    Okay, I admit it. I am hooked on the new DuckTales. I didn't want to like it (because I loved the original series) but I do!

    What's not to like? It's a pretty great show. I just wish they'd show new ones more often.

    Nah. The animation is sub par and cannot compare to the original which had good, classic Disney animation. The voices for the boys are all wrong too. Gonna pass on this one.

    That's what I thought and wouldn't watch it, but it was on and I watched it. It was funny! And Webby is a much more interesting character. I really enjoyed it.

    I like it. Agree with a PP, wish we'd get more episodes. David Tennant is brilliant and worth the whole reboot by himself. I was unsure at first about the new voices for the boys, but I'm fine with them now and I like how they've developed the characters. I like Webby BUT she kind of took over for a few episodes. Launchpad is just a bit TOO dumb, but still fun and I like his new voice. I actually like the design style - kind of comic-booky.

    Okay. Thanks for your input. Maybe I should give it a second chance.

    I love the one where they go to the casino and Launchpad goes off on some crazy adventure that we never see. I think he's really an Indiana Jones type of guy, intrepid but (un)lucky. I kind of want to see an adventure like that where he takes charge.

    Nope. Can't stand the obnoxious animation. I'm too old school I guess.

    I really like it. What I love more is the fact that David Tennant is Scrooge. <3

    I am a huge fan of the old Ducktales and honestly this has to be one of the best remakes I've ever seen, the storyline is capitvating, the animation is crisp and beautiful and the voice acting is amazing. Im a big big fan, i just need them to release the next few episodes now!

    Can I just say, I loved the new episode this week. THAT'S my Launchpad - thought they really nailed him.

    Even as a kid, I was never the biggest fan of the 80's reboot. (Uncle Scrooge forever!)

    With that said, I know that the new series really isn't made for me in mind. It's for the kids of today and there's nothing wrong with that.
    ...Now if they remake Darkwing Duck, I'd be all over it!

    It is rumored that Darkwing will appear in the new Duck Tales series, so you may get your wish!

    EDIT: Well, I caught up on the episodes. I wasn't crazy about how they handled this. Oh well, still a cool episode with Gizmoduck.

    I havent seen the episode with Gizmoduck yet, i will watch it when im home from work, Darkwing Duck is no longer a rumour its confirmed, Jim Cummings is going to be the voice. There is however a rumour that they're going to do a spin-off reboot too!

    Yeah, but, I didn't like how they presented the character
    as an old TV character as opposed to an actual superhero.

    My kids just started watching this last week, I wasn't sure how I'd feel but I really enjoy it. I was worried about the voices because, well, Alan Young, but Tennant does a really good job and I love the nephews, and Launchpad is great. And the theme is still catchy! They hit the mark IMO.

    I was going to skip it but the comments on here are making me change my mind. I'll give it a shot. I loved the original series and I have the DVD collection for DuckTales and DarkWing Duck. I just can't stand the way it's animated.
