Mrs. Beakley, is this a ploy to get some vacation time?

Genie: Not the lamp! Put me in a doghouse! A madhouse! Even a house of pancakes! ANYWHERE BUT THE LAMP!

Nephews: (sweetly) Hellooooooo, Unca Scrooge.
Webby: (sweetly) Hellooooooo, Unca Scrooge.
Scrooge: Don't you "Hellooooooo" me!

Huey: I wish for the world's biggest ice cream sundae. Uh, but not too big.
Genie: Ice cream sundae, come on down!
(Ice cream and whipped cream fall from the sky and land in the kiddie pool, but a giant cherry lands on Huey's head.)
Genie: Hmmm... gotta watch out for that wind shear.

Mrs. Beakley: Should I call the police?
Scrooge: Aye - to hold me down when those rascals get back! This time, they'll be grounded for a month! No video games, no television, and no more friends...!
(Huey whispers something to Genie, who zaps Scrooge)
Scrooge: ...for the night?
Kids: We're back!
Mrs. Beakley: Children, I think your uncle has something to say to you.
Scrooge: (stern) Aye... (loving) Welcome home! Can I get you and Gene anything? Cookies? Milk? Ice cream?
Huey: Uh, no thanks, Unca Scrooge. We're kinda full.
Webby: And sleepy.
Scrooge: That's because it's past your bedtime! Now scoot along, me we ones.
Huey, Dewey, Louie, & Webby: Good night, Unca Scrooge!
Genie: Nighty-night.
Scrooge: Sleep tight!
Duckworth: (deadpan) That's telling them, sir.

Huey: Your master was a bird?
Genie: A bird, snake, wolf. He can change into anything. He's an evil sorcerer!
Dewey: But he can't still be alive!
Louie: He'd be ancient.
Huey: Yeah! Older than Unca Scrooge, even.
Genie: Yeah. Except his first wish was to live forever.
Huey: Ooooh! Good wisher.
Genie: Nooooo - bad wisher. (sobbing) Oh, you don't know! He made me do the worst things.
Dewey: Like what?
Genie: Did you ever hear of Atlantis? It was everyone's favorite resort until Merlock couldn't get reservations. Then down she went! (sobbing harder) And poor Pompeii! Old Mt. Vesuvius would never have blown her top if Merlock hadn't blown his!

Louie: Well, maybe we should wish for the Talisman.
Genie: No, that's the one wish I can't do. You'd have to steal it from him yourself, and good luck!

[Merlock, as a hawk, flies over Scrooge's estate carrying Dijon]
Dijon There it is, Merlock, there it is! You can drop me off anywhere along here... (Merlock flies over a briar patch) B-but not there! Not there! Ahhhh! (Merlock drops him in the briar patch) Ow! That is going to leave a nasty mark!

Merlock: Then we begin our search...
Dijon: (climbing out of briar patch) But I am not a popular favorite in that house. Scrooge find me, he kill me!
Merlock: (knocks Dijon back into the briar patch) Then stay behind if you wish!

Scrooge: I told you, I'm not going to the ball!
Duckworth: But sir, I've already arranged for Launchpad to take you to the society's mountain lodge.
Scrooge: So cancel Launchpad! I'll not only save face, but my life as well.

Webby: Genie, you're going to love playing tea party.
Genie: I know, I've read all about it. Can I be the guy who dresses like an Indian and throws the tea off the boat?
Webby: No no no, silly, not a Boston Tea Party!

Mrs. Beakley: (attacking the transformed Merlock) Oh, eeyuck! I hate rats!

Genie: (after turning Webby's stuffed animals into living beings) Eh, eh, eh, cookies, anyone? Whoa! Feeding frenzy!

Mrs. Beakley: If there's anything I hate more than elephants in the house, it's rats! Here ratty, ratty, come to nanny... (sees the living toys coming her way) Ahhhh! This isn't a house, it's a zoo!

Genie: Wish them back, please!
Webby: I can't; that was my last wish!
Genie: Oh, I wish you hadn't have said that.

Duckworth: Oh dear, Launchpad isn't answering. He must be on his way. Won't you go, sir?
Scrooge: Aye, to work! Tell Launchpad he can take you to the ball.

Scrooge: (trying to catch his top hat, landed on top of the living toys) Since when does a hat have a mind of its own?

Duckworth: (as the toy inside Scrooge's hat zips around, taking Scrooge with it) Hold onto your hat, sir!

Dijon: Poor nosey!

Scrooge: Blow me bagpipes! He's a genie!
Mrs. Beakley: Does his mother know about this?

Scrooge: Heavenly heather! The genie in the magic lamp! The fortunes I could own! I could have the world's biggest diamond! No! The world's biggest diamond mine! No-no! All the diamond mines! No! The entire mining industry! Yes, yes, yes...! I can see that this is going to take some careful thought.

Duckworth: It's your ride, sir. Or should I say, my ride?

Genie: Music, food, guacamole! It's a party! Ha ha! Gotta boogie! Gotta bingo! I gotta get out of this lamp. Oh, please, please, please.
Scrooge: Can you keep quiet at all?
Genie: If you let me out, I'll be as quiet as a mouse, and just as small.
Scrooge: Oh, all right, all right. (lets Genie out)
Genie: Hey, look at us! A couple of single guys out on the town.
Scrooge: Guess again. (puts Genie in a shrub)
Genie: Hey!
Scrooge: You can watch the ball from here. Otherwise, you go back in the lamp.
Genie: But what if I win the door prize?

