We, in fact, do love Duck Tales.


David and I have been getting a lot of flack recently for our "slight" to the Duck Tales Theme song. In all honesty, we forgot to place it on the original list--the only reason it got added was because I couldn't find an acceptable version of the SNL intro. Glad I got that off my chest. Right now I'm sitting in the Charlotte airport waiting for my 1:40 take off and I'm trying to think of a way to appease the Duck Tales Gods (and Girl Woodie and Tug). All I came up with was sharing the wikipedia synopsis.

From Wikipedia:

The show features the adventures of Scrooge and his nephews. The nephews, who were originally living with their uncle Donald, are left in Scrooge's care when the former joins the Navy.

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, who always tries to devise plans to dethrone Scrooge McDuck from his "Richest duck in the world" title.

What a fascinating show. As my dear friend Rebecca "Soul Glo" Morrell will most likely add, Donald Duck didn't care for pants, which leads me to ponder his decision to go into the Navy. Don't ask don't tell, indeed.
