    Everything old is new again, including DuckTales! Disney is bringing back the beloved cartoon starring Scoorge McDuck and his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald Duck with a new series as part of Disney XD.

    "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," Marc Buhaj, senior vice president of programming and the general manager of Disney XD, said in a statement. "Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation."

    Other beloved DuckTales characters returning to the fold for new adventures include Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Launchpad McQuak, Flinheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell & Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys, Mrs. Beakely and Webbigail Vanderquack. Enough duck puns for you?

    You can refresh your memory with the original series on WATCH Disney Channel app.

    The original DuckTales ran from 1987-1990 and lasted 100 episodes. The new DuckTales will launch in 2017.

    I'll probably watch the first episode, at least. I better get a great theme song out of this, dammit. I'd be fine with them using the original.

    It's about damn time!

    They'd better use the original! Easily one of the best cartoon theme songs of all time. A-woo-ooh!

    It's funny, I got an itch to watch me some Duck Tales just a few weeks ago. Still holds up. Love that show.

    I think both are acceptable but, yes, that's the more common expression.

    at last, more tales of ducks. there has been a distinct lack of tales involving ducks in the last decade or so and I for one am glad this artistic misstep will now be corrected going forward.

    With all of the collections of Carl Barks and Don Rosa comics coming out, and now this, it's a good time to be a duck fan.

    Now if only Donald could get more screen time in this version...

    Am I the only one who gets annoyed when they remake old cartoons and kids' shows for "a new generation"? What happened to just putting the old shows out again? Or parenting the way I do, with DVDs of old school material?

    But yeah...definitely keep the theme song. That should be the first non-negotiable.

    Funny - Star Wars canon is discarded and suddenly all the Lit regs show up in a Ducktales thread.

    Any fan of the original series should check out the Duck Tales Remastered game that came out a couple years ago- gorgeous update of the original NES game but with a plot that actually makes sense and the full voice cast reprising their roles.

    It also features the greatest song on the NES, gloriously remastered:

    Much like Guile's Theme, that's a piece of music that just makes anything better.

    Actually, that sounds like the original brief for Ducktales to me: "remake these classic comics into a cartoon, reinvented for a new generation!"
    Which is why it never appealed to me. I'm from a generation that old. And the Disney DVDs I watch with my kids are cartoons from before the second World War.

    thanks to this reminder of its existence, the ducktales theme song has now replaced "call me al" as the song currently lodged in my brain and i'm not sure if it's an improvement.

    DuckTales has rarely been off the air, and it's been out on DVD for a decade (though I dunno if they ever released the whole show, I just have the first three volumes).

    And hm, I do have the DuckTales remake on steam. It is a very good remake -- not only are the mechanics very carefully reproduced, but the whole thing of using your score to unlock concept arts and things is s nice way to make me actually care about an otherwise meaningless game statistic.

    Right now is a good time to get a Paul Simon cartoon on the air and then have it canceled, so that he does end up a cartoon in a cartoon graveyard.

    The Duck Tales theme song is my alarm clock. I woke up this morning to it, and then I go onto my computer to learn this. Today is going to be a Ducktales day.
