All new adventures in Duckburg return to the Disney Channel at 8am today when the second season of DuckTales resumes it's run.
The rebooted 1980s show stars David Tennant in the iconic role of Scrooge McDuck, with Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan voicing the mischievous triplets Huey, Dewey and Louie. The cast also includes Kate Micucci as Webby, Toks Olagundoye as Mrs Beakley, Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack and Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck.
Today's episode is intriguingly entitled ‘What Ever Happened To Della Duck?!’
Della Duck is the twin sister of Donald Duck and long-lost mother to Huey, Dewey and Louie. She made her first-ever animated onscreen appearance in the first season and was first mentioned in a Donald Duck newspaper comic strip and animated short film in the late 1930s. As daring as her Uncle Scrooge and as stubborn as her brother Donald, Della is a fearless pilot and explorer. As kids, Della and Donald were Scrooge’s original adventure crew, eager to chart the unknown.
Leading up to the first season finale, the boys discovered the truth behind their mother’s disappearance when Scrooge revealed that Della took his secret rocket ship, got caught in a cosmic storm and became lost in the dark abyss before the triplets were hatched. In the cliffhanger season one finale, a destroyed rocket ship appears on the moon, and, as the screen pans in, Della can be seen longing for her sons while watching a newscast on an old television screen...
Saturday’s episode sees Della struggle for survival against dangerous elements of the Moon, as she looks for a way to get back to her family on Earth.
