The only bad news about the DuckTales announcement? We have to wait until 2017!
“DuckTales has a special place in Disney's TV animation history. It drew its 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,” said Marc Buhaj, Senior VP Programming and General Manager of Disney XD. “Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation."
The Emmy-winning program aired 100 episodes as part of the daily syndicated cartoon block, “The Disney Afternoon,” from 1987-90. It also spawned an animated film in 1990, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp.
