The Mighty Ducks

Go To

The Mighty Ducks movies were a popular series of films, reminiscent of The Bad News Bears, where a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits play hockey and get into various misadventures and manage to work things out just in time to win the championship game or whatever.

The Mighty Ducks animated series was, to put it gently, rather a surprise for viewers expecting a comedy series about misfit kids playing hockey and who instead got a cartoon about anthropomorphic alien ducks playing hockey — and fighting crime.


There's also an actual hockey team in the National Hockey League, which was called Mighty Ducks of Anaheim from its creation in 1993 until Disney (responsible for both the films and the TV series) sold the team in 2006 - it's been the Anaheim Ducks ever since.


How well does it match the trope?
