** Perhaps they think the costs of remastering a hundred episodes for widescreen is higher than the expected sales the DVDs would make? Maybe the reboot will be used as a way to gauge potential buyers, old and new? Either way, a lot of people would happily save up to buy the entire series on DVD so it's anybody's guess why it's taking so long when the movie's already been released as a DVD and the NES game's been remastered.

* In the end of the treausre hunt of the first episodes, the ancient city with enormous gold deposits is buried underground, so the heroes just leave. Uhm, why? The insane El Capitan attempting to dig out the gold with his bare hands was played for laughs, but he oly got the tools wrong, not the idea. The modern world offers some much more efficient means to excavate things, and certainly Scroodge can afford them, especially with such a payoff in the prospect. The end of the episode showed he wasn't rid of his avarice, so...?

*** Most ducks in the show are not rich or powerful. Some examples just from the central characters: Mrs. Beakley is "servant class", Donald and his nephews are middle class, and Fenton lives in a trailer with his mother. Glomgold is rich, but he also represents the criminal element - he's just been more successful at it than the Beagle Boys.

* In the episode "Duck to the Future", Scrooge ends up getting sent 40 years into the future by Magica DeSpell. Magica has taken over his company and his No. 1 Dime. He manages to confront Magica and, in a sequence that would make any JerkAssGenie proud, ends up jumping through time with her until they return to the present. The FridgeLogic here, if he came back from the future with Magica and his dime, wouldn't that mean that there are now two No. 1 Dimes and two Magicas (albeit, one 40 years older than the other)?

* Why is Donald the only duck to have a type of speech that makes him TheUnintelligible, yet Scrooge, The Nephews, Professor Ludwig Von Drake, Drake Mallard (despite being in the spin-off) Magica Despell, and Glomgold do not have this problem? What is up with that? Did something happen to Donald's vocal chords that make him sound like this and not like the other ducks?

** If you know your TimeTravel (Film/BackToTheFuture, ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', {{Sliders}} (though that's sideways in time, not forward and backward)), you'd know that that was only one of an infinite number of possible futures. In THAT future, events conspired in such a way that Webby ended up marrying Doofus. Keep in mind that individuals change, sometimes drastically, with age. Possibly, at some point, Doofus changed in a way that Webby became attracted to him. Another point, Webby is a female character and [[SarcasmMode since the number one desire and destiny of all women both real and fictional is to marry someone and start a family]], she got paired up with the only prominent male age-appropriate character that existed at the time who was both easily and quickly recognizable to the audience and not Huey, Dewey and/or Louie.

* If they live in a city called Duckberg, why are most residents dogs? I mean you will only see another duck person if they are important.

** In fact, "Duckburg" must not be taken as "Burg of ducks", but as "Burg of Duck"; it's not named after the species but after a ''person''. What person you ask ? As it turns out, Donald Duck himself (see this story: http://coa.inducks.org/story.php?c=H+94122), who during a time travel adventure saved Duckburg's founder from certain death. Said founder was grateful to the duck and named his new city after him.

** One explanation I've read says that licensing issues were at play. If Donald were the star/had a major role, then all Donald toys and merchandise would have had to have been branded Duck Tales for some length of time, even if the show turned out to be a flop. Disney, the story goes, didn't want to take that chance and so Launchpad was created to fill that part.

** First reason: it is, sadly, common for kids who lose a loved one at a young age to eventually forget what their absent mother or sibling or great-uncle or whoever looked like. Second reason: even if the triplets remembered what their great-uncle looked like when they were kids, when he first returns, they have no idea time travel was involved in his disappearance -- if they ever expected to see Scrooge again, they'd expect him to be 40 years older, so they wouldn't suspect a duck the same age Scrooge was when he disappeared would be Scrooge ''now'' (see also how [[Literature/ThePictureOfDorianGray Dorian Gray]] managed to convince James Vane that he ''can't'' be the man who jilted his sister years ago, as he's much too young!).
