The Conception of the Disney universe
in Duck Tales and Quack Pack

   The Duck Tales series, a 1988 season of 65 episodes, a second season in 1990 of 25 episodes, plus a long movie, in 1990, "DuckTales: The Movie - Treasure of the Lost Lamp",  featured the traditionnal Barks Duck characters, that's to say Donald, Scrooge, Huey, Dewey, Louie, Gladstone Gander, Gyro Gearloose, Magica de Spell, Flintheart Glomgold, Glittering Goldie, the Beagle Boys,... and also new characters (Betina Beakley, Duckworth, Launchpad McQuack, Webby, Bubba, Fenton, Dijon,...). It was much inspired by Barks' comic stories (some titles were even the same than Barks' stories' titles), and took place in Duckburg too. Scrooge lives in a manor, but still has his Money Bin.
Here is a picture of Duckburg :

Here is a map from the credits (although I have no idea of what it represents, and, I think, neither did its author) :

In the episode #20, "Magica's Shadow War", Magica de Spell explains her shadow how to catch Scrooge's dime, and she shows her a map of Duckburg, with a photograph of the McDuck Manor stuck on it, where stands the actual manor (In the script, it was first intended to be a picture of the Bin, and, by the way, if we compare with the first picture of this page, the photograph seems to be stucks where the BIN stands...). We can see here that Duckburg is located on the Western coast of North America, as Barks wanted it to be :

In the episode #41, "Double O Duck", Launchpad is a spy and in a particular scene, we can see a map of the world with the most popular monuments of the World on it : the White House, the Empire State Building, Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, and... the Money Bin! But this time, it's not located on the Pacific Coast [?!]

    The 1996 39-episodes series "Quack Pack", follows Duck Tales, and takes place in Duckburg. In the episode "The Late Donald Duck", we can see a map of the US with Donald's way from from North Pole to Duckburg :
