  • Magica busts the Beagle Boys out of jail and hires them to help her steal Scrooge's #1 dime. She changes them into Scrooge's nephews and they infiltrate his mansion.

    Not a bad episode.

    Magica DeSpell is the show's greatest villain. She is such an interesting character. It isn't quite explained why Scrooge's #1 dime possesses certain magical possiblities. Magica says its because its the reason for his wealth. Throughout the series, this is always her motive ... to steal Scrooge's #1 dime and use its magical possiblities to her own end. The Beagle Boys are great characters, too. It was wise to give the Beagle Boys real names. In the comics the Beagle Boys always referred to each other by their prisoner numbers. That would get very tedious in a cartoon. Burger is a funny character.

    Webra Walters appears in this episode. She would appear in subsequent episodes as well. She's Barbara Walters with a lisp. That's hilarious.

    The episode was full of action from start to finish. A lot was jammed into 23 minutes, but it works out great.

    I love the look Magica gives the Beagle Boys when her hair turns green due to that magic dust.

    I loved this show as a kid, and I still love it watching it as an adult.
