My opinion of DuckTales re-smelly-boot by GWKTM My opinion of DuckTales re-smelly-boot by GWKTM
Title and image say it all. I'm so sick of that poorly made reboot and the popularity it doesn't deserve due to its faultyness, that I had to express my missadisfaction somehow in hope I'm not the only who feels the same way.

Others don't seem to realize how many things this "re-smelly-boot" has got wrong. Dull visual look, faulty voice cast and misleading redesigns of some of the characters - Duckworth especially. Only pros are David "Wilf" Tennant as Scrooge - cause Alan Young passed away - and Tony Anselmo as Donald.

Also, it's ok if Huey, Dewey and Louie are individual but drawing them badly and giving them deep off-character voices who don't even try to imitate a child, is not a way to go! Quack pack delivered the individuality-idea lot better.

Original DuckTales was lot more colorful and characters had their official widely recognizeable designs. Only cons were music (theme song not counted) and the solid, dusty-looking anime-groove TMS couldn't hide at the time like they did for Warner Bros' shows. Those that Wang Film made looked better though. Wouldn't the reboot work with the old visual look?

Even Capcom did better when remastering DuckTales NES-game. All characters have their original designs and environments were colorful. It could've been even better if the game had auto-lipsync and full language support to multiple languages.

Disney's other dull revivals (besides of live action versions) include The Lion Guard, Where's my Mickey? and Tangled the series - mainly because of quality. And in bad luck, that Big Hero 6 series that I haven't seen yet, might be one of 'em as well.

Mickey and Roadster Racers is a TRUE sign of Disney getting back on track and caring about their characters. It's lot more faithful to source content and it's animation is more exaggerative than in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. That's the kind of shows Disney should make - and should also consider of returning to traditional animation and involving Toon City Animation for their shows again. It would've been a lot better choice for DuckTales reboot as well.

And now when Fox has invovled to Disney, such improvement might possibly happen - at least if they can do it without cancelling The Simpsons or ruining it other way.

That's a bit brutal, but I agree with you. This DorkTales is just stealing the spotlight from the original version.

I'd rather refer it as FuckTales XD

If there just was a way to put the stop to it.

Oh yeah? Are ducklings now speaking with proper voices instead of off-character ones? Is that lousy visual look switched back to traditional colorful one? Is animation technic switched to traditional too?

A user said Ducktales 1987 is a rip off of Scooby Doo.

And it insulting to Walt Disney.

Found his DA, but haven't found his DuckTales review. If you told him it's insulting, then he may have deleted it.

He said that Ducktales is using Hanna Barbera SFX and rip off.

This is a low and insulting to the fan of 87.

On this his deleted review that I remember that he prefer the 2017 than 1987.

Do you think Ducktales 1987 is insulting to Walt Disney and rip off of Scooby Doo?

Why do you think a show targeted at mainly young children is more faithful than a 2017 reboot aimed at older children and an older demographic anyways? I'm not insulting you, but I am questioning.
By the way, what is your opinion on the original 1987 DuckTales series?

Episodes done by Wang Film looked and felt better than those by TMS, which didn't conceal their anime vibe as succesfully at the time as they did later. Treasure of the lost lamp looked even better. Otherwise the show is pretty ok, though I gotta say that Darkwing Duck, Quack Pack and Mickey Mouse Works were better. If reboot was done in style of the latter of those, it would've been perfect.

There were rumours that the re-smelly-boot has some cliffhangerous storyline hidden in episodes, which too worsen the show in my opinion.
But yeah, I agree with the feel capture thing. Didn't they really have anything else in their minds but awful art style, poor animation and those live action sitcoms? Gotta hope those Fox-departments they bought will set things right.

PS. who said Star vs. the Forces of Evil is a Disney show, or was it just an example?

Btw, I messed with Steven Universe.
Also I can't believe Disney produced so many non-Disney-like shows so far. Maybe more than their regular ones. Recess and Honey I shrunk the kids were probably the first ones.
