Whatever happened to Disney DuckTales? You remember the cartoon series that had such characters as Uncle Scrooge, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. It ran on TV from 1987-1990 usually in the afternoons after school.
Some other notable characters I remember are:
- Duckworth the butler & Mrs. Beakley the nanny.
- Launchpad McQuack & Doofus Drake
- Fenton Crackshell and his alter ego Gizmoduck (my favorite charcter)
- Magica De Spell, Flintheart Glomgold & the Beagle Boys. I remember Magica De Spell and the Beagle Boys were always after Scrooges Number one Dime..
If you look at the picture above you can see the complete cast from Duckberg. DuckTales was a great show and to this day I can still sing the intro song. DuckTales ooooh ooooh..
Thinking back I also remember a movie they released after the TV show called DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp. It was good and from reminiscing I am going to have to see if I can find it for purchase. Amazon has the complete series on DVD available here. Which would be a good birthday present to myself
The last bit of Disney Merchandise I remember from Duck Tales was the Nintendo Game. From what I remember it was quite challenging and took up many of my afternoons after school. No cheat codes or Nintendo Power for me.
Here is the video from ScrewAttack:
DuckTales was Disney first attempt at Syndication and luckily it worked out well and opened the door to many classic cartoons from my childhood. I think Disneyworld needs to open a store with all the classic merchandise from these old cartoons and movies for the nostalgic people like myself.
Many of these classic cartoons, tv shows, and movies contributed to my Disney Addiction today.
If you remember DuckTales let me know what you remember in the comment section below.
