* AuthorsSavingThrow: Even those who don't like the show have otherwise complimented it for, at the very least, showing Donald interacting with his nephews more than he had in ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''.
* AwesomeMusic: That ''rockin''' PopPunk theme song!
* BizarroEpisode: The episode "All Hands on Duck", which was about WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck being recruited back into the Navy and later fighting a giant bomber drone. Everyone in this episode besides Donald and Daisy is for some reason a {{Dogface|s}}.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: One-shot character Nelly the dragon from the episode "Leader of the Quack" is very popular on Website/DeviantArt, at least among fans of [[ChubbyChaser chubby cartoon characters]].
* FanonDiscontinuity: Thanks in no small part to incompatibility with ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', the Creator/CarlBarks and Creator/DonRosa comics, and the overall different tone of the show from what came before. The House of Mouse versions of them also occasionally dress as they did in this series as a MythologyGag.
** Interestingly, the ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' version of the nephews actually made a short appearance in either [[ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures PKNA or Pikappa]], tying that series together with this one (it was also their only appearance in the comic).
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: This show's quite popular in Europe.
* HarsherInHindsight: It's bad enough when one episode has the trio becoming the new [=CEOs=] of a company that sells addictive snacks, much to Donald's sadness. But then you read some of the ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse and realize that Donald's family had been broken apart by greed before. Then it becomes downright ''heartbreaking'' knowing he's not just sad that he's losing his nephews; he's reliving a sad memory from his childhood.
* HilariousInHindsight: The show's efforts to make Huey, Dewey, and Louie more distinguishable by [[DivergentCharacterEvolution making them less identical to one another and giving them separate voice actors]], since that is also what is done with the triplets in ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017''.
* OlderThanTheyThink: Donald has interacted with human characters before in [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts classic shorts]] like "The Autograph Hound" and "Duck Pimples". Furthermore, Carl Barks had wanted to put humans in his Donald comics; the {{Dogface}} extras were a compromise forced upon him by ExecutiveMeddling.
* SoOkayItsAverage: Those who don't hate the show generally feel that it's otherwise okay. If nothing else, it's a pleasant bit of '90s cartoon nostalgia.
* WereStillRelevantDammit: The biggest complaint of the show when it first aired. Aside from being drastically different in tone from previous incarnations of the Disney duck characters, the particular tone it chose was, to put it nicely, painfully contemporary (and thanks to AnimationLeadTime, it was already dated when it aired).
