TV Series of the Month – DuckTales

This month’s TV Series: DuckTales (1987-1990)

After Donald decides to take a job on a ship requiring constant travel, he entrusts his uncle Scrooge McDuck with the care of Huey, Dewey and Louie. McDuck is one of the wealthiest inhabitants of Duckberg. McDuck leads quite an adventurous life as he tries to secure and grow his wealth; and in turn, Huey, Dewey and Louie find themselves going on many grand adventures.

DuckTales is the first of three fantastic animated shows that the newly formed Walt Disney Television Animation put out during the late 1980s/early 1990s (the other two being Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers and TaleSpin – both of which I also love).

DuckTales aired for three seasons. It is still my favorite cartoon. The theme song is great. The characters are fun and the adventures feature strong storytelling. DuckTales is a staple of many of our childhoods and well worth revisiting. The video game is also really good (it was recently remastered).

Trailer: Here
Available on: DVD (Volume 1 and the Film that opens the series)
