TREASURE OF THE LOST LAMP is the first full-length feature film starring Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webbigail Vanderquack! The Egyptian desert becomes a nonstop adventure zone as the DuckTales team pursues the legendary treasure of Collie Baba's ancient pyramid! When the daring ducks make off with the riches, little do they know there's a magic lamp among the gems ... a lamp with a wacky, wish-granting Genie inside. When Merlock, the evil sorcerer, follows them back to Duckburg, an incredible battle erupts over the lost lamp! But in the thrilling climax, Scrooge and the nephews learn a lesson far more valuable than even the world's greatest treasure!
Another of Disney's efforts to create a quickie animated feature film out of one of its daily TV shows, this one plays like a low-rent reworking of Aladdin. Still, with Scrooge McDuck (voiced by Alan Young) and nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, there's fun to be had. And that includes the genie (voiced by comic Rip Taylor) and the villains voiced by Christopher Lloyd and Richard Libertini. The plot centers on Scrooge's search for lost treasure; the kids come up with the magic lamp with the genie in it, which is sought by an evil magician. Everyone gets into the act of making wishes and seeing them come true, until the bad guy gets a hold of the lamp. Mostly for young viewers. --Marshall Fine
