So how excited was I yesterday to find out there will be NEW episodes coming in 2017? SO EXCITED! According to Deadline, Disney XD has ordered a new animated comedy based on the Emmy-winning 1987-1990 cartoon series DuckTales that “will follow Scrooge McDuck, his curious and mischief-making grandnephews—Huey, Dewey and Louie—and the optimistic yet temperamental Donald Duck as they embark on high-flying adventures worldwide.” Oh, and also “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” will make appearances as well. No mention of Fenton Crackshell (Gizmoduck) or Drake Mallard (Darkwing Duck), but I'm hopeful!
I also have it on good authority that in these new episodes, they are either going to solve a mystery or even rewrite history! I'm looking forward to seeing what adventures they have in store for Scrooge and his nephews. But until 2017, I guess I'll just have to wait patiently, like a good Junior Woodchuck, and keep reading my guidebook.
