Long live the king.
Move over Aflac Duck, there’s a new (old) richest duck in town. Sure Scrooge McDuck has been on hiatus since 1990, but the nostalgia effect is in full force for children of the 80s and 90s and as such continue to expect more reboots, re-launches, and new iterations of the things you used to love; specifically, here, the animated Disney Channel original DuckTales.
DuckTales will return to television during the summer of 2017, featuring your favorites from the original, including Scrooge, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, as well as Launchpad and Donald Duck in what appears to be an expanded role. You can view the teaser here, or wait for it on television, premiering Friday during Disney Channel’s Duck the Halls: A Mickey Mouse Christmas Special.
Outside of the glorious return of Launchpad, I’m equally excited for money swimming, lucky dimes, and that amazing theme song, which I will admit, still resides on my computer to this very day. Play count, over three hundred.
And just in case you didn’t get enough with the tease of a teaser, here’s the original DuckTales opening done with real ducks. You’re welcome.
