So apparently Ducktales is being rebooted to Disney XD in 2017.

This will be the first big show that Disney has after they have stopped Phineas and Ferb, their last big hit animated show.

Wow!  This is new news to me.  That's interesting.  Based on this, the art style isn't as jarringly different as Warner Brothers did with Wabbit and the Looney Tunes Show.  But this style will take getting used too.  Donald wears black now?  Interesting.

Really? A remake?  I hope that it will be good!

I used to love Phineas and Ferb.  I found the writing very clever, but I understand why it ended.  It couldn't keep going the way it was, and they ended it on a high note. :)

Aww yes, the network I never watch.  They also have that new show that I don't know the name of... it's like Starlight defender of the universe or something?  I want to give it a chance, but never watch that channel so I never know when it is on. 

Phineas and Ferb was a good show.   Gravity Falls was another.

It was also the show that launched the Disney Afternoon over twenty years ago, before most of these new millennial brats were even born.

Donald wears black now?  Interesting.
Hey, it worked for Popeye.


So is Launchpad McQuack still sidekicking for Darkwing Duck, or will he join Scrooge and the kids when they need a pilot on their adventures? Perhaps a crossover/backdoor pilot for a DW reboot (which was done in the comics) is in the works?

Just announced... Milo Murphy's Law.


Watching the intro, it won't take you more then a second to tell this was done by the same crew and Phineas and Ferb.  Same art style, same kind of humor (probably).  Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh were given full reigns for this new show, as they were with Phineas and Ferb in the later seasons.

You will also quickly recognize that song being sung by Weird Al, who also voices the main star Milo. 

From the creators of the beloved Emmy award-winning show Phineas and Ferb comes Milo Murphy’s Law. The show stars “Weird Al” Yankovic as Milo Murphy, the fictional great-great-great-great grandson of Murphy’s law namesake (Murphy’s law is the old saying that states “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong). Starring alongside Weird Al are Sabrina Carpenter and MeKai Curtis as Milo’s best friends Melissa Chase and Zack Underwood.

Milo Murphy’s Law is expected to have songs written and performed by Phineas and Ferb co-creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh. Yankovic performs the theme song, and the show is set to feature more of his quirky songs as well. Povenmire and Marsh will also voice two characters in the show.

For generations, the men in the Murphy family have been affected with a rare trait known as Extreme Hereditary Murphy’s Law condition (EHML). Sadly, Milo Murphy is yet another in the long line of ancestors to be afflicted with it. As a result, Milo is always expecting the unexpected. Whatever goes wrong – and something always does – Milo is prepared for every possibility. Armed with knowledge, a backpack of supplies, and endless optimism and enthusiasm, he can turn whatever catastrophe the world throws at him into a fun adventure. In each episode comprising of two 11-minute stories, Milo, and his best friends Zack and Melissa, find ways to get creative as life hurls many obstacles in his way.

It will premier on Disney XD, October 3, 2016.

This sounds like an awesome freaking show. It sounds cute, it's an interesting premise and the art style is nice. Also, Weird Al. Can't go wrong with that guy XD. Sort of reminds me of the family from Holes. Where they're just constantly plagued with bad luck. I'd actually watch this show :)

Post by: NostradamusTheSeer on 2016-08-27 07:37:22
The girl's a cutie.   I'm already sensing 'shippers on deck. 

So essentially Milo is a Wierdness Magnet with a hairstyle evocative of Jimmy Neutron. 

A Popeye movie, eh? I wonder if Billy West will voice the spinach-eating sailor again.

Disney Channel and Disney XD have a few new cartoons coming for 2017/2018.  It would seem the Disney Channel will only have one new cartoon and the rest all go to Disney XD.  Disney Channel is pretty much just a live action station now.

LEGO Frozen Northern Lights for December 2016.  This will just be a few shorts.  I don't think anyone even watches LEGO cartoons anyways... they are so poorly done.

Tangled: Before Ever After will be traditionally animated, and is a tv series coming in 2017.  Here is a teaser, and you will either like the animation or not.  It is certainly unique, but still has that lame FLASH look.  Clip (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fuu_QqCOq6o)  This is expected to be a Disney Channel show.

DuckTales will premier sometime in 2017 on Disney XD.

Kim Possible creators Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, are working on a traditionally animated cartoon series for, "Big Hero 6."  It will premier on Disney XD in 2017.  It seems it will follow much of the same format as Kim Possible did with kids fighting bad guys all the time.

