Mercifully, The New DuckTales Theme Song Is Nearly Identical To The Old One

The instant DuckTales premiered in 1987, its theme song lodged itself permanently in the minds of everyone who heard it. So, with a new version of the show premiering this year, the worry was that Disney would mess with perfection. Thankfully, the tune has been left almost entirely intact.

Disney XD not only released the new opening credits, complete with theme song, it also announced when the show would premiere. An hour-long movie will play for 24 consecutive hours on August 18 in the US. That's right, the movie — called, of course, Woo-oo — will play 24 times in a row, which is roughly equivalent to how long it will take you to get the song out of your head. The Australian release date has not yet been confirmed.

The series proper will premiere in the US on September 23, with two new episodes airing back to back. Get ready to return to Duckburg and get your ducking puns ready now.


    I just found this one lacking energy for some reason. It sounds like some generic mid-2000s pop cover by someone they want to get over as the "next teen pop sensation". But that could be my old man ears and my love of the original talking.

      I think it's the 'Woo-ooo' bit. I like the rest of it, but that could do with a little more energy.

      I find that the music too load and drowns out the vocals too.

      Its just very stale - the singer isn't as upbeat and dynamic as what the original singer was. And the music itself is more "simple" which feels like it's cheaper in comparison.

      IMO they should have kept the original song - I just feel like its the one thing they couldn't change, it was just simply too good.

    Like it, but still much prefer the original, it had better horns :-)
