| The combination of the contents from DuckTales old show.
One paragraph plot summary : The episode started with Launchpad gets the driver license and he drives around with Dewey. Lanuchpad mailed the driver license to Scrooge McDuck, but McDuck is always ignoring the mails that are sent to him. So, he doesn't know about it and Launchpad is waiting for McDuck to give him surprise. Later the day, at the Gyro's lab, they met an intern guy and then, they find out a guy named Mark Beaks invented a robot named B.U.D.D.Y that can drive the cars safely. Launchpad is so worried that McDuck would replace him with a robot. So, he makes the competition with that robot. Unfortunately, Launchpad lost because he followed the rules and tries to drive it safely. At the end of competition, Gyro finds out the tech that used to create the robot is actually Gyro's and Gyro finds out that intern guy from his lab posted it online. So, he fired him. Then, Scrooge McDuck and Dewey gets into the car which drives by that B.U.D.D.Y robot. B.U.D.D.Y robot gone bad because Mark Beaks talked something wrong. And so, they all face the danger. Launchpad and the intern guy try to save them. The intern guy gets the robot that Gyro is currently working on to save them. They both work together and finally, they saved them successfully. Later at night, Scrooge McDuck congratulates Launchpad for getting the driver license. Launchpad knows that McDuck's not going to fired, he's happy and hugs McDuck. Meanwhile, Mark Beaks tries to find someone called Gizmoduck who saved McDuck, Dewey and him from his own robot.

This episode is really, really fun to watch. It made me fresh and it's so enjoyable. But I found that this episode has some parts from DuckTales 1987's episodes named Armstrong, which is also a robot story which gone bad in the end. I'm not saying that it's bad to have contents from old show, I'm just pointing out that it's really similar. It gives me that feeling of already watched it. Still, it's doing good.

All in all, DuckTales episode are very cool and I really love to watch it. I'm looking forward to see more of the awesome things from DuckTales.
