Produced by Walt Disney Television Animation and based on Carl Barks' Uncle Scrooge comic book series, it originally ran from September 18, 1987 to November 28, 1990 for a total of 4 seasons and 100 episodes.

This Disney series followed the adventures of millionaire Scrooge McDuck and his nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Other characters include the pilot Launchpad McQuack, butler Duckworth, inventor Fenton Crackshell and his alter-ego Gizmoduck, and the rival millionaire Flintheart Glumgold who plans to dethrone Scrooge McDuck from his "Richest Duck in the World" title. Some episodes are focused on Scrooge's "Number One Dime" which is the source of Scrooge's good luck and wealth.

This is the first Disney cartoon to be produced for syndication and also the most successful of Disney's early attempts to create high-quality animation for TV animated series; Disney invested much more money into the TV series than had been previously spent on animated shows of the time.
