I liked that first set of episodes. Dewey's unfounded confidence at laser dancing was great!

But I only understood about half of Donald's words. Which is weird, since everyone else speaks quite clearly and understands him perfectly. I'm probably far from the first to note that though.

I hope he's this guy's grandson and is a villain instead of a one-off visual gag. http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Arpin_Lusene

Also could we maybe add one of the McDuck family trees to the OP?



Molly Mallard looks absolutely miserable and her husband "Dirty" looks like he's to blame. Then again it might just be the terrible life of a Scottish coal mining family.

Also it's kinda funny that "Donald" is pretty much the only name which made it through the German translation and that's probably because he was known under that name longer than that.

In this version the McDucks have also just been called Duck, which makes the tree seem a bit stupid. Maybe Duck is just an incredibly common name like Nguyễn.
Also note that they decided to rename Gladstone to "Gustav Gans" (Gans means goose) and later on there was Gus Goose who they had to rename to Franz because Gus is just short for Gustav. Furthermore, Gladstones father was arbitrarily made a general just for that alliteration.

The longer I look at that the more strange things I notice. Donalds Grandma seems to be the only woman who changed her name to her husband's. And the guy on the upper right chooses to go by his mother's maiden name.

Counterpoint: The nephews address her as Aunt Daisy. Her brother is Della's husband.

I want to say that calling someone an aunt can be just a thing of close affection. But on the other hand, assuming they were married, Della's husband would have to be called Duck too. (Taking the wife's name was rather rare back then.)

That's kind of an open question. Especially since we don't know what you or your sister like and know. Gravity Falls is good, I guess.

Asking why a chicken man has human feet is the kind of question you just have to not ask. Like why only ducks are the only people that consistently walk around pantsless.

The reason is that ducks are kinda gross.

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 was really hoping for a Jackie Chan homage shot, when the truck was driving into that alleyway. But I guess Lena isn't as good at wall running as Webby or him.

I thought the truck getting stuck in the alleyway was a homage to the Simpsons where there did that exact same gag.

I mean, that's just the kinda thing you'd actually expect to happen in that situation. But which version is cooler? Running up a wall to flip over the front of an incoming truck, or that truck just kinda getting wedged between two walls?

Do not question the mind of Disney. He does not question yours, for you are insignificant to him.

That pacing may seem a bit weird, but they usually know what they're doing. As long a they don't do stupid stuff like using a character before the episode they are introduced.

and her niece's motivation being "freedom" creates a situation where she really can't choose between that and her friends. This implies that something creative will have to happen.

Yeah, that seems like kind of lame, actually.
Having her darkest desire be "freedom" just absolves her from everything, because she doesn't actually have a real choice. I would prefer it, if it was actually a selfish wish she had to give up for Webby.
This revelation just robs her of her agenda and makes her a pawn.

Scrooge starts every morning with a cup of nutmeg tea? That explains some things.

Does it? Is there something special about nutmeg? Okay apparently nutmeg is poisonous in really, really high doses. But Scrooge is reusing that teabag. Probably since decades. There's just water in that cup.

By the way, it sounded kinda weird how Webby said her favorite drink is juice. That's so ridiculously unspecific. But I guess, they needed that for the later scene.

Yeah Rockerduck is a rival and competitor with Scrooge, and while they fight and get angry with each other, there is no real hate between the two. As well he does not really go on expeditions to get Treasure and primarily competes with Scrooge on business deals and money making plans. The two frequently wager and make competitions with each other who can make the most money in short periods of time and stuff like that. And then when Rockerduck loses he eats his hat in frustration.

Imagine the following scenario: Scrooge is constructing a huge building and because it would earn him a lot of money, they each want to delay the process. Rockerduck would demand extra thorough building inspection from the city and later on, he'd do some seedier stuff like spying on the process, or trying to poach the workers, that's the extend of it. Gloomgold's first instinct would be to hire the Beagle Boys to throw dynamite around.

Does any character in that universe actually die of old age? So far we have four decks who are effectively immortal. We don't know much about DeSpell yet, so maybe five.
But there were the ghosts of the McDuck ancestors in this episode, so presumably death does exist.

I kinda wonder if they'll also explore what happened to the dad of the triplets. They never even mention him. He might have died at a really early age. Alternatively he's just some deadbeat who buggered of when he realized he'd have to care for three children.
Of course, the show doesn't mention him because the source material doesn't either, but it seems kinda weird that they want to know everything about their mother, but don't show the slightest bit of interest in their dad.
Or maybe it's just such a total nonstory that there's nothing to say and they worked through it already.

Why didn't they bring Donald anyway? What's he up to? That's one of the weirdest changes, since he sort of hangs around, but doesn't really bother to do anything. I loved how he frantically tried to protect the boys in the pilot.
