Episode 46 – DuckTales part 1
Here we are. We’ve finally gotten to it. DuckTales. This is the show that everyone has been requesting. It is so iconic that we’re splitting it up into a two parter. Most people think of this show as a 1990’s staple, but it’s actually from the 1980s. This incredibly popular animated Disney series has a reboot coming out very soon so we thought it was time to give in to our fans of the show. We won’t write a misleading lead-in…this show is good. One of the greats in fact. But does it stand the test of our Nostalgia meter?

From Wikipedia: Though Scrooge is the richest duck in the world, he constantly tries to find ways to increase his wealth. Many episodes involve protecting his wealth from villains who want to rob Scrooge of all his money. The prominent recurring antagonists in the show include the Beagle Boys and Magica De Spell who are always finding ways to rob and swindle Scrooge and his nephews. Scrooge’s nemesis in the show is Flintheart Glomgold, the second-richest duck in the world, who always tries to devise plans to unseat Scrooge McDuck from his “Richest Duck in the World” title. A few of the stories also surround Scrooge’s “Number One Dime“, the first money Scrooge ever earned, which Scrooge considers to be the source of his good luck and wealth. Scrooge keeps the dime in a glass jar in his money vault, and constantly protects it from the villains on the show.
