Duck Tales Woo-oo! - DVD Cover

DuckTales Woo-Oo! Now On DVD!

Just in time for the Holidays, DuckTales Woo-Oo! hits DVD. This is of course the hit Disney XD show and not the classic 1987 series. I certainly had my doubts about a reboot of DuckTales as I didn’t see any need. But in all honesty the new show is worthy of the name as well as the works of Carl Barks. In fact I think ol’ Scrooge McDuck himself would gladly store DuckTales Woo-Oo! in his fabled money bin.

This first release of the 2017 reboot features the pilot movie. Entitled Woo-Oo! obviously. The story concerns Donald Duck, who finds himself needing to find a place to leave his three nephews, while he goes on a job interview. Huey, Dewey and Louie are indeed good kids…but they are danger to themselves when left alone. To say the very least.

So Donald finds himself having to turn to his alienated Uncle Scrooge McDuck. While the two definitely have some bad blood between them, Family wins out in the end though. Well, more like thanks to Mrs. Beakley in fact.

Of course it’s not long after the boys meet Webby Vanderquack that adventure comes calling. In the form of accidentally releasing ancient spirits from McDuck’s relic room. However this does help the former adventurer feel the need to seek out the Lost Jewel of Atlantis!

On the other hand this causes some Family issues as Scrooge’s old rival, Flintheart Glomgold, has secured himself a new employee. Donald Duck. And of course Flintheart is totally looking for the Lost Jewel of Atlantis as well.

While this new DuckTales has been updated for a new generation. There are MANY nods to the original series. Not to mention that this series has an embarrassingly amount of incredible voice talent. Case in point David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi as Huey, Bobby Moynihan as Louie, and Ben Schwartz as Dewey. Tony Anselmo lends his voice as Donald with Kate Micucci playing Webby!

Furthermore beyond the 44 minute film, the DVD includes six bonus shorts as well. Those six bonus make up Welcome to Duckburg!:

  • Meet Donald
  • Meet Scrooge
  • Meet Huey
  • Meet Webby
  • Meet Launchpad
  • Meet Mrs. Beakley

You can totally pick up DuckTales Woo-Oo! on DVD starting tomorrow! Of course you could hop on over to the official Disney shop and secure your copy today.

Until you get a chance to add DuckTales Woo-Oo! to your home collection. Why not enjoy the updated theme song?

    The animation is HORRIBLE. Far too angular. They all look like those stupid big headed, big eyed POP figures that everyone is obsessed with. Not to mention that you can tell it’s not the original Scrooge voice, with it now being the guy that played Doctor Who. The voice…isn’t even a voice. It’s just the Doctor Who guy’s real voice.

  2. Hey, hey Spotted Feather! Happy Holidays, my friend. Haven’t heard from you in ages. Yeah, these darn reboots sure don’t seem to cater to the whims of us fans and copying everything exactly like the original. On the other hand I suppose it would be a little boring to reuse the late and great Alan Young’s dialogue…maybe not boring but creepy?
