DuckTales 2017 (not to be confused with the original DuckTales), sometimes known as simply DuckTales, is a 2017 animated TV series set in an alternate continuity of the comics, although it is mostly based on comics by Scrooge's creator, Carl Barks, and the original series with the same name, thus being a reboot.  


After not speaking to one another for a decade, Scrooge McDuck is reunited with Donald Duck after he and his three nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie move into McDuck Manor. The presence of the newcomers rekindles Scrooge's spirit of adventure, leading the group to go on numerous new treasure-hunting expeditions, while the nephews and their new friend Webby uncover the truth behind what caused their uncles to become estranged and retire from adventuring.
