This is such a wonderful set of Duck Tales episodes! Sure, it's not in chronological order. I don't remember that being an issue when I was watching as a kid. They don't need to be seen in order...they are completely 100% stand alone episodes! Not sure why they were released this way, but I have no complaints.
Lately I've been trying to get my kids interested in cartoons that I watched when I was a kid. Duck Tales, Dark Wing Duck, Rescue Rangers, Tail Spin, etc. Youtube is a good introduction, but the ability to buy these on DVD is fantastic. My kids (ages 3 and 5) are entertained even though these are drastically different from cartoons that are made today. They seem to really enjoy Duck Tales, so we bought this DVD for a recent road trip. This bought us several hours of viewing time in the car. The 3 year old is still a little young to pay attention to an entire movie (even an 80 minute Disney movie). He gets bored in the middle. Twenty two minute episodes of these will hold his attention...and they even get some giggles!
As a parent, it's a bonus that I get to rewatch some of the cartoons I grew up with. There are so many jokes that I didn't appreciate as a kid (like the space episode when the actor/astronaut speaks like William Shatner the entire time? Hilarious!)
Also, I've seen that Disney is going to start making and releasing new episodes of Duck Tales in 2017. What better introduction than watching a few of the classics? I these DVDs, they're packed with tons of episodes, and they've been wonderful for road trips. Highly recommend for nostalgic reasons!
My 8 year old daughter saw commercials advertising Ducktales on the disney channel and got excited because it looked like a fun show for her to watch. I couldn't believe my eyes when she showed my the commercial and I saw how much different the characters will look on the new revamped series. I told her that this was a show I watched when I was a "lad" and she asked if she could see the original ones. I searched OnDemand from my Comcast cable provider and found the original Ducktales movie but not the origianl episodes. After watching the movie and seeing how much she liked it (and remembering how much I loved this show when I was her age) I took to Amazon where we found all three complete seasons on DVD. We got this 1st season and are watching ti together when we have time. She is happy and I feel awesome getting to share some of my childhood with her and listen to her talk about how much different cartoons are now a days. Can't wait for her to earn the next ones so we can watch those too!
What can I say? I love Ducktales and all the original Disney Afternoon classic cartoons from the 90s. Although I am very thankful that Disney released these on Amazon, I do realize that if you want to purchase the entire Disney afternoon collection on Amazon, it is very expensive. But I did it anyways because these shows are incredibly difficult to find and I want to show my support for them so that hopefully Disney will release the rest of the missing Disney afternoon shows such as Darkwing Duck, Gummy Bears, Quack Pack, Bonkers, The Mighty Ducks, Alladdin and Marsupilami. Classic Disney cartoon in general are a hugely missed opportunity for Disney. Other 90s toons I would love to see released are Disney's Recess and the Wuzzles, The Little Mermaid, Timón and Pumba, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh etc In addition to all the Walt Disney Treasures films that were sold on DVD inside collector Tins. All of that should be available for streaming but it's so incredibly hard to find still. That's a ton of money that Disney could be making on streaming purchases. But this is at least a start. I really hope the fans speak with their wallets. Money talks! I love streaming Ducktales! So many happy memories of a good show from my childhood. Please bring the other toons back as well!!!
Still one of the greatest children's cartoons of all time! The episodes are very well scripted, the characters are reasonably well fleshed out, (especially Scrooge) and the comedy is spot-on! I'd go so far to say that I think many adults might enjoy some of the antics! It is remembered so well for a good reason.
I think I have reviews on all three volumes of these now. This show is still extremely entertaining to me even though it is an old show. I bought it for my kids to watch but I often times sit down and watch it with them. I always thought I had a good memory, but I honestly don't remember half of the shows. I'm glad I got them on DVD so we can take them with us when we visit family and I can test out my siblings' memory, too!
