REMINDER: DuckTales was sort of insane.
1. The episode where they parodied Homer’s Odyssey, complete with creepy duck Sirens:
Even if you don’t remember this now, you will DEFINITELY REMEMBER IT upon viewing this scene again.
2. When this dinosaur somehow got an adorable little jail hat:
Scrooge has one too, but that ain’t a surprise, he’s always got the hook up.
3. When Scrooge went to the future, and got to see the adult versions of Huey, Dewey, Louie:
Three piece suits, but still rocking the baseball hats.
4. The episode where Donald gets tricked into giving up military secrets to a foreign spy about a classified Navy submarine.
A sub that was built by Scrooge McDuck’s companies. Yes, really.
5. The episode where Scrooge invests in a convention center, and a bunch of movie monsters show up in a pink car to use it for a meeting.
Yes, that Frankenstein character was called QUACKENSTEIN. QUACKENSTEIN, everyone.
6. The episode where Duckburg suffers from a serious case of inflation due to an influx of fake currency:
You know, just an average day on a kid’s TV show.
7. The episode where Huey, Louie, and Dewey conspire to fix a horse race.
Which is, of course, illegal.
8. When one of the character’s worst fears turned out to be a giant evil banana:
Points for creativity.
9. When the bank-robbing Beagle Boys somehow became the biggest band in Duckburg:
Yes, this episode was called “Beaglemania.”
10. The episode when Scrooge got amnesia, and then led a strike against his own company.
Like A Christmas Carol, but with memory loss.
11. Everything about the wonderful Raiders of the Lost Ark parody episode, “Raiders of the Lost Harp.”
THE HARP WAS ALSO A TALKING DUCK.
12. When Gyro basically turned one of the characters into the duck version of Iron Man:
If Iron Man were riding around on a unicycle.
13. When Scrooge tried to sell his surplus wheat crop, and somehow accidentally ended up shrinking himself and his grand-nephews.
Typical businessman problems.
14. The episode where Scrooge steals all of Atlantis’ gold just so he can win a contest over who is the richest duck in Duckburg.
Scrooge was kind of the meanest protagonist ever, but oh well.
15. When it had a parody character of J. Edgar Hoover named J. Gander Hoover.
Who was obviously the head of the Duckberg Intelligence Agency (DIA).
16. The episode where Scrooge pilots a ship called the Hindentanic, and the great duck actress Gloria Swansong made a cameo:
This show was filled with references that kids were probably not going to get.
17. When Launchpad was weirdly very attractive even though he is a cartoon duck:
Never mind that he is a bird who also FLIES A PLANE.
SORRY NOT SORRY.
