The Comics

  • "Scrooge's Quest":

  • "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 dive at the animals to scare them, which he pulls off, just barely scraping the ground.
  • 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.

The Video Game

  • The Moon level in the video game is pure awesomeness. Here's why, courtesy of Brentalfloss:
    Wait Uncle Scrooge, you need a suit out there
    That's gotta be one expensive cane...
    • Not to mention barely five minutes after he steps foot on the moon, he starts picking fights with a technologically advanced batch of aliens...and winning single-handedly.
  • For the remastered version, they got pretty much the entire original cast, including TV legend Alan Young (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.
    • Alan Young alone gets one for reprising his role as Scrooge and giving it his all despite his very old age.
    • Ditto for June Foray (Magica DeSpell), who was 95 at the time.
    • 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!

  • Meta example, during Gamespot's All Time Greatest Game Sidekick Competition, Launchpad McQuack, due to his role in the DuckTales game, was added as an a opponent to Captain Price, with the obvious intention of Price winning. Launchpad ended up winning the entire competition.
