The concept was interesting, different in allowing the cute and rascally Heuey, Duey and Louie of the old Disney cartoons and DuckTales to age but one that did have potential to work. Is Quack Pack as good as DuckTales? In terms of consistency, maybe not. Is it worth watching? I absolutely think it is. Quack Pack is fun and very underrated in my opinion. Perfect it isn't, with some of the slapsticky scenes a little overly silly and some instances where something happens and it happens for no reason or doesn't make much sense. But the good far outweigh the bad. The animation is bright and colourful, and is suitably fluid also. The music is very catchy with the instrumental writing really quite electric, the writing manages to be witty and intelligent(and above all very smart) and the story ideas are crisply paced and mostly interesting. The characters have differences to before, mainly that they have aged and Clarence Nash doesn't voice them, but I was surprised at how true generally they were to the original shorts and DuckTales. Even when they're older and with different interests, Huey, Duey and Louie are still cute and rascally, Donald is still the easily frustrated yet loving parent figure and Daisy still has the odd but somewhat endearing quirks. There is also an improvement in regards to the nephews for me, in the original shorts I wasn't so sure as to who was who, as of now because of the different personalities and stuff I do now. The secondary characters aren't as interesting, but still make an impression. The voice acting is great, there are some very talented voice actors here(Tony Anselmo, Kath Soucie, Elizabeth Daily, Corey Burton and Jim Cummings) who really give their all. Overall, underrated and very smart show. Not one of Disney's very finest but one that deserves more attention. 9/10 Bethany Cox
