    Life is like a hurricane here in Ducktown. Ducktown makes you feel good, it's a Ducktown. Ducktown has history, embroiled in mystery… Ducktown! Whoo-oo!

    Saw this on the DuckTales page on the Disney Wiki and I think this would have been really cool.

    Episode 1 and 2 review

    Okay this was a very good pilot, only complaint no Beagles Boys. Still a solid start to getting its foundation.

    I liked that Donald is not a complete idiot, that is why has been reduced over the years heck in the old classic shorts days, I have see Donald this smart. What world am I living in.

    The nephews they gain some individual personalities here and their own voices, Webby is much improved, even Mrs. Beagly here is improved, I liked how she is not afraid of Scrooge, and Launchpad he is hilarious as always.

    So Glomgold is the first villain which surprised me, I thought we would start with the Beagle Boys, but he is Scrooge's arch nemesis, and I love how Donald said he can't keep track of Scrooge's enemies. He is treating but hilarious. Though if the show had a big bad villain, he just be the underling.

    Besides the usual suspect of characters that we know and love, a character I liked was the female henchmen, if Daisy doesn't show up in the series, I am not oppose to her and Donald having some kind of relationship. I hope we see her again.

    All and all a good start, the world looks interesting to me, though someone tell me what happened to Duckworth, it seems Mrs. Beagly and Launchpad have taking all of his previous jobs.

    And how could i forget, the nephews mother, Donald's sister, could she be alive?

    The pilot two-parter was fun and laid the groundwork for future story-arcs/mysteries. You can tell that the people who worked on Gravity Falls and Wander Over Yonder are now working on this show. I'm going to keep up with this show :thumbsup

    I really did enjoy this premiere, it had a lot of energy and fun to it, though maybe went by a bit too quickly, I felt it may have needed another half-hour at least (Though maybe not as padded as the five-parter that kicked off the original show).

    Does the Disney XD app require a channel subscription?

    No it does not.

    By the way, the episodes are great. The cast is fantastic, and while I'm here more for the storytelling than the references, both aspects are delivered well. Also now Donald has a personal connection with at least someone in Scrooge's rogues gallery, so it works

    Noelle Stevenson (Lumberjanes) wrote the pilot.

    It's now officially up on YouTube (I'm guessing it won't last long)

    I think by default, this is better than the original. It just simply did a lot that it proved its worth. Characterization and voice action are pretty damn solid all across the board and given the ending, there's a good set up for a long running mystery involved what with
    the mother of Huey, Dewey and Louie.

    Thanks for posting it. Unfortunately for me, it's region-locked. The entire Disney XD account is, apparently. Guess I'll wait until the suits decide it's ok for international audiences to watch... or not.

    Incidentally, I wish the complete old show was available for physical purchase on a region-free format.

    It's going to be interesting to see where they are going to take that story-arc.

    Don Rosa said in a interview that he always wanted to do a comic book story where the triplest meet their parents, but Disney didn't allow it, because said story would have to explain why they were abandoned to Donald's care for all these years. I guess Disney has different standards between cartoons and comics, but let me remind you that Don Rosa was allowed to tackle the deaths of Scrooge's parents (even outright showing the death of his father).

    Y'know, it's more than possible to praise how good the pilot is without throwing the old show under the bus.

    I would also chime in and say yes this so far is better then the original series, for as much as I love the original ducktales cartoon as an adult I see it has some flaws to it in terms of characters and presentation

    Disagree. Milo Murphy's Law's first two episodes still sits on the channel with over a million views, and that's like 10 months now

    I don't know, complaining about characterization in the original Ducktales is a bit like complaining about it in the original Carl Barks comics--it's not so much that it's "poor" as much as it is "entirely nonexistent because that's just not where the story's attention is". The new series is obviously going to be more character-driven because that's just how you do children's animation nowadays. That doesn't make it necessarily better or worse, just a different style of storytelling.

    IMO, the series so far complement each other fairly well that we don't need to immediately put them at each other's neck in terms of comparison.
