Phil Anselmo is knocking it out of the park as Donald. Turns out he does have a varied emotional range besides "smug satisfaction" and "anger".

I want Scrooge to tell the story about how he met Teddy Roosevelt and at the end you see Webby calculating how old that would make Scrooge.

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)

Scrooge being against laying employees off is a good characterization choice.

It's super unlikely given the modern setting, but I would like to see Teddy Roosevelt from the Rosa comics since he's one of the few people Scrooge likes and might call his friend.

Scrooge tells the family about his youth in the old west and that time he got into a fight with Teddy Roosevelt in a flashback episode.

Cut back to the modern day at the end and you see Webby desperately trying to do the math on Scrooge's age.

At least a couple comics acknowledged Donald's service in WW2, including the fact that he has at least some form of PTSD from it

I mean yeah working in a Nazi munitions factory would screw anybody up.

I like new Glomgold but I feel like how people feel about new Gyro: It doesn't feel like the same character at all.

Glomgold was a nasty bastard, I guess it's hard to keep the series upbeat and fun with a character like that.

I mean he did leave his employees, four children, and a senior citizen to drown in the first episode, that's pretty loving metal.

Think of how many potential adventures in exotic locales one can have when your pilot has a "successful flight" rating of .244. Oh no, Launchpad crashed the plane on the moon, whatever shall we do.

Worked for it like Scrooge, but Glomgold is much more liable to make dirty deals and engage in some criminal enterprise.

There's always the classic "we couldn't get this actor with the deep distinctive voice" move of just having Corey Burton be Shere Khan.

And David Werner! Dude was busy during Kingdom Hearts II so Burton subbed in for Sark using his Shockwave voice, which was based off Werner to begin with.

The funny part about that is that apparently Warner was totally up for playing Sark and the MCP again, they just didn't bother asking him.

Yeah in the 3DS game. He also did the voice of Ansem the Wise in the games they couldn't get Christopher Lee for. Dude's got a pretty impressive range I'll give him that.

Burton played Count Dooku in the Clone Wars cartoon; they brought in Christopher Lee to play Dooku in the Clone Wars pilot movie. Lee heard Burton do some lines in his Dooku voice and turned around to ask the directors why they paid out the nose for him when Burton does a pitch-perfect impression of his voice.

There's at least one story that goes with the idea that Scrooge is so kickass that the dime has developed magical properties because of it.
