After not speaking to each other for ten years, old-timer Scrooge McDuck is reunited with Donald Duck after he asks Scrooge to watch his three nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie for the day. The presence of the newcomers rekindles Scrooge's spirit of adventure, leading the group to go on many new treasure-hunting expeditions, while the nephews and their new friend Webby seek the truth behind their uncles' broken relationship and the mysterious disappearance of Huey, Dewey, and Louie's mother and Donald's sister Della Duck.
Why It Rocks
- The animation is well-done!
- Gorgeous art style.
- All actors do a great job voicing their characters
- Huey, Dewey and Louie are all given more individual personalities.
- Characters like Webby are given much better personalities.
- Some newly introduced characters like Lena De Spell are awesome.
- Unlike the original series where he was in the Navy and only made cameos, Donald gets to tag along.
- The episodes are well-written and well-paced.
- It recaptures the spirit of the show.
- The intro sounds so awesome.
- Darkwing Duck and The Cogs from Toontown Online makes a cameo appearance!
- For the very first time in Disney animated history, Huey, Dewey, and Louie's mother Della Duck makes her animated debut, and plays a major part of the show's plot.
- Magica De Spell's revenge plot in the first season is very clever, and she very nearly wins.
- Scrooge is still stingy. But then again, that's his whole character. And at least here, this quality is downplayed in favor of showing Scrooge's adventurous side.
In Rotten Tomatoes, the show has a perfect 100% rating and is considered one of the best reboots of an old classic cartoon.
- Due to the death of Alan Young, Scrooge isn't voiced by him. Instead, he is voiced by David Tennant.
