This is an awesome dvd set. My girls have never heard of or seen DuckTales. I grew up with them. They are always asking to watch the series and they are 7 & 10 years old.

Everyday they're out there making Ducktales

"Disney knows that like me you'll rush out and by this 3 DVD set of Ducktales, and so have included a preview for the Disney/ Walden Media movie, The Chronicles of Narnia, opening Dec. 9, 2005. Why would you want to do that? Anyone who remembers the dismal state of weekday TV in 1987, also remembers how Disney saved it with Ducktales, Disney's first entry into afternoon cartoons, soon followed by Talespin and Chip and Dales' Rescue Rangers, each of which (re) introduced well-known Disney characters in new and imaginative roles.
Ducktales raised the bar for weekday animation so high with fluid, full animation, great character design, June Foray and other well-known voice actors, and thoughtful stories that didn't talk down to kids, that it's no overstatement to say they saved daytime cartoons, and set a standard that other studios would later strive to reach. Although Disney had made many great duck cartoons for theatrical release, this was the first series that took full advantage of Carl Barks' cast of characters and story telling prowess. The very first episode introduces Scrooge and his nephews, Webby and Mrs. Beakley, along with villains Magica de Spell and the Beagle Boys in a complex story about cloning and Scrooge's number one dime.
This volume one set includes the first 27 of Ducktales' 65 episode run (nine each on three DVDs). The three specials, "Treasure of the Golden Suns," "DuckTales: Time is Money," and "Super DuckTales" may show up in later sets, along with the feature length film, "DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp." For now, though, here's the 'toon that changed TV, back again for both adults and kids to enjoy. This set includes these episodes:
DVD one: (1) Send in the Clones, (2) Sphinx for the Memories, (3) Where No Duck Has Gone Before, (4) Armstrong, (5) Robot Robbers, (6) Magica's Shadow War, (7) Master of the Djinni, (8) Hotel Strangeduck, (9) The Lost Crown of Ghengis Kahn.
DVD two: (10) Duckman of Aquatraz, (11) The Money Vanishes, (12) Sir Gyro de Gearloose, (13) Dinosaur Ducks, (14) Hero for Hire, (15) Superdoo!, (16) Maid of the Myth, (17) Down and Out in Duckburg, (18) Much Ado About Scrooge.
DVD three: (19) Top Duck, (20) The Pearl of Wisdom, (21) The Curse of Castle McDuck, (22) Launchpad's Civil War, (23) Sweet Duck of Youth, (24) Earthquack, (25) Home Sweet Homer, (26) Bermuda Triangle Tangle, (27) Microducks From Outer Space."
Ducktales woo hoo!

""DuckTales" was one of my favorite shows as a child. Being lucky enough to have grown up at an age when Disney released wonderful animated shows like "DuckTales", "Gummi Bears", "TaleSpin", "Chip `n Dale Rescue Rangers" and "The Little Mermaid", it is sad to see that the Disney Channel now airs shows that are hardly worth watching, when compared to the ones mentioned.
First aired on September 18, 1987, the episodes revolves around the adventures of Scrooge McDuck (the wealthy billionaire of Duckburg), his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, their pilot LaunchPad McQuack, the nephews nanny Mrs. Beakley and her daughter Webby. The main reason I loved watching this series was because it contained humor, adventure, good animation, and above all, a moral to each episode, hence making it fun for both kids and adults to enjoy.
I hope this is not true, but I heard that this DVD set will not contain the 5 part pilot episode called "Treasure of the Golden Suns", where we get to see how the nephews come to live with Scrooge, and how Mrs. Beakley and Webby join the family.
However, it would still be great to have this classic show as a part of my DVD Collection. I hope Disney decides to release the rest of their animated shows that aired from the late 80s on DVD Volume sets as well."
