DuckTales (1987)

DuckTales (1987)

The series of DuckTales first aired on September 18, 1987. Disney broadcasted 65 episodes over a 13-week period. The first five episodes opened with Donald Duck enlisting in the Navy, leaving his three nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie with his Uncle Scrooge. At first Scrooge wasn't happy with his nephews, until they managed to prove their worth by preventing the Beagle Boys from robbing Scrooge. The series followed the first five episodes with 60 episodes including treasure hunts, thief-foilings, and general humourous adventuring strongly reminiscent of Barks's work. DuckTales was such a hit, that series two, a further 35 new episodes were produced in 1990. DuckTales had reached a 100 episodes, a first for Disney and a feature length film released to the cinemas in 1990 titled, Treasure of the Lost Lamp.

DuckTales was originally planned for a TV Special only, but after the story had been written the producer was so impressed a 65 episode season was commissioned.

This show was so big back in my day! It's still popular with a few people today. The adventures of Scrooge, the nephews, Launchpad and others have them going on treasure hunts, explorations, and many other places. My younger siblings [Eight and five] like this show, and it's a break to finally watch a show that doesn't have poo jokes every 17 seconds. Read more

1x9: Armstrong recap: Scrooge's train is trapped on route backed to Duckburg, so Scrooge radios to Launchpad for help. Whilst flying to Scrooge's aid he inadvertently puts out a forest fire. Gyro turns up with his latest invention, a large robot that is strong enough to move the boulders on the track, which caused the train stop. Gyro has named the robot Armstrong. His robot can do anything asked, even clean Scrooge's mansion and his limo. Scrooge uses his robot for all of Duckworth's day-to-day jobs, causing Duckworth to feel slightly unwanted. Launchpad argues that the robot can't do everything, such as fly a plane. So he challenges Scrooge to a flying contest involving himself and Armstrong. Launchpad crashes and Armstrong successfully passes his obstacles and lands at the finishing line. A disappointed Launchpad returns to McDuck mansion, to apologize for letting Scrooge down, but Scrooge thanks him for helping encourage people to buy robots from Scrooge. But during the next night, Scrooge awakes in the middle of night to find Armstrong is moving Scrooge's money from his money bin. It's not long before Armstrong takes over, and starts to control every mechanical device in Duckburg. So Huey, Dewey and Louie call on Launchpad to help Scrooge and Gyro escape from Armstrong, who is keeping them captive. Launchpad and Scrooge's nephews fly to Gyro's house, where Armstrong chases Launchpad around Gyro's house. Launchpad climbs to his plane, accidentally releasing a tank of water over Armstrong, causing him to self destruct... read more.
