Heartwarming: The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck

  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The ending of The Richest Duck in the World.
  • It wavers between this and Tear Jerker with Goldie, who in later Don Rosa stories is revealed to still be waiting for Scrooge, even as an old woman.
    • Scrooge as well, in his old days is often shown simply sitting idly by and stare fondly at the lock of Goldie's hair that he still has.
  • A Letter from Home: Well. Whaddya know. The old curmudgeon does have feelings. And he manages to reestablish a bond with his estranged sister, and admit both to himself and her that he considered Donald the wealthy one, simply because he has a real family.
    • Notably, what convinces Matilda to forgive him is that he leaps in to take a bullet for her.
  • The music video for ''A Lifetime of Adventure'' off of the soundtrack album. The video shows Don Rosa working on the art for the cover of the album, and he looks so darn ecstatic to be working on this project.
    • Also, when Don Rosa first heard samples from the album, he cried from joy.
