Trivia: DuckTales

The series:

  • Actor Allusion: Bernie Kopell voices a villainous spy, talking in almost the exact same voice as Siegfried no less.
    • In one episode, Scrooge dealt with a genie. Scrooge's voice actor has dealt with a genie before named Gourdy, and not only that but he was the genie's 'mastuh.'
  • Completely Different Title:
    • Chinese, 唐老鴨俱樂部 (Donald Duck Club)
    • Dutch, Rip, Rap og Rup pň eventyr (Huey, Dewey and Louie Adventures)
    • French, La Bande Ó Picsou (Scrooge's Band)
    • Japanese, わんぱくダック夢冒険 (Naughty Ducks Dream Adventure)
    • Korean, 욕심쟁이 오리아저씨 (Mr. Greedy-duck)
    • Romanian, Povești cu Mac-Mac (Stories with Mac-Mac)
    • Spanish and Portugal, Pato Aventuras (Ducky Adventures)
    • The Foreign Subtitle: In Brazil it was DuckTales: Os Cašadores de Aventuras (The Adventure Hunters).
  • Edited for Syndication: Hence Better on DVD.
    • Only on the Disney Channel broadcast. When Scrooge decides to give Fenton his "shot," the former takes a shotgun and fires it, after which Fenton counts the pellets, leading him to getting hired (after he counts the coins Scrooge threw in the air). While this scene was removed on the Disney Channel, it appears intact on the five-part episode version when it aired in syndication on terrestrial TV.
    • In "Sir Gyro De Gearloose" when Merloon is trying to make Gyro's magnet work by slamming it into the table, he says "Work, Work, Work!", but because of his accent, it sounds like he is saying "F***, F***, F***!" instead. This is why they eventually dubbed that sentence over again. The original VHS tape has the original dialog, but the DVD has the new version of the sentence.
  • Fake Brit: Duckworth speaks in an appoximation of an upper-class English accent, though his voice actor Chuck McCann is from New York.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Frank Welker is a demonic banana!
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Not all episodes were issued on DVD. And some countries only released the movie!
  • Talking to Herself: Russi Taylor did the voices of Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby, so this was an inevitability.
    • Very many of the voices for the more minor characters in episodes were provided by Peter Cullen. There are several episodes where nearly every male character that isn't a main character is him, conversing with each other or not.
    • In the episode "Earthquack" Scrooge is imprisoned by a guard also voiced by Alan Young.
