Um... hi! How have you all been? I keep forgetting that I have this journal...

I have been a very happy Commander as of late, and I'm sure you probably know why...

...this is everything I'd hoped it would be you guys, AND MORE.

Ahem. Organized thoughts... oh and SPOILERS!!!

-I'm still a huge fan of this art style and, to be honest, I prefer this style to the style the original show was in. I was a tiiiiiny bit disappointed that the animation itself wasn't as dynamic as it seemed to be in the preview, but that's a tiny quibble, especially considering the style makes up for that.

-Still not really feeling HDL's new voices, to be honest, BUT! I definitely like the new, different personalities they have. They're much more interesting characters now.

-On the other hand, though, Webby's voice has grown on me, and I totally love what they've done with her character this time around. I think it goes without saying that she as well is a much more interesting character. ;)

-As a fan of Donald, I like how fleshed-out he is here, too!

-and Scrooge, unf. SCROOGE IS THE BAMF TO END ALL BAMFS. goddammit Scrooge you magnificent bastard you.

-And hell, Glomgold! MOTHERFUCKIN' GLOMGOLD! I didn't really care for the physical changes they'd made to him and he was always kind of a boring character in the original show to be honest, so I didn't have high hopes for him, but omg, on top of everything else this show has redeemed Glomgold in my eyes too. He is a HOOT! :D

-...can I just say that I love all of the characters and leave it at that? Lanuchpad, Mrs. Beakley, EVERYONE omg. There literally isn't a character here that I don't care about, which is more than can be said for the original DuckTales.

-Of course the thing I'm most excited for is the ending revelation. HOLY FUCKING SHIT THEY'VE ACKNOWLEDGED DELLA. DELLA (or at least her past/disappearance) IS GOING TO BE IN THIS SHOW. To be honest, that almost makes me forget that I'm still upset that we haven't seen anything regarding Magica de Spell yet. I seriously thought Disney considered Della to be dead, never to be mentioned, etc... but out of the blue THERE SHE IS. You should have seen my reaction when I first watched this lol.

So yeah, I think that about sums it up... I think it's okay. ;) lol. All kidding aside, this is AWESOME and all (well most) of my exceedingly high expectations were met. If Magica does show up in a later episode (and I kind of get the feeling they're building up to her (probably surprise) reveal considering she's not in the opening sequence but supposedly there's concept art of her for the show... I mean the opening clearly highlights Scrooge's Number One Dime, MAGICA SIMPLY CAN'T BE TOO FAR BEHIND) I'll be a completely satisfied happy camper.

Lydia likes the show, too! I'm super stoked that there's a new DuckTales show for her to grow up with and something we can watch and enjoy together. She's two, by the way... how the hell has it been two years already?!

Also, and as if I'm not fangasming enough over this new show, the 90's kid in me is also completely freaking out over these two previews... fucking perfect. Both of them. They look like the originals, they sound like the originals, and yet they're continuing/updating them for a new time...

God damn is it a good time to be a 90's kid. XDDDDDD

Picture is huge so I'm being nice and cutting it for you but you should really CLICK THIS ANYWAY )


(yes, I knew they were coming) :)

Can you believe they finally make a Mokey doll? And not only that, but a TRAVELING MATT DOLL?! FRIGGIN' TRAVELING MATT! So I of course had to order them, and a Boober because my Boober was a lot smaller compared to my Gobo, Red, and Wembley... but these dolls are actually slightly bigger than my other three. Which means I may have to buy the Gobo, Red, and Wembley from this set, too. (But hey, these ones are proportionately sized to each other! Mokey's slightly taller than Matt and Boober!)
