Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that DuckTales was a huge hit with fans during its four-year run in the '80s and continues to entertain today with quality stories, wild adventures, and classic Disney characters such as Scrooge McDuck and the dynamic trio of Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Because the stories often are set in far-flung places such as Greece, Antarctica, and the Klondike, kids are introduced to basic concepts of geography and diverse world cultures. Other episodes take the ducks back in time to visit events such as the American Civil War, so there's also some exposure to history and mythology. Every story touches in some way on positive social messages about kindness and philanthropy as well. Because of the timeless nature of the characters and stories, this is a fantastic series for the whole family.
Some stories incorporate guns and other weapons, but the instances are brief and never end in injury.
The series features quality storytelling laced with lessons in honesty, kindness, and gratitude, traits that are consistently demonstrated by Scrooge and his family. Scheming antagonists always get their comeuppance for misdeeds, but even their interactions with the good guys are more comical than they are tense.
