I am a big fan of the DuckTales revival cartoon. I am an especially big fan of the Expanded Disney Cartoon Universe the showrunners seem to be building. I was worried when they made Darkwing Duck a TV show instead of a superhero…but the most recent episode reversed course, introducing Drake Mallard and making him a real superhero inspired by the show.
Well guess what, folks: all my dreams are coming true! Announced at Comic-Con, there’s going to be a whole party bus full of characters joining the fun!
A lot of them appear on my list of characters I wanted to see on DuckTales.
Let’s run them down:
We’ve got Daisy Duck!
Chip & Dale’s Rescue Rangers!
TaleSpin is confirmed there in the upper right corner. Only we’re getting Kit Cloudkicker and Molly Cunningham as older characters than their young selves from the original. That could be neat.
Darkwing Duck is coming back, and alongside him is a new Gosalyn!
Bubba the Caveduck!
Gene the Genie!
And it’s hard to make out in the upper right, but to the left of Bubba is a more realistic looking Butterbear the Wuzzle! The Wuzzles are coming!
So yeah, essentially everything I want from the DuckTales cartoon is coming true. Check out Entertainment Weekly for some close-up shots of some of the characters. And this Reddit thread for even more.
You can also check out this nifty trailer, though not all the characters are featured.
This is turning out to be a very fun Comic-Con for me and all my geeky hopes and dreams!
