Under time pressure, Louie moves through the gold to recover the dime and makes it back to the office just as Scrooge enters. Meanwhile, the Beagle Boys have to fight Donald in full mode. They did the same with Flintheart, by directly misrepresenting his background and making him a comic relief villain akin to the beagle boys, when really he's a lot more cunning, and should've been a overarching villain, working as a mirror for Scrooge, showing what he could be, if he isn't careful. Funso's is one of the rare examples where the place is actually a lot of fun, and the adults don't seem too bothered to be there. At the board meeting, Scrooge is frustrated with the board bringing up the issues of budget conflicting with his large-scale and dangerous adventures. If you have a question, a complaint or a suggestion feel free to message the moderators! They reconcile at the end of the episode.
DuckTales Episode 2 Webby is the greatest character to befall television in 2017. He also had a scheme that relied on a tank floating. With the board meeting concluded, Scrooge heads back to his office to check on Louie. Maybe it's just the stuff I've watched recently, but it's something that I've grown pretty tired of. And while it's endearing, it does show the obvious problems with her behavior. As ridiculous as it was to advertise their status as escaped convicts, there was a cockiness and bad-assery to it that was endearing.
However, Scrooge commends Louie on his responsibility and gives him the decoy dime so that Louie could begin building his fortune as well. She presumably meant a non-anthro dog, as there would be nothing exciting about a in a bowtie. Louie convinces Gyro to give him Lil Bulb promising to use the robot for a test run. Dewey mentions that Donald never talks about her and that all Dewey has known about her so far is a picture of Della pushing Donald into a cake. The jokes around them all had me in stitches, though, so I look forward to seeing them in the future! You are allowed to have a different opinion, but being mean to others isn't nice! Fearing the possibility that his mother betrayed Scrooge, Dewey tells Webby to hold off telling anyone, including his brothers, until they know more. For the most part, it's not that interesting until the two plots converge where things get a little bit more awesome but I really didn't like Mrs. Webby: It's part of my character's backstory; grizzled ex-special forces pulled out of retirement for revenge.
Beakley manages to catch a vase before it hits the floor. The subplot was nice too; Donald not taking kindly to Beakley's rule enforcement and purposefully finding loopholes in what she says to annoy her. When brought up about job cuts, Scrooge defends his employees by praising their hardwork and skill. The main plot was pretty simple, but it's both adorable and kinda sad to see Webby's situation, especially considering how relatable it can be; going out with new friends and not making the best impression can be pretty disheartening, and her self-doubt was portrayed really well. My biggest problem with the episode was, of course, Gyro. He also offers Webby a round of safety rules to abide by when riding public transportation. They forgave her quickly and joined her in the ball pit, which was at mid-episode instead of the treacly episode-end aesop.
Cogs are from Toontown Online while the other three are from the original series. Louie quickly loses interest in the financial discussions and decides to get a soda from the vending machine. Dewey notices a letter to Scrooge on the wall, containing an apology written by Della that reveals she had stolen an item called the Spear of Selene. Big Time Beagle in the 2017 series is a pathetic dreamer whose weakness is thinking big when the others follow orders. I really feel they're taking too many liberties with established characters, I'd have no problem with it if they just invented new characters, why completely change characters that's been around for decades? With the boys' encouragement, she unties them and turns the tides against Ma Beagle. Scrooge genuinely wants to show Louie the value of a hard day's work, and even if it doesn't quite go according to plan Or does it? The interactions between him and Scrooge were nice too: they don't quite see eye to eye, but there's no animosity or anything between them. I quite enjoyed their version of the beagle boys it was quite close to the Rosa version if you swap grandma beagle for grandpa beagle, which I don't really care about.
When the dime ends up rolling to Louie, Lil Bulb, now Big Bulb, chases after Louie for the dime. Happy to see Louie in place, Scrooge then reveals that the dime on display was actually a decoy dime; Scrooge keeps the real Number One Dime around his neck for safety. Overall, even if I had my issues with the episode, it was still pretty solid and fun. Back at Funso's, Ma Beagle shows up and scolds her children, telling them that Scrooge is too cheap to pay ransom for his great-nephews and Webby. My guy has a dart gun? Setting the stage with low stakes stories that let you better get to know the characters and introduce new ones.
Scrooge takes notice of Louie's unproductiveness and declares that he is spending too much time in luxury; to teach him the importance of hard work, Scrooge takes Louie to the Money Bin while he meets with his board of advisers. It's no wonder The Beagle Boys decided to go after them. The 1st episode didn't really feel special, it was akin to a 10-page comic story, mainly just there for the laughs, which I definitely feel has its place in a show like Ducktales, and I don't in any way intend to say it was bad. Where do they finally find common ground? That spork scene left me in tears. Dewey: W-Webby, maybe take it down a notch.
Their personalities didn't really get much of a chance to shine, but I'd imagine that'll change over time. Beakley as he won't uphold her rules. While Dewey and Webby head off to the archives, Louie explores the upper parts of the Money Bin and Scrooge's office. No harassment will be tolerated. Did it set up a future storyline, where Gyro messes up? The ban is said to be lifted at the end of the episode so that Funso doesn't get a lawsuit for allowing a kidnapping to happen on the premises. Maybe he did plan for something going awry, though probably not to the extent that it did , both adapt to the situation accordingly. By evening, Gyro analyzes the results of Lil Bulb and its development of sentience.
The effort is for naught however, and Gyro finds himself caught on Big Bulb-still targeting Louie. Interesting also that there are people who're more penny pincher than him. I got easily hooked on the new Scrooge and the boys. So simple yet so perfect. Back upstairs, Louie runs for his life with Big Bulb hot on his trail.
That was not at all obvious, since when has Quackfaster been a raving lunatic? Since the machine requires ten more cents, Louie absent-mindedly takes the Number One Dime to pay for the soda. I don't necessarily mind huge changes to characters That'd be pretty hypocritical, seeing as I adore the new Webby , but Gyro's changes just felt pointless. This show needs to have a good balance of down-to-earth episodes and insane adventure episodes in order to keep it from losing what made it so great in the first place and so far, it's managing to do that. This is lampshaded at the end as Funso's undoes the life ban and gives the kids free tokens to avoid a lawsuit. They were never seen as threatening villains on the show but they were such defining characters to the show that you couldn't really have Ducktales without them.
