DuckTales is a cartoon television show by Disney which ran four seasons from 1987 to 1990 for a total of 100 episodes. Most of the show's characters and setting, as well as the plot for many episodes, were based on the comic book series Uncle Scrooge. In the show, Donald Duck leaves for the Navy and leaves his three nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie in the care of his extremely wealthy Uncle Scrooge whose large fortune causes him to be the target of burglars.
I remember seeing advertisements for DuckTales and seeing the first episode on TV. I really liked the show as a child, and watched it everyday after school. I can still remember the theme song, and the plot of many episodes even though I haven't seen it since 1990.
The show was so popular that it spawned a lot of additional media including:
- Uncle Scrooge (Comic) - The basis of the show.
- DuckTales (Gladstone comic)
- DuckTales (Disney comic)
- DuckTales (Boom! Studios comic)
- DuckTales (NES)
- DuckTales: The Quest for Gold
- DuckTales 2
- DuckTales: Remastered
- DuckTales: Scrooge's Loot
