Disney Television Animation is preparing a DuckTales reboot for our viewing pleasure. The new animated series will debut in the summer of 2017 on Disney X-D. As an early Christmas present, Disney is giving us a sneak peek on Friday, December 9th.
Donald Duck, our favorite irascible web-footed friend, is celebrating his 81st birthday today. He made his debut in Walt Disney’s Silly Symphony short The Wise Little Hen in 1934 and he’s been making us laugh ever since.
Premiered: September 18th, 1987
As though my childhood was not awesome enough thanks to the annual mind-blowing feature-length films Disney released, a little thing called the Disney Afternoon came out in 1990 that seriously rocked my after-school world. Featuring four half-hour blocks of cartoons, the Disney Afternoon ran on network television in select markets across the country for seven years and DuckTales, a ground-breaking series for future Disney spinoffs, starring Scrooge McDuck and Donald Duck’s nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, ran during the first two seasons. The series enjoyed considerable success and continues to be considered a classic cartoon among animation fans.
