Song of the Week: "DuckTales"

Saturday Morning Slow Jams with a nice and easy rendition of probably my favorite cartoon theme song of all time. Seriously, I sometimes gauge future friendships by how much of a Duck fan you are. POW!GRL on vocals. Love this. Love it.

Seems like Duck Tales is on the minds of a lot of people lately... 2 Cartoon Network shows have referenced it lately... Clarence with a cut away scene of the main character swimming through a giant pool of "Clarence dollars" much like Scrooge McDuck (while the music vaguely resembled the DT theme song), and Steven Universe which refrenced it in a more obscure way.... The town was over run with a bunch of those little plastic balls you get from quarter machines (with little guys in them), and Steven was asked how he moved through them... To which he replied that he moved like a rich duck (much like Scrooge swimming through his money)...

I hope that show was as influential as I like to believe it was.

I made a Launchpad McQuack joke about a week ago and no one got it. I was disappointed to say the least. By the way, they just posted their rendition of Rescue Rangers! I'm waiting for Thundercats myself...

I was thinking about this the other day, about cartoon theme songs that were actually like GOOD songs. Rescue Rangers, DuckTales, Gummi Bears, the Chipmunks... and then I suddenly thought, wow, I sound just as crazy to myself as my mother did to me when I was a kid...
