Side characters from DuckTales (1987), like Gyro, Doofus, Bubba the Cave Duck, and Gismoduck are absent, as the filmmakers didn't want to confuse newcomers who have not seen the Disney Afternoon cartoon. This is also why none of any of the show's villains, like the Beagle Boys, Magica DeSpell, and Flintheart Glomgold are present.
I don't see anything, Uncle Scrooge.
Dewey: Not even a mirage.
Launchpad: Maybe we made a wrong turn at that last sand dune.
When Scrooge scolds his nephews, Webby, and the disguised Genie, there are two Louies walking up the stairs.
When the film was released in theaters, the theme song was reprised twice during the end credits, both times sung. For some reason, the VHS only has the first time sung, while the second time is instrumental only. David Newman's music is also a bit off by about half a second. Oddly, the PAL DVD release contains the theatrical mix, while the NTSC DVD and VHS feature the above-mentioned alteration.
