Episode Info



Who is Gizmoduck?! is the eighteenth episode of the Disney Channel animated series, DuckTales.

Plot

As Fenton figures out how to be a hero, Mark Beaks offers to hire Gizmoduck and help him defend all of Duckburg.

Synopsis

One day at the Duckburg bank, Donald is denied loans for his accidents and his boat. On Fenton's end, he is trying to open his own bank account just to get a free polo shirt. Just then, the Beagle Boys wearing masks commit a robbery. Donald recognizes the Beagles but is unable to beat them up or free himself. Fenton attempts to sneak his Gizmosuit to a hiding spot when Burger spots him. Fenton says his suit's code word and applies it. Gizmoduck then clumsily fights the Beagles. He then attempts to fire the suits laser guns but spins wildly. Fenton is reminded by the bulb that the system core is unstable. When the self-destruct command is told, Fenton cancels and flies away leaving the bank a total wreck.

Cast

Trivia

  • Absent: Webby, Launchpad, and Ms. Beakley.
  • This is the first episode to use a different closing credits song other than the instrumental version of the DuckTales theme song.
  • This is the first episode where Dewey doesn't have a speaking role.
  • "Waddle Duck" is played as Fenton races to answer hero requests.
  • The mask worn by 'Big Time' Beagle, together with his hockey bat, is an homage to the Disney Animated Series 'Mighty Ducks'. Jennifer Hale, who voices the Duck Mom in this Episode, was one of that series main cast members.
  • Beaks bonding with the Gizmosuit is a parody of the transformation sequence from Sailor Moon.
  • Upon discovering Fenton/Gizmoduck is Latino, Mark Beaks almost exclusively refers to Fenton as "amigo" and "chico." This was an intentional decision on the part of the writers to demonstrate the episode's theme of Fenton choosing who he wants to be in light of people's expectations of him, one of these being Beaks' microaggressions towards him. Frank Angones explained on his Twitter that this hearkens back to their original idea for the reboot's interpretation of Fenton: he is not the token "Latino superhero" but rather a superhero that happens to be Latino.[1]
