* SnarkBait: Many Disney fans consider the show as this, given it chose to be [[DenserAndWackier outlandish]] and [[TotallyRadical try too hard to be cool]], while also focusing more on the nephews who TookALevelOnJerkass than on Donald. For a great case of snark employment, there's [[http://cloudkicker.50webs.com/RantShack/QP/QPindex.html this collection of recaps]].

* OlderThanTheyThink: Donald has interacted with human characters before in [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts classic shorts]] like "The Autograph Hound" and "Duck Pimples", not to mention the various World War II cartoons. Furthermore, Carl Barks had wanted to put humans in his Donald comics; the {{Dogface}} extras were a compromise forced upon him by ExecutiveMeddling.

* 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'', to much more positive reception.

** The presence of human characters in ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfTheThreeCaballeros'' has been cited by Frank Agones as a similarity that show has to this one to the exclusion of virtually all Disney duck media (though its not entirely accurate, since the "humans" in ''Legend of the Three Caballeros'' are gods and extraterrestrial mummies).

* 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).

* 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''.

* SoOkayItsAverage: For people who gave it a chance. It's not mind-blowing, but it is pretty fun, and it's nice to see Donald actually hanging out with his nephews once more (he only had a cameo in [=DuckTales=]).

pleasant bit of '90s cartoon nostalgia.
* WereStillRelevantDammit: How most fans usually see The biggest complaint of the show.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).

* 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.
