New DuckTales Coming to Disney XD

New Ducktales Disney XD

New DuckTales will be told, on Disney XD.

The cabler announced on Wednesday that it was reviving the animated series, which ran for 100 episodes from 1987-90 (and spawned a feature film), with an eye on a 2017 premiere.

DuckTales has a special place in Disney’s TV animation history,” Disney XD SVP Mark Buhaj said in a statement. “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. Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation.”

The new series will again take viewers along as Scrooge McDuck, his curious/mischief-making grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and the temperamental Donald Duck embark on high-flying adventures worldwide. Other characters slated to appear are Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Launchpad McQuack, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell & Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys (Burger Beagle, Bouncer Beagle), Mrs. Beakley and Webbigail Vanderquack.

    Now that’s a series I never expected to be brought back

    Bring back Scrooge

  3. Chol H Yoon says:

    I’m old enough to remember the original ducktails comic strip and TV series. Hopefully the new ones can do justice to this beloved comics for the 21st century.

  4. Hopefully we’ll also get to see Gizmo Duck and other “newer” characters. An episode with Gizmo and Darwking Duck would be fantastic.

  5. Robert says:

    I do not know why but this show always made me fell good! The theme song always brighten my mood and the episodes were fun and the snuck in lessons to learn.

  6. My childhood self is so excited! I can’t wait! Even though I’ll be 30 when this comes out in 2017…Never too old to watch cartoons.

    It’s wonderful that this is coming back – a real children’s show – because a lot of what is supposed to be children’s programming now is much too mature.

    Bring back the whole Disney afternoon!

  11. Mark says:

    Please don’t be CGI.

  12. Diz says:

    This is all kinds of awesome! I can’t wait. This was my favorite cartoon as a kid.

  13. A.D. says:

    This is absolutely AMAZING! I am so excited! Hope Darkwing Duck, Tale Spin, and Rescue Rangers follow!

  14. Carl says:

    I hope Donald is a regular this time. Scrooge without Donald subverts Barks’s legacy.

  15. Nicole says:

    I hope they keep it as a cartoon!

    Is it weird that I had a crush on Launchpad as a kid?
