Dewey: By grabbing the piece! Its attempts are certainly admirable and there are things about it that I like such as the team continuing to grow closer. Beakley: Mmhmm irony Scrooge: If you canny listen, I can't keep you safe! Years later, after partially mending fences with his family, his great-nephews discover what happened to their mother and turn on him just like their uncle did. Climbing down on our own? Maltese MacGuffin, indeed When Scrooge introduced the latest bit of treasure that the gang would be seeking out, the Maltese MacGuffin, I thought the show would actually play with the MacGuffin trope in a creative way. Louie: over walkie-talkie Literally the worst answer you could have given. Huey: Whoa, so what is it exactly? Despite Donald's disapproval and anger at his sister for prioritizing her passions over her responsibilities as a mother-to-be, Della, either out of impulsivity or a desire to prove her skills as an adventurer weren't changed by her becoming a mother, discovered Scrooge had built the rocket in secret for the purpose of surprising his niece and celebrating the birth of his great-nephews, decided to leave an apology note for Scrooge and take it for a joyride in orbit. Even if gifting an experimental rocket to a mother of three was clearly a terrible idea! We find out what happened to Della. The show also stars Michael McKean, Jack Whitehall, Adria Arjona, Mireille Enos, Nick Offerman and Nina Sosanya.
Only the main cast have any speaking lines. Webby: Take it easy Dewey, he may have a point. Beakley: That is not what I meant and you know it. Shout out to director John Aoshima and the rest of the DuckTales team for their stellar work here, packing so much emotional punch into every moment. With Donald and the boys moving out of McDuck Manor and Beakley, Webby, and Duckworth! More than that for me, is was worth everything before it to get to the payoff.
We're enough, let it go! According to the note we found in Castle McDuck, that date is connected to. While logical, it's an aspect of the Disney Ducks that has not been dealt with much in the comics or animated cartoons, where the ducks are just treated as humans who happen to look like ducks. Throw in a medley of unforgettable characters, some infernal riders, a host of angels, a legion of demons and a gang of unruly kids, and the end of the world will never be funnier! Even so, the triplets and Scrooge don't blame Donald for this, because Donald was actually about space travel being too dangerous. The only one not to show one is Launchpad. Della's solution was to take the next step and go exploring in outer space.
Dewey gasps Scrooge: sighs Please, I. Donald in Barks's stories is depicted as working hard on occasion, but given the choice often proves to be a shirker. Dewey eventually cracks after listening to it so much. Why didn't Scrooge and Donald talk for years? Launchpad: If we crashed, then why are we still in the air? Unbeknownst to everyone else, he did try to use his riches to find Della. Beakley: Of all the irresponsible. Beakley tags along, planning to take a long overdue vacation. As Scrooge is sitting in his chair, everyone leaves the Manor, even Duckworth.
Launchpad tries to give some in-flight entertainment with a nice nod to Darkwing Duck. And, just like the Sunchaser itself, the McDuck family is crashing down to reality. Until that very last bolt. Dewey left step step, Huey right step step. We already got confirmation that when the triplets were posed to her as a reason not to go she didn't see that as a valid enough reason. Donald was worried about the boys, Della was confident nothing bad would happen, and Scrooge seemingly decided that adventure was more important than the safety of a newly enlarged family.
Scrooge: Ah quit your heatherin? All I have to do is climb ou' on the wing to jumpstart the propeller myself. As the predicament they are in is described to Scrooge, Louie suddenly understands the full extent of the situation the whole family is in and he becomes understandably scared for real. I don't think she's not going to be a part of the main cast. Scrooge: Gah, Beakly secure the hatch! Beakley: Are you children alright? Huey was right in that Scrooge should have made Della turn around but didn't even think that he might have and Della was just to stubborn to do it. I would stop here, but this is the kind of ending I need to talk about. Though more in Webby's case she is heartbroken that Scrooge said she's not family. And he doesn't get to tell this to the boys due to his anger.
Webby, Dewey, and Huey groan Launchpad: Here are those dirty laundry bags you wanted, mister McDee. It's actually because he partly blames himself for what happened to her, and it was how he coped with his grief. After she disappeared, Donald took the boys in and there's no mention of their father. Why didn't you send up more ships to look for her? Dewey: We know about the Spear of Selene. I can't keep you save alright? Overall, Scrooge is angry at the fact that everyone is making him the scapegoat for Della's disappearance even though it was mostly her own fault for being so reckless. Beakley: Now boys, you don't know. My own view is that this version of Donald is too poor and busy trying to take care of himself and the boys to go out looking for girlfriends.
It was meant to be a surprise. They manage to piece together almost all of the photograph, except for this one large piece that happens to be right in the middle. While she certainly isn't the thief and bad person that Dewey was fearing, Della was basically a stubborn, brazen adrenaline junkie who didn't bother to think about the possible consequences of her recklessness until it was too late. Did anyone forget about that? Then the mood gets dark again. Well you either go all SeaQuest and explore the ocean which I bet Della did or you go to space. After finding the truth about their mother, the kids accuse Scrooge of doing nothing to save their mother.
Scrooge won't let anything bad happen to us. Then he has that moment where he realizes that he's been freaking out his family by doing the exact same things. Huey, Dewey, and Louie whistle Mrs. And then you remember that is set to make a grand return for the season finale. I get it but you can't give up the rest of us to find the one person we lost! It claimed Barks hinted Della was pretty young when she had her kids. Eventually, Scrooge spots Dewey with the piece of the photograph, and asks what he has. While Scrooge does hold some responsibility to what happened, Della does too, and it's so painful to see the boys unable to grasp that, because they're kids.
