Heartwarming / DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp

Go To

  • When Launchpad falls off the pillar during the initial treasure hunt, the kids bolt to grab him and hold him up and, if you listen, you can hear Scrooge yelling his name and commands to hold on in the background.
  • The group comes up out of the water, having been mobbed by scorpions, nearly drowned, and robbed of the treasure. Launchpad's first words are, "At least we're all okay." Depending on your feelings about Webby, the fact that he's holding her while saying this might make it even more adorable — especially when they share a hug immediately afterwards.
  • Webby offers to return the lamp to Scrooge (who had given it to her so she could use it as a toy teapot) when he is upset about losing the treasure. He gently turns her down, but it was still very sweet.
    Webby: Here, Unca Scrooge. You can have this back if it'll make you feel better.

    • Note the lamp was the one remaining piece of the treasure they had left. He still sweetly told Webby to keep it despite being heartbroken from losing it all.
    • The shot ends with Scrooge and Webby sitting on the log together with her arm around him.
  • When Scrooge insists that Genie come with him, Genie says goodbye to the kids, and it's clear he enjoyed the time he spent with them being semi-normal, in spite of the inevitable Be Careful What You Wish For antics.
  • The moment where Scrooge's employees and family come to get him out of prison. As Scrooge is having a mourning monologue about losing everything thanks to Dijon's wish, the guard announces "someone here to see [him]", which turns out to be the kids, Mrs. Beakley, Duckworth, and Launchpad. Scrooge jumps up and hugs the youngsters. Duckworth tells him that they combined their funds to set bail, which (given that the kids had to empty their Piggy Banks) seemingly cost the group every penny they had...and apparently, they thought it was worth it. It's an excellent example of Mrs. Beakley, Duckworth and Launchpad's Undying Loyalty, given Scrooge had lost his fortune and thus their services, yet they still stood by him and seem solely concerned about his well-being.

  • After Merlock orders Scrooge's demise, the Genie attempts desperately to resist, but fails. Scrooge, though terrified, shows awareness of this.
  • Even after they've used up all their wishes, the ducklings still beg Scrooge to let Genie stay with them at the mansion both because they know how much he hates being in the lamp, and because he's their friend.
  • At the end, the group is left with what to do with the Genie's lamp. Scrooge says he could wish the lamp to the Earth's core to be rid of it...but then decides to wish the Genie free and turn him into a real boy. What makes it even better is that as Genie joyfully realizes that his greatest wish has been granted, you can see Scrooge smiling and clapping his hands. The world's richest duck really does have a Hidden Heart of Gold.
  • Gene and the nephews gleefully beginning a game of cops and robbers after Scrooge's final wish. Gene finally has what he's always wanted...a normal life.
