  • Scrooge and Glomgold must race back to Duckburg to determine the rightful master of the lamp, but the Djinni hinders their race by sending back in time.

    Tension in the story derives from the fact that the desert sultan thinks Glomgold and Scrooge are spies sent by the emir to streal Schewebezade away from him. Scrooge and Glomgold meet Scheherezade, or Schewebezade, as she is called in this story. Schewebezade, unlike her historical namesake, causes the listeners of her stories to fall asleep.

    I love the bickering between Scrooge and Glomgold. They fight over the lamp like two children. Scrooge says Glomgold can't win because he is younger.

    Scrooge also sought a lamp in the DuckTales Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp. Webby tricks the Djinni back into the lamp by saying she doesn't think he can fit inside. The same thing happened between Sabu and the djinni in "Thief of Bagdad."

    The voice of the Djinni is provided by that guy that was floating up in the air in Mary Poppins. I love the story. Great episode from start to finish! It's a sad ending. I feel bad for the djinni. He is once againtrapped in the vault of Aladdin, and it is sealed shut.moreless

    • (Sultan approaches Scrooge and Glomgold dressed as harem girls)

  • NOTES (4)

    • Episode included on a vhs release titled:Ducktales:Fearless Fortune Hunters.

    • Flintheart's wishes:

      1. Scrooge to be stuck in a desert island
      2. See his face(a comment taken by Djinni as the second wish, causing Flintheart to be stuck in the same island)
      3. Have never seen the lamp before(stuck in the island, he forgot his third wish). Past has changed. Now the explosion which opened Aladdin's vault caused the lamp to fall from the pedestal in a place where neither Scrooge nor Flintheart saw it.

    • The series' first and only episode to feature a Genie in a Lost Lamp before the movie Treasure of the Lost Lamp.

    • This episode was included on VHS titled: Ducktales-1001 Arabian Nights in the UK.
