DuckTales is about two things: going on adventures and aggravating Donald Duck. That’s an oversimplification, but Uncle Scrooge, Huey, Dewey, and Louie seem to always find ways to get under Donald’s feathers–even if they’re in emoji form. The latest episode of Disney’s As Told by Emoji series focuses on the exciting times in Duckburg with an extra adorable emoji take on the DuckTales theme song.
Spoilers: the tune is still an earworm.
In this EmojiTales take, the nephews and Webbigail get out of scrubbing Donald’s boat by pressing play on the infectious opening song and taking off with Scrooge and Launchpad McQuack to rewrite history, solve a mystery, etc. They are temporarily waylaid by Flintheart Glomgold. This means the theme song includes bagpipes, which I am more than okay with.
After Scrooge regains control and runs from the lurking danger, the emoji quest points the ducks towards the DuckTales series premiere date on Disney XD on September 23. The reboot launched with a one-hour special in August ( read our review) and will be swimming to our screens on a regular basis in no time.
Is it just me or is the theme song somehow more catchy with emoji? Maybe it’s the bagpipes. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
