File:Ducktales the movie treasure of the lost lamp 6756.jpg

DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp marked the first theatrical animated movie by The Walt Disney Company that was not part of their animated feature canon, and their first movie based on one of their television shows. It is based on DuckTales and was released shortly before the series' last few episodes originally aired.

The film opens on Scrooge, Launchpad, Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby arriving at a dig site where Scrooge's diggers have found a map to a treasure Scrooge has been seeking for forty years - the treasure of Collie Baba and his 40 Thieves. Unbeknownst to them, Dijon, a digger with a severe case of kleptomania, is working for an evil sorcerer named Merlock, who is also seeking the treasure so that he can get his hands on a magic lamp that Collie Baba stole from him so long ago. Just as Scrooge and company find the treasure, Merlock steals it right from under their beaks. However, before he could do that, Webby found the lamp Merlock was seeking, which Scrooge allowed her to keep as a toy for her tea party set. Thus, Scrooge and company end up coming home with the very thing Merlock was looking for.

Back in Duckburg, the kids discover that the lamp contains a fun-loving genie, who disguises himself as a kid like them and grants their wishes without Scrooge knowing. Scrooge eventually finds out about the genie, and soon wishes for Collie Baba's treasure to be brought to his mansion so that he can finally brag about it to his patrons in the Archaeological Society. Unfortunately, Merlock and Dijon are still on the hunt for the genie, and they know that Scrooge has it...

In spite of the popularity of the DuckTales cartoon, the film did poorly at the box office, and as a result, plans to make more DuckTales films and a movie based on Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers were scrapped. Two years later, Disney would produce a more successful movie involving a genie who lived in a lamp...


Tropes present:

 Dijon: Is there a doctor in the pyramid?

 Scrooge: Launchpad! Look what you've done to these ancient ruins!

Launchpad: Well, it could've been worse. It could've been somethin' new!
