Default DuckTales, woo-ooo!

Welp, it's finally arrived: The DuckTales reboot premiere is playing 24-hours solid today on Disney Channel.

Anybody here watch it? What are your thoughts?

I ended up enjoying it. I liked that the ducks are all individuals now, rather than Excitable Carbon-Copy Boys And Also This Girl. It's also nice to have Donald on-board (despite it being hard to understand him sometimes), and I look forward to seeing what the writers decide to do with that end-of-episode plot twist with the nephews' mom.

The nods to other Disney cartoons of the era (I heard mentions of St. Canard and Cape Suzette, and the girl waiting to interview for the accounting job with Donald looked a bit like Roxanne from the Goofy Movie) were appreciated, and David Tennant did a decent job as Scrooge. I'm interested to see if the upcoming episodes (which I assume will be 30 minutes each rather than a full hour like the premiere) will be as as fun as this first episode despite being shorter.

Disney's been hyping the hell out of DuckTales all summer long, and so far it's doing a decent job of living up to the hype. Let's hope it continues to be this fun.


Honestly though I'm just excited to find out when and how Darkwing Duck shows up.

They have the first episode officially uploaded to Youtube:



Definitely a strong start (This is a surprisingly insightful deathtrap!).

I didn't catch the Darkwing Duck reference, but maybe I'm just to many years divorced from the show to catch it. I did catch the Tail Spin and Goof Troop Easter eggs though.

I wasn't as much of a fan of this version of Launchpad. He seems more dumb bro than charmingly simple. Other than that I really liked this start. I'm looking forward to more of the same.

From a character design standpoint i like how Dewey seems to be the balanced one between Huey and Louie, which is represented in his shirt being a sweater, t-shirt combo.

One thing I noticed was how much Scrooge loved his nephews. In shows past he had either tolerance for them to out right contempt. Also Mrs Beaksley scares me

Tennent was great as Scrooge. I also noticed he was not as greedy as Scrooge McDuck of old.

Also that final shot of the torn picture was a gut punch and makes me desire to know more.

Seems like paving the way for a Disney-afternoon verse drawing more inspiration from Bark's ahead-of-its-time duck-verse than the original cartoon did, though it is it's own wonderful thing that this show is obviously referencing with a lot of love
