@ducktalestv returns with 2 back-to-back episodes after that really strong premiere back in August. Here's episode 2!
In a show of committed overarching storytelling from the first episode despite their weekly adventures, #DonaldDuck & his 3 nephews move in with #ScroogeMcDuck in Duck Manor, immediately bringing the nostalgia of the classic DuckTales back with the boys creating ruckus with #Webby. That's some way of seriously kicking off the episode & season! But the crux of the episode, to my great surprise, is Webby's story. This is her episode, as she gets to try to be "normal" with the boys as they go to an arcade. Webby has been raised in the Duck Manor by her grandma, #MrsBeakley, and to see the fish (duck?) out of water scenario with Webby experiencing things as simple as a bus ride for the first time is refreshing. The boys, initially hesitant to bring Webby with, ultimately warm up to her & accept her for her personality by the end. Also, the "house rules" gags with Beakley & the rebellious Donald have a lighthearted stroke. And yes, the episode features the debut of the #BeagleBoys & #MaBeagle, setting the stage of many altercations with Scrooge & the Duck family, I'm sure. Finally, the new animation style has totally cozied up with me & the voice acting across the board continues to be fantastic!
Webby's arc of her fitting in with the triplets is enjoyable to watch, but the arcade setup is mediocre. It's not bad, but it feels weighed by clichés more than it needs. Plus, the Beagle Boys' debut feels a little foamy as they aren't given their due spotlight as villains because the story is dominated by Webby's character arc. Overall, this episode is a little step down from the stellar premiere.
Seeing Donald go ape(duck?)shit on the Beagles & take them out, much to the shock of both Beakley & my own, is vintage Donald down to the tee.
