‘Duck Tales, Waooooo!’ We’ll all be singing that little ditty again soon it looks like as Disney announced last week that they’ll be bringing a reboot of their nostalgic cartoon “DuckTales” back to television! Hear that sound? It’s the roar of every late Twentysomething and early Thirtysomething collectively cheering that Disney’s doing this! It’s remarkable!
“DuckTales” follows the adventures of everyone’s favorite Grandduck (grandpa?), Scrooge McDuck, and his three nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie! Together this team solves mysteries and rewrites history thanks in part to the bankrolling of Scrooge’s fortune. Marc Buhaj, Disney XD’s senior vice president of programming said in a statement about the relaunch, “DuckTales’ has a special place in Disney’s TV animation history. Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation.”
Color me excited! It’s an Emmy-winning series that produced 100 episodes as a lynchpin for the Disney Channel in the late 80’s. We’ll have to wait until 2017 to see the new episodes that will air on Disney XD, but it will be well worth it. Check back for more as we hear it!
