Premise

After not speaking to one another for ten years, Scrooge McDuck is reunited with Donald Duck after he and his three nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie move into McDuck Manor. The presence of the newcomers rekindles Scrooge's spirit of adventure, leading the group to go on many new treasure-hunting expeditions, while the nephews and their new friend Webby uncover the truth behind what caused their uncles to become estranged and retire from adventuring.

Trivia

  • This is the first time since Quack Pack that Huey, Dewey, and Louie have separate physical appearances, distinct personalities and different voice actors. The only difference is that in the DuckTales reboot, the triplets are voiced by male voice actors, and well-known television actors outside of voice acting.
  • Many of the scenes in the theme song, as well as the portraits in Scrooge's manor, are based on paintings done by Carl Barks.
  • Like Carl Barks' comics and unlike the original television series, Donald assumes a major role rather than making just guest appearances.
  • Huey is the only nephew to sport his traditional color-coded cap.
  • For the first time in an animated production, Donald Duck wears a black sailor suit with no bowtie from in the classic Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge comics by Carl Barks as opposed to his usual blue sailor suit. The blue Sailor suit, along with the red bowtie, appear in the show's first episode before being destroyed, and appear briefly in photographs, before Donald receives his black sailor suit from Glomgold.
  • Tony Anselmo and Corey Burton are the only returning cast members from the original series, reprising their roles of Donald Duck and Ludwig Von Drake, respectively.
  • Co-producer Frank Angones wanted to include Mickey Mouse in the series and proposed stories that would feature and/or mention him. However, the Disney executives forbade the team from using Mickey in the show; thus any ideas involving him were denied.[5]
  • While the television movie premiered in August, the actual series premiered on the same month the original series premiered in 1987.
    • Not counting the day, this also coincides with the 30th anniversary of the original series.
  • The theme song, written by Mark Mueller for the original series, has been updated and is performed by singer Felicia Barton.
  • This series marks the animated debut of the nephews' mother, Della Duck.
  • Early promo art of the series envisioned Dewey and Webby wearing different clothes, with Dewey having a single shirt with two different shades of blue and Webby wearing a pink dress similar to the original series.
  • David Tennant and Catherine Tate, the voices of Scrooge and Magica DeSpell respectively, have previously worked together on Doctor Who as the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble.
