DuckTales, the beloved 80s cartoon series following the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his grand-newphews Huey, Dewey and Louie, has been having a good week. It started a few days ago when a video featuring real ducks acting out the theme song sequence went viral, and now today – probably inspired by the very same video – the man behind some of our favorite mash-ups of recent memory has released a DuckTales inspired clip showing some of our favorite movie characters singing the theme song together:
And for comparison, here’s the original theme from the 80s cartoon:
There are a lot of old-school animated series that have been entering the nostalgia stage of their lives recently, but DuckTales is not one we would have expected to make the cut, though we’re happy it did. The entire Disney Duck Universe is primed for a comeback in a major way (especially after people flipped their s**t for Marvel’s Howard The Duck cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy – also, can Howard now be part of the Duck Universe since Disney owns the company?), and if this is how that train starts, that’s totally cool with us.
If there’s one thing we learn time and time again, it’s that fans can do just about anything when they set their collective minds to it. If they want a Duck Universe revival, there will be one if videos like this continue going viral. Make it so, Disney!
What do you think of this DuckTales mash-up? Let us know in the comments below.
