Coming to Target this summer!
So when do we get new episodes again? I may have my issues with/reservations about the show, but I miss seeing it pop up every Sunday morning on my Amazon Prime account.
I know. I know. First-world problems, but curse me kilts, they’re my first-world problems! 😉
Merry Christmas and a Happy Birthday to me! Love these Funko POP! figures…
Here’s one of Carl Barks’ many hilarious New Year’s resolution-focused stories. Notice how Louie behaves in this yarn a lot like his DuckTales 2017 counterpart!
These scans were taken from the What About Thad blog (link below), and the story is from Walt Disney’s Comics & Stories 173 (February 1955).
Howdy @tinymewling! As you know, I was your Ducktales Secret Santa this year and voila! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas! – CountANDI

This is the longest answer I ever did. Here’s the trash I promised to you last week. As always, I started to hate it in the middle of the making. Forgive my horrible handwriting, my horrible grammar, and the horrible quality. The original was a lot more colorful. Meh. I always think about how Don and the boys feel about Della, but how does Scrooge feel? After all, he’s kinda the one who everyone’s blaming. Guys, this looked so much better in my head and I hate it. I need more practice.
TRIICIAAAA, WHY DID U DO THIS TO MEE AHHHHHH Q^Q
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…
I believe this is every American comic book cover to claim the numerical designation of “DuckTales #1.” I’d love to see any DT #1s from other countries…
Did you pick up your copy of DuckTales #1 yesterday?
Fun Fact: This the fourth (by my count) DuckTales #1 in comic history…
