Sheesh, now I feel dumb. I haven't seen the old show in ages, but I read the Life and Times of Scrooge a while ago and thought it was the same in the show.

Justin Jones

What the fuck did they do to Mrs. Beakley?
Why is it impossible for any female character to not be a hyper competent, flawless """badass"""? Same thing happened to Webbey, it's beyond infuriating now.

You mean they turned Webby…

even hotter?

Isaiah Diaz

If they're just merging her and Duckworth into one character then I actually kinda like it.

Luke Harris
Luke Harris

Other beloved characters slated to be in the new stories 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.

Nicholas Jenkins
Nicholas Jenkins

In that case, Mrs. Beakley should act generally proper to counteract Webbigail's new hyper personality. Her "Mama Bear" mode would kick in once she knows Webby's in danger, like the threat that kidnaps her wouldn't expect the old woman to battle back being so old fashioned and proper.

Beagle Boy: "What's a lady like youse gunna do?"

Mrs. Beakley: "Fight like one, of course!"

Angel Ward
Angel Ward

It kind of seems to me that the core group is Scrooge, Webby, and the triplets, while Donald, Beakly, and Launchpad rotate though the position of final team member and transportation (Launchpad flies, Donald sails, Beakley drives.) In some parts of the theme song, you sometimes see Beakley in in the group but no Donald, and Donald in the group with no Beakley.

It's a new take on the show, so they don't have to explain the change, but it'd be neat if they had it so she was originally plump and sweet like her old version, but after being dragged into so many misadventures by Scrooge or dickbags trying to steal his shit, she is hardly phased by it now.

Or maybe she's actually an ex-soldier/mercenary that Scrooge only hired as a maid because it's cheaper to pay a maid than it is to pay a bodyguard.

Nicholas Barnes

I feel like the mastering of the song could have been better. The beat is a bit too loud and the vocals, while still audible, are kinda drowned out by everything else.
Also I listened to the original right after. The newer instrumentation certainly sounds "fuller" as there's a lot more going on it's also louder. Whether that makes it better is up to personal preference. The sound effects don't feel out of place.
The old intro would mainly just cut from one scene to the next, and the new one had more varied transitions and references the comic book origins of the series as it does so. Also in the new intro there's always a lot happening on screen and the camera is almost always moving.

Ryder Torres
Ryder Torres

The beat is a bit too loud and the vocals, while still audible, are kinda drowned out by everything else.
This applies to every pop song from the last twenty years.

Jackson King
Jackson King

It's a nice proper minute long intro like the old days of intros. The comic paneling is nice.
Launchpads new plane looks like a nice hybrid of classic flying boat plane like the Sea Duck from Tale Spin and it's own original design with what looks like landing wheels.

She hit the fucking gym, lost the fat and gained the muscle.

Hudson Richardson

Ryan Cooper

They stated that they were making her more into like the "british nany", like the old reality shows had. In that she is hyper compitant and not just going to flail around if something bad happens. Also Duckworth is still around as well from what I gather on his Tumblr.

Thomas Bailey

Grayson Lee
Grayson Lee

Its a new money antagonist "Mark Beaks" who is based on Zukerberg archetype. Instead of focusing on money, he wants pr buzz, likes and followers.

I expect him to be the guy who sends his twitter followers to badmouth others companies and basically be whiny if someone else is center of attention rather than him.

Thomas Reyes
Thomas Reyes

Also forgot to mention, Glomgold in this universe IS still South American, however, after seeing Scrooge's fame he decided to "out Scrooge, Scrooge"

An in-joke we had for him was that originally in the comics, he was South African, and then they made him Scottish in [the original] DuckTales, so we really leaned into that and decided that when Glomgold saw that Scrooge was a Scottish billionaire, he decided to be the cheap knock-off. More Scottish and even richer.

Oliver Torres
Oliver Torres

I like the series, the only thing that makes me cringe is that they decided to "latino-ize" Fenton Quackshell.

Everyone else though seems like a good fit.

Luis Nelson

I wouldn't say that, as a lot of people said, you can't improve perfection, so they decided to go with their own version of the song for their own version of the comics/show. I think it's catchy enough and does a decent 10's remix of the original.

