WARNING!!! This song is gonna be stuck in your head the rest of the day, but that’s a good thing, isn’t it?
Now that is how you start a good weekend. The cast is slap full of talented funny people. Rounding out the cast is Beck Bennett (SNL) as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as the modern take on Mrs. Beakley the housekeeper, and Kate Micucci, (Garfunkel and Oates) as Webby.
That does leave one gaping hole in the cast, who will voice Donald Duck? Word is that it’s Tony Anselmo, the only returning voice from the original series who has voiced Donald Duck since 1985. Anselmo might not be the only original voice though, rumor has it that Terry McGovern, might have a role in the new series.
