Very fun episodes, particularly the 87-Cent Solution.  Glomgold is hilarious and I agree that bit with him at the funeral was the funniest.  I can't get enough of his over-the-topness, like him celebrating loudly at being the richest duck in the world.  Donald made me laugh too with his "He was too young!" declaration at the funeral.

Della is finally back but poor Donald just missed her.

Ahhhhhhhh. This is just what I needed today. A competently written emotional story that didn't get too dark.

It was great to have Della finally reunite with Scrooge and the boys. Of course it's an adjustment for all of them, but it was handled with the right amount of realism. Poor Della was trying too hard, which was understandable.

Poor Donald is now a prisoner on the moon! Hope Penumbra will help him out.

She's got to be able to understand him, which might be a challenge.

Great episode and they handled the adjustment in an emotional and realistic way.  I only hope the reunion with Donald and Della can be sooner rather than later.

Some funny gags, like with the cake and air gun.

The bit with the names was pretty great. "They were supposed to be named Jet, Turbo and Rebel! I told Donald! I wrote it down in case no one understood him!"

Also, "Huey wears a hat and his hue is red" was hilarious because that's how a lot of people have differentiated the nephews before. Huey - red hue, Dewey - blue, because dew is water, Louie - the other one.

I also liked how the nephews reacted to Della's return. They are all very different so they all had very different reactions. And the family meeting about it was pretty cool.

Of course, we have the Moon Plotline. So Donald's up there now with a hostile force that has been manipulated by its leader to see the Earth as a threat. Yet, Penumbra, who realized she was wrong about Della and that she was played by the leader is going to interact with Donald who she was told she reminded Della of.

So the thread that binds them is already there. And it seems that this will culminate in the Moon invading Earth and that's maybe how Donald gets back. Maybe he and Penumbra make a break for it early and are able to warn everyone?

"I could've been Turbo!" I wonder if Della will realize that she met Dewey one Christmas when she was younger.

That's exactly how I learned to differentiate between the triplets. Red is the brightest hue, water dew blue, and (unfortunate but alliterative) leftover Louie.

The triplets reaction was refreshingly realistic that at least one of them be reluctant about it.

Who gets stuck with all the bad luck? No one, but Donald Duck. Poor Donald.

I was hoping that the first adventure with Della would involve all three boys, but I guess since Dewey was the one most involved in uncovering her disappearance he got the honor.

OMG, they were singing Powerline! *screams*

I screamed too! I love these Disney Easter eggs!

Scrooge and Glomgold being handcuffed together was fun.

The Disney Now App has up to Raiders Of The Doomsday Vault. Is that the most recent episode?

Aaaaaaand binge complete!

I’m so glad they introduced Ms. Owlson. She has been a real joy to watch as a foil to Glomgold. I think my favorite gag was her just deadpanning she cut Glomgold’s dramatic entrance budget.

Yay Lena's back! Glad that Violet wasn't evil and now has her own girl squad.

LOL at the librarian calling them nerds.

LOVED Launchpad and Beakley bonding over Darkwing Duck! Speaking of which...

Catching up with the last two episodes:

Of course Webby automatically figures out Fenton is GizmoDuck. And of course the love interest turns out to be a spy.

The Darkwing Duck episode was awesome! So the original DW/actor becomes the villain while the new actor -- DRAKE MALLARD -- becomes the new DW.

"This is the most eloquent Launchpad has ever been!"

He knows a lot about this one thing."

I love how the episode was kind of a commentary on all the reboots being made. Yes they're unnecessary but the fans are way too harsh sometimes. I mean, the actors are making money off it, but most of the time they really do genuinely love the original show and try to do justice to it. And they don't always deserve the backlash from Twitter -- sometimes the reboots turn out great. I mean, THIS show is a reboot and we love it!

Kind of ironic coming from Disney and all their reboots -- I wonder if the timing of this episode was done on purpose with the new Aladdin coming out.

Since Della thinks Donald and Penumbra are alike, it would be funny if she were like, "What's wrong with all you stupid people, I can understand him perfectly!".

I loved every second of this episode. I even forgave the lack of the theme song when the logo was in Darkwing Duck colors.

The foreshadowing of the twist at the end we got from the "Darkwing Duck" episode they showed at the furniture store.

Dewey's hashtags and reaction to finding out that Scrooge owned a film studio and him dancing over the footage of the finale.

Scrooge not seeing a film since 1938 and needing all villans to have mustaches to twirl.

As a fan of the "Ice Cream and Blood" trilogy, Edgar Wright being the voice of Alistair Boorswan was awesome.

Drake and Launchpad being super nerds together, although if Drake's collector's item was so rare, there is no way he'd let it get that close to a hot iron.

The studio guard who didn't recognize Darkwing Duck was voiced by Tad Stones, creator of "Darkwing Duck".

I just really, really hope that Gosalyn shows up.

No more new episodes until September...

The Darkwing Duck episode was GREAT.  I loved it.  Everything about it was perfect though I was wondering where Mrs. Beakley was after Launchpad got her hooked on the show.

No new episodes until SEPTEMBER?!  This show has the worst scheduling.  Is Season 2 over or is Season 2 just being spread out through an entire year?

A few other moments in the various episodes that made me laugh...

The librarian muttering nerds at Webby and her new friend.

Beaks being confused as to the relationships between the various ducks.  Whom I'm going to assume are your nephews I think he said.  They made Beaks a much more interesting villain and threat in that episode.

On Amazon, these last four episodes have been Season 4. Whatever Happened to Della Duck started Season 3 and it ended with (I believe) Nothing Can Stop Della Duck.

Basically... I don't know.
