    So has the upcoming new from Matt Groening been mentioned? Not much info about it, not even a trailer I can find but it's apparently going to be a Netflix Original. Frankly, I love the Simpsons and Futurama is probably one of my favorite series of all time, so I'm hopeful this will be good, and I'm always happy to see more animation targeted towards my demographic (not-children)

    Its out next year so any trailers would likely be animatics. Still Im looking forward to it.The Protagonist seems like he'll break away from the Fry/Homer mold which is a plus

    Just finished the current half season of Voltron. I was worried that the last episode wouldn't be as dramatic as we've been accustomed to given it was more or less a history lesson, but it was handled very well and raised a lot of questions while answering others that I had t really thought too much about
    Like why Lotor has always looked like an Altean hybrid


    This has been a very good weekend for me for animation.

    (Seriously, Disney and Disney XD are premium channels around here, and even if I had them, which I do not, I would bet you ten bucks that the episode probably hasn't been dubbed yet and therefore is not showing).

    Some of that's...actually been there since the 80s. It's just that it was only introduced in the crossover movie they did back then.

    Webby being a shut in but her isolation being in a house full of an amazing history is a great idea.
    She can relate to the boys who also have an over protective guardian but unlike them she had nobody else so she fixated on the Mcduck /Duck family legacy. It makes sense she's over excited

    I think she'll calm down a bit as the show progresses but not a lot

    The new Webby is so, so much better than the original whining toddler incarnation. It helps that she seems to be closer in age to the nephews and, as the premiere and various clips show, brings her own set of skills to the group.

    Watched that DuckTales hour premiere, very very good, very impressed, more than I thought I would be as it stood on its own without spraying 'memberberries all up in my face. Solid pacing, good brief jokes, neither Webby or Launchpad turned into Poochies like I feared, and they didn't make Scrooge out to be constantly needing to learn lessons from the brothers and made him a solid protagonist looking to impart his knowledge to others like how they flipped the Dewey story in the second half, it was all very good with Glomgold being the best. Adventure Capitalist is just, that is the best of puns, super classy 100/100.

    The only thing I don't want to see is any real kind of overt political bullshit which might be impossible in today's hollywood, especially when dealing with a duck who swims in money (I honestly thought they were going to make him lose all his money as the major plot of the season) so fingers crossed and toes webbed, m i rite gang?

    My memory of the original is pretty fuzzy, but I seem to recall this happening, often.

    I agree about not wanting any current event overtones. This is my escapism.

    This was only the first episode, but the phrase "adventure capitalist" was mentioned at the end and Scrooge is clearly bored to hell and dissatisfied with the tedious business-like parts of his fortune (we see that right at the beginning with the vultures).

    Seems to me they're pitching him as a kind of ultra-rich Indiana Jones who built his fortune from treasure hunting rather than just having a really big company that he built up over the years.

    And shenanigans with his vault were always an ongoing theme with Scrooge. I got a big kick out of the fact that the very first adventure they have involves somebody going after the vault.

    IIRC the comics about Scrooge McDuck actually did stuff like this, and the cartoon toned it down severely. It's been a long times since I watched the show, I recall episodes having morality tales and Scrooge being pseudo Mr Burns.

    edit: Cartoons are also trending to be (slightly) more politically aware, which isn't necessarily a bad thing as cartoons can impact kids political opinions and behaviors. This is also why you see heavily Christian cartoons, like



    And why Eric was always forced to be wrong in the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon. The 80's cartoons are rife with this sort of thing from censorship.

    No love for John D. Rockerduck? Over here he was always the more recurring antagonist to Scrooge while Glomgold didn't show up as much in the european comics.

    The only voice in Ducktales that really threw me off at all (despite them all being drastically different) was Donald's. I know his schtick is that he's hard to understand, but it literally took me a few scenes with him in it before my ears adjusted to the point where I started understanding him.

    My views on Donald were for ever changed after hearing this:

    Remember, the alteration of Glomgold's nationality was driven by politics in the original series.

    Late, but don't forget they changed him back.

    (According to the creators, he's back from being to South Africa, but he's only pretending to be Scottish in order to out-do Scrooge. Which is wonderful.)

    Watched that DuckTales hour premiere, very very good, very impressed, more than I thought I would be as it stood on its own without spraying 'memberberries all up in my face. Solid pacing, good brief jokes, neither Webby or Launchpad turned into Poochies like I feared, and they didn't make Scrooge out to be constantly needing to learn lessons from the brothers and made him a solid protagonist looking to impart his knowledge to others like how they flipped the Dewey story in the second half, it was all very good with Glomgold being the best. Adventure Capitalist is just, that is the best of puns, super classy 100/100.

    The only thing I don't want to see is any real kind of overt political bullshit which might be impossible in today's hollywood, especially when dealing with a duck who swims in money (I honestly thought they were going to make him lose all his money as the major plot of the season) so fingers crossed and toes webbed, m i rite gang?

    IIRC the comics about Scrooge McDuck actually did stuff like this, and the cartoon toned it down severely. It's been a long times since I watched the show, I recall episodes having morality tales and Scrooge being pseudo Mr Burns.

    edit: Cartoons are also trending to be (slightly) more politically aware, which isn't necessarily a bad thing as cartoons can impact kids political opinions and behaviors. This is also why you see heavily Christian cartoons, like



    And why Eric was always forced to be wrong in the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon. The 80's cartoons are rife with this sort of thing from censorship.

    Hence the whole kilt line in the premiere.

    I saw this last night. It was pretty amazing, actually.

    I wasn't expecting much at all from the trailers, but dang. It exceeded all my expectations.

    I loved everything about it. Just everything.
