A Whole Other Take On Donald's Nephews.
Okay, firstly, I know that most Disney duck fans may consider this show to be their least favorite and the fact that for several reasons it's inferior to Duck Tales and Darkwing Duck. Aside from having Huey, Dewey, and Louie aged into teenagers, there are other things that made the characters' universe go into the left-field. Such as, I agree with the fact that despite the setting still being (or even considered/called) Duckburg, it's mostly populated by humans instead in this. I wonder whose idea it was to keep the name/setting, but change the majority of its inhabitants. If someone was going to feature human characters, have Donald and his nephews move to some other city and change the setting. I wonder, whose idea that was and why the rest of the crew/staff that worked on this show went along with it? That's one beef I, too, have with that. And because of that, that's one of the things that doesn't quite make it feel like a complete continuation of Duck Tales and is too different from the previous Disney show. Not many viewers weren't expecting that. That's one negative thing about it I just mentioned. But as for the positives, I love Daisy's revamped appearance in this. Another bright spot is getting to see Donald's early design again in one episode ("Can't Take A Yolk") and another featuring a rare animated appearance as a baby/toddler. I like that the nephews are given more distinctive personalities as well. Due to some moments that I say still make this worthwhile, despite its flaws, I enjoyed it nonetheless. The two, other, previous Disney duck series may be superior, but I never found this one to be a total loss or wasted opportunity. I took and still can take it for what it is anyway. I still recommend anybody who is interested and curious enough in seeing a different side of the nephews to check it out, as I don't find it to be quite the best nor the worst. Rather an average, but decent show. A mid- point rating is what I give it.
