Back in the day when I was a teenager, I spent many hours with my niece, Margo. I was cool and mature, but when she settled down to watch DuckTales, I sat beside her. And I watched. And today, watching the series with my son, I remember what I liked about this animated series.

The most notable characteristic of DuckTales is that it brings familiar faces, animated faces that have been loved by decades full of children, to a new audience. The children who watched DuckTales in the Eighties and Nineties have grown, and some have children of their own. The children who watch it now will have the same needs that those children did, but their perspective may be different. Times have changed. What hasn't changed, though, is the timeless need to laugh. Including 24 episodes, this three-disc Volume 3 boxed set delivers laughter to young and old alike through the clever wit and observations of various characters, including Scrooge McDuck, his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Launchpad McQuack, and Gyro Gearloose.

This collection has something to offer in the way of moral, as well. Though Scrooge McDuck's main motivation seems money in most situations, when troubles arise and choices have to be made, it is his family and friends about whom he is most concerned. With a sunken treasure of McDuck's own making at the bottom of the ocean waiting for him to retrieve it or for the Beagle Brothers to steal it, it is his nephews who get his undivided attention and the wit of the nephews, childhood role models, who hatch the plans to rescue McDuck's fortune and pride.

Animation has few limits, and this set proves that as it offers adventures that seem to jump straight out of a child's imagination.
