Donald Duck, going to a job interview, lets his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie in the care of his own uncle, the richest duck and most daring adventurer in the world, Scrooge McDuck. Huey, Dewey and Louie, after befriending McDuck's housekeeper's adventurous granddaughter Webby, proceed to wreak havoc in McDuck Manor through their reckless messing around with Scrooge's ancient, often cursed artifacts. The resulting chaos reawakens Scrooge's thirst for adventure and he prompty takes the kids (plus his chauffeur Launchpad McQuack who surprisingly turns out to be an amateur pilot) off to look for the treasure of Atlantis. Alas, Scrooge's dishonest rival Flintheart Glomgold follows them, intent on getting the treasure for himself and killing Scrooge in the process… and he has his new employee Donald Duck with him!
Behind the scenesEdit
Woo-oo! is the pilot of the DuckTales 2017 series, and serves as a way to set up both the characters and the new continuity the series will be set in.
It contains numerous references to the past continuity. For instance, Gene's Lamp from Treasure of the Lost Lamp, a Golden Coin from The Treasure of the Golden Suns and the robot Armstrong are all among Scrooge's treasures, and the paintings hanging around McDuck Manor are all paintings by Carl Barks.
The title of the film is a reference to the chorus of the DuckTales Theme.
