Product Description

The world's wealthiest duck brings his high-flying escapades home to DVD with DUCKTALES. Scrooge McDuck has a nose for business that leads him to the far corners of the world, but even this tycoon has his hands full when nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie join the fun. Joined by their loyal pals Launchpad McQuack, Gyro Gearloose, Mrs. Beakley, and Webby Vanderquack, the DUCKTALES gang never fails to deliver a wealth of adventure. Whether searching for the Fountain of Youth, traveling back in time to the days of King Arthur's Round Table, or being accidentally launched into outer space -- you can always bank on Scrooge and the boys to keep the thrills coming. Get ready for a fortune of fun with some of the most memorable DUCKTALES episodes ever on 3 discs. It's a feather-raising quack-up that you and your family will treasure.

Ducktales (1987) marked the Walt Disney Studio's entry into the afternoon syndicated-cartoon market. The series was loosely based on the imaginative adventure stories Carl Barks created for the Disney comic books, featuring Donald Duck, his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and Uncle Scrooge McDuck, a miser who possessed "five cubic acres of money." This three-disc set begins with episode #6, "Send in the Clones." (The series started with "Ducktales: Treasure of the Golden Suns," a two-hour TV movie in which Donald joins the Navy and sends Huey, Dewey, and Louie to live with their great-uncle Scrooge. This adventure was recut into the first five episodes, which are not included in this set.)

Ducktales never matched the panache of Barks's inspired original. The TV series added the whiny Webbigail and her grandmother, Mrs. Beakly, who resembled a feather pillow with a beak. Launchpad McQuack supplied mock-heroic comedy, although his prominent cleft chin made him look like a pelican. When Uncle Scrooge and his relatives scaled the Himalayas in search of the crown of Genghis Kahn in the comic book, Barks ended the story with typical irony: people weren't interested in the gold and jewels Scrooge coveted, they only wanted to hear about Gu, the abominable snowman he encountered. In the animated version, the big joke is an amorous, ugly female snowman chasing Launchpad. But these shortcomings never bothered the Gen-Y viewers who grew up watching Ducktales. (Rated TV-Y, suitable for ages 6 and older: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyday they're out there making Ducktales November 8, 2005
Disney knows that like me you'll rush out and by this 3 DVD set of Ducktales, and so have included a preview for the Disney/ Walden Media movie, The Chronicles of Narnia, opening Dec. 9, 2005. Why would you want to do that? Anyone who remembers the dismal state of weekday TV in 1987, also remembers how Disney saved it with Ducktales, Disney's first entry into afternoon cartoons, soon followed by Talespin and Chip and Dales' Rescue Rangers, each of which (re) introduced well-known Disney characters in new and imaginative roles.

Ducktales raised the bar for weekday animation so high with fluid, full animation, great character design, June Foray and other well-known voice actors, and thoughtful stories that didn't talk down to kids, that it's no overstatement to say they saved daytime cartoons, and set a standard that other studios would later strive to reach. Although Disney had made many great duck cartoons for theatrical release, this was the first series that took full advantage of Carl Barks' cast of characters and story telling prowess. The very first episode introduces Scrooge and his nephews, Webby and Mrs. Beakley, along with villains Magica de Spell and the Beagle Boys in a complex story about cloning and Scrooge's number one dime.

This volume one set includes the first 27 of Ducktales' 65 episode run (nine each on three DVDs). The three specials, "Treasure of the Golden Suns," "DuckTales: Time is Money," and "Super DuckTales" may show up in later sets, along with the feature length film, "DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp." For now, though, here's the 'toon that changed TV, back again for both adults and kids to enjoy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but not Great January 25, 2007
By MoD
I wish I could give them more stars, Love animation like DuckTales and would have given the set three stars strictly for the nostalgia but after having sat down to watch the DVDs I was dissappointed to find that the episodes are out of order and are not the first 27 episodes of the series, although they are all from "season 1" for that they lose a star. The lack of bonus material such as commentaries or interviews even preproduction art they would have lost a second star but a rating of one star would be unfair, It is still an enjoyable set. If you are not a Die Hard who needs to have an entire series in their proper running order or want something family friendly then by all means pick this up but if you are a Die Hard you might want to hold off purchasing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ducktales woo hoo! September 15, 2005
By Raj
"DuckTales" was one of my favorite shows as a child. Being lucky enough to have grown up at an age when Disney released wonderful animated shows like "DuckTales", "Gummi Bears", "TaleSpin", "Chip `n Dale Rescue Rangers" and "The Little Mermaid", it is sad to see that the Disney Channel now airs shows that are hardly worth watching, when compared to the ones mentioned.

First aired on September 18, 1987, the episodes revolves around the adventures of Scrooge McDuck (the wealthy billionaire of Duckburg), his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, their pilot LaunchPad McQuack, the nephews nanny Mrs. Beakley and her daughter Webby. The main reason I loved watching this series was because it contained humor, adventure, good animation, and above all, a moral to each episode, hence making it fun for both kids and adults to enjoy.

I hope this is not true, but I heard that this DVD set will not contain the 5 part pilot episode called "Treasure of the Golden Suns", where we get to see how the nephews come to live with Scrooge, and how Mrs. Beakley and Webby join the family.

However, it would still be great to have this classic show as a part of my DVD Collection. I hope Disney decides to release the rest of their animated shows that aired from the late 80s on DVD Volume sets as well.
