Critic Reviews for DuckTales Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Yes, DuckTales is seriously funny ... mostly because of its irreverent and somewhat self-aware tone.

With all these homages, odes, and new character development, DuckTales doesn't slack odd in the comedy. Fam, the show is hilarious and full of one-liners from everyone.

Even if today's young generations somehow go their whole lives without ever checking out the original series, no regrets should be had, so long as they watch this one

Aug 15, 2017 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

The new DuckTales is confident in its own story and barrels ahead without looking back.

Aug 10, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

What remains most significant throughout, though, is the emphasis on love as a self-sacrificial quality that demands hazard.

Aug 25, 2017 | Full Review…

The mix of adventure and humor should appeal to fans young and old, and maybe even have a few of them saying "woo-oo!"

Aug 18, 2017 | Full Review…

Woo-oo! Adventure, fun, and laughs abound in Disney reboot.

Aug 16, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

So, some news: The new DuckTales is better than the original show. Funnier, more ambitious.

Oct 16, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

The animation and character designs are truly gorgeous, combining the old comic book sensibility with modern, simplistic cartoon styles in a fun way.

Aug 15, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The animation is rudimentary, but there's a lot of nostalgia packed in its return.

    Very fun show reboot in a time where animated reboots stink. The stories are funny and exciting, and the characters are all interestingly distinct and unique. Good Job Disney XD!

    The last episode is much more interesting, thanks to the plot, the character and the ACTUAL adventure. The rest of the series feel boring. I don't care about the lazy things the three nephiews do all the day long. I want to see much more treasure hunting, much more Scrooge & Donald, and for goddess sake.. The comics were much more mature. Why brings Scrooge's parents alive? Why Goldie is still young? Why Della was so important, but not their father? Why Webby? I like some humor, but the rest of the show is just heartless..

    I was skeptical at first that they could actually pull off rebooting one of my favourite childhood shows but they managed to do an amazing job. Once I got used to the updated animation (which didn't take long) and settled into the great new stories, I'm so excited to see this show every week. They do a great job of incorporating things from the original series and it's a real treat to see Easter eggs from other retro Disney shows (Darkwing Duck, Talespin, Gummi Bears). The voices were cast perfectly. The only character that I have an issue with is Launchpad. They've made him completely brain dead unlike in the original series he was not that far out to lunch. But there seems to be quite the mystery surrounding him that maybe we'll eventually dig deeper into in the future or something will eventually explain why he is the way he is at this point.
