In this big-screen goround, Scrogue McDuck (Alan Young) travels with his nephews and niece Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby (all Russi Taylor) in search of Collie Baba's legendary treasure. They are persued in this quest by powerhungry sorcerer Merlock (Christopher Lloyd) with the reluctant assistance of his henchmen Dijon (Richard Libertini) and escape with their lives - but without most of the treasure. The kids release a geenie in the lamp when Webby is cleaning her "teacup" and have fun making crazy wishes (such as turning Webby's stuffed toys into real live animals.) But Merlock, the genie's former master, is hot on their trail and bent on reclaiming the lamp and the power of the genie at any cost.

All this plays out like a workprint version of Disney's classic "Aladdin," which debuted two years after the DuckTales release, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. There's a lot to like about "Treasure of the Lost Lamp," and a lot of fun to be had here, including many comic moments. Also, the breezy 74-minute runtime is just right for young viewers' attention spans. While the visuals and somewhat choppy editing are nothing compared to the Feature Animation-created Disney efforts of the time, the movie recaptures the look, feel, and spirit of the TV show, making it good fun for fans and a very worthwhile watch for others. In fact, it's best to think of this as an episode of the TV show with an extended runtime. When you use that point of view with this film, you'll have a lot of fun following the episodic adventures of the characters. The opening sequences while searching for (and finding) the treasure feel a lot like an animated Indiana Jones and it's a shame there wasn't more time put into this part of the story.

All in all "DuckTales" provides a solid, simple and entertaining story, great vocal delivery from all the cast (most notable in this department is Christopher Lloyd as the villain), and a lot of laughs with genuine humor behind them. Highly recommended viewing for a lazy afternoon, but this might not stand up to repeated showings unless you're a big fan of the show. If you are a fan, don't hesitate to buy this - you'll be pleased.
