Yea, the Magician Chick episodes are boring even though the Beagle Boys are mildly entertaining. I tune those out. Glomgold is my favorite character. He's Scrooge without the nephews and their conscience. My daughter loves Webby, naturally.

It's kind of an interesting show. The takeaway for me is that Scrooge would be absolutely horrible if not for the people around him tempering him. Money lust doesn't cast Scrooge in a good light. And it's not like Scrooge is a particularly endearing character throughout Disney lore. Ms. Beakley's entire purpose is basically to call out Scrooge.
Not to mention the obvious allusion to Dickens.
