The first season of the DuckTales cartoon revival ended a couple weeks ago, and I finally got around to watching the last string of episodes this past weekend, including the epic finale. Considering how much I’ve ranted about the show on this blog, I wanted to give my thoughts on the first season. For the most part, I liked it!
TV Show Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
I was originally going to review the first season of Disenchantment, Matt Groening’s new Netflix cartoon, but I immediately lost all interest in that List of Six after I stopped working on it for a couple days. Mostly I just wanted to write about how much I disliked Elfo.
Whereas I like pretty much everybody on DuckTales and I think it’s a worthy reboot of this beloved cartoon from my childhood. It’s got some obvious flaws here and there, but on a whole, it was an enjoyable show. And I’m excited for future seasons.
Join me after the jump for my full review of DuckTales! There will also be FULL SPOILERS for the first season.
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…
