Leave it to Gladstone Gander to help this series feel like DuckTales again! Everything felt and played right about “The House of the Lucky Gander!,” including how the ensemble behaved and interacted. As a fan, this is how I envisioned the series playing out when they first announced it: Scrooge, Donald, the Boys, Webby, and Launchpad as the constants with the other characters making regular appearances.

And Launchpad! Such a change from “Terror of the Terra-firmians!” I prefer this take on Launchpad to the one we’ve seen in previous episodes. He can be goofy and boneheaded, but he’s, above all, a brave adventurer who is the epitome of everything the DuckTales theme song promises.

I also applaud the writers for coming up with a genuinely unique and original Gladstone Gander story. Paul F. Tompkins was a treat as Gladstone. I’ve always enjoyed Rob Paulsen’s take in the two episodes Gladstone appeared in in the original series, and Tompkins was a worthy successor, capturing how Gladstone can be both charming and annoying and a bit of a jerk. That’s not an easy balance to portray. I look forward to seeing more of him!

Going forward, I hope “The House of the Lucky Gander!” represents more of what we’ll see than the episodes after “Woo-oo!” did. While those episodes were enjoyable, they just didn’t feel like DuckTales or the Duck comics. “The House of the Lucky Gander!” felt like both…

Flintheart Glomgold & his characterization in the works of Carl Barks

ankkalinna:

Carl Barks created Flintheart Glomgold, the world’s second richest duck, but only used him in three of his stories.

In Glomgold’s first appearance in the 1956 story The Second-richest Duck he is not a villain. He declares himself the world’s richest duck. Scrooge takes offence to this and travels to South Africa to compare their fortunes to see which one is really the richest.
