Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s means we had THE BEST cartoons on Saturday morning, oh and pretty much every morning before school started. Oh and we had some pretty great things that came on when we arrived home from the school bus too, and one of my favorites was DuckTales. DuckTales was an amazing adventure of Donald Duck’s three nephews and their uncle Scrooge McDuck. Well, it’s 30 years later since the beginning of the first series and Disney is re-imagining DuckTales with a whole new cast and set of adventures.
We were able to experience DuckTales at the D23 Expo in Anaheim last weekend and it was pretty epic. Disney had set up a money bin full of plastic coins. They set up the money pit with 3D cameras that captured you as you jumped into the bin and the results were so fun. Here is my addition to the Money Bin shots.
The new animated comedy adventure “DuckTales” will premiere in a one-hour television movie to be presented for 24 consecutive hours, SATURDAY, AUGUST 12 (beginning at midnight EDT/PDT), on Disney XD. Then, the series will debut with two new episodes SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 (7:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., 10:30 p.m. EDT/PDT). Each will also be available on the Disney XD app and Disney XD VOD on these same dates.
Featuring a distinct animation style inspired by the classic Carl Barks’ comic designs, “DuckTales” chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his mischief-making triplet grandnephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie, temperamental nephew Donald Duck and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack; no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley; and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet’s newfound fierce friend.
