Here Are Some Facts About “DuckTales” That You Didn’t Know

Anyone who grew up in the 1990s can tell you about “DuckTales”. It has remained one of the most famous Disney films on television, regardless of whether you’re a fan or only know it in passing. Even after thirty years, the show continues to have an influence on viewers.

DuckTales is more than a children’s show. Through hundreds of comic books, a series of computer games, and two unique animated series, Clan McDuck have engaged and delighted fans of all ages for decades.

So, what is it about DuckTales that has piqued the interest of so many people? Why did this series appeal to so many nineties kids? Perhaps it was the idea of an elderly, miserly duck going on insane treasure hunts. Perhaps it was Scrooge’s and his nephews’ amusing familial relationship. Perhaps it was because the animation was of exceptional quality at that time. Whatever the case may be, this film created a huge impression on the generations of the 1990s.

But, how well-versed in DuckTales are you? This series has a long history, and with that history comes some intriguing behind-the-scenes happenings. There’s probably a lot about the program that you don’t know.

#1 The idea for creating a television show based on “Uncle Scrooge” is created by Carl Barks

“Uncle Scrooge” (stylized as “Uncle $crooge”) is a Disney comic book created by Carl Barks. It debuted as a spin-off of the popular Donald Duck series in Four Color Comics #386 (March 1952) and is still going on today.

Carl Barks’ early work focused on figures’ “in-between” motions. After gaining story-writing skills, he began drawing comics for Disney in the 1940s. All of the duck characters invented and developed by Barks became instant hits. So that Disney decided on a concept for a television program based on those characters. Despite the fact that Carl had retired in the 1960s, his writing and artwork were utilized as the inspiration for show’s stories.

#2 DuckTales was Disney’s first syndicated television show

In the summer of 1987, “DuckTales” began to release. Disney chose to air 65 episodes of “DuckTales” on weekday afternoons. The next seasons of the series also received huge attention. The final season of DuckTales aired in 1990, with a total of 100 episodes. And “The Golden Goose” was a two-part special that aired at the end of the season.

#3 The 1987 series does not separate the main cast/characters from the guest cast or supporting characters.

Alan Young played Scrooge in the series as well as the DuckTales computer game from 1989.

Russi Taylor was the voice of all three of Scrooge’s nephews. Throughout the span of the series, she also portrayed a few minor roles.

Launchpad McQuack, Scrooge’s pilot, featured voice actor Terence McGovern.

Chuck McCann made his voice appearance as Scrooge’s butler, Duckworth.

#4 Mark Mueller had written the theme song

Mark Mueller was 30 years old when he wrote the DuckTales theme song. It was the ideal peppy, catchy tune that would keep fans humming the title of the show for decades. The “woo-ooh!” jingle in the theme song is a big part of why it’s become so memorable.

#5 DuckTales was revived in 2017

Matt Youngberg and Francisco Angones brought the classic DuckTales series back to life in a brand-new relaunch with the same name. The show first aired on August 12th, 2017, and concluded on March 15th, 2021. The relaunch lasted three seasons, totaling 75 episodes. This revival is also highly appreciated by Donald Duck’s fans.