"Billy Dilley's Super-Duper Subterranean Summer," is a new series for Disney XD and should premier in 2017.  The show follows the adventures of Billy Dilley (Jessica McKenna), a 7th grader who loves science, and his lab partners, Zeke (Tom Kenny) and Marsha, who on summer vacation find themselves trapped in a strange world located in the Earth's core.  Doesn't seem earth shatteringly exciting.  More of the same kind of set up, just a different location, in the earth...

"Country Club" is expected to release on Disney XD in 2018. The series is created by Chris and Shane Houghton, who originally worked on Nickelodeon's, "Harvey Beaks" which is a very different show, but isn't drawing in viewers.  Slower paced, more thoughtful.  This series will focus on Cricket Green, a mischievous and optimistic country boy who moves to the big city with his family. Cricket’s curiosity and enthusiasm leads his wildly out of place family on epic journeys and into the hearts of his new neighbors.  You know how these writers like to right and how they like to use animal characters, so expect that.

You say traditionally animated, but then you mention flash... So which one is it haha.

The Big Hero Six show sounds interesting, but it wasn't really /that/ great a movie. But hopefully it'll be a fun series.

I wonder if that's the project  Christy Romano hints at here (http://www.mtv.com/news/2288986/christy-carlson-romano-even-stevens-questions/)? Could they have gotten her on board to voice a character... maybe a cool mom or big sister-type character to one or more the main cast.  It'd be nice to hear her behind the mike again.

Time for some Disney XD/Disney Channel ratings on animated shows.

DISNEY CHANNEL
Elena of Avalor: 2,385,000 <New show with a Hispanic Princess apparently, and it is doing well.
The Lion Guard: 1,192,000
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: 832,000
Jake and the Never Land Pirates: 954,000

DISNEY XD
Yo-Kai Watch: 150,000
Star Wars Rebels: 412,000
Milo Murphy's Law: 842,000
Avengers: Ultron Revolution: 194,000
Star vs. the Forces of Evil: 528,000
Future-Worm!: 199,000
Drone Racing League: 184,000
The 7D: 202,000


The 7D Has been cancelled by Disney XD.  The channel's best shows in terms of ratings are Star vs. the Forces of Evil and Star Wars Rebels and Milo Murphy.  Their action shows are all very low ratings, which is normal.  Those assets are usually picked up to be filler shows. 

Disney Channel gets far more ratings on everything, but doesn't have really any animated shows anymore except in their Disney Junior section in the morning.

The trailer has been praised so far by critics and fans alike.  I personally wasn't the biggest fan of the voices for the three boys, but I know I would get used to them.  It will take a bit to get used to the darker color palette.  Reminds me of what Warner Brothers tried to do by bringing back their old classics in a more modern way.

Oh wow, I like it.  A nice evolution over the past theme song too, and if they can keep the animation quality high and as versatile as they do in the intro, this could be an awesome new series, and maybe spark an animation revolution at Disney.

It looks promising so far, especially the route they are going with the characters.  They aren't removing or adding characters so far.  Seem to have Donald Duck as the father figure, though in the first cartoon it was Scrooge.  But this series seems to be following the original comic more then what the first series did.  More true to the original comic, which seems like a good thing.  Scrooge seems to be treating them is "work hires" as the ducklings originally were.

Disney is making new streaming service...

"The company will give viewers access to 10,000 live sporting events, 500 films, and over 7,000 television episodes. Traditional pay-TV subscriber numbers are on the decline, and CEO Bob Iger sees this streaming transition as his last major priority before retirement."

Title: Roxanne
Post by: NostradamusTheSeer on 2017-10-07 20:48:31
It seems this Roxanne character shows up a lot, mostly in background shots, in the new Duck Tales series. For example, in ep. 2 she is seen on a bus being annoyed by Webby's inquisitive antics; later she's seen--with a kid in the ball pit (!)-- at Fun Zone.  She also lacks Roxanne's distinctive mole. making her more resemble another Max love interest, Mona (http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Mona). I'm starting to wonder if she's just one character holding many jobs/duties, or there's a whole bunch of them working all over Duckburg, like the Squeaky-Voiced Teen from THE SIMPSONS.

I have not been following it.  There have been eight episodes released, and a lot of positive praise, but not a single episode has premiered with over a million viewers.  That to me seems horrible.  Disney Channel not get many viewers?

