ducktales

Life is like a hurricane, here in Duck Burg
Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes, it’s a duck blur
Might solve a mystery, or rewrite history!

DUCKTALES! (woo ooh!)

 

How’s this for Throwback Thursday? Disney just announced that they will be rebooting one of their beloved cartoon series Ducktales! Take a look at the new and re-imagined art above – Is that Launchpad McQuack I see?

Here’s the newly-released teaser:

 

For those too young to remember, Ducktales is an original cartoon series that aired from 1987 to 1990. Based on Uncle Scrooge and other Duck universe comic books, Ducktales follows the (mis)adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his three grandnephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. The show spawned a 1990 theatrical release called “DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp.”

Supporting characters include Launchpad McQuack (my favorite), Webbigail “Webby” Vanderquack, Gyro Gearloose, Flintheart, Duckworth, Glomgold, Magica DeSpell and Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys, and Mrs. Beakley. Will we see Donald Duck again this time?

DUCKTALES - Disney's "DuckTales," an all-new animated comedy series based on the Emmy Award-winning series, will again star Disney's enduringly popular characters: Scrooge McDuck, his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald Duck. Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series is set to debut in 2017 on Disney XD. (Disney XD)

DuckTales is executively produced by Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse), with Francisco Angones (Wander Over Yonder) as story editor and co-producer, and Sean Jimenez (Gravity Falls) as art director. The reboot sees a Summer 2017 airing on the Disney Channel with Season 1 consisting of 21 half-hour episodes and two one-hour specials.
