I’m truly enjoying this series so far. I thought the first part of the episode was a little shaky, but the second part was genius. As others have pointed out, the references to the original DuckTales as well as to other Disney Afternoon properties were awesome. I have to admit that many of you were sharper than I was in catching these references, but my ears did perk up on hearing St. Canard mentioned and I noticed Armstrong in Scrooge’s garage. The new animation style is absolutely stunning—the dragon scene, in particular. I love the comic book-esque design. It kept me watching when I still wasn’t quite sure what to think of the show. The theme song is also on point. It’s a nice homage to the original—but it has its own personality. The singer really makes it her own and her interpretation works for the modern/retro blend of the show. Listen to the theme songs side by side, and you’ll notice they complement each other beautifully. I like that the three nephews will have different personalities in this series. That’s one of my (few) complaints about the original. The voice acting mostly works, even if it takes some time getting used to. David Tennant has nearly impossible shoes to fill but manages quite well. Kate Micucci does an outstanding job with the new Webby Vanderquack. Launchpad and the three nephews’ new voices were a little off-putting at first, but I didn’t mind them in time. Mrs. Beakley/Beagley has become a dominatrix, which threw me off, but I think the new voice fits the character. Keith Ferguson, well known for his work as Bloo on Foster’s Home, captured the essence of Flintheart Glomgold. In fact, I’d say the only thing that needs to find its footing is the humor. Webby’s desire to eat a hamburger was a bit strange, considering ducks aren’t usually carnivores. The Photoshop reference also didn’t work. Launchpad’s lines were probably the best. (“Yes sir, random kid I just met!” and “Oh no, the ground.”) But I think the writers will perfect this in time. Overall, I was delighted by what I saw. The production crew’s attention to detail, especially in the references and animation, reflects a healthy respect for the original series. You get the sense that they grew up with the 80s DuckTales and are like little kids again with the prospect of working on this reboot; they bring that kind of enthusiasm to the table. Rarely has a reboot been so respectful of the original while creating its own identity. Bravo!
