The good news, Disney has decided to revive the fan favorite DuckTales cartoon. The bad news, you’ll have to wait until 2017 to see it.
The series ran as part of the Disney Afternoon line up in the late ’80s/early ’90s. This time it will show up on Disney XD.
All your favorite characters will be returning in the new series: Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, Louie, Launchpad McQuack, Donald Duck, Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell, Poe, Ma Beagle, the Beagle Boys, Mrs. Beakley, and Webbigail Vanderquack.
“DuckTales has a special place in Disney’s TV animation history, it drew its inspiration from Disney Legend Carl Barks’ comic books and through its storytelling and artistic showmanship, set an enduring standard for animated entertainment that connects with both kids and adults. Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation,” said Marc Buhaj—Senior Vice President, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD.
For those born after the early ’90s, DuckTakes is based on the Donald Duck comics created by Carl Banks. It was known for great stories that sometimes retold classic stories with a Duckburg twist.
