Scrooge McDuck and Money (film) Special cartoon featurette; released on March 23, 1967. Directed by Hamilton Luske. Scrooge McDuck is visited by his nephews, who wish to become as wealthy as their uncle. In an illustrated lecture, punctuated by song, Scrooge tells about the history of money, and explains how budgeting works, for both home and country. He says money should be wisely invested and should circulate. And he charges his nephews three cents for this good advice, “for nothing good is ever free.” This was Scrooge McDuck’s theatrical debut. 17 min.
