Based on Carl Barks' Uncle Scrooge comic series, DuckTales premiered September 1987. The show lasted for four seasons and 100 episodes were produced. The series even spawned a feature film called DuckTales The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp that was released the summer of 1990. I still consider DuckTales to be one the best cartoons of the '80s. The show has aged pretty well and you can currently find three DVD sets available from Disney Home Entertainment in stores.
