Probably my favorite of the Disney TV shows - apart from the one off magic that was Wuzzles - and mainly because of the influence from the Barks comics, which was a nice touch and the closest those stories would come to the screen, DuckTales was also actually really, really nicely animated. Like Eisner said back in the day, "we can't have Disney animation going to television and look like c**p", and so those initial three shows - Wuzzles, Gummi Bears and DuckTales - were given attention and fairly lavish budgets for TV.
The result is an action-adventure show that still stands up today, and the spin-off feature was a lot of fun too, spawning the genesis of the DisneyToon Studio. It's high time the final episodes were released to DVD (only three volumes so far, out of a possible four or five) and I wouldn't also say no to a collection of the TV movie compilations (Treasure Of The Golden Suns, Time Is Money) with the feature film lumped in too.
But why the sudden trip down DuckTales lane? Because, my friends, I have come across perhaps the simplest but absolutely hysterically hilarious thing I have or will possibly ever come across on YouTube.

In one word, this is sheer brilliance.
