However, what happens when – fully understanding the meme that this character and the idea of him has become – you bring back, say, Duck Tales?
And how about for good measure, you cast David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck?
The show is just incredibly genre-aware, with jokes playing off of our expectations of the characters – or even entire episodes playing off of them. For instance, the most recent we’ve watched revolved around Donald Duck being the most unlucky person – and his brother being the luckiest. With a luck god.
This show has been a ton of fun so far, and we recommend it. Whether you’re new to the characters or not, this is a good one to watch!
