When Disney first teased in 2015 that they were going to remake beloved 1980s animated series Ducktales, fans of the original were cautious, owing to the hit-or-miss nature of reboots in general. They were however mollified with the first previews, and when the one-hour special premiered, they were more receptive.
By the time the first season of the new Ducktales ended this August, a solid majority of the fandom, old and new, were believers. Having a 100% fresh score on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes is a strong argument for the remake’s quality. And as the second season draws near (with a third season green-lighted already) let’s walk down memory lane a bit by listing the episodes of the inaugural season.
