'DuckTales' Theme Re-Created With Real Ducks, People! (VIDEOS)

Sometimes the Internet knows exactly what you need without you even realizing it. How about the DuckTales intro made with real ducks? You had no idea it was missing from your life, but now that you've seen it, you suddenly feel whole again.

Anyone who grew up in the '80s with the Disney Channel could sing, "Duck tales, wooo oooo," and then proceed to get that damn theme song stuck in their head for the rest of the day.

The show first premiered on September 18, 1987 and ended on November 28, 1990. Featuring Scrooge McDuck and his three grandnephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, that iconic shot of Scrooge diving into a pile of gold is seared into the minds of many kids from the '80s. But enough boring background. Time to get to the good stuff.


First, the animated version:

And now the real life duck version:

Amazing, right?

Who knew your brain was capable of forgetting so much, yet after watching just a one-minute clip, it all comes flooding back as if you had watched all the episodes a few days ago? I had completely forgotten this show existed until this clip made its way around social media this morning.

In case you wanted to know, the theme song was written by Mark Muelle, who also wrote the theme to Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers. Yet another show my brother and I were obsessed with.

I weep with nostalgia. Seriously, weren't '80s cartoons the best? I know, I know, kids have Frozen and all, but nothing will quite beat "Ch-ch-ch-ch-chip and Dale!" for us old folk out there.

You're welcome. You can go about your day now (with these themes stuck in your head).

Did you watch DuckTales when you were growing up?
