I was thinking the same thing. I love her new character design.


EDIT: Also, the new Not-Steve-Jobs character doesn't run, he's riding a Segway, because of course!

We haven't seen or heard anything of Magica deSpell in this yet, but the prominence of the number one dime in that intro gives me some hope that she'll show up at some point.

Mark Beaks is part of the rogue's gallery, so it looks like he's a villain. Scrooge will be fighting a tech bro. I love it.

Ahaha, it looks like that new tech billionaire is being positioned as a bad guy, and the intro has him chasing after them on a Segway.

To complete her transformation into Mabel Pines, Webby has a grappling hook.

Given everyone else short of Gizmoduck is in it, I have no doubt she'll show up.

And, yeah, holy fuck Beakley got JACKED.

It's not even a Segway, it's a hoverboard! The exploding kind!

Gizmoduck's missing because Mrs. Beakley did a Spinning Piledriver on him and he broke.

Yeah I was actually kind of excited to see that this looks like it will make some direct adaptations from the comics.

Also happy to see Donald will be a regular.

Did you notice the portrait behind Donald, in the Birthday short?

It's sounds like they went with "D-d-d-danger lurks behind you" instead of the ridiculous watch.

Thank duckness.

I was thinking the same thing. I found it weird she hasn't been announced yet, nor was in the intro at all.

Maybe they're saving her for the second season? I can't imagine she wouldn't be in the show at all.

Magica is listed as coming back in the February press release on this site, though she's not listed among the characters in the latest press release. Duckworth was also slated as coming back but seems to have vanished.

I'd be shocked if she doesn't make an appearance eventually. They've already got a second season ordered so it's not like they're strapped for time.

As an aside, I learned from that page that Paul F. Tompkins is voicing Gladstone Gander. That's... pretty much perfect.

When Magica comes back, I hope she has more and better plots than "steal the Number One Dime". Rosa was adamant about how the No. 1 was just an ordinary dime with purely symbolic attachment, and that, while Scrooge was inspired by it, his fortunes are all due to his hard work, not to his possession of it.

I think there is comedy to be had in that being true, and Magica refusing to believe it.

Yeah, this is why Magica is an important villain that I hope to see used: her insistence that the number one dime has totemic significance represents the superstition and magical thinking that Scrooge himself rejects as a valid avenue to wealth and glory.

There's a lot of satire in how Magica probably wouldn't need the dime's supposed powers if she stopped blowing all her resources in trying to get it. Barks was an ironist first and foremost and Magica provides another angle from which to examine human foibles.

So put me down as hoping that she's all about the dime.

I thought it was because I've watched far too much Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in the last three years for any sane person to stand, but those pics make it clear: Donald in black is just ugly.

I wonder if they put him back in black for the visual weight of it? It's better than the dress whites they put him in for old Ducktales.

That was because he was actually on shore leave whenever we saw him, I think.

I suspect it's because, if he's going to be around regularly, they want him to be completely visually distinctive from...

... shit, at one point in my life I knew this...

... checks Wikipedia...
