In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit.

These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade

DuckTales

259 points · 6 months ago · edited 6 months ago

I took my 13 year old daughter to a gaming convention. We were in the main auditorium waiting for the keynote speech, there were probably 800-1000 people there.

The audio/video people were playing random nostalgic songs on low volume as people were finding seats. Background music.

The Duck Tales theme song came on. Nobody reacted to it, they kept shuffling in their seats and chatting among themselves.

Until it came time for the chorus. Everyone old enough to remember the show, all went "Woo-ooo" at the same time. Hundreds of people, all at once.

My daughter was in utter disbelief. "Dad, what just happened? How did everyone know to do that together??"

Life is like a hurricane...

Here in Duckburg

Race cars, lasers, aero planes,

It’s a duck blur.

Might solve a mystery

Or rewrite historyyyy!

Yes, it's a pretty catchy song even with the lyrics. Not at all what I originally pictured, but nice nonetheless.

Unbreakable. They alive damnit. It's a miracle!

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt theme song is the best ever. Hands down. And the way they integrated it into the first episode was awesome.

But females are strong as hell!

I watched less than five episodes months ago and I’m STILL singing it from time to time

There's only 104 days of summer vacation

And school comes along just to end it

So the annual problem for our generation

Is finding a good way to spend it.

Like maybe building a rocket

Or fighting a mummy

Or climbing up the Eiffel Tower

Discovering something that doesent exist

or giving a monkey a shower

Surfing tidal waves

Sanford and Son. No shit, it’s my ringtone and when it goes off people are confused, then smile as they recognize it.

Great show and people associate that intro with what was perhaps a happier time, back when life had more color and warmth, more hope and less cold grey drudgery.

Scrubs. Yet to meet anyone who doesn’t sing along with ‘...I’m no superman’

In the not too distant future

somewhere in time and space

Mike Nelson and his robot pals

are caught in an endless chase

Pursued by a woman whose name is Pearl,

an evil gal who wants to rule the world.

She threw a few things in her purse

And in her rocketship she hunts him all across the universe.

I'LL GET YOU!!!

"I'll send him cheesy movies,

The worst I can find (la-la-la).

He'll have to sit and watch them all,

And I'll monitor his mind" (la-la-la).

Now keep in mind Mike can't control

Where the movies begin or end (la-la-la) He'll try to keep his sanity

With the help of his robot friends.

ROBOT ROLL CALL!

Cambot! (You're on!)

Gypsy! (Oh, my stars!)

Tom Servo! (Check me out!)

Croooow! (I'm different!)

If you're wondering how he eats and breathes

and other science facts (la-la-la),

Just repeat to yourself, "It's just a show,

I should really just relax..."

for Mystery Science Theater 3000!"

One thousand years ago, superstition and the sword ruled. It was a time of darkness. It was a world of fear. It was the age of gargoyles. Stone by day, warriors by night. We were betrayed by the humans we had sworn to protect, frozen in stone by a magic spell for a thousand years. Now, here in Manhattan... the spell is broken. And we live again!

We are defenders of the night. We are GARGOYLES!
