What would you do if you had Scrooge McDuck’s fortune at your fingertips? This was the life-altering question I posed to the cast of Disney XD’s excellent DuckTales revival, and like a vibrating motel bed, restless leg syndrome, or a low-grade earthquake, it left them shook.

It’s a question that has been on my mind ever since Disney announced it would be reviving the fan favorite DuckTales for a brand new animated series. After diving into a life-size version of Scrooge McDuck’s Money Bin, it was all I could think about. What would you do with all that money, which—by some estimates—equals $65.4 billion? Would you be responsible and pay off your college loans? Would you erect a golden statue in your honor then slather it in caviar? Would you use it to Kickstart a revival of Gummi Bears that the world so desperately needs? The mind boggles at the possibilities of unrestricted, free-market capitalism.
Watch the video above to find out exactly what stars Ben Schwartz (“Dewey”), Danny Pudi (“Huey”), Beck Bennett (“Louie”), Kate Micucci (“Webbigail Vanderquack”), and Toks Olagundoye (“Mrs. Beakley”) would do if that had a McDuckian fortune just burning a hole in their proverbial pocket.
DuckTales airs on Saturdays on Disney XD.
