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)
    • Danish, 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.
    • The Disney Channel/Toon Disney versions of this show (and other shows under the Disney Afternoon umbrella) were edited to remove a lot of gun violence, anything dangerous that impressionable viewers could imitate (for this show, it was messing with electric wires), and scenes considered too scary or intense for younger viewers.
    • 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 approximation 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!
    • He is also Big Time Beagle, Baggy Beagle, Bubba Duck and the Terra Firmie King, among others
      • Speaking of the Beagle Boys, Bouncer and Burger, not to mention Duckworth, are voiced by Chuck McCann, who previously played Barney (onscreen) in the Sid and Marty Krofft series Far Out Space Nuts.
    • Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby have a "berry"note  distinctive voice as well, although in this show, the actress in question uses one of her "weirder" sounding voices.
    • Scrooge McDuck was once the proud owner of a talking horse and a a genie.
      • His best friend once spent a week in the year 802,701.
    • Mrs. Beakley was once a a talking golden flute.
    • Flintheart Glomgold (and also Gyro Gearloose) is Goliath as well as Otis, Mayberry's resident town drunk.
    • Ma Beagle (and for that matter Magica De Spell) is also a a flying squirrel, a a gummi bear, and others.
      • In particular, you may notice that Magica sounds suspiciously like an eternally unlucky spy from Rocky and Bullwinkle by the name of Natasha: June Foray uses very similar voices for both.
    • Admiral Grimitz is either the leader of the Autobots, a depressed donkey, or the first voice of Monterey Jack.
    • In The Movie, Merlock was known in other eras as Doc Brown and Reverend Jim Ignatowski.
    • The sultan who imprisons Scrooge and Glomgold in "Master of the Djinn" was voiced by Roger C. Carmel, best remembered as Harry Mudd, in his very last role.
    • Fenton Crackshell / Gizmoduck (Hamilton Camp) is Greedy Smurf and H.G. Wells (and was on a notoriously short-lived late 1960s sketch shownote ).
    • A few episodes feature Pete, a classic Disney villain, who is voiced by Will Ryan, who had previously voiced Scrooge in the TV special, Sport Goofy in Soccermania, which served as a precursor to this show.
  • 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.