Isaiah Wilson

I just watched The Great Mouse Detective, for the first time since my childhood.
It had murder, guns, smoking, alcohol, sexy mouse cabaret dancers, and females needing rescue. The type of stuff we'll never again see in a Disney product.
Also, coincidentally Alan Young was in it as the inventor.

Nicholas Gonzalez

Could they go without injecting social media bullshit for just ONE show? This shit is already dated and awkward and social media isn't even dead yet.

The only thing I don't like is how "adult" the kids sound. They didn't even try to change their voices at all to fit the roles.

Gavin Howard

Right there in the wiki, mate.

Perfect.

Why is a pilot like Launchpad even hired by Scoorge McDuck in the first place? Or Darkwing Duck for that matter?

Eli Russell
Eli Russell

1. Can Fly
2. Cheap
3. Flying to remote locations where a crash landing usually does no damage that anyone still alive cares about.
4. Any repairs taken out of his salary.

Jeremiah Roberts
Jeremiah Roberts

Forgot to add,

For Darkwing:
See 1,2 and 4. 3 changed to "Usually flying into enemy bases/territory so damage is actually helpful.

Justin Moore
Justin Moore

I thought part of his character was in the air he's incredibly skilled, it's just that he can't land.

Adds up when in the second part of most adventures he's able to get a complete shitheap off the ground, then fly it back to civilization.

David Walker
David Walker

It is an "alternate universe"

Tyler Harris
Tyler Harris

Thats why I said he was cheap, it's like saying "I can perform perfect heart surgery in seconds, but I always seem to give the guy an infection while closing up. Scrooge has enough money and business sense to give him the chance.

Josiah Sanchez
Josiah Sanchez

The real reason is "comic relief"

Elijah Torres
Elijah Torres

I thought part of his character was in the air he's incredibly skilled, it's just that he can't land.
Not so much. See: 5 minutes in. inb4 inevitable "webm the original version", do it yourselves folks

There was also one where he hears an alarm in one of Scrooge's banks, flies in to stop the thieves, gets the sign he's pulling behind his helo snagged on a tower, and destroys the whole building in the crash. All without ever trying to land.

Jackson Wood
Jackson Wood

How is this a bad thing? Webby and Ms. Beakley were the fucking weakest parts of the original show. The new design looks slick and gives her a reason to even take part in the adventures. And webby made me want to actually kill myself.

Now I know the tumblr cunts are going to fuckin PRAISE just these two characters and nothing else. But honestly, if they don't just spit out "LOL GIRLS R TEH BETTAR" lines I'm certain we'll have two major improvements in this new show.

Not a huge fan of the VA work- but it's good enough. Writing it better than expected. Animation in the intro looks great- less impressed with show itself.

What the fuck did they do to Scrooge's voice? Whoever they cast sounds fucking terrible, like next-level amounts of awful.

Jordan Hughes

It's David Tennant believe it or not, who was probably told to sound like Alan Young while still "making it his own"

Nolan Campbell
Nolan Campbell

I don't see it as an improvement, and I had no problem with them in the original. I liked them being feminine.
These new designs (and I'm sure their personalities too) are all "Grrrrls can do anything gross boys can do, and better! We ain't no damsels in distress!"
Because that's 99% of female characters now.

John Mitchell
John Mitchell

Doesn't sound anything like Alan Young, except for being scottish, and I hate it.

Adrian Lopez
Adrian Lopez

Also, that one user is going to be pissed about fat Glomgold.
Nope. I'm pissed too. He was my favourite character.

He's supposed, as far as I can tell, to be a mirror image of Scrooge McDuck, but without a family. So why, then, would he be fat? He looks less like Scrooge, and it also implies that he eats a lot (and food is expensive).

It might be one of these. He does have feathers that stand out on top of his head ("hair")

Justin Stewart

"bigger, faster, and cheaper"

Jackson King

Well then, who would you pick as Alan Young's replacement?

Evan Parker
Evan Parker

Well, not a mirror image, but a unscrupulous asshole, cheater and thieving rival. And he did envy Scrooge, at least in the "Life and Times" continuity.

I'm going to save judgment for when the show airs.

Jordan Walker
Jordan Walker

So he's sort of the Wario to Scrooge's Mario.

