The "DuckTales Theme" is the song played during the opening title sequence of the animated series DuckTales. It was written by pop music songwriter Mark Mueller and performed by musical artist Jeff Pescetto.

The song was also performed during the end credits of DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp. Scrooge McDuck is seen humming the tune of the song in the story A Game of One Cupmanship. The song is also performed during the opening sequence of the reboot series, sung by Felicia Barton.

Lyrics

Life is like a hurricane
Here in Duckburg
Race cars, lasers, airplanes
It's a duck-blur!
Might solve a mystery
Or rewrite history!

DuckTales! Woo-hoo!
Every day they're out there making
DuckTales! Woo-hoo!
Tales of derring-do
Bad and good luck tales!

D-d-d-danger! Watch behind you!
There's a stranger out to find you
What to do, just grab on to some...

DuckTales! Woo-hoo!
Every day they're out there makin'
DuckTales! Woo-hoo!
Tales of derring-do
Bad and good luck tales! Woo-hoo!

Not ponytails or cottontails, no
DuckTales! Woo-hoo!

Life is like a hurricane
Here in Duckburg
Race cars, lasers, airplanes
It's a duck-blur!
Might solve a mystery
Or rewrite history!

DuckTales! Woo-hoo!
Tales of derring-do
Bad and good luck tales!

D-d-d-danger! Watch behind you!
There's a stranger out to find you
What to do, just grab on to some...

DuckTales! Woo-hoo!
Tales of derring-do
Bad and good luck tales! Woo-hoo!

Not ponytails or cottontails, no

It's a duck-blur!
Might solve a mystery
Or rewrite history!

DuckTales! Woo-hoo!
Every day they're out there making
DuckTales! Woo-hoo!
Tales of derring-do
Bad and good luck tales! Woo-hoo!

When it seems they're heading for final curtain
Good deduction never fails
That's for certain!
The worst of messes
Become successes!

DuckTales! Woo-hoo!
Every day they're out there making
DuckTales! Woo-hoo!
Tales of derring-do
Bad and good luck tales! Woo-hoo!

D-d-d-danger! Watch behind you!
There's a stranger out to find you
What to do, just grab on to some...
DuckTales!

(Instrumental bridge)

DuckTales! Woo-hoo!

D-d-d-danger! Watch behind you!
There's a stranger out to find you
What to do, just grab on to some...

Here in Duckburg
Snowflakes, presents, Santa's sleigh,
It's a duck-blur!
Might make bells jingle,
Or trap Kris Kringle!

DuckTales!
Christmas Eve we're out there makin'
DuckTales!
Tales of Christmas Past and Yuletide
Luck tales!

Trivia

  • During the opening sequence of the reboot series, three of the scenes are based on three paintings done by Carl Barks.
  • In one of the Disney XD promos for the reboot series, Marco Diaz from Star vs. the Forces of Evil (another Disney XD cartoon in his "live chat" form) covered the theme for the reboot, along with some other characters from the show.
  • The opening sequences for both the original and reboot series feature the characters being chased by a mummy during the verse "There's a stranger out to find you."
  • When the original series aired on the Disney Afternoon, a shorter 45-second version of the opening was produced and some of the scenes were replaced with scenes from Season 2. This includes the addition of Season 2 characters Bubba the Cave Duck, Tootsie the Triceratops, and Fenton Crackshell (with and without the Gizmo suit).
  • In season two of the 2017 series, the opening sequence was slightly modified where the scene of Big Bulb shooting a laser was replaced with Gizmoduck, and the scene showing the villains close-up has one of the Beagle Boys replaced with Magica De Spell.
