The song will feel very familiar to fans of the classic show, which ran from 1987 to 1990 as part of a daily syndicated cartoon block from Disney. A total of 100 episodes were produced, in addition to a 1990 theatrical film, titled DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp.

Thank you for being here today and for 15 years, ‘Princess Diaries’
For over six decades, Disney has been igniting in little girls the dream of being a princess. Then, in 2001, with the help of Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, the House of Mouse showed us that wearing the tiara is not all it’s cracked up to be. The Princess Diaries opened in theaters 15 years ago today. Hathaway’s Mia Thermopiles learns just what kind of pressure and responsibility is involved with being princess when she learns she’s the heir to the crown of Genovia. “I don’t want to run my own country. I just want to pass 10th grade,” she moans. It was the film debut of Anne Hathaway, who has since become Hollywood royalty herself, earning an Oscar for Les Misérables and nabbing coveted roles like Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. The Princess Diaries gave us Anne Hathaway, and it also gave us

Alan Young, ‘Mister Ed’ Star, Dies at 96

Alan Young, ‘Mister Ed’ Star, Dies at 96
Alan Young, who gamely played straight man to a talking horse for five years in classic sitcom “Mr. Ed,” died Thursday at the Motion Picture and Television Home in Woodland Hills, Calif. He was 96.

On the series, which ran from 1961-66 on CBS, Young played architect Wilbur Post, who was married to Carol (played by Connie Hines, who died in 2009) and kept a horse, Mr. Ed, in their suburban stable. Mr. Ed, voiced by Allan “Rocky” Lane, would speak only to Wilbur, but given Mr. Ed’s rather outlandish personality and the superbly mild affect of Young’s Wilbur, just who owned whom could occasionally be a matter of debate.

Young also voiced Scrooge McDuck and numerous other animated characters, as well as guesting on dozens of TV shows.

In 2005 “Mr. Ed” won a TV Land Award for most heart-warming pet-owner interaction. Young also directed four episodes of “Mr. Ed.

Disney To Remake DuckTales

As a child of the 90s, there are many shows that I look back on with great fondness. Disney’s DuckTales was certainly one of them, but that does not mean that it needs to be remade for “a new generation.” Unfortunately, Disney does not care what I think, so let’s get on with it: the network plans to make a new version of DuckTales to show on Disney Xd.

Disney announced the planned DuckTales remake today, with assurances that the show will follow pretty much the same lines as the original. It will tell the tales of Scrooge McDuck, along with his nephews Huey, Dewie, and Louie, and the “temperamental” Donald Duck, as they travel the globe in search of adventure. For older fans, there will also be some of the well-known secondary characters on hand, including Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose,Magica DeSpell & Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys (Burger Beagle,
