Launchpad in this episode seemed more like he belonged in a Darkwing Duck episode, and there was that "Night of the Living Spud" episode with the vampire potato in that series. The episode reminded me of the Ducktales video game somewhat. Catherine Tate voices Magica De Spell, according to Flickering Myth. I was a bit surprised to hear her voice so soon, as I thought she would be one of those characters who wouldn't speak for several episodes. The original started off with a 5 part story, then became mostly stand alone episodes for the first 65 episodes. So far, I like the ongoing story arc. A lot of the most memorable moments from the 1987 series are from the multi-part episodes, which this show is trying to do on a regular basis. However, there is a standalone I vividly remember from the 1987 series, Duck to the Future, in which Magica in essence "wins" over Scrooge McDuck, gets McDuck Enterprises, and has Huey, Dewey, and Louie working for her 40 years in the future, which would be 2027 if the present year was intended to be 1987 when it first aired. That is one of the stories that could be interesting to see told in this series.
