The new DuckTales reboot cartoon is all the rage. Woo-hoo! I was a huge fan as a kid, and I watched the first episode of the new reboot and quite enjoyed it. The show is fun all on its own, but it’s also clearly made with the sensibilities of a modern cartoon show. There are Easter Eggs galore and a real effort has clearly been made to create a larger, deeper mythology. All the good cartoons these days have a deep mythology.
If you haven’t seen the opening pair of episodes yet, you can check them out right now! Trust me, it’s a good show.
Now that we’re all on the same level, I hope you caught all the great Easter Eggs the first few episodes dropped. I won’t spoil them until after the jump, but I think this new series has the makings to launch a larger Disney Expanded Universe, and I’m all in favor of that!
Join me after the jump to see what I mean!
If, like me, you cut the cable cord years ago and have to find alternate means to watch TV shows, you might be wondering how you can watch the new DuckTales cartoon. Fortunately, Disney XD has decided to apparently put the whole thing up on YouTube! I fully support this technological marvel.
I haven’t watched it yet since I only discovered this video this morning before work. But you best believe I have my afternoon plans now! Enjoy the show!
I’m pretty sure I’m gonna try to watch the new Ducktales cartoon. I’ve got no reason not to. I loved the original, and I love how well cartoons are made today. I’m confident that the creative minds behind the new Ducktales have put together a quality show.
But maybe I won’t watch, because I’m lazy. At least we have this neat opening theme.
I’ll let you know if I watch. I’m excited for Gizmoduck. And I have to believe that someone, somewhere has discussed including Darkwing Duck in their new universe.
If you were anything like me, you were wondering if Gizmoduck would appear in the new Ducktales cartoon. Welp…he will! And he’ll be voiced by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Neat!
Gizmoduck was my favorite character in the original cartoon — because I, uh, like superheroes. So I had my hopes up for the reboot cartoon. This is just a fun bit of confirmation that somethings in this world are A-OK.
Now we just need Darkwing Duck…
I was a big fan of Ducktales back in the day. Heck, my childhood stuffed animal was Louie, the green one! So it’s gonna be weird to watch the new cartoon with all the new voices.
I love the cast in this cartoon. It’s some of my favorite funny people. But those voices, especially Uncle Scrooge, are going to take some getting used to.