Dijon: Master, all this flip-flapping-- maybe we take the bus back?

Scrooge: (as Merlock smashes a hole in the door) He's got a bear?

(Scrooge and the Genie are both stuck in the lamp.)
Genie: I don't hear anything; I think they're gone.
Scrooge: Where are we?
Genie: Well, it's not exactly the Ritz.
Scrooge: Not the lamp?
Genie: Sorry about the smell. You get used to it after a couple hundred years. Could you move your elbow, please?
Genie: (does so) Do you have to yell at me all the time?
Scrooge: Hmph. I wouldn't be in this mess if it weren't for you. Thanks to you, I've got a crazy animal act on my tail!

Genie: That's right, blame the genie. It's not my fault Merlock's after me. I didn't ask to be Mr. Popular. All I want is a life of my own, like your nephews. With my own bike, a stack of comic books, a sled... maybe some ski equipment, a CD player, my own home video entertainment system-
Scrooge: All right, all right!

Scrooge: I've got to get you to my vault; it's the only safe place. Time to go back!
Genie: B-b-but you saw what a dump it is.
Scrooge: Sorry Genie, but the party's over.

Scrooge: Don't bother landing! I don't have time for any more disasters!

(Scrooge rushes into the money bin and shockingly finds Genie serving Dijon.)
Dijon: Good morning, Scrooge sir.
Scrooge: What's going on?!
Dijon: At the urging of my Genie, I have decided to seek my fortune.
Genie: I-I never thought he'd wish for your fortune, Mr. McDuck, I swear!
Scrooge: But th-the lamp? (looks at the lamp he's holding, which pours gravy on him) Gravy?
Dijon: (holds up the real lamp) That's right! I get the loot, you get the boot!

Scrooge: (being arrested by his own bin's security guards) Well, you can forget about this year's Christmas bonus!

Huey: Dijon has everything - the mansion, the factories...
Duckworth: Even your spat collection, sir.

Dijon: Everything smells more delicious when you're rich - even me!

Genie: Shouldn't we be bird-watching?
Dijon: Don't worry about Merlock. He would not dare to confront the great and powerful Dijon... Anyway, I don't think he knows about me yet.

Launchpad: I've got the bin at 12:00 high, Mr. McD! Give or take 10 minutes.

Dijon: Whoever said money cannot buy peace of mind must have had the brains of a garbanzo bean!

Scrooge: You maniac! Return the bin before I stuff that lamp down your throat!

Genie: (changed into a real boy) Now I can do all the things real boys do - run through fields! Play catch! Roll over! Wait, that's a dog.

DuckTales is an animated Disney television series. The main characters of the series are Scrooge McDuck and his great nephews Huei, Dewey and Louei. The series was originally shown from September 11, 1987 to May 6, 1990. It had a total of 100 episodes.


Basic story

DuckTales is about the adventures of Scrooge and his nephews. The nephews used to live with their uncle Donald. They were left with Scrooge when Donald went off to join the Navy.

Scrooge is the richest duck in the world. He has no want for anything. This does not stop him from finding ways to try and increase his wealth. Other common plots deal with him protecting his wealth from villains. In general, there were several different plotlines that were used many time in many of the episodes. Some of these plotlines included:

  • Scrooge learns about an ancient treasure or civilization. When he goes to find it, he finds more trouble than he thought he would find. (Home Sweet Homer, Master of the Djinni, Sweet Duck of Youth, A Ducktale's Valentine)
  • In a similar plot, Scrooge is having trouble with one of his businesses. When he goes to fix the problem, he gets involved in an adventure of some sort. (Where No Duck Has Gone Before, Bermuda Triangle Tangle, Ducks of the West, Back Out in the Outback)
  • Gyro creates a new invention. The invention usually either cause problems when it does not work properly or it is stolen and used for evil. (Armstrong, Bubba's Big Brainstorm, Time Teasers)
  • Scrooge loses all of his money, often to the Beagle Boys, and tries to get it back. This plotline is often used with one of the other common plotlines. (The Money Vanishes, Scrooge's Last Adventure, Time is Money)
  • Flintheart Glomgold tries to become better than Scrooge. This usually deals with Glomgold trying to become the richest duck in the world. (Duckman of Aquatraz, The Uncrashable Hindentanic, The Attack of the Metal Mites)
  • Magica de Spell tries to steal the first money that Scrooge ever earned. This is his first dime, which he calls his "Number One Dime". Her plans involve using the special dime to create a magic spell that will give her great wealth. (Send in the Clones, Nothing to Fear, Magica's Shadow War).
  • Scrooge remembers some business, voyages or adventures from when he was young. (Ducktales:Treasure of the Golden Suns, Duck in the Iron Mask, Status Seeker, Lauchpad's First Crash, Once Upon a Dime, The Curse of Castle McDuck, Back to the Klondike, Super DuckTales.



  • Scrooge McDuck is the richest duck in the world. He is the owner of factories, mines, railroads and oils wells. He keeps all of his money in the Money Bin and lives at Manor McDuck in the fictional city of Duckburg.
  • Huei, Dewey and Louie-They are Scrooge's great nephews. They live with him at McDuck's mansion. They like play in the pool and to go with the rich uncle on his expeditions.
  • Webby is a pretty girl whose live at McDuck's mansion with his adotive family, the Duck family.
  • Duckwhorth is the butler of McDuck's mansion.
  • Launchpad is Scrooge's accident-prone pilot.
