While I’m not all that crazy for the animation style of this version of DuckTales, I did really enjoy this first episode… and that’s kind of what sucks about this release that it only includes this singular episode rather than the entire season

PLOT SYNOPSIS


Life is like a hurricane when Huey (DANNY PUDI), Dewey (BEN SCHWARTZ) and Louie Duck (BOBBY MOYNIHAN) discover their uncle is none other than trillionaire treasure hunter Scrooge McDuck (DAVID TENNANT)! Unfortunately, Scrooge hasn’t been adventuring in years. It’s up to the nephews and their action-ready friend Webby (KATE MICUCCI) to shake him out of his funk by stirring up some supernatural trouble in his home. They may even convince Scrooge to take them on the most epic family road trip of all time to the underwater city of Atlantis. Together, the team must survive dangerous foes, treacherous temple traps and their overprotective uncle, Donald Duck, to prove that family is the greatest adventure of all.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 1.0/5


The only ‘feature’ included are 6 Bonus Shorts:

  • Meet Donald (1:03)
  • Meet Scrooge (0:33)
  • Meet Huey (0:32)
  • Meet Webby (0:32)
  • Meet Launchpad (0:47)
  • Meet Mrs. Beakley (0:32)

 

VIDEO – 4.0/5, AUDIO – 3.75/5


The episode is shown here in its originally televised 16×9 enhanced 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and even in standard definition colors are bright. The included Dolby Digital 5.1 track isn’t anything special but serviceable enough.

OVERALL – 2.5/5


Overall, while I’m not all that crazy for the animation style of this version of DuckTales, I did really enjoy this first episode… and that’s kind of what sucks about this release that it only includes this singular episode rather than the entire season, but it is par for the course from Disney.
