The series of Duck Tales first aired on September 18, 1987. Disney broadcasted 65 episodes over a 13-week period. The first five (one week's worth), opened with Donald Duck enlisting in the Navy, leaving his three nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie with his Uncle Scrooge. At first Scrooge wasn't happy with his nephews, until they managed to prove their worth by preventing the Beagle Boys from robbing Scrooge. The series followed the first five episodes with 60 episodes including treasure hunts, thief-foilings, and general humourous adventuring strongly reminescent of Barks's work. DuckTales was such a hit, that series two, a further 35 new episodes were produced in 1990. DuckTales had reached a 100 episodes, a first for disney and a feature length film released to the cinemas in 1990 titled, Treasure of the Lost Lamp.
