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.

The best one of disney's TV-shows (and the best disney TV-theme)
22 April 2000 | by revival05See all my reviews

This is one of my childhood favorites. And still today, when I sit down and watch those crap-quality tapes with the show, I laugh, cause some of the jokes are fresh today, and it's still filled with some quite great adventures. My favorite episode is when Scrooge is out to make an old airship fly again, and the ending is of course a mess.

Let's not forget Gizmo Quack.
