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, we’re getting our first glimpse in poster form. (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…)
Children of the 90’s rejoice! Soon to join your video game shelf is this new effort from Capcom, DuckTales Remastered, a brand new game featuring Scrooge McDuck, his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, Launchpad McQuack et al.
The game will be out later this summer, but a trailer for the game debuted today. And I hope you remember the words to the theme song, because you’re about to be asked to sing-along.
In case you didn’t see it before, here’s a look at the game play from Twitch’s demo at PAX East.
It seems that everything new is just something old ripped off.
For weeks, people have been saying what an original and amazing idea Christopher Nolan‘s newest blockbuster movie Inception has been. The idea of infiltrating people’s dreams, and creating dreams within dreams, has attracted the attention of millions of fans.
But now, it seems that Inception has been foiled by none other than Scrooge McDuck!
In a comic entitled “Dream of a Lifetime,” the Beagle Boys infiltrate Scrooge’s dreams to get his dream self to unwittingly give the thieves his vault combination. Sound eerily familiar?
Scrooge McDuck’s totem is a 25-pound bar of solid gold. His limbo is an endless desert where each grain of sand is actually a microscopic gold coin. “All I want to do is go home and see my nephews and make sure they aren’t touching any of my stuff, I hate them, and this is my chance.” Your duck-mind is the scene of the duck-crime!
