Watch Real Animals Perform the DuckTales Theme Song
If you don't crack just a tiny smile watching Insane Cherry's new Animal Cover video, you might truly be dead inside. This week, the popular Youtube channel tackles the iconic DuckTales theme song. And of course, they nailed it! We bet you can't get this song out of your head for the rest of the day. Heck, we dare you to stop watching this video on repeat. Warning: That's exactly what will happen if you hit the play button below.
In this absolutely adorable video, Insane Cherry has amassed every form of barnyard and house bound animal they could, including ducks, foxes, cats, and dogs, and then mixed their individual squawks, barks and meows into an irresistible cover of, perhaps, the most catchy kids' show theme song every record.
This cover of the DuckTales theme song couldn't come at a better time. As the extremely popular afternoon animated adventure is getting a proper reboot this summer, though Disney XD has not yet announced a proper release date. They did, however, announced that a second season has already been ordered, and no one's even seen the first batch of episodes yet.
Disney XD released a new DuckTales trailer on their Youtube Channel a few weeks ago, and right away, fans noticed a completely different style of animation. The humor is aimed at children as well as adults this time around, and even includes jokes about child trafficking and senior moments. This new iteration appears to be quite action packed, and sugar fueled.
DuckTales originally aired on afternoon television, debuting in 1987 and running until 1990. This updated version is sticking pretty close to the main storyline, with Scrooge McDuck reclaiming his title as one of the most adventurous soles to ever walk the planet. One noticeable difference between the old show and new, aside from the slick new animation, is that this version boasts a rebooted voice cast. The nephews no longer sounds like high-pitched bicycle horns.
The cast actually has quite the fine ensemble. Starring are David Tennant (Jessica Jones) as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi (Community), Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) and Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) as Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively; Beck Bennett (SNL) as Launchpad McQuack; Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as Mrs. Beakley; and Kate Micucci (The Big Bang Theory) as Webby Vanderquack. Disney had this to say in a recent press release.
"A first look at the all-new family comedy-adventure seriesDuckTales premiering this summer on Disney XD. The series stars David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively; Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley, and will follow the epic family of ducks on their high-flying adventures around the world."
If you can't quite contain your excitement for new DuckTales episodes after nearly 2 decades, this Animal Cover of the theme song is only going to get you even more jazzed. We've included it here with the reboot trailer in case you missed that when it made the rounds the first time. And just to warn you before you dive in, if you don't want this song stuck in your head all day, do not hit that play button.
