Disney XD Previews Goofy's First Appearance in Ducktales Season 3
With the all-new season of Ducktales approaching, Disney XD has previewed Goofy's first appearance in the series in a short teaser video on youtube. The new clip features Goofy (voiced by Bill Farmer) coming to Donald's (Don Cheadle) rescue. The episode, titled "Quack Pack!." finds Scrooge McDuck and his troublesome nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie stuck in their own '90s family sitcom. Think Family Matters, but animated.
Jaleel White from Family Matters' will guest stars as Gene the Genie. The family isn't quite themselves as they discover the planned family photo shoot might just be a part of a bigger "wish" gone wrong.
The new season promises even more new character appearances and cameos, including Daisy Duck, and characters from Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers, Talespin, Darkwing Duck, and The Wuzzles. As for goofy, his character looks extremely similar to the 90's era goofy that older audiences grew up with. Ducktales co-creator Francisco Angones recently spoke with Comicbook.com and said
"With Goofy, it was definitely incorporating the version of Goofy from Goof Troop with the version of Goofy from Goofy Movie," "We kind of said that there's a unified theory of DuckTales, which is that every version of everything you know still exists somewhere. We're going to try to provide, no matter where you know these characters from, we're going to provide you with a version that feels updated, but recognized."
"One of the cool things about all the cameos is that some of them are smaller cameos, some of them are bigger returning characters that'll come back,"
"Sometimes like with Goofy and with Daisy Duck, you want to use the classic versions of those characters that you're going to use. For other things, like with Kit from Talespin, to Gosalyn and some Darkwing Duck-ers coming up this season, and a couple of other people that I'm not going to spoil. It's about: if we were rebooting Talespin, how would we do it? If we were rebooting Darkwing, how would we do it? Using the same kind of creative ethos that we used to build DuckTales, and using that same critical thinking towards those other shows that we love as kids."
Season 3 of DuckTales will premiere with two episodes on Saturday, April 4th at 10 AM on Disney XD
