Title card.

DuckTales is a cartoon television show set in the DuckTales universe that ran four seasons from 1987 to 1990 for a total of 100 episodes. The show was created by Disney and most of the show's characters, its setting, and many of the episode's plots were based on Carl Barks's 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 before it was released 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.

Review

Good

  • The show has a lot of variety not just in settings and plots, but in characters.
  • The backgrounds are very well painted, and the animation is quite fluid for a television show.
  • The voice acting was very good, especially from Alan Young.
  • The show has a wonderful theme song and is scored quite well.
  • The show has some nice jokes and gags that only older viewers will get.

Bad

  • Duckburg has pretty incompetent law enforcement. Scrooge's money is often at risk, and rarely protected.
  • Since it is a kid's show, the scenes of danger are pretty weak and contrived. You know nothing bad is ever going to happen to the characters.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
