In 2006, Disney released DuckTales The Movie: Treasure Of The Lost Lamp onto DVD for the first time in region 1 areas. However, instead of giving it a wide release, Disney decided to offer it exclusively through the Disney Movie Club. Later that same year, it also became a potential reward through their new Disney Movie Rewards program. Although some of Disney's DMC/DMR exclusives have since gotten wide releases, DuckTales The Movie has yet to do that.

The disc they've released is rather lightweight. Although it's still a steal for Movie Rewards members, the $19.99 it demands on the Movie Club seems about $5-$10 too high. (This isn't counting the prices poor suckers are paying for it on eBay or Amazon Marketplace, not knowing all that you need to do is join the Disney Movie Club to buy it.) The only bonus feature is a game that you won't play more than once. That's it. Not a trailer, not a featurette, not a cartoon featuring Huey, Dewey, and Louie - nada. It's not a matter of space - on a DVD-5 disc, you have room for at least 4.35 GB of data. This DVD only uses 3.31 GB. Disney, you COULD have put a little more on here.

However, the movie's transfer is very well done. There's occasional heavy grain, dirt, scratches, and the like, but for the most part, the transfer is nice and clean. And the 2.0 Dolby Digital Stereo track gets the job done.

All in all, I can't say that you shouldn't get this DVD if you have a chance. Just having the movie on DVD is worth the price you pay, but it would have been nice if Disney had treated us to a few more bonus materials on this DVD besides a game that's fun, but likely won't be played more than once.

What a great movie this is. Actioned packed right from the start, quick-moving plot, and of course the ever-lovable Scrooge McDuck, just as you remember him.

Scrooge searches for a lost Arabian treasure, but is ignorant that the most valuable part of the treasure is an old oil lamp. (Of course you know where this is going.) Scrooge's niece and nephews discover a genie inside the lamp with the power to grant wishes. The genie advises the kids to wish for small things, because big wishes lead to big trouble. The niece Webby ignores this advice, and wishes for her stuffed animals to come to life. Scrooge sees all this magic happening and finally discovers he has a magic lamp.

The Genie tells Scrooge he better be careful not to attract too much attention, because an evil immortal villain with a magic talisman is also seeking the lamp. The crafty villian finds Scrooge after only one wish, and gets ahold of the lamp after Scrooge gets it confused with a gravy boat. All heck breaks loose and Scrooge loses all his money, but he gets the lamp back later and becomes rich again. Then he fixes it so no more genie wishes will ever be granted by making the genie into a real live boy. The lamp falls apart and the genie plays cops and robbers with Scrooge's nephews, while the evil villan is...well...we see him falling from the sky somewhere, but he can't die, so I guess he ended up okay too.

The sad thing about this movie is it's so overshadowed by Disney's Aladdin. There really isn't much difference between the two movies, except for a giant money bin. The only advantage Aladdin has over the Ducktales movie is its outstanding songs. I highly recommend this DVD for Ducktales fans, but if you've seen Aladdin already, the Ducktales movie will seem awful similar.

I find it kind of sad that the Ducktales movie ultimately ended up being nothing more than a practice sketch for the later Aladdin film. It really is underrated.

The first of Disney's attempts to make some quick bucks from a feature based on one of their daily TV series, "Treasure of the Lost Lamp" sprawned from the enjoyable 80's cartoon series DuckTales and is likewise animated by the TV department. 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 geenie's former master, is hot on their trail and hell-bent on reclaiming the lamp and the power of the geenie 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 nessesarily 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 visiuals 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 worthile 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 epiosodic adventures of the characters.
