Rein-Toon-Ation: Quack Pack (1996)

Disney didn't quite revive their late 80's adventure series, DuckTales, but they did bring Donald Duck back to daytime television, along with his now-teenage nephews, Huey, Dewey, & Louie, in Quack Pack, which was added to the Disney Afternoon block in 1996. That was the good news. The bad? The show lasted one season only.

The producers reportedly used Donald's solo shorts as an inspiration for the new series, rather than as a sort-of continuation of DuckTales, which is why you don't see Uncle Scrooge or any other supporting characterf from that series. There was a villain to be dealt with from time to time, particularly, The Claw (Frank Welker), though we won't see him in the following video.

I never saw the show, so I can't honestly rate it. Anyway, here's the series opener:
