That includes the original animated series, Duck Tales, in addition to the spin-off series released in 2017. Some shared their excitement for this series on social media.
“Them: You’re too old to be watching a children’s show about cartoon ducks! Me: It’s a deep examination of unchecked capitalism’s destructive impact on family bonds and the importance of reconciling our past, present and future relationships,” said one Twitter user.
“A large part of what makes DuckTales so enjoyable is [Frank Angones’] transparency with the audience and the crew’s dedication to trying to make inclusive media with well-established characters,” wrote another Twitter user.
