Best Disney Show EVER!
Without a doubt, this is Disney's best show ever. The characters in it are either very lovable or very despicable. The humor is actually that - humor - without resorting to "potty humor" or the wink-wink jabs that Disney throws in nowadays just to get a PG rating. The plot lines keep you interested, and just when you think "Oh, brother, I know where this is going," something totally unexpected happens.
I mentioned before that the characters were lovable, and while some people are probably going to jump down my throat for this, I can honestly say that some of my favorite characters are the Beagle Boys. While the series introduced seven of them, three of them (big, burly Bankjob, skinny, music-obsessed Bugle, and tiny, propeller-cap-wearing Babyface) only appeared in the first season, save for cameos in SUPER DUCKTALES.
The other four continued to star in the later seasons. Some say they were overused. Maybe they were; I don't know. But I do remember the thrill I always got upon seeing them and wondering what they were up to now. They were hilarious as a group, because they were each great characters in their own way. Bigtime, the leader despite being the smallest of the bunch, could alternately make you think of a '20s gangster or a toddler. Bouncer, the muscle of them, was nowhere near as tough as he looked. And Baggy and Burger - the former a stuttering, droopy-eyed guy in baggy clothes, the latter a goofy, exuberant little butterball - are so clueless and sweet you wonder how they got to be wanted in every state in the first place.
With my ramblings about them out of the way, the rest of the characters are great, too. Scrooge himself is a miser, certainly, but he would always realize by the end of the episode that his family was more important than his fortune. Huey, Dewey, and Louie are adorable, witty little kids who always manage to crack me up. Launchpad and Fenton are perfect as the slow-on-the-uptake, but ever-loyal allies, and the remaining villains - a witch appropriately named Magica DeSpell and Flintheart Glomgold, the world's second richest duck - are sastifingly nasty.
Although the show did change in the later seasons, I can honestly say it didn't become worse - just different. Right now, the only regret I have toward DuckTales is that it is no longer being aired or produced.
