Ducktalez returns to Newgrounds! Originally debuting on Youtube a few years back, this is first part of the Nephew Trilogy, which puts Louie in the spotlight. I'll be uploading the next two parts in the coming weeks as I wrap up work on the climactic "Ducktalez 7" which will debut on NG and will see the return of the dynamic duo themselves: Scrooge and Vegeta. For now, enjoy a cute short about a little duck and his giant killer robot.
I'M NEW TO THIS. WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST WATCH?
Ducktalez originated as a cartoon created in MS Paint, was later developed in Flash, and is now animated in Maya. It follows the adventures of a different Scrooge from a different Duckburg where everything is flat and creepy and nobody's limbs can bend. Go dig up "Residuck Evil" and "DucktaleZ 3" to get brought up to speed.
WHY DID YOU WAIT EIGHT YEARS BEFORE POSTING A SEQUEL?
The sequels were developed with Maya in 3D, and at the time, NG didn't support video entries. Since then, three new episodes have been made, and 7 will be debuting here soon.
WHY IS THIS 3D INSTEAD OF 2D?
I animate professionally in 3D, so the switch was a convenience on my part. 3D allows me to play with camera angles and integrate fully-rigged CG characters without any hassle. In later episodes, it also allows me to use advanced particle systems and lighting effects. The credits are still done in Flash, though. See? I'm not a total sell-out. Just mostly one.
YOU STILL GOT THE NEPHEWS' NAMES WRONG!
You're thinking of the other Duckburg. This one is in Canada, where the nephews are completely different characters. But yes, I do get Louie's name wrong at the end when they call him Huey. (My bad.)
WHERE IS SCROOGE?! HE'S SUPPOSED TO BE THE STAR!
He's having a totally different adventure off-screen, which will be explored in "Ducktalez 7".
WHEN DID YOU OFFICIALLY CHANGE THIS TO "DUCKTALEZ"?
People kept writing it with a Z and I warmed up to the idea. However, you can still view the original episodes here on NG under "Ducktales" with an S.
SO WHAT HAVE BEEN YOU WORKING ON THIS WHOLE TIME?
Writing and animating. Go google "Ancients' Royale", "Vohaul Strikes Back", "Space Quest Incinerations", and "Slugterra" for more information!
