Children of the 80's will no doubt have some fond memories of the Disney animated series 'Ducktales' and its super catchy theme song by Jeff Pescetto (fun fact - he also served as sound designer on 'Tekken 5'), but with 100 episodes in syndication and the feature film 'DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp ' still popular today, Disney have decided to bring the series back for a new generation of kids.
Announced on Disney.com, Dixney XD senior VP Marc Buhaj-Senior promises that the reboot "will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation" and will return all the beloved characters from the original series including Scrooge McDuck, and his great-nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, Launchpad McQuack, Donald Duck, Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell, Poe, Ma Beagle and the evil Beagle Boys.
'Ducktales' won't return to TV screens until 2017, but to whet your appetite here's a little something you'll be humming all day...
