The DuckTalesreboot is here and it’s amazing.
DuckTales, in case you don’t know, was a wonderful animated series that aired 100 episodes between 1987 and 1990. This was a cartoon with an impressive legacy. Based on the Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge comics of Carl Barks, which are not only some of the finest comics ever made, but helped influence the Indiana Jones franchise (which the cartoon then borrowed some flavor from), DuckTales was a perfect blend of adventure and afternoon cartoon comedy. It also boasted the catchiest theme tune in history, and spawned a video game that still holds up as one of the best ever produced for the NES.
Season 1 has finished up with Season 2 on its way before the end of 2018. While you wait for that new season why not catch up on our reviews of every single episode?
