Darkwing Duck Action Figures

Funko has been churning out endless amounts of their POP Vinyl figures for pretty much every facet of pop culture, but they’ve also been expanding their toys and collectibles to less stylized action figures. For their latest endeavor, they’re reaching back into some of Disney’s most beloved animated shows from the 1990s.

In November, Funko will be releasing a series of action figures from DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, TalesSpin and Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers as part of their new Disney Afternoon Collection. Check out the first figures in this collection below. Read More »

DuckTales Sneak Peek

Two days ago, DuckTales returned with an all new style and cast on Disney XD. Season one of the 2-D animated series is 21 half-hour episodes and two hour-long specials. Before the show even premiered, Disney ordered a season two. They’re clearly confident in the reboot. If they weren’t, then maybe they wouldn’t have released the first episode of the revival online.

Below, watch the hour-long DuckTales pilot.

Being a kid of the ’90s, I discovered Ducktales near the end of its popularity. Though my Disney Afternoon interest leaned more towards Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers or Gargoyles, it was always obvious that there was something special about Ducktales. With Indiana Jones style adventure and the humor of the McDuck crew, Scrooge and his family never lost their sparkle.

But since I didn’t really get to experience Ducktales in its heyday, I was excited to check out the new reboot on Disney XD. And with a promising cast (including Doctor Who‘s David Tennant as our favorite billionaire duck) and some very interesting character designs, this seemed like one very promising project.

Darkwing Duck on DuckTales

This weekend brings the premiere of the new DuckTales animated series to Disney XD. It’s a new spin on the fan favorite show from the 1990s featuring the globe-trotting adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his three nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, this time brought to life by the voices of David Tennant, Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan.

Along with the new spin of the same characters, it turns out DuckTales will do something that the original series never did before. As we learned last fall, despite sharing the characters Launchpad McQuack and Gizmoduck, DuckTales and the other anthropomorphic duck animated series Darkwing Duck took place in different universes. But when it comes to the new DuckTales series, that won’t be the case. Find out more below. Read More »

If you were a kid growing up in the ’80s and ’90s with access to American television, I’d guess there’s about a 50% chance that you know the DuckTales theme song by heart. Here’s how ubiquitous it was: I didn’t even watch the show and I still somehow managed to absorb every word of it.

Good news for those who anyone who still has that kicking around in your head after all these years: you don’t have to relearn any lyrics for the new version of DuckTales that’s coming to Disney XD. The network has released the new main titles of the show, which features an updated take on the classic theme song, as well as an official premiere date for when Scrooge, Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie will be heading to the small screen.

ducktales teaser featuring donal duck

Earlier this month, Disney unveiled the first trailer for the DuckTales reboot featuring the voices of David Tennant (Scrooge), Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan (Huey, Dewey & Louie), Beck Bennett (Launchpad McQuack), and Kate Micucci (Webby Vanderquack). While the new voices were a bit off-putting for a fan of the original series, I was actually blown away by the retro design style of this traditional 2D animated show.

Now Disney XD has released another short DuckTales teaser focusing on Donald Duck (voiced by Tony Anselmo in the new series) and it just looks fantastic. Watch the Ducktales teaser, entitled “Donald Duck’s Tales,” below!
