Quack Pack is an American animated television series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation. It ran from September 3, 1996 to November 28, 1996.
The show centers around Donald and teenage versions of his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Donald works as a cameraman alongside Daisy, who is a reporter. The group travel around the world looking for a big scoop, while coming across big adventures along the way.
Why It Rocks
- While the show tries to appeal to the teenage demographic, it still manages to keep its usual Disney tone of adventure and wacky comedy.
- Great hand drawn animation.
- Like DuckTales, it involves some crazy and entertaining adventures that can be fun to watch. Like the episode where Huey, Dewey, and Louie ended up deserted on a prehistoric island.
- Compared to the original where Donald doesn't appear much, he's made a main character where he interacts more with his nephews.
- While not as great as their personalities in DuckTales 2017, the idea of giving Huey, Dewey, and Louie individual personalities is a great step up of writing for them
- Most of the cast is portrayed very well. Especially Donald and Daisy as Donald's personality from previous cartoons is the same, and Daisy is given a more fleshed out personality compared to being some target love interest for Donald that she usually is.
- Great voice acting. Especially from Tony Anselmo and Kath Soucie as Donald and Daisy respectively. Jeannie Elias, Pamela Adlon, and Elizabeth Daily are also good as Huey, Dewey, and Louie.
- Awesome rocking opening theme sung by the late Eddie Money.
- Its contemporary tone of writing at the time can at times be grating or dated.
- While Huey, Dewey, and Louie have more individual personalities, they can at times be unlikable, and their personalities are pretty generic.
- While the theme song sounds awesome, the lyrics are horrible.
- Quack Pack was not only popular in the United States of America, it was also popular in Asia and in Europe (especially in Italy), too.
