There is a lot of excitement for the return of DuckTales later this summer. For people that remember the good old days of the Disney Afternoon in the late 80s and early 90s, it’s a nostalgic whiff of greatness that is sure to get a lot of people to tune on the name alone, forget the fact that almost everything we’ve seen so far says this is not you, or your parents’, DuckTales. You get a pretty good idea about how those new dynamics will play out in the clip below, a scene from the new series that takes you to that beloved Disney locale, under the sea! (more…)
Life is like a hurricane in Duckberg, and nobody knows it better than Scrooge McDuck; the millionaire codger was a character children fell in love with while watching Disney’s Saturday morning classic, DuckTales. The show premiered in 1987, and was so successful that it led to a feature film, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, and two highly successful video games (one of which was remastered not too long ago). DuckTales (and spin-offs DarkWing Duck and Quack Pack) has since remained a nerdy fan favorite (even resulting in some disturbing deconstructions). Last year, Disney realized how sorely the franchise was missed, and moved ahead to revive the show with a reboot on Disney XD. Now the time for nostalgia is nearly at hand. Disney has released the shows updated theme song, new images, and a premier date! (more…)
The adventures of three naughty little ducklings who were only supposed to appear for one episode, the original DuckTales was created in response to huge public demand for more stories about Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck, the three nephews of Disney‘s classic character Donald. They appeared for the first time having been dumped on their Uncle Donald temporarily, while their father was in the hospital recovering from one of their pranks. When their antics became too much for yet another guardian, they were dumped onto old Scrooge McDuck who, suddenly forced to interact with his three grand-nephews, was inevitably dragged into all sorts of hijinks.
For people of a certain age, there are a lot of fond memories for DuckTales, the highlight of the Disney Afternoon block alongside Chip ‘N’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers, TaleSpin and Darkwing Duck. So now nostalgia fever has struck Disney XD, which will be launching a reboot of DuckTales later this year, and while we might cynically say that there’s no way that the channel can recapture the fun and adventure of the original Tales, you will now be dared not to hum along to the theme in eager anticipation. Disney has just released a new trailer, and it will have you eagerly awaiting more tales of ducks that seek treasure. (more…)
If you grew up in the late 80s/early 90s, then chances are that DuckTales was a pretty big part of your life. The series launched in the fall of 1987 and was part of the Disney Afternoon line-up for years culminating in 100 episodes and a big screen adventure called DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp. If you miss those golden days, or wish you could share them with the child in your life, there’s good news because Disney is bringing DuckTales back next summer in an all-new series on Disney XD, and below you can watch the very teasing teaser.

This time on the all new lemon scented RadioBastard podcast hour of power, Jeremy and Jason get wrapped up in the timeless internet sensation known as #DressGate. Also, there’s some hot llama action, a plot to steal Winston Churchill‘s vampire blood and a hot Latin body for Jason, 47 uses for chicken skin, and DuckTales! Wooo… Wha?
You seem like you could use some specifics… (more…)
We knew it had to happen sooner or later. Disney has a history of putting things back in the Disney vault only to take them out, dust them off, and bring them back to a new generation of children. This time around it is one of the best late 80’s cartoons, DuckTales. Scrooge McDuck and the gang are back to make another couple of truckloads of money for Disney stockholders. The good news is that this won’t just be a re-release of the cartoon series, but a season of new DuckTales adventures. (more…)
I’m just going to throw this out there: If you’ve never had the opportunity to view any of Animation Domination High-Def’s series of “Scientifically Accurate” cartoon jingles, based on the opening theme songs and credits of some of pop culture’s most beloved animated characters, then you are doing yourself a grave disservice. Let me tell ya, they are a beauty to behold. ADHD has already tackled DuckTales and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but the animation group has a new target: Chip ‘n Dale’s Rescue Rangers. If you’re ancient like me, you’ll remember the series featuring the title characters solving crimes and what-not with their mice companions Monterey Jack and Gadget and the housefly Zipper. No set up I could give this video would do it justice, so just give it a look. (more…)
Being a child of the 80’s and early 90’s, one of my favorite cartoons was Ducktales. A show about Scrooge McDuck and his three grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie. They set off on all sorts of adventures, with key secondary characters, like Donald Duck, Launchpad McQuack, Gyro Gearloose, and the nanny Mrs. Beakley and her granddaughter Webby. Now, leave it to the Internet to ruin everything!
Fox’s Animation Domination is back again with “Scientifically Accurate” cartoon. This one, based on DuckTales, is just as disgusting and informative as their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video.
Vagina mazes, corkscrew penises, rape and cannibalism…yeah, sometimes I don’t want to know the truth. Traumatizing nightmare fuel this is. That’s enough Internet for today.
