Sporting one of the catchiest theme tunes of all time, DuckTales was actually based on Carl Barks' original Uncle Scrooge and 'Duck' comic series, which were created during the mid-50s. Barks' comics were so brilliant, they ended up inspiring the likes of Steve Spielberg, Osama Tezuka and Will Eisner. It's a bit of a left-field choice, but DuckTales was such a popular show that is spawned four seasons and a movie. It was a big hit with children and adults, as Scrooge McDuck and his three nephews would travel on wild adventures around the world. The cartoon featured some great villains, and a comical lead character, whose greed knew no bounds. Of course, with DuckTales being a Disney production, the animation in the show is near faultless. DuckTales managed to find the perfected mix of adventure and comedy, and it left many viewers questioning how a character like Launchpad McQuack was still a qualified pilot, after years of constantly crashing aircraft. It is arguably one of Disney's better cartoons, and it holds a great deal of nostalgia for many people. Interestingly enough, it was the first syndicated Disney cartoon ever made, which later paved the way for classics such as Darkwing Duck and Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers.
