First Look at the DuckTales Reboot (x)

“The image marks our first official look at the return of the beloved billed crew. It comes almost a full year because the new series is set to debut in 2017.

After the show was announced back in February 2015 to much excitement from fans, it’s been widely quiet on the DuckTales front.

This photo’s release comes as Disney prepares to present its brands — Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD — at the annual Upfronts.”

the absolute highlight of my week was when I found out that Donald Trump made an appearance in Uncle Scrooge comic as a villain. 

Look at this! It’s amazing! This is Ronald Plump, the sleazy business man who tries to cheat Scrooge on a deal, but ends up running his own business into a bankruptcy. I wonder why this particular comic has never been translated into English. ;) 

 I am so happy to be able, with my own two eyes, to see Scrooge McDuck give a verbal smackdown to this orange walking toupee.

Here in Duckburg...

So I can finally announce that I’ve been working on Disney XD’s brand new DUCKTALES series, coming in 2017!  It’s been an absolute dream come true working on this amazing show with a crew that LOVES (and in some ways, have been defined by) the original series and comics.  And that passion is shining through on every episode.

“But, Frank,” you cry to the heavens, “who the heck do you think you are to be writing DuckTales?!”  Some of my credentials:

- DuckTales Theme lyrics were included in my wedding vows.

- My eldest daughter’s first words were “Woo-oo!”

- My first apartment was nicknamed Duckburg.

- Had the “Moon Theme” as my ringtone for five years.

- An almost unreasonable love for all things Barks, Rosa, EU comics, Original Series, and Video Games, as well as the entirety of the Disney Afternoon.

- This photo of me at age 10:

For the record, I wore that on several non-Halloween occasions.

So hang on tight, everybody.  Racecars. Lasers. Aeroplanes. It’s gonna be a Duck Blur.

I love overly meticulous fan wikis.

wow cool facts about anime

have you ever wondered why anime people have such big eyes like this:

that’s because of scrooge mcduck

Osamu Tekuza. creator of Astro Boy and often called “The Godfather of Anime,” was a big fan of the Scrooge McDuck comics from back in the fifties and when he created Astro Boy, he based his art style on the Scrooge McDuck comics

so basically this character

who serves as the visual basis for the modern-day anime art style was inspired by this

which means that every time you get horny for this

or for these guys

you’re actually getting your jollies from the great grandkids of this motherfucker
