All 24 episodes of the third volume of "DuckTales" are presented in 1.33:1 full screen. Sad to say, they aren't in the best shape: debris, dirt, scratches and other annoyances plague these episode transfers. Noise is readily apparent, too. As far as image quality, the episodes don't look too soft... but they're not quite sharp, either. Color saturation is pretty decent though. Nothing is exactly bold or vibrant, but there is no smearing - things aren't draby or muddy. The episodes look decent at best, but ugh... all those scratches. 

 

"DuckTales" also gets the English Dolby Digital Stereo treatment. Fidelity is actually pretty high on these tracks, and while the sound elements aren't truly split up, they do mix well together. Dialogue is clear and easy to hear, and the show's music (and that catchy theme!) sounds nice. The sound effects, while not exactly powerful,  to add a little bit of diversity - be it echoes or robot noises, these instances stand out just a tiny bit... but nothing to really draw you in further into what's on screen.

Also included on this release are English and French subtitles.

 

Nada.

 

"DuckTales" is a classic show, and arguably the best and most loved of The Disney Afternoon era. Given its popularity, it is still a little baffling to me that Disney hasn't tried to provide some supplements for the series. (There has to be fans out there buying these sets, if the company has now released the third volume.) Like the previous releases of the show, there isn't much to say other than that you're really buying this for the content (which isn't a bad thing). If you feel like solving a mystery (or re-write history), then by all means, head back to Duckburg.
