Did You Know?

Flintheart Glomgold is depicted in this movie as a Scot when in the original comic, he was an Afrikaner. This change may have been made because of the rise of international protest against South African apartheid during this time period.See more »

Disney's most popular series, though not quite their best., 15 September 2008
Author: montagrappa from United States

When I was a kid, it didn't get much better than Ducktales. I had every VHS tape & watched it whenever possible. No other Disney series could top it, although several did come close. But now, things have changed. It is now my 3rd favorite Disney show, but is still one of my absolute favorites though. The voice acting is still the best of any Disney show, aside from Gummi Bears. And the animation is still great. And the adventures are still exciting. In fact, everything is still great, just not as great as when I was a kid. But don't let that dismay you. The DVDs are still well worth your dough, though I would recommend buying my 3rd favorite Aladdin (Wait a minute, it's not on DVD yet! Okay, make that watching Aladdin), Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers(my 2nd favorite Disney show), &/or (preferably and) my all-time favorite Disney show Gummi Bears. It's the best of the "great, but not as great as I remember it" genre[ for me, anyway ]. And I dare say a single episode of Huey, Dewey, & Louie helping Uncle Scrooge get back "me number one dime" from Magica DeSpell is better than all the original Disney shorts combined. BOTTOM LINE: 10/10 - 8th best cartoon ever
