* "Rightful Owners": Things go wrong during Scrooge's attempt to show the kids his "life and times", leaving Webby and Scrooge trapped between a unicorn and a dinosaur on the loose. Scrooge tells Webby to stay behind him, but she tells him she has an idea. With a single hand gesture, she commands Launchpad to [[BuzzingTheDeck dive at the animals]] to scare them, which he pulls off, [[BellyScrapingFlight just barely scraping the ground]].

* "Scrooge's Quest":
** Launchpad and Scrooge pull a YouShallNotPass moment on EvilSorcerer Laird.
** Scrooge returns to find that Glomgold has taken over Duckburg in his absence. However, after a brief HeroicBSOD and [[CatchYourDeathOfCold a bout of illness from the elements]], he launches a perfectly executed ParanoiaGambit on Glomgold that keeps his enemy utterly wound up and ultimately helps him get everything back to normal.
* In "Sky-High Hijinks", the Beagle Boys shoot a hang glider out from over Scrooge and Launchpad's heads while they're trying to reach the stolen hotel room where the Beagles are holed up. Launchpad breezily tells Scrooge to keep calm and hooks one of the struts with the "anchor", and finishes by attributing his survival in multiple crash landings to this kind of cool-headedness. It isn't a big moment, but it's a neat one.


* For the remastered version, they got [[RoleReprisal pretty much the entire original cast]], including TV legend Creator/AlanYoung (who at the time was '''94''') to reprise their roles for the game. And all the returning actors sound nearly indistinguishable from twenty years before.

** While Joan Gerber, Hal Smith, and Hamilton Camp could not reprise their roles as Mrs. Beakley, Gyro Gearloose, Flintheart Glomgold, and Fenton Crackshell/Gizmoduck because they all died before the game was made, their replacement actors Wendee Lee (Mrs. Beakley), Chris Edgerly (Gyro), Brian George (Glomgold), and Eric Bauza (Fenton/Gizmoduck) deserve some points for being able to do the voices well enough that one can hardly tell the difference!

* When the ''Videogame/DuckTales Remastered'' game came out, Creator/AlanYoung reprised the role of Scrooge [=McDuck=]. He was ''96'' at the time, and Scrooge still sounds as great as ever. And Creator/JuneForay (Magica) was no slouch either, being ''95'' when she reprised her role.