Asher Foster

Isaiah Long

Scrooge has enough money and business sense to give him the chance.
Hiring a proper pilot would cost less than repairing your plane every time you go somewhere. is a better explanation.

Colton Clark
Colton Clark

Well, the impression I got from reading the Don Rosa and Carl Barks comics, was that Scrooge's more humane qualities arose from his interactions with family, and that if he had never met them, he would be as unscrupulous as Flintheart. For example, when the two compete by seeing who can create the biggest pile of money, an indian tries to sell them an elexire that can shrink money. Scrooge is going to buy it, but his family stops and shames him, so he decides against it; and Flintheart buys it instead.

Evan Hill
Evan Hill

Why is Launchpad so inherently funny? Even in the Darkwing Duck comic book I can't stop laughing at what he does and says.
And reminder that he will forever be the best sidekick, the mass had spoken.

Jonathan Lewis
Jonathan Lewis

The canonical explanation is that Scrooge deems him the cheapest on the market (even accounting all the collateral damage) and will fly anywhere, at any time and no matter how bad the odds are stacked against him.
Darkwing keeps him around because Launchpad was one of his greatest fans and he even revealed his own identity just to him as a token of their friendship IIRC.

I can't directly name someone but my problem with Tenant is he doesn't sound old enough.
They should have picked someone older, and Scottish obviously. I think they went with Tenant simply because of fandom reasons.

Isaac Smith

New look + old song

Brody Lee
Brody Lee

So much better. The original is the best, the bass and vocal levels are perfect.

Parker Gomez
Parker Gomez

Oh, yes, in "Life and Times" he gives ups his morals in the name of profit, and I believe that is what sends him into isolation.

But Flinthart was already awful when young Scrooge (who was still trying to make his fortune square) met him. He was going to be killed, Scrooge helps him and he betrays Scrooge the first chance he gets.

Lincoln Adams
Lincoln Adams

Now that's much better.

Jace Rogers
Jace Rogers

The big robot Gyro made is also with the villains. If I had to guess, Mark Beaks will hack Gyro's tech or something like that.

Considering how much of the preview so far is focusing on mystical and magic elements (the golden dragon and ghost and shit in the previews, sasquatch and eternal candle and magic time-travel clock in the shorts), I'm starting to wonder if they're holding back on Magica because she'll be the surprise overarching villain or something.

Owen Garcia
Owen Garcia

Yes, but Gyro has a bad habit of inventing things that usually hinder scrooge. Like the first robot he made for Scrooge to protect the money bin, he did protect it, from everyone, even scrooge.

Grayson Ramirez
Grayson Ramirez

Sure, but combine that with Lil' Bulb also being with the villains, and the story editor explaining on tumblr that all of Gyro's tech runs on the same basic technology, it really does seem like either Gyro's a surprise villain (hope not) or he's having his tech hijacked- in which case, I'd think the millionaire based on tech is the best guess as to who's doing it.

Eli Price
Eli Price

So, is Mark Beaks the reboot's answer to Rockerduck (third super billionaire who's much younger)?

Sebastian Bailey
Sebastian Bailey

So, are they going to keep Fenton as just a superhero to make him more distinct from Donald?

Carter Edwards
Carter Edwards

They have concept art of him without the suit, so I imagine he'll still be Scrooge's accountant.

Problems:

1. Why the fuck is it not live action?
2. Why the fuck is Scrooge not played by Sir Patrick Stewart?
3. Why the fuck is Glumgold not played by Sir Anthony Hopkins?
4. Why the fuck is Ma Beagle not played by Kathy Bates?
5. Why the fuck is Launchpad not played by Sean Bean?
6. Why the fuck are Huey, Dewey, and Louie not played by Tom Hardy, Martin Freeman, and Simon Pegg respectively?
7. Why the fuck is Webby not played by Emma Watson?
8. Why the fuck is Dogbert not played by Idris Elba?
9. Why the fuck aren't all the dogs in Duckberg played by niggers, and the ducks played by whites?
10. Why the fuck is this not directed by Paul Thomas Anderson with themes from There Will Be Blood?

Gabriel Richardson

Change Kathy Bates to Mrs Beakley, now it's perfect.
