I'm user tharpdevenport over there. Those were the relevent quotes I was refering to post above in this thread, but couldn't find at the time.

I'm not goinmg to bother to sign the petition, not because I don't believe in it, but because the quotes show plain as day they got other things to do, with more things in the pipeline (stated elsewhere), so a petition isn't going to change what Intrada is doing.

Now, if they ever say they'd want us to sign it to find demand (kind of like what LLLR's did with the TOS box before hand), I'd totally be there.

I'm so in for a DuckTales release.
And while I don't really care about the Rucker/Chase music (it's more of this "typical" patronizing cartoon-music everyone seems to be doing for kid-cartoons which I don't like much), Ron Jones' thematic, fun and very emotional approach is pure gold.

Hell, I still watch the show today because it's so much fun because of the music...

By the way, always hang on to hope. While it's not high on my list, that's mainly because so many other scores are. I have lots of wants still. People sometimes say there's not much left to release but I sure can come up with a list a mile long. Old scores from the 1930's and 1940's, 1950's, stuff I grew up hoping for in the 1960's and 1970's, endless TV scores, episode scores, expanded stuff by the dozens, countless treasures in the Disney vaults, you name it.

So your Ron Jones hopes are certainly worth holding on to as well. smile


Soooo in about 50 years. razz

Oh you lucky ducky you:
https://www.nerdist.com/2015/02/ah-ooh-ooh-all-new-ducktales-series-coming-to-disney-xd-in-2017/

Grab your top hat and get ready to dive into a sea of gold coins, because DuckTales is getting a new series! That’s right, Scrooge McDuck, his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald Duck will all be back in 2017 on Disney XD.


While there’s no word yet what the specific premise will be, Disney XD Senior Vice President, Programming and General Manager Marc Buhaj remarked that the new series will bring the original show’s “same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation.”


Maybe now some reconsideration for a score release will occur, if not Disney themselves asking about it happening to conincide with the new series.


And what a nice situation -- Ron Jones is still alive and scoring. Bring him back, if he's available, and bring back the theme song, and then we can see what they have in store for us.

Copy and paste from the Non-film score board:

If it looks anything like the new Mickey Mouse cartoons, (and that is a foregone conclusion) it's gonna be total crap.

But I'm in if this means getting a soundtrack released of the original series.

Yeah, anything new from TV Disney that I've seen samples of, is awful. The culture there seems to be a little rotten, too. But hopefully they have good sense to grab on to some Ducktales and not ruin them.


It's not like the original series was spectacular, but it was a fun larf.

maybe now Disney can finally find the motivation to release the rest of the show on DVD.

i hope so and I hope for the soudtrack too, which is my most wanted animation series soundtrack.

That's a little misleading. Several of the Mickey shorts (Yodelberg in particular) are excellent. I wouldn't call them total crap. And yes this is from a Mickey nut who has seen all of them.

On the other hand, I'd love the Jones' music. That would be amazing.

Personal opinion of course, but the characters are retarded looking and the animation is modern day junk. They have no personality behaviors other than acting high on crack, and they are fundamentally unappealing and unfunny. Now the backgrounds while very art deco are very nicely rendered for what they are. (Though I prefer semi realism)

I LOVE the new Mickey Mouse cartoons, so there! I'm glad they are making them and hope they make more.

And the best thing about DuckTales is that it finally got me to pay attention to Carl Bark's Duck comics, now coming out in complete fabulous editions from Fantagraphics. If I were getting someone to read comic books, this is where I'd start.

They'd read even better accompanied by a new release of Ron Jones scores!

Don't forget about Don Rosa's Duck stories also from Fantagraphics. And that doesn't even mention the Floyd Gottfredson Mickey Mouse strips that Fantagraphics is releasing. All are wonderful. It's a good time to be a fan of such classic stuff. Yes even classic film scores.

They better get cracking on the new Duck Tales episodes, considering that Alan Young is about 95 (although he sounded almost exactly the same in the new Duck Tales video game).

I dispute that claim (witness The 7D, Sofia The First, Wander Over Yonder and Gravity Falls on the animated side, plus Liv And Maddie, I Didn't Do It and Austin & Ally in terms of liveaction).

I'd love Jones' Duck Tales on disc. When all those cues were added to his site those years ago I was in heaven. Let's do this.

And by "let's" I mean "could a label please."

With it being Disney, only Intrada could do it, and they've stated in the past that they won't do box sets. So it would have to be something like they did with BSG, which was four separate volumes of music. Would they be strong sellers? I'm not sure they would.

Aw, do we have to start *that* again?

Right now the news that DuckTales is coming back is the most trending news on Facebook. Nostalgia plays a HUGE part in marketing, and I really think naysayers sell this score's nostalgia factor short. Sure, it may be questionable how many past fans would be able to remember any specific cues off the top of their head since it's been so long, but I remain convinced they only need hear a few notes from the cues that got a decent amount of airtime throughout the series, and that would do it. Just start up the Beagle Boys' theme and see if that doesn't elicit a reaction.

Nostalgia won't get a non score fan to purchase any CD of score, most especially one of a cartoon.


If nostalgia moved non score fans, The Ron Jones ST:TNG box would have sold way more, all the limited edition Trek movie scores would have sold out instead of just one title, and "The Brave Little Toaster" would have sold more instead -- as I recall -- being discontinued. That's off the top of my head.
