Disney kills *SPOILER ALERT*!!!
« on: May 26, 2018, 05:06:13 PM »
Along with the current threads about rebooting our childhood cartoons currently going on, many of you may know they've rebooted Ducktales.  I'm trying to like it, but some of the changes are hard to take.  Also, since it began, I've been missing one of my favorite characters, Duckworth the butler.

Well, today they reveal that Duckworth is dead... and he's a ghost living in the mansion.

Well, I guess I should be glad he isn't gone completely.

He's better off dead. I mean... why was a dog named Duckworth. What's the story here. Did the ducks colonize the dogs' land and forced them to take their names? Did his mother marry into duck family and she had to give up their doggish family name?
No longer having to serve these privileged 1% ducks is a great reason to kick the bucket :lol:

Btw, I like the Ducktales reboot. Webby 2017 >>> Webby 1987.

Aw, wittle Webby was one of my favorites.  Miss her sweet little "Un-ca Scrooge" voice.  But like I said, I'm trying to like it.

I haven't seen that episode yet, but I'm loving the reboot.  I've always wondered about Duckworth's name too. So weird.....

OMG is it really 30 years old?!  :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:

I remember watching the original after school (and am humming the theme tune, "Duck Tales - woo hoo!")

However, I am in no mad rush to watch the reboot.  :cool:

There was a time in my life that I loved Disney. Now I kind of loathe them (especially after what they did to SW).

I like it better than I thought I did but the original is definitely much easier on the eyes. Sad to hear they killed off Duckworth though >> I hadn't thought about it but everyone here is right that was a weird name for a dog person.

The new Ducktales is great everyone should give it a chance and this is coming from someone who is sick and weary of reboots...

I tried to like the reboot.  But...I just can’t.  I loathe the new Webby.  I don’t like the voices for Huey. Dewey, and Louie.  The animation looks way too simple.  The character designs are ugly and hard to look at.  Oh, and the new Mrs Beakly scares the bejeebers out of me.  It’s just a big, fat fail.

I haven't checked out the German dub but they better keep the old names! "Johann" is much better than "Duckworth" and "Nicky" is better than "Webby". I always liked how they used normal names for them instead of duck puns (woohoo).
