The Town Where Everyone Was Nice

This was a great episode, Donald gets the spotlight and I love it. Nice for once to see the Donald I am used to, irresponsible, scheming stars in the the eyes person. I am glad he is responsible and super dad in the show as we get another side for him, but once in a while to get a little retro is fine to.

So the three of them trying to get each other to think they are successful is a old trope, but I was expecting it.

And we get some of the classic songs, this is a love letter to another part of Donald's life.

And those pig tourist right behind, is one of them Peter Pig?

As for the B plot, I am with Webby, the boys were kind of annoying, as was the whole plot in general.

So this whole town was just a town for a plant eater to trap people. I wonder was this town that was wiped out, if so kind of dark.

And I can understand why Scrooge was so protective in this episode, he just made this bet with Glomgold, this is not the time to waste money.

The fact that Jose and Panchito knew the nephews when they were eggs, must mean they knew Della probably. And we get nothing of that, little disappointed there.

The Donald spotlight tour continues, so Donald been in 3 of the 4 episodes, and he is going to be in the next 2 episodes, the show is on the right track.

Best episode ever! I'm glad my wish came true that they're doing a Three Caballeros episode and I got a chance to watch the original movie of it yesterday just in case. Of course, it does have weird moments, especially that bizarre plant. It's also funny that Donald has to lie to his friend that he's a billionaire. Also, did the donkey just farted on Webby? Bad donkey! LOL! And lastly, I'm glad they sang the theme song of Three Caballeros. Anyway, great episode. This will be my favorite. Good work, writers!

Well, this episode focused more on Donald and his past history rather than on this season's plot line so far. It was okay, and I loved the in jokes involving Webby and their photos, which IMHO opinion was the best part. The second part was Scrooge figuring out how to "milk his old age" act to save money and put the blame on Donald again. The weakest part of the episode was the plant monster, which I wish was built up a little better. As another poster said, it can be a "dark" that a plant monster lures tourists there to devour them.

I did wonder if this episode was going to connect with the "Three Caballeros" series that's showing up elsewhere. I was disappointed that it didn't, but I know you can't have everything.

Two more episodes for the year, and than it's going to be a break for awhile.

I just notice upon re watch they took the burro with them too. I am hoping they get to keep the burro as a pet, and it would be great if it was named Jenny, that would be a great little reference.

DuckTales "The Town Where Everyone Was Nice!"

It is a good thing Donald is usually so low-maintenance around Scrooge's money. As we can see, bad things happen when he isn't.

I love the solution that NONE of the Caballeros were successful after all. What a great, perfect, and logical resolution.

I like that because Dewey was dropped as a egg, he doesn't blink his eyes at the same time. I love Webby noting he should have screamed louder on the first "No!"

Scrooge was pretending to be an infirm old man so well, he accidentally threw out his back. Fun idea.

And the ending proves Dewey's weird fetish about "Pics or it didn't happen." It's not actually true. But you get for the first time why Dewey wishes it was.

I haven't seen either the Caballeros series or movies. Does Donald sing in those? Because it strikes me he shouldn't be a part of a musical group if his voice is that bad. I had assumed that they either did like Boomhauer on King of the Hill or the big kid from Recess and jokingly hired a ringer to sing for him, or he didn't sing at all. It strikes me as very weird to have Donald Duck in a musical group.

And they were a garage band? How did that work? Where was the garage exactly?

Good episode. I love the Caballeros and have every since I read Don Rosa's stories with them. Very colorful and fun. And best of all, they genuinely like Donald. ****.

There were probably people (read: idiots) who thought the scene in the S2 premiere where Scrooge is taking the idol was a reference to Indiana Jones, when actually Indiana Jones was partially inspired by Uncle Scrooge, and the comic the scene is referencing predates Raiders of the Lost Ark by almost 30 years.

There was definitely a nod to Raiders there though. It was both.

Edit:

Also rereading my post, you seem to be taking a direct shot at me for saying that. I am willing to be corrected without being called an idiot.

The Town Where Everyone Was Nice!: It was alright. I'm not a fan of the "lie to impress others" plot as it almost always leads to cringy scenes. When making up a lie, they should've worked it out first before confronting the Caballeros and forcing Donald to come up with one on the spot. A good one would've been that Donald was working under Scrooge for the day he decides to retire. I knew something was gonna be up with that plant. Though I was figuring the plant was controlling the citizens instead of creating fakes to fool it's victims. I think the episode would've been better if it had focused more on the citizens' weird behavior than on the "lie to the Caballeros" plot.

I have heard some rumors about potential future events in "Ducktales". This information can be fake, as far as I see, but I think it's still worthy to mention them.

+ There will be an arc where the McDuck family will rescue Della Duck and bring her home. (Well, I think at least this one is obviously real).
+ Once Della Duck joins the recurrent characters, she will have somekind of "rivalry" with Launchpad as the pilot of McDuck. (I'm pretty sure Della must be better than Launchpad).
+ There will be an official crossover with "Darkwing Duck", where we will see elements taken from the "failed" crossover between Ducktales and Darkwing Duck in the comics.
+ At the end of the crossover, Launchpad will stay with Darkwing Duck as his pilot and sidekick.
+ After this, there will be another official crossover, this one with TaleSpin. It will be a pilot competition where Della, Launchpad and Baloo will participate.
+ We will see the main characters of TaleSpin back, and probably Don Karnage will return too as the main villain.
+ There will be a "cold and intense" confrontation between Scrooge and Shere Khan.

Well, what do you think?

How exactly would
they cross over with Darkwing Duck when that's been established as a fictional show in this new universe?

Well, I don't think that's the whole truth. Based on the images shown from his battle against Megavolt and Liquidator, can you tell how can those be actors? According to Launchpad, the series was from a time way before CGI; so I don't think their powers could be faked.

How about if Darkwing Duck was a real hero, but he had to retire and SHUSH covered his adventures as a fictional tv show? Besides, there's that old episode of Darkwing Duck where Gozalyn, Megavolt and another guy tiem traveled to a future. There's more here than what meets the eye.

I can't speak for the comics, but this may be the best year for the Spider-Man franchise in my lifetime.
This is as weird as the time McDonalds served pizza in the early 1990s .

Dora Dora Dora Dora I love you.
I need my Internet back...the past week has been so boring and holidays break just started for me
At first, I thought Brian Hohlfeld working on many shows Nicole Dubuc worked on was just a coincidence . It turns out they're married. I previously thought the Paul Dini / Misty Lee marriage had the largest age gap (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1976), but this is the one that's larger (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1978, making 21 years). I'm not complaining, but this is surprising.
