Check Out the New DuckTales Theme Song and Opening Credits


Tim Surette

Put your nostalgia to the test and give your earholes a listen to the new DuckTales theme song, soon to be stuck in your head FOREVER.

Disney XD's reboot of the greatest duck caper cartoon of your childhood features a new version of the jingle, sung by former American Idol contestant Felicia Barton -- but is it as good as the original, which is quite possibly the greatest TV theme song since the boob tube was invented? (Is now a good time to also mention that it's 30 years old?)

Give it a listen in the just-released opening credits of the show, which once again follows one-percenter Scrooge McDuck and his trouble-making grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie as they go on duck-ventures. Who knows, they might solve a mystery, they might rewrite history.

The voice cast includes David Tennant, Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, Bobby Moynihan and Kate Micucci.
