Disney Bringing Back 1980s Animated Favorite 'DuckTales'

Disney XD has announced that it is bringing back 1980s favorite 'DuckTales'.

"DuckTales has a special place in Disney's TV animation history, it drew its inspiration from Disney Legend Carl Barks' comic books and through its storytelling and artistic showmanship, set an enduring standard for animated entertainment that connects with both kids and adults," Marc Buhaj, senior vice president of programming at Disney XD, says in a statement.

He promises "our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation."

New episodes of the series have been ordered for launch in 2017.

The adventures will once again take viewers along as Scrooge McDuck, his curious and mischief-making grandnephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie and the optimistic-yet-temperamental Donald Duck embark on high-flying adventures worldwide.

Other characters confirmed to return are Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Launchpad McQuack, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell & Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys (Burger Beagle, Bouncer Beagle), Mrs. Beakley, and Webbigail Vanderquack.

A few years ago, Scrooge McDuck topped Forbes' richest fictional characters list.

'DuckTales' ran for 100 episodes from 19871990.
