It's a pleasing, well-rounded series that has a lot to offer kids while doubling as a fun trip down memory lane for parents who may have loved it as kids themselves.

The series has recently been revived for a whole new generation, evidence of its continuing appeal, but the original still feels just as fun, wacky, and well-crafted today.

Think Indiana Jones, with ducks.

I had forgotten how exciting the adventures were, and how much mythology and fantasy and even a bit of sci-fi the show dipped into with each and every episode.

This was Disney's first syndicated animated TV series and it paved the way for other hugely successful shows like TaleSpin and Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

What DuckTales did so well was to tell adventure stories that were "safe" enough for the kiddies, but engrossing enough to engage slightly older kiddies, making for a show that played across several demos.

Feb 14, 2019 | Full Review…

It's still a fondly-remembered show with plenty of plots to delve into, whether the ducks are heading into space, to the bottom of the sea or facing off against some evil rich folks who want Scrooge McDuck's treasure.ck.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite (or because of) its merry capitalism, DuckTales is reasonably imaginative and adventurous, taking the characters from their home base of Duckburg to Egypt, Scotland, the open seas, and elsewhere.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Listen, if you're not interested in seeing the lengths an obscenely rich duck goes to in order to protect his wealth, I don't know what to tell you.

Ducktales... among the best of the '80s thanks to its smart storylines that didn't belittle the viewing audience and some terrific voice work.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

This show had quite the budget for an animated show at the time and that's evident in the animation quality.

Audience Reviews for DuckTales: Season 1

  • Feb 15, 2019
    Simply wonderful, this series is capable of being one of the best series that Disney has ever created. The story is very good, the characters are explored in a very creative and interesting way, the animation is really good, but the best of all is undoubtedly the epic and classic introduction. Highly recommend.
