DuckTales: The Movie - Treasure of the Lost Lamp (1990)



Reviews and Comments

Disney's DuckTales afternoon television series, relating the adventures of Donald Duck's greedy Uncle Scrooge, was popular enough to spawn several other Disney animated TV shows. Shortly after the DuckTales series ended, this theatrical film was made. While it falls short of the usual Disney animated feature standards, the story and animation are a hair better than the series'. For kids, this is great -- adventure, villains, magic lamps, the works. But there's not enough substance or charm for most adults to enjoy.
