"This is no foyer, this is a tomb."

If this is what happens to Webby when she Mabels up, she should Mabel up all the time.

That's definitely the best clip we've seen so far. So excited for this show.

Why are the nephews all assholes now? Is it just because all children are assholes now*?

Because if they aren't, how will they get in some of that CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT and ARC STUFF that's so hot these days?

(Myself I figured that Scrooge is enough for that, but I guess they don't think so?)

If there's one thing the Disney channels adores, it's writing children like assholes.

As the oldest of 4 kids in the family, I remember the dark ages. Even Stevens. Hanna Montana. The mother. fucking. Suite. Life. Seriously, Zach and Cody make Eloise look like a character from Barney and Friends.

Historically, they've always been mischievous little terrors who could only be kept in line by either 1) active participation in an adventure, or 2) a Senior Woodchuck pulling rank. The improvement is in giving them different kinds of trouble to make.

I assumed you were talking about children generally here, especially in groups of three or more.

The important thing here is that Scrooge McDuck so loves stroking his own ego that he'll lead the children he's trying to impress into mortal danger before even bothering to learn their names.

Not really feeling Scrooge's VA but I guess nobody is ever going to top Alan Young.

Scrooge's new VA has the advantage of being an actual Scot.

Just saying.

I guess it's more that Young's performance had a little more warmth to it while the new VA is more pluck and daring, and I guess it fits in that Scrooge is more of an adventure man here and doesn't seem overly concerned with the welfare of these brats at the moment.

Agreed. I like David Tennant, don't get me wrong! But Scottish or not, he misses the mark as Scrooge. He's too young for the role, and his voice is too high.

Alan Young's Scrooge has a pretty high voice too, though.

I think Tennant works well, personally. It's definitely weird hearing a different voice coming out of Scrooge, but, yeah, no one will replace Alan Young. Tennant's at least leagues better than the replacement they got for the Mickey shorts.

They were assholes in the old Disney cartoons, too.

Yeah at least half the old Taliaferro strips were Donald trying and failing to get his hellion nephews to move back to their mom's place.

Protip. All children are assholes to a degree. I was, you were, that sweet niece/nephew of yours... Part of adulting is growing out of that.

Aw. June Foray has passed away.

We still don't know if we're getting Magica in this new incarnation. I know it was always unlikely it would be her voicing her even if we do, but it still would have been nice.

I am pretty sure that Magica's return has been confirmed.

In which case, who'll play her, I wonder.