I did some research to try and figure out the ratings situation, and yes, it is doing horrible in ratings.  It is only meaning to beat out even worse shows on Disney XD like Pickle and Peanut and Pokemon: Sun and Moon, Beyblade Burst.

It's at least better than the 2017 Wacky Races... Dick Dastardly hardly ever cheats, the racers seem to spend half their time either marooned somewhere or on non-racing side quests, and half the original racers are nowhere to be seen.  Stay with the original '69 series, folks.   I think they should have gone with their original idea for a reboot.   


Yes, that's Tara "Queen of the Bronies" Strong as Penelope Pitstop.

Yes.   It seems Disney has been reinventing Mickey Mouse steadily over the decades, while Warner Bros. had been putting most of its eggs in the Bugs Bunny and Scooby-Doo baskets. Nice of them both to give their classic characters some love, but, really, has either of them had a really new idea in twenty years?  What else does Disney have on the horizon?  A new Muppet Babies cartoon? The Lion Guard?  Maybe they should focus less on the kiddie stuff and try reaching out to some of its older demographic.  Ever wonder what the Recess kids are doing now?

Personally, I think Disney and WB's efforts to give love to the classics have been... not always in their best interest. 

Disney has done a better job at keeping their classics like Mickey relevant.

But WB has struggled with shows like the Looney Tunes Show, Duck Dodgers, and others.  Not to say they were bad, they just... well they didn't draw in the numbers.  Scooby Too has mostly been re-hashed and not even tried on for the movies, but they did actually try in a few series.  Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated comes to mind at them really trying to do something to liven their series.

But overall, WB has struggled with their classic franchises.

In other DISNEY related news since this is the DISNEY topic and not the WB topic... ;)

Star vs. The Forces of Evil (https://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/disney-cartoon-star-vs-forces-evil-debuts-first-boy-princess/) is in hot water for "saying it is okay to have male princesses."

Personally, I find this story being over blown.  Marco never is wanting to be a princess, he is disguising himself to get to the bad guy... and the author of the article admits that too, but it is possibly how they went over that mark that is causing the backlash.

Still, I think it's no big deal.  They weren't promoting men to be princesses.

Is this  going to be like that dumb She-Zow flap a few years back?    :-\

Speaking of superheroes, maybe, since acquiring Marvel's properties, Disney is throwing a few too many of its eggs into the superhero basket of late.  I love tights and flights fantasy as much as the next fanboy, but do we really need another animated Spider-Man reboot?   I saw that "Homecoming" movie over Thanksgiving  break, and all I could think was, dammit, Aunt May is not supposed to be hot.    :-]

Animated action shows like Spiderman have never been successful in the past 20 years in the world of animation.  I never have understood why networks keep making them.  WB does the same thing.  No one is watching your Justice League 12.

I don't know how reputable this is, but rumors are going around that Disney will be making a live-action remake of Kim Possible.  If you don't remember Kim, Ron, and Rufus the naked mole rat, they were the leading trio in a popular animated cartoon on Disney Channel.  The main two villains were Dr. Drakken and Shego.

For real?  Why are they doing live action?  All live action shows based off cartoons usually aren't good. :P

I don't know what I feel about this. Live action?  A remake in general? :-\

I guess, it being Disney, it won't be all dark and broody, like Warner Bros. is doing with the DCAU franchise.  You won't see anybody get killed.  Though Kim and Ron will probably share a kiss, and we won't have to wait four seasons to see it.  Oh, and they might explain just how Dr. Drakken came to get blue skin and that scar under his eye.

I always wondered why Shego was green and Drakken was blue? Did we ever figure that out?  Also in the lesser series of the two, the Proud Family, there were three blue sisters in that series?  Why the blue people?  Is that a 2000s thing?  Blue Men Group?  That song called, "Blue?"  Blue's Clues?!

Shego and her family were exposed to a multicolored space meteor, which gave them each their unique abilities and varied skin tones.  Which means, since Shego's powers were radiation-based, couldn't Kim have simply defeated her by placing her behind some lead plates, a pane of leaded glass, or simply tossing lead powder in her face?

The Gross sisters were blue because their skin was dry and ashy.   What, they never showered, or at least went swimming or something?  Maybe Drakken just needs a good moisturizer.

If you think that's weird, have you ever seen all the green-skinned villains in the 1969 Spider-Man series?

What, was there gamma radiation in NYC's drinking water, or something?

^ Might be a Canadian thing since the old Spiderman's were made in Canada.
