DuckTales Woo-oo

If you grew up in the late '80s, you probably remember watching DuckTales. The cartoon series followed the adventures of Donald Duck's nephew's, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and their great-uncle, Scrooge McDuck.

Disney has created a new series, loosely based on the original, which will feature an amazing cast, including David Tennant as Uncle Scrooge, Danny Pudi as Huey, Ben Schwartz as Dewey, Bobby Moynihan as Louie, Kate Micucci as Webby, Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley, Beck Bennett as Lauchpad McQuack, and Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck.

Here's the official synopsis from Disney:

Featuring a distinct animation style inspired by the classic Carl Barks’ comic designs, DuckTales chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his mischief-making triplet grandnephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie, temperamental nephew Donald Duck and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack; no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley; and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet’s newfound fierce friend.

The story unfolds as Donald Duck reluctantly takes Huey, Dewey and Louie to the home of their reclusive great-uncle Scrooge McDuck. Enthralled by their once-legendary great-uncle and the wonder of McDuck Manor, the triplets and Webby learn of long-kept family secrets and unleash totems from Scrooge’s epic past, sending the family on an adventure of a lifetime to the Lost City of Atlantis.

DuckTales will debut with a 24 hour marathon of the first episode on DisneyXD August 12.
