With Disney announcing a reboot of this classic 90's cartoon coming to Disney XD in 2017....
Let's Throwback To: Ducktales! (Woohoo!)
Ducktales is cartoon that ran from 1987-1990 that followed the adventures of billionaire duck Scrooge McDuck (Donald Duck's uncle) and his three great-nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. According to Forbes Magazine's Fictional 15, Scrooge McDuck is worth $8.2 billion dollars (only fourth place behind Santa Claus, Richie Rich, and Daddy Warbucks). At approximately 105 years old (80 at the time the show aired), the mining mogul resides in Duckberg where he keeps all his riches in cash and coins in a giant vault. He has never been married and never gives his money to charity.
Why it means something to us: As children of the 90's, we can't help but think of classic shows that we love when we're brainstorming for Throwback Thursday. This is not only a throwback, but a current event as Disney is rebooting the show for it's channel Disney XD in 2017. I remember watching this show along with other Disney classics like Under the Umbrella Tree, Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers, Talespin, The Adventures of the Gummi Bears, Darkwing Duck, and Fraggle Rock. My favorite thing about Ducktales was that Scrooge McDuck swam in his giant vault of gold coins and, hey, who doesn't wish they could do that?
Where can you find it now? Since it doesn't hit television again for another few years, enjoy episodes on YouTube or watch the classic opening sequence again and again right here!
