Ducktales is coming back because there’s nothing original anymore. In fairness, if there is any Disney property I’d like to see back in from the heyday of their Saturday morning cartoon glory it’s probably Ducktales, and from this poster at least the look is pretty solid. The animation has almost a classic look to it and ditches a lot of the sharp-edged style that most modern cartoons love. I’m digging it.
The new show will once again follow the exploits of Scrooge McDuck and his plucky nephews and niece (and Donald Duck, evidently) as he tries to become richer and richer. Presumably there will be money swimming as well, but this has yet to be confirmed. The show will be broadcast on Disney XD and we’re guessing will cater not just to that channels pre-teen audience, but also nostalgia loving adults as well.
Now, lets all spend the rest of the day trying to get the theme song out of our heads.
