''The Mighty Ducks'' animated series was, to put it gently, [[ShockingSwerve rather a surprise for viewers expecting a comedy series about misfit kids playing hockey]]. This animated series lasted from September, 1996 to January, 1997 on Creator/{{ABC}} (during their transition to Disney ownership- the season after this brought in ''OneSaturdayMorning''), and also aired in syndication (as part of the remnants of what was ''WesternAnimation/TheDisneyAfternoon'').

* LeftHanging: They set things up so another season was possible (Nosedive even breaks the fourth wall about it). One never came (likely due to the deterioration of what had been ''Main/TheDisneyAfternoon''- where the show had aired in syndication- and the establishment of ''Main/OneSaturdayMorning'', which was pretty much all E/I shows to comply with FCC regulations).

* AdaptationalBadass: Wildwing was based on the actual NHL team's costumed mascot [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Wild Wing]]. Wildwing (the cartoon character) was the badass leader of the squad; Wild Wing (the mascot) was best known at that point for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHsckg8_MGM failing to clear a fire pit in a pre-game jump]], and for being featured on [[https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55ec0901e4b0a48732cf47a4/t/55ed5e36e4b097dd68b92fb0/1441619520479/ a notoriously short-lived alternate jersey]].

* ArtisticLicenseSports: Although hockey is accurately portrayed, the Ducks don't respect a few prerequisites for a team...
** Almost {{Lampshaded}} in an episode when Wildwing [[TenMinuteRetirement temporarily leaves the team]], and their manager hires a professional hockey player in a mascot costume.



* CreatorProvincialism: It is set in the same Anaheim of Disneyland. Justified by the existence of the real life Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (current Anaheim Ducks).

Added DiffLines:

* ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy: The Aerowing toy is a lot smaller, and can only hold one Duck (as opposed to the entire crew in the show); it also has puck launchers as opposed to the show's lasers.


Added DiffLines:

** CoolBoat: The Duckfoil, used at least once.
