** Fenton Crackshell was extraordinarilly good at counting, and he did become the super hero Gizmoduck. But he also had a big case of bad luck and a tendency to screw things up. And he lived with his trailer trash mother, who would often care more about watching TV than listening to what her only son had to say. Not to mention that he was stuck with dating Gandra Dee, who often was ungrateful or cold-hearted towards him. Of course, we're still talking about a relatively light-hearted cartoon, and plenty of this was played for laughs. But the poor guy deserved all of the breaks, that he could ever catch...

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Gandra Dee gets a lot of flack from fans because of how she treats Fenton Crackshell in some of her episodes, but in at least two of them, she isn't completely in the wrong. ** In ''Metal Attraction'', she is either an ungrateful bitch for not thanking Fenton for the lengths he goes to make her happy, or she is justified in complaining that he is overdoing it.

** Some fans feel that season two was inferior to the first and that it had weaker animation and missed the adventure stories that made up season one. Others felt that the second season was just as strong as the first.

** Fenton. He was extraordinarilly good at counting, and he did become the super hero Gizmo Duck. However, becoming Gizmo Duck is the one time when he finally feels like he's worth something. But he also had an extreme case of bad luck. Not to mention that he was stuck dating Gandra Dee, who often was ungrateful or cold-hearted towards him.

adding information
* HilariousInHindsight: In "All Ducks on Board" The Phantom Blot was boasting about how evil he is by saying "I am the Phantom Blot! I make Darth Vader look about as scary as a hood ornament of a 53 Buick! Compared to me, Dr. Doom is a wimp!" Guess what franchises Disney eventually got ownership of?

While doing so, he learns what it's like to be one of his own employees. When he gets his memory back, he makes a number of changes that benefit his employees. Remove the amnesia element and you have ''Series/UndercoverBoss''.

* BaseBreaker: Fenton/Gizmoduck is an interesting case since the love/hate reactions he gets often stem from whether a fan encoutered him first on DuckTales or DarkWingDuck. For fans who watched the former first, he's often an EnsembleDarkhorse as is shown below on this very page. For fans who met him when he cameod alongside St. Canard's resident vigilante hero, he's often not nearly so well liked. But then, if these second group of fans goes back and retroactively watches DuckTales, they often warm up to Fenton/Giz after seeing him fleshed out and with a real backstory other than just DW's rival. See RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap.

** In "Metal Attraction", she is either an ungrateful bitch for not thanking Fenton for the lengths he goes to make her happy, or she is justified in complaining that he is overdoing it. ** Was Gandra despising Fenton because filming her for the Pep commercial ruined her reputation in "The Big Flub" uncalled for, or did she have every right to be angry at her boyfriend because of the town's backlash to a product that Fenton didn't bother to test before releasing?

** The episode "Blue Collar Scrooge" is not subtle at all about its themes of relation between workers and bosses, and the workers' rights. But its themes are [[ValuesResonance important to this day]].

* BizarroEpisode: "[[Recap/DuckTalesS1E3LuckOTheDucks Luck O' The Ducks]]" which sees Scrooge and co. head to Ireland and stay in a castle populated by humanoid leprechauns. No, not Disney dogs or ducks, actual little humans.

Adding another perspective on Gandra Dee, because I do not dislike her and have a different interpretation of her examples listed under Karma Houdini.
Added DiffLines:
