Why Ducktales is important

At least…If you like Disney Television Animation.  

Which I do.  Oh so much.  

If you’re a fan of Gravity Falls, or Star vs. The Forces of Evil, or Wander Over Yonder, or Kim Possible, or Gargoyles, or any Disney Television show, then gather ‘round because I’m about to teach you some history.  

“Never forget, that it all started with a Mouse,”~~Walt Disney.

Great things come from humble origins.  Never forget that Disney TV…All started with a Duck.  

It was the 1980s.  Disney Television Animation was a new department at Walt Disney Studios.  And Disney was suffering.  These days it’s easy to think of Disney as a mega-giant, but back then, Disney was suffering.  Movies were being produced on shoestring budgets, and animators (such as Don Bluth) were jumping ship to find work at studios that were paying better and producing better content.  The Little Mermaid hadn’t yet hit theaters, sparking the Disney Renaissance.  The fledgeling animation department had produced two shows prior, “The Wuzzles” and “The Adventures of Gummy Bears”.  

Disney was in dire straights from Walt’s passing in 1966 left the studio suffering up until the 80s, when they started to take a few risks.  Risks that paid off.  The studio gambled on the idea that investing more money into quality animation would pay off in the long run if the show went into syndication.  It was something that worked well with live action, but had yet to be done with animation to that degree.  Cheap animation with tons of shortcuts could be syndicated, but something high-quality had never been done before.  

Ducktales was the first show that attempted this, and it paid off handsomely.  Not only was the show a hit with audiences (and a merchandising cash-cow) but it changed the game.  It set the stage for the Disney Afternoon a few years down the road, and paved the path for every show I mentioned at the beginning.  Without Ducktales, there would be no Gargoyles, no Star vs. The Forces of Evil, no Gravity Falls.  

Heck, I take it even one step beyond that…Without the inspiration of proof-of-concept, I’d wager that even OTHER studios cartoon creations wouldn’t exist.  No Animaniacs, No Adventure Time, no Steven Universe (and don’t think I missed the shout-out to Ducktales in “Onion Trade”) 

Ducktales was important because it raised the craft of animation to another level, combining storytelling with good, non-repetitive animation to produce quality TV.  For a time, Ducktales was Disney’s Flagship TV series, waving the banner and representing the company in the realm of television animation. 

And even today, the classic Ducktales series holds up rather nicely.  Sure, some things are a little dated, but at the end of the day, I enjoy watching Ducktales without reservations.  That’s why I own the DVD sets.  

 And it’s why I’m so happy about this reboot.  

This isn’t just a revamp of an old show.  This is Disney returning to its roots, reclaiming a bit of it’s history and polishing it off for the next generation.  I’m a little misty eyed.  I had some initial misgivings when this was announced, but the cast announcement melted those fears away, and now, seeing the trailer that dropped less than 24 hours ago…I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for a TV series ever.  

Breaking down this trailer, we finally hear David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck.  I’ve actually been aware of Tennant’s presence in the voiceover scene for a few years now (Most notably, he plays bit parts in the How To Train Your Dragon franchise from Dreamworks) But hearing him as Scrooge…I really feel it works.  He’s got a certain quality the echos the late, great Alan Young, and I feel like he couldn’t have been better cast without some of that good old fashioned Disney Necromancy (And as we know, they used up their allotment of Necromancy on Peter Cushing for Rogue One) 

I love that the Nephews are getting unique characterization and personality. I loved Russi Taylor’s performance way back when, but one Nephew was really interchangeable with another.  Dani Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Chris Moynihan really bring an awesome chemistry to their roles, just from the trailer.

And then there’s Webbigail.  Oh my God, I love how they’ve rebooted Webby.  She was always the annoying load back in the classic series.   Making her a Donald Duck fangirl is freaking GENIUS (and Kate Micucci is perfect for this role too) Bonus points given for Webby’s infamous “Quacky-Patch Doll”  being used for dart practice in the background of her room.  Webby has gone from outright “The Load” territory, to one of the most fun-seeming characters present in the reboot.  

And all of this from one minute and a half trailer.  I can’t wait for this series, even though I know I must.  I know it’s gonna be something special, I can feel it.  Maybe even Disney’s Flagship show, once again.  Stay tuned to my Tumblr, for much, much more.

One thing I know for certain that I’m going to do when the pilot for this airs…A side by side comparison of the Classic Pilot and the new one.  

Peace out, 

Disney Wizard

You and Nat were sparring when FRIDAY called you to the conference room for an impromptu meeting.

You furrowed your brow and looked at Nat. “Who would call a meeting on a Saturday morning?”

