Saturday Morning Cartoons: Duck Tales! (Woo-oo)
It’s not a surprise that Duck Tales made it onto our list of Saturday Morning Cartoon favorites. This show is in the hearts of every kid from 1990 — Not to mention the theme song that EVERYONE sings upon hearing the words “Duck Tales”. This cartoon was THE favorite of Katie, who is our production assistant and co-hosts the podcast, Warcraft Valley. She has more Scrooge McDuck merchandise than anyone we know!
The show focused on Donald’s three nephews, who he left in the care of their Uncle Scrooge, as Donald left to join the navy. The kids live in their uncles huge mansion and go on crazy treasure hunting adventures with him. Oh, and everyone who watched this show wanted to jump into Scrooge’s money bank full of gold coins and jewels.
This cartoon was so popular that it merited characters appearing in spin-off shows, and had multiple videogames and comic books released while it was in syndication. The show was recently rebooted for 2017, and honestly? That adaption is also wildly fantastic.
