Did someone grab a picture of gyros Good-Bad list? I'm pretty sure the time tub was on that. (It gained sentience.)

Also it's probably a good thing that Scrooge doesn't fire him. He's like one step away from becoming a manic super villain.

I'm pretty sure he is going full supervillain judging by how he was talking about the Gizmoduck suit.

This I can do, though.




Cogs - Not sure about this one.

Armstrong - "Armstrong is introduced as Gyro's latest invention. He is helpful for a while, until he takes over Launchpad and Duckworth's jobs. Then he turns bad, steals Scrooge's money and holds him and Gyro hostage. He was defeated when water from Launchpad's plane was dumped on him, killing him."




Timetub - Time machine




Robotica - "After Bentina Beakley goes to Scrooge McDuck to complain that she is being overworked, Gyro takes it upon himself to create a robotic maid to assist her. Named Robotica, the maid makes a poor first impression when her callous personality scares the children."




In terms of other Gyro inventions that turned evil in the original show, there was also GICU2, a car/robot that was tried before Gizmoduck and was rejected because it kept everyone out of the Moneybin, including Scrooge.




Gyro... Gyro does not have a good history with AI.

People were stupid, sometimes. They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.


I missed Scrooge for these 2 episodes but it was great to see the kids just being kids Poor Louie, he put all that work in for a fake dime and didn't learn a thing.

Scrooge flat-out told the vultures that was basically the reason he kept Gyro working for him.

I was 100% sure the payoff from that joke was going to be a shot of Goofy walking down the street.
Just rewatched A Goofy Movie recently. I'm now expecting Max to appear at some point as the boyfriend of the Roxanne look-alike. Even if the animation styles of the two shows couldn't be any more different.

He bought the bank that was there. It was his first business, the very start of his empire. Before that, he made money by selling stuff he found/raised by himself.

Surprised that Scrooge specifically called the Number One Dime his 'Lucky Dime'. I suspect Don Rosa might have opinions in that regard.

I wonder if Donald's more laid back attitude to safety (with all those generators for one thing) in Daytrip of Doom is because the triplets aren't around/living in the boat and for the first time in a long time he doesn't have to be worrying about them all of the time?

I was also surprised that they didn't mention the real reason why Scrooge kept the dime-American money was worthless in Scotland, and he kept it out of spite and as a reminder to never get swindled again.

I'm sure not having to worry about the boys was part of it, but I would chalk most of it up to Duck/McDuck temper and pride.

I think the way Donald regularly solves his problems is why he insists his nephews put on heavy safety gear. Both because he tends to think they would solve problems with the same "get angry and make everything worse" approach and because he's aware of how much collateral damage he causes.

I didn't realize he straightened it. I thought he paused mid-tantrum to read it and it just made him even angrier.

I also think the dog lady that keeps showing up is Roxanne's mom since she seems to be an adult, not a teenager. Also, Roxanne was really bubbly and outgoing in the Goofy Movie, not .

I like his explanation for why they changed Burger's design:

quote:

There were a few characters in the original series whose main reason for existing was to be the butt of fat jokes. Either characters were made fun of by other characters for it or their constant eating/food references were made for the audience to laugh at. This was the style of the time; a lot of shows did it. I totally get it and understand why people made those choices.

It’s also mean-spirited bullying that has no place on our version of the show. Not only wouldn’t we do it, but Disney would never allow it these days. Rather than throw the characters out entirely, we wanted to play with them, find new things for them to do. For Burger, we pushed him in the totally opposite direction.

And, as with too many things, I have a backstory reason as to why he’s rail thin and his nickname is Burger and why he doesn’t talk. It’s not a huge mystery but an interesting “Tale of the Beagle Boys” story that I may be able to tell somewhere some day.

I really liked how Scrooge gave the decoy dime to Louie at the end of The Great Dime Chase. It also figures that he wouldn't hold onto it. It reminds me of the time I stood in line at the bank for 30 minutes to try to collect a Kennedy half dollar, put it in the place where I keep the coins I use for bus fare, then accidentally spent it on the way home

Stitched together version of the pan through the Della section of the library from the end

Exploration is ill-advised.

Third episode especially seems to show they're de-emphasising Scrooge's cheapness in favour of his adventurous spirit (Just as well, because stingy rich has become a LOT less sympathetic in the last decade) and using that to set up a lot of adventure hooks. Scrooge seems to hire entertaining, competent lunatics possibly to amuse himself, especially when every drive with Launchpad is an adventure.

I'm thinking they're focusing too much on downtime chaos and mystery building than getting a few more adventures or discoveries in. Show's not terrible for what they've done as its okay to introduce us to sociopath gyro, I just feel like they should have had a few more treks into the unknown or found a few more treasures before they have episodes where the kids just want to chill because they've been world traveling like three weeks straight or something.

And to keep them out of trouble. I like the notion that, after years of fighting off a steady stream of lunatics, crazy cultists, and cunning burglars Scooge decided that it's much easier to find them early and pay them a regular salary while keeping them somewhere contained. Sort of like the Wizards in Discworld.

Got to the episodes, and I loved it!

My favorite bits were Ma Beagle's general air of "I'm too old for this poo poo" and telling her boys that Scrooge isn't the type to pay ransoms, and seeing kid Scrooge in the flashback and being reminded of The Life and Times.

I really love how Donald is animated as a smear in the second gif to show off how fast he's moving. Seeing this really makes me hope they'll have an episode where Donald hangs out with his fellow Caballeros.

If I had to guess when that would be, I'd say it'd probably involve a bit of Donald's backstory. Either before he joined up wit Scrooge or not too long after he split off and before taking care of the boys.

Skippy McPants
Mar 19, 2009



On that note, they did good by having the trigger for Donald's first berserker rage be a bout of paternal instinct. Traditionally his outburst got set off by stuff that's a lot less sympathetic in a modern context, like frustration or jealousy. As with Scrooge being less of a miser, it's a solid character update.

It's of note that the Beagle Boys are now some kind of southern accent when they used to some kind of northeastern accent before. I guess that's part of making them more threatening and less cartoony?

They had sort of a generic wise guy/Joe Pesci-esque accent in the old cartoon and Burger sounded like Curly from the Three Stooges.

They might also be changing the accents to further distance the show from the first one or to play up their homage to outlaw crime families like the Daltons and Ma Barker.