Nat shrugged her shoulders and tossed you a water bottle. “People who don’t respect the meaning of weekend,” she chuckled as the two of you made your way to the elevator. “FRIDAY, can you give us any details on the meeting?”

“Captain Rogers and Mr. Wilson have returned to the compound. They requested an immediate, full team meeting.”

“Typical,” Nat mumbled.

“(Y/N)!” You heard your name being shouted from down the hall, seeing Tony running towards you. He was in the middle of getting dressed in a suit. His white shirt was only halfway buttoned, and his jacket was lazily thrown on over it. He was also trying to tie his tie as he ran. “I have a job for you!”

“What now?” You tried to keep in your laugh hidden, but Tony still noticed and sent a glare towards you.

“So, I agreed to do a Facebook Live for some website, but I have to go give a speech downtown. I agreed to the speech first, so I have to go there. I’m giving you the responsibility for the Facebook Live, okay? They’ll be here in an hour!” Tony speed talked as he continued to attempt to get dressed.

“W-what am I supposed to do?” You yelled.

“I don’t know! They’ll probably ask you some questions, answer them, and then just do something fun!” He yelled back from down the hallway.

“Like what?”

A/N: I’ve never written anything like this before… it’s kinda mysterious and kinda trippy, plus it’s my first series. I’m really pleased with where it’s going though. As always, feedback is much appreciated! This will eventually be Bucky x reader, but it’s going to be a really slow burn. I’ll try to post a new part every other week (it takes me a while to write things I’m satisfied with it, so I apologise).

November 11, 1995. The day of your birth. The day of your death. Funny how life seemed to always come full circle like that.

You were 6 when you first asked the question. “Where’s mummy and daddy?”

“They had somewhere important to go. I’m sorry sweetie, they can’t be with you anymore.”

“But why didn’t they take me with them? I’m important too.”

“You are important to them. You’re important to us, too.”

“Will they come back for me?”

“No. But you’re here now. We’ll take care of you.”

They didn’t tell you they were dead. They didn’t tell you they killed them. They didn’t tell you that your new caregivers were Hydra. They did tell you the date.

November 11, 1995.

“Don’t worry sweetie, this is a new start to the rest of your life.”

If only you knew what your new life would become.

This Friday: Artists Aram Han Sifuentes and Cauleen Smith host Protest Banner Lending Library, inspired by Smith’s banners on display in the 2017 Whitney Biennial. Visitors are invited to make their own fabric banners in a communal sewing space. The workshop is part of a series of Protest Banner Lending Library workshops that Sifuentes has organized at Jane Addams Hull-House Museum in partnership with Gallery 400, Smart Museum, Comfort Station, Chicago Cultural Center, and School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The workshops have become a place where people come together in solidarity through making. 

Awhile back someone asked for a headcannon under the prompt of “hair” for a meme, but I was overwhelmed with asks at the time. To make up for it, here’s a whole post devoted to the prompt with several headcannons! Enjoy~  🎃


  • Jonathan’s hair color is could be described as a rich blend of red and orange and brown. (Red Copper if you’d like to give it a name) It’s bright intense shade pairs well with his piercing blue eyes.
  • His hair is usually very dry and due to the fact that he doesn’t wash it often enough. (not of the lack of wanting to, but simply because the option to shower is not always available)
  • Jonathan constantly finds straw stuck in his hair, it’s especially noticeable right after he takes his mask off. This was a given and he’s gotten used to the straw by now, just leaving it there for the aesthetic.
  • If you were to associate a scent with his hair, it would probably be the straw that stays stuck within his strands. His hair has a fine musky scent reminiscent of the corn fields of Georgia.
  • While not overly concerned to personal appearance, he does regularly shave what little facial hair grows on his chin. (he couldn’t grow a beard even if he tried)
  • Like the rest of his spindly frame, his hair is rather weak and unhealthy looking in appearance. Despite it’s vibrant color his hairline is slowly receding and should he live to reach old age he will likely lose most of it.
  • All the years of toxin abuse and experiments have caused his hair to become extremely fragile, under stressful situations he’ll pick at it and yank out entire chunks of hair without realizing. He’s not too concerned about his hair loss though, because the majority of his time is spent behind the mask spreading fear.

Dear Diary, 

Saw (Y/N) today, she didn’t seem to be doing too well, but that’s not surprising, the thing I find surprising is that….I’m developing feeling for her, I know that’s not so ridiculous, considering that I am a human being after all, I just didn’t think I’d be feeling this way so…..quickly, I thought it take years for it to develop and blossom, but there it is, I am falling in love with (Y/N), I am falling in love with my best friend. I need to distance myself from them, I’m too dangerous, I could hurt them. This is for their own good, I’m keeping them safe. They’ll understand, God I hope they understand.

Bruce


A/N: This is a series that I will actually update
