Along with their friends Launchpad McQuack, Gyro Gearloose, Mrs. Beakley and Webby Vanderquack, the DUCKTALES gang criscrosses the globe in a never-ending search for adventure.

And see how it all begins with the five-part pilot episode "Treasure of the Golden Suns." Experience some of the most memorable DUCKTALES adventures ever made in this three-disc set. It's a wealth of fun and adventure that you and your family can bank on.
Scrooge McDuck may be a spendthrift who's devoted to the pursuit of riches, but it turns out that he's also an adventurous, worldly duck who can occasionally be almost compassionate when it comes to his family. In the five-episode pilot "Treasure of the Golden Suns," Donald Duck enlists in the Navy and puts his three nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie in the care of the miserly Uncle Scrooge. Scrooge and his nephews balk at the arrangement, but the nephews soon earn their Uncle's grudging respect when they help retrieve an antique wooden boat that's stolen from Scrooge's museum. The wooden boat leads Scrooge and the boys to the deserts of South America and the ice floes of Antarctica in search of a treasure bigger than even Scrooge can imagine. Thus begins the 1987 adventure series in which Scrooge and his nephews travel the globe, from the Wild West to Texas to ancient archeological sites around the world, in search of ever-increasing wealth. Villains like El Capitan, Magica De Spell and the Beagle Boys, rivals like Flinthead Glomgold and J.R. Mooing, and allies like Launchpad McQuack, Governess Beakley and her granddaughter Webbigail figure prominently throughout the ducks' nineteen adventures. Scrooge, Huey, Dewey, and Louie grow and mature as a result of their adventures, realizing time and again that friendship is the most valuable treasure of all. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi
