The New DuckTales Cartoon Opening Sequence And Theme Song

June 16, 2017


Did you know there's a new DuckTales cartoon coming out on the Disney XD channel? I did not, so it's news to me. Not particularly life-changing news, but news nonetheless. What I want to hear about is a new Pillsbury Toaster Strudel flavor. AND that the've doubled the size of the icing packets and include a couple extra for those times you don't want a strudel, just icing. Pillsbury -- call me.

"DuckTales" will premiere in a one-hour television movie to be presented for 24 consecutive hours, SATURDAY, AUGUST 12 (beginning at midnight, EDT/PDT) on Disney XD. Then, the series will debut with two new episodes SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 (7:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., 10:30 p.m., EDT/PDT).

Cool, it premieres on my birthday, I wonder if they planned that. "No." But you don't know that for sure. The theme song is the same as the original DuckTales, but performed by different artists. The opening cartoon is different though, and has a comic book motif. I liked it. But will I be watching the new cartoon? Probably not. I doubt the Disney XD channel is included in my cable package. "Which package do you have?" Like, the most basic you can get. "You don't have cable." That is correct.

Keep going fro the video as well as the original for reference.

Thanks to Alan, who wants to get a whole group together to Halloween as the characters from DuckTales. Awesome, I call Launchpad McQuack.

    Heyy MY birthday is September 23rd!! Also, No Sir I Don't Like It!

  • David

    It appears to be more faithful to the comics, which could be great

  • Chaz Gomez

    I could swear I heard David Tenant's voice as Scrooge McDuck...

  • David

    Because it is

  • Chaz Gomez

    Awesome... wait... is this you?

  • The new series looks good and has its own style, but the original looks much better, as there's visually more production value and effort put into it. Still, some beloved modern and 90s cartoons use a similar style, so the animation being simpler isn't a discredit to the overall quality, which is what will be most important.

  • Xockszky

    Ah, it's not nearly as bad as all the comments led me to believe, and I watched the original when I was a kid.
    It's nice that the animation style is more traditional rather than just another CGI thing, but did they need to even re-create it in the first place? Then again, the kids watching that channel might think the original looks old, and won't be interested.

    My birthday is September 23rd as well. What are the chances? I'll tell you the chances. 0.3% chance.

    7 billion people on Earth. That means 2,100,000 people (approx) share our birthday as well. I don't feel very special any more.

    Can I have a vial of your blood?

  • Dao

    Crap, I just re-read it. Turns out your birthday is August 12th. I feel less special now. 99.7% less special.

  • The_Wretched

    The new song sounds fuzzy.

  • TheQiwiMan

    It's a cartoon. There are better things in this world to get upset about.

    Disney HD could have just re-released all the old episodes. It's not like kids who are watching that channel today were alive to see those episodes when they originally aired.

    They'd have saved a shitload of money, and had a much better product to show for it.

  • FearlessFarris

    I hate it. And wtf is up with Mrs. Beakley? Is that supposed to be some new feminist empowerment version of Mrs. Beakley.

    Don't mess with perfection, Disney HD.

  • Bling Nye

    See my reply to Meh.

  • FearlessFarris

    At first I was like "I don't have time to read some comment left for some other person!"

    Then I was like "I don't have time to watch a six minute video!"

    Then I was like "This is really funny! I'm glad Bling Nye pointed this out in a comment to someone else, and then referenced that comment in a comment to me."

    Then I was like "I have a creative idea for a response comment!"

    Then I was like "I'm late for lunch with my wife again. For reasons she probably won't understand. Again."

  • Meh

    What the hell, they don't even look like they used to. God i hate the future.

  • Bling Nye
  • Jenness

    OMG hahhahhhaa

  • Brent Turcotte

    cant say the new song is as clear as the old.

  • FearlessFarris

    The new song sucks. They should have done any of the following:
    (1) Just used the old song (why mess with perfection?)
    (2) Have an entirely new song
    (3) Re-record the old song, but just make it less shitty.
