With just two days left until the DuckTales series premiere, following the DuckTales TV movie that debuted last month, DisneyXD has released a new clip from Daytrip of Doom and The Great Dime Chase, which air back-to-back several times throughout the day and evening on Saturday, September 23. This clip offers our first look at Ma Beagle, voiced by three-time Emmy-winning actress Margo Martindale. We also get a glimpse at her sons, the Beagle Boys (all voiced by Eric Bauza), who have come up with a not-so-smart way to earn some money.
Entertainment Weekly debuted this new clip, which shows just how intimidating Ma Beagle can be. The clip starts with Ma Beagle entering Funso's Fun Zone, where she's told by an employee that she can't enter without a kid, which causes her to punch this unsuspecting young man in the gut. We see everyone cower in fear as she walks by, showing that Ma Beagle already has quite the reputation before the series gets under way, before meeting her boys in the back room. She's naturally confused, since she thinks this is a robbery of some kind, when her boys reveal that they have kidnapped those close to Scrooge McDuck, with Huey (Danny Pudi), Dewey (Ben Schwartz), Louie (Bobby Moynihan) and Webby Vanderquack (Kate Micucci) all tied up in another room.
One of the Beagles goes on to explain that they captured them and sent a "ransom note," which was basically a note that said "ransom" tied to a brick, which they threw at Donald Duck (Tony Anselmo). The clip ends with Ma Beagle wondering how someone so brilliant could have raised these "morons." When the series debuts on Saturday, it will coincide with the 30th Anniversary of the original DuckTales debuting. Fans will be able to catch both back-to-back episodes at six different times throughout the day, at 7:00 AM, 10:00 AM, 12:30 PM, 5:00 PM, 8:00 PM and 11:00 PM EDT. Each will also be available on the Disney XD app and Disney XD VOD on these same dates.
Featuring a distinct animation style inspired by the classic Carl Barks' comic designs, DuckTales chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg's most famous trillionaire, Scrooge McDuck; his mischief-making triplet grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie; his temperamental nephew, Donald Duck; and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack (Beck Bennett); no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley (Toks Olagundoye) and Mrs. Beakley's granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet's newfound fierce friend. After a long overdue family reunion reunites Scrooge with his nephew, grandnephews and epic past, the family of ducks dives into a life more exciting than they could have ever imagined.
Recurring guest voices include Lin-Manuel Miranda as Duckburg's favorite hero Gizmoduck (his alias is Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera), Allison Janney as Scrooge's old flame Goldie O'Gilt, Paul F. Tompkins as lucky duck Gladstone Gander, Kimiko Glenn as well-traveled teen Lena, Jim Rash as mad scientist Gyro Gearloose, Josh Brener as tech billionaire Mark Beaks, Keith Ferguson as Scrooge's archenemy Flintheart Glomgold and Corey Burton as scientist Ludwig Von Drake. DuckTales is executive produced by Annie Award-nominee Matt Youngberg, with Francisco Angones serving as co-producer and story editor, and Sean Jimenez as art director.
