Those who grew up in the late 80’s will be happy to hear that their favorite team of adventurers will be returning to T.V on Disney XD in 2017. Duck Tales is known for its bright animation, popular characters, adventures, and catchy theme song. The series will feature Scrooge McDuck and his grandnephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Also coming back are Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Launchpad McQuack, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell and Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys (Burger Beagle, Bouncer Beagle), Mrs. Beakley and Webbigail Vanderquack. Disney is very excited about bringing back one of their most popular cartoons shows, Marc Buhaj, Disney XD’s Senior Vice President of Programming and General Manager stated,

“DuckTales’ has a special place in Disney’s TV animation history, It drew it’s 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.”

I wasn’t around when this show was on air which was 1987-1990, well don’t you feel old. I am glad that Disney is doing this because as I stated before on my Powerpuff Girls article, that T.V networks for kids should start rebooting some of their most popular series. So far Disney and Cartoon Network have now started rebooting a popular series and now we wait on Nickelodeon. I will keep saying this until it is in the minds of each network, it is okay when you are not able to create new content for kids, looking back into the past and giving new life to something the past generation loved and giving to the new generation will generate more ratings and open up new doors. By new doors I mean not just reviving past series but for Disney this means bringing retro products for us in our 20’s-30’s and I can think of a lot of products to sell. Disney will always be targeting families especially the kids, but please Disney don’t forget us who grew up in the late 80s to early 2000’s, and with Duck Tales coming back, we thank you.

Duck Tales is set to return on the Disney XD channel in 2017.
