And it is my opinion is that the revival is an absolute disgrace to the original. The animation is dumbed down to Adobe Flash, the ducklings no longer speak like the other ducks and instead speak like everyday humans do which is just so lifeless and unimaginative when compared to how they sounded in the 1987 classic.
I may have been born in 2002, but I used to watch the original all the time as a young boy, and I will forever reject this disgusting impostor as a part of the "Duck Tales" franchise.
It is an awful waste of what could have been a brilliant continuation to one of the most iconic programs in all of animation. And I hate it with a passion.
What would you have thought of the show if there was no predecessor?
Perhaps not as bad, but still nowhere near good. I think the reboot just defecates all over the original.
Eh, I only knew the franchise through comics, and I imagined characters talking normally anyway, so I don\'t see the problem.
I think it's less of the fact that the ducks talk more like humans, and more of the fact that most of the characters talk like "Millennials" and "Boomers".
Why does almost every older animation critic write of most digital looking animation as \"Adobe Flash\"? If you compared DT 2017 to almost any other show actually made in flash, you\'d probably notice a lot of differences in animation. Just because it\'s not hand drawn on pencil and paper doesn\'t mean it\'s \"lazy\" animation.

I...really fail to understand what you mean here. Sure, the show does use a little bit of modern slang, but I\'ve never seen an example of \"boomer\" language with any of the characters. I don\'t even know what a character talking like a \"boomer\" even would sound like.
\"The animation is dumbed down to Adobe Flash\"
This show isn\'t animated in Adoble Flash. Literally seconds of Google could have told you that.
\"the ducklings no longer speak like the other ducks and instead speak like everyday humans do\"
You mean...pretty much every duck except for Donald? If you prefer how they sounded in the original, that\'s fine, but the other ducks didn\'t sound like the kids at all. Don\'t know where you\'re getting this info from.
They were impossible to understand in the original and more importantly they have distinct personalities. The reviewer is looking through rose colored glasses
I have to agree with YAM here. I actually found it a mistake to have Donald talk in a way where I can\'t understand what he\'s saying, that is a pet peeve of mine and a reason why he isn\'t near close to my favorite Disney character (Goofy gets that spot).
And this show has an incredible overarching plot with good character development and good action. So I really cannot see how somebody could hate the show.

How well does it match the trope?
